In 1977, the year of my birth, one of the greatest film series known to Sci-fi fans across the planet was born: Star Wars. Here’s a tribute to the characters, creatures, and far away worlds that inspired us all… and to the man who started this whole insanity: George Lucas!

One of my favorite things to do in the summertime is hit up a Renn Faire! Or for all you non-geeks out there, a Renaissance Faire.
This past year, I had the incredible opportunity to visit the Original Renaissance Faire in Irwindale, CA. What I love about these festive events is just how in character its attendees are. It’s a perfect opportunity to transform oneself into royalty and join the queen’s court, or perhaps a wench better suits your mood? Whichever character tickles your fancy, you can no doubt immerse yourself in a world of folk who will play along.
Though most renn faires emulate historical periods during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England or Henry VIII, characters from other time periods and countries, like as pirates and Vikings, along with fantasy creatures such as fairies, centaurs, and wizards are also welcome.
As you can see, I’m one of those dorks who takes pride in wearing a costume. So, I put on the purple fairy creation I made a few years back (for another faire, of course), grabbed my video camera, and head out east to see what kind of interesting folk I’d run in to.
Let’s take a peek!
For those of you who are interested, here are the details for this year’s faire:
