That's a natural rainbow effect, kids, as in, I didn't do it on purpose or photoshop it--when I downloaded the pic, there it was! How frakkin' cool is that?
Of course, in order to get that, we had to walk through a downpour, and the whole thing was renamed the Raine Faire for a couple of hours. Just what I really needed a couple days after checking out of a hospital! Only, yeah. Not so much.
Anyway, before and after it rained, we had some fun.
I didn't get many more pics, because of the rain and the mud and the yuck and I said "FNEH!" and put the camera away to keep it from getting utterly ruined. Kevin had a little raincoat for his camera, which I found amusing as he himself wasn't wearing one, and a rain hood for the lens, so he got more pics, including one or two of Martie that I hope to post soon.
The Great Rondini, who is an escape artist and comedian, and....yeah, well, what he did to his joints to get out of 100+ feet of heavy chain with locks and a straitjacket still makes me shiver. Go see him if you get the chance, too.
We saw another show, improvisational, unlisted and at the end of the day, called "NOT DEAD YET!" which involves Willsome and Flourish and the Klass Klown doing things with fire and acrobatics that No One Should Ever Do Ever Never No Lie The End. The Craic Band crashed the stage, as also did Skidmark the Beggar, they really let out all the stops for the last show of the Fest for the year, and the result was the best Ren Fest show I have *EVER* seen. Kevin did get pictures, and eventually I will post some of those, because damn, people, it was a great one-of-a-kind show.
Overall, aside from the two hour rainstorm, I had a good time, although today I feel pretty beaten up. The Pittsburgh Ren Fest has really turned into something wonderful from some fairly humble beginnings, and next year I'm determined to go earlier in the season and maybe more than once.
