Very fun. Much steampunk. So wow.
Haha, ok, so I've probably mentioned this before, but one of my favorite Christmas traditions is going up to the Dickens Fair in San Francisco. We had a good amount of people go up this year... Anne and her boyfriend Anthony, Padfoot, Lauren (she's Padfoot's friend, I don't really know her much...), and Alana. Anne's mom drove us up.
|Teh Ride Up|
A lot of Whovians go to the event, so we decided to dress up from Doctor Who! Padfoot went as Fem!Ten, Anne went as Clara, Alana went as Rose, and I went as the TARDIS (the same dress I made for the 50th).
The ride up was pretty fun. We stopped at Starbucks. We sang a few Christmas songs. I tried to not react too much to Anne and Anthony's "omg i love you so much" attitude. I just can't do the puppy eyes/hand holding/various other borderline PDA! I just... bleh. I just... well, you get the idea. I had to sit with them for over two hours.
BUT THEN WE ARRIVED! AND THERE WAS GENERAL EPICNESS! AND PADFOOT WAS THERE! I already mentioned that... didn't I. Oh, well, I don't see her that often anymore, so yeah, being able to spend time with her is a precious gift. Yep. I forgot my real camera, so you get a bunch of pic's from my phone (which was dying, so the quality's not the best. Sorry.)
|You're 15. You can't possibly be that serious about your relationship.|
|We made it!|
|Go take a look at his stuff here|
|Books! Beautiful books!|
|There was also a music shop. I got to try playing a violin!|
We also went to a few clothes shops. Most places sold hats and accessories, but a few shops were corsets, dresses, skirts, and Victorian-inspired clothes. Yep. Obviously I had to try on a corset, even though I would never pay $400 for one. Oh, well, a girl can dream, can't she?
Padfoot and I tried on dresses at another shop. Her's had a red/green scheme to it, and mine was dark blue with a silvery skirt. With my red wig I looked like Ariel! It was awesome wearing Victorian styled clothes :)
This place had some beautiful clothes. It's where I tried on the dress. Their Website is in construction right now, but if you want to check it out, here it is.
|A jewelry shop had these necklaces. We got a kick out of them!|
Like I said, Whovians! Isn't that a brilliant dress?
Here are some other random pictures from the fair.
|I think this is where people would paint ceramic plates/cups/ornaments and such|
When we stopped on the way home, Alana and I thought it would be funny to take the back seat and see how Anne and Antony would react. We sat down, and waited for them to come out. Anthony opened the door for Anne, and they looked at us with shock and confusion.
Then they both sat in the front and that's when Alana and I decided that we needed to slightly embarrass them while telling them to not forget about us. So obviously we played "Sisters" from "A White Christmas." They started talking to us, so they must have gotten the point :p
Alright, that was a pretty long post. Until next time, my friends! And Merry Christmas!
