Oh Deer: It's never too early to starting thinking about RenFest!

I have been in a total makeup mood lately! So, the Texas Renaissance Festival is around 5 months away and, since it's never too early (for me) to start planning my costume, I thought i'd share some of my progress with you all!

First, a short history!

So, my husband and I looooooove the Texas Renaissance Festival and try to go twice a year. One time as tourists in our everyday clothes, and another in costume! 

I adore Renaissance Faires. They let you transport yourself into this magical kingdom for a day, surrounded by lords and ladies, knights and monks. It's so much fun. 

Last year, I was a fairy:

And my very first year to go, 2008, we dressed up as Link and Zelda!

Ha! I felt like a total nerd and it was 100% worth it. We got a LOT of attention. We also went in 2009 as Link and Zelda again, skipped 2010 and didn't dress up in 2011. Soooooo, this year I want to created a satyr/faun/deer costume and started working on a makeup look,

Let me know what you all think! Would you like a video tutorial on this look?!

I'm not 100% happy with the look, and there are some things I want to change, but that's why it's a test run right?

Anyways, I'll be documenting my progress as it gets closer to October so I hope you guys will enjoy it! Do you guys like halloween, or renaissance festivals? Now, to scrub my face!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Love the shadow under and around eyes! The white dots look a bit off for some reason, but might work in a larger picture with costume I guess. Nifty though. I wish I could go to it, I bet it is fun.
