    On the contrary, that is EXACTLY why I go. These kind of costumed folks crack me up! ...not that I point and laugh.

    Yea, I agree, these folks are why I go. Its fun! Sometime you can learn a lot about specific crafts like sewing and metal working from people that make their own costumes. These folks just look like they would be fun to talk to and hang out with!

    "actually they`d be the reason to GO to one, on side point, What`s up with cup and mug on their belts? "

    Authenticity. People didn`t have disposable silverware or dishes, and eateries were too poor to supply their own to so many people. So people carried their own or ate with their hands.

    I`ve been to the big PA Renaissance Faire several times. The first trips were always great, but then in the following years, it got pretty repetitive. Once I turned 21 it was a good time since they have some great beers, but the sameness of it all, plus the high prices for everything turned me off.

    Good to experience a couple times, then move on.

    Like these three you mean. Feel for the person playing the centaurs back end, particularly as the front end is sporting an ale mug.

    @5Cats...My best guess is that he`s taken on the role of a centaur - part human, part horse. I`m not going to speculate if there`s another person playing the back end or if it`s stuffed and on wheels.

    ive seen pics of that guy around the net in other pics, its stuffed and on wheels...

    I worked 10 years in a merch booth at the one here in ohio. What Dakkar says is true.

    I`ve always wondered why a ren faire myself though. it must go way back and just sort of stuck around. If i had the money, i would create a fantasy festival that would give the people what the REALLY want, the experience of visiting the lands of their favorite medival fantasy world with different themed sections like "Mid-earthland" "Unremembered Realms" "Hyboraville" and "Randland" to name a couple...

    But, I do recant my statement based on the fact that I think centaur costumes are impossible to get right.
    I`d still love to go to one of these. Just not see people like this there.
