Steampunk Explorer

I didn't get many photos of the Rivertown Revival this year which is really too bad because it was AMAZING!!!  I felt like I had stepped into a turn-of-the-century circus/sideshow.  So many people decided to dress up.
Here I am:

You can't really see my bustle skirt which is too bad.  It's quite nice. They had all sorts of wonderful vendors and food plus a great kids area.  The kids could make clothespin dolls, watercraft made from toothpicks and wine corks or ribbon wands/bindle sticks.   Here is Noodlebug waving his ribbon wand:

There were giant boxes of fabric strips. You just grabbed a pole and started tying the strips on. It was wonderful seeing all the children running through the event waving their ribbon wands.  I'm sorry to say that Noodlebug wasn't in the mood to wear his costume.  Perhaps next year I can get him in a Huck Finn outfit. 
See more information and photos here. Next up.....September's Handcar Regatta in Santa Rosa.
