@mrk, she went as giselle last yr, think i saw her at castlefest if she went there aswell. This yr she made an aurora outfit, which was awesome aswell. And yes its the same fair.
It has become the biggest fantasy fair in europe! I heard that on the radio yesterday, it had 26000 visitors last weekend in only 2 days. I had no idea it were SO many ppl.
fairs are getting a big trend in the netherlands, we now also have a EFF in autumn in a diff area(havent been there yet), and we have castlefest in august(3 days, and even an evening with a bonfire and such), keltfest(havent been there), and diff gothic&fantasy fairs throughout the yr. We even had a lill one 1,5 yrs ago in the big church here in Alkmaar(it travels from city to city every yr). they ust have a great atmosphere, not just for ppl who want to dress up, but also for ppl who just enjoy fantasystuff or buying it. Theres always great music, entertainers, acts, you have to experience it to understand it.
My mom went for the first time, finally, this yr, and she cant stop talking about it. She is a bit overwhelmed, but she thought it was just amazing. She even bought a lill necklace with an Elf hanging on it
I can definately recommend it to anyone, even if youre not really into all that stuff, its ust a lot of fun to watch ppl walk around. We have brought new ppl there every time and they all had a great time. And, well, they ust have awesome stuff you want to buy, hahahahaha.
