This year for the first time ever, I finally headed down and went tot the Gumeracha Medieval Fair and I did not regret one moment of it. Even with the completely windy way we had to take to get up there (I get motion sickness, windy roads are a big “Ewww”)
Oh it was lovely and so authentic and the people that dressed up there really inspired me. My favourite part had to be the Knights or the “Sirs” that took up the sword-fighting.
Gumeracha Medieval Fair
South Australia doesn’t really seem to get big festivals and a lot of the music festival are pulling out more and more, due to “lack of sales”. Even though when the big acts do come out here, they do really well. It was such a lovely day despite the time of year, the weather held out and it was all very magical. It really inspired me to get some kind of costume together foe next year! Except I don’t know what to go as, so that means that I’ve been looking through some of the websites…
And of course there is always eBay… http://www.ebay.com.au/bhp/medieval-costumes
For many little girls we imagine a lot of things, the perfect guy, the perfect house (or in my case, a castle), being the perfect mother, having the perfect Lion best friend, like Rajah from Aladdin…Okay…I digress…Any-ways, there is one other that that little dreamt about…The “princess dress”.
For many of those wondering, this is a “Fact” that I can guarantee that no matter what, every single little girl had a similar dream. I mean it may not have involved a castle, a prince and a whole lot of singing animals, but we all would have that ‘dream’ outfit. A dress, a skirt, a sports outfit…There would have been some kind of outfit going on.
That dress that can make everything better, that dress that fits you perfectly, no matter who nasty a breakup, no matter a argument with your best friend…The dress that makes it all melt away…I think that I have found mine! Unfortunately, I keep having more and more problems with it =S I’ve had to send it back twice and now I am just giving it to a dressmaker friend to fix up. I just keep getting one with a dodgy zip…The best thing though? It was under $40!
It is a well-known fact that when a girl finds that dress, that perfect outfit, everything else just melts away, like there are no other problems in the whole entire world…It hurts how good I look in this dress ~.^
Here’s a picture of the dress, if you press it you can go to the site where it comes from =D I also LOVE that the dress is called “Goddess”…I feel completely like a Goddess in this dress.
