Dragon Couple - As the Dryads metamorphasis continues, the Dragon becomes more and more fond of the changes in her. Here she can be seen with her dragon mask and corset at the NC rennaissance festival.
You two are truly a firey couple! The picture turned out great. The panels on the female's torso look fantastic criss crossing. The mask turned out fantastic as well. Always incredible work from an incredible guy. Always a fantastic model from a fantastic model of a wife.
Thanks, I appreciate it a lot. The females is a mask, therefore the eye holes are smaller and they set right up against the face, whereas the male version is a helm so the eye holes had to be larger but I agree, I like how hers looks like a part of her. The tankard cover is another deviation called the dragon flagon. There are close up pics in my gallery.
LOL... the patrons loved us. Ren fest people are so nice. Not sure about the performers at the fair. Some of them didn't care for the attention we recieved. Others that work there were wonderful though. Made a lot of new friends and had a blast.
Yeah, I agree with you on that, the patrons at renfaires are always a laid-back group that are interested in having fun, and seeing a really impressive costume is a big part of that fun, to be sure. I've also gotten some looks from performers who weren't too pleased with their audience's attention straying, so I usually try to stay back behind the crowds when I watch a show. Glad you had fun, though, I hope somehow that we both can get to the same faire so I can see your gear first-hand!
Yeah, it would be cool to cross paths. Maybe I'll have to trek up to MI. I want to see your gear first hand as well.
I had one shop keeper complain because I drew a crowd in front of his shop. Oh gee...I wouldn't want a bunch of people in my shop to buy things. Theres this other shop keeper that sells wooden dragon sculptures that are really awesom and he loves it when I come by. LOL I'll stand next to one of his sculptures and assume the same pose. Hope it helps his sales. Its all in fun and I really don't want to bother or offend anyone but some people really need to lighten up.
It's a shame you got grief from a vendor, I've never had that happen to me at any of the faires I go to. Like you, I try not to bother anyone, and there certainly are some who seem determined to be offended no matter the merits. Still, most of the crowds I've seen at faires are quite genial, really into a cool costume, and more interested in some good fun than causing a scene. Glad you had fun with the dragon-sculptor. That must have made a great photo-op!
