The Queen, like all precious jewels, has many facets.

Once of those facets is quite piratical.


Nice, right?

Going to the Renaissance Festival is one of my very favorite things. It is truly my happy place.

I am the Polite Pirate Queen. I tried being a rough, rude pirate but it just didn’t work for me. So, Polite Pirate it is.


Once you start building a wardrobe of garb, you can’t stop. One piece leads to another leads to another. A scarf here, a cup there, a lantern on the belt.

Today, the Queen’s mother agreed to make some new pieces. I want to change it up a little every weekend to match the themes. We found additions for Highland Fling and 1001 Dreams. I am so excited to see how they turn out.


So, even though I have to wait until the end of September to go to RenFest…. I can dream and plan and prepare.

One last picture of the current garb to hold me over….


Queen’s Rule of the Day- Find your happy place and be sure to dress appropriately!
