3/27/15 — Estrella War, or, In Which Our Hero Spends the Whole Week in Their Booth

One of these years I’ll get more pictures of one of the big wars I get to. I swear. Promise.

…probably not.

I start with the traditional Here Is What My Booth Looks Like shot. I made it colourfuller! And put more things in it!

One of the new things in my booth is Evocations from October’s Market. My friend Melissa has a HORRIBLE job (like, I wanna punch her boss on a regular basis, and I live halfway across the country) and these are her first steps towards having a job that don’t suck. I think they’re pretty good steps.

Loiosh got to hang out with his buddy Ginger! Andrea of Alta Cruz was just a couple booths down from me, so the boys got to spend a lot of time together. There was a lot of wrasslin, but I was always laughing too hard to get pictures of that part. Here’s a quieter moment.

My boys napped a lot. Chocolate has gotten to the point where he purely does not give a crap about anything, as long as he’s got his Momma and a warm place to sleep. Look how he’s flopped — a long way from the event a couple years ago where he spent his days hunkered in the stroller (except when one of his old friends came by to visit).

The traditional ‘this was my view all week’ shot. I did get to wander most of Merchant’s Row, in fits and starts, mostly on the way to the booth and back in the mornings and evenings.

Estrella sunset over someone’s royal encampment, late in the war. I love the pageantry.

…and the sense of humour.

Like Brigadoon, like all SCA wars, Estrella must, in the end, fade into the mist for another year.

…or at least into the cloud cover, which made packing up a lot more pleasant than the Arizona sun woulda been.
