NAC Ren Faire!

click on the images to enlarge. Above is Marc Anthony, asking the crowd to lend him their ears.
You can see that they decorated this modern building rather nicely!


Lorne happily linking chain mail together. This must have been one of the only slow spots in the day...mostly we were run off our feet!


Well, it WAS Shakespear's birthday, and good queen Bess was on hand to order the entertainment!


Difficult to take a picture with inadequate lighting, but fortunately, I can add some light to the picture. You can see how the lobby was transformed into a Ren Faire. My armour display is on the right, and the shiny floor really reflects the thousand ceiling lights really well.


A random shot of some random characters who forgot their camera! Imagine! Well, here you go guys....a fine pair of medieval soldiers!

The National Arts Centre in Ottawa is our nations most prestigious concert hall...several stages, a massive lobby with a thousand lights, right downtown beside the Rideau Canal. It boasts good but expensive downtown parking, and the very best touring acts like the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Kodo Drummers, and so forth. On Sunday, they held a Renaissance Faire, and I was front and centre, showing off my armours, chain maille, and even doing some judicious hammering on the anvil!

Awesome!! I still wish you could find a way to make it to the Ohio Ren Fest in October. Did you get any good business out of it? I have never been to a ren faire inside.... I guess they do any jousting, huh?
