Renaissance Faires are popular all over the country. Some people spend all year preparing for their cosplay journeys to the past the fairs are a portal to. This is a book that will be a great help for anyone interested in attending a Renaissance Faire.

It opens with a short introduction to expectations for the fairs, tools needed for crafting the costumes and accessories, and some tricks and techniques for making what you need.
