Midwinter fair Archeon

Postby Ebany » Sun Dec 14, 2008 11:22 pm

I went to the midwinter fair yesterday and had a wonderful time - despite the cold and the wind that sliced right through to my bones!! Did manage to take a few photo's before the batteries ran out in my camera so thought you might like to see a couple. At this sort of event (here in the Netherlands at least, it never ceases to amaze me how much time and effort people put into their costumes. Everything from trolls to orks to knights in full armour to faery folk - absolutely stunning!!

If you would have joined our Yule party you would have seen much more pictures of kilts and hairy knees!! 8) 8) 8) :wink: :wink: :wink: But then again, maybe that was the reason you did not come in! Ebany was brave, although he stayed for a very short time! :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :wink: Guess it was too much for you men :wink: :wink: :wink:

I just cannot believe that they are not cold in short sleeves and bare legs - they must breed hardy men in the Lowlands!! :wink:

Well, it wasn't exactly cold in there with several hundred people packed in front of the stage and all bouncing up and down..... the music of Rapalje is somewhat infectious.......... :lol: :lol:

You should MG!! Or to Castlefest!!! I am sure we can work something out for a place to stay! If you come to Midwinter you can stay here, if you like! We have already met then at the Gathering!! :P If we really dislike each other we can always change our minds :roll: :roll: 8) 8) :wink: :wink: :wink:
Castlefest is always great as well, the 1st and 2nd of August, but then I probably will not be here :( :( :( Hate to miss it , that will be the 3rd time in a row! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: My favourite festival!!!
