Oh, I'd have loved to have seen this. I'd walk right up to the first bunch and scream NEE! It is colorful but what's the appeal to pretend to live in a time when life was nasty, brutish and short, as Hobbes but it in Leviathan?

The males look great in mail, even tho it isn't a full suit; but then again, who wants to be identified with "the suits?"

Dommage qu'il n'ait pas plu comme le jour du "garage sale!" je blague, mais la boue aurait aide a rendre la scene plus authentique...
On peut deceler une bonne ambiance.

Bob -nasty brutish and short- that's the past, it expresses the present to moi hahaha.think of modern warfare and how so many young people die of aids.
anyway I guess the past can be as romantic as the present and so here is a double take.

thanks for the photo Nathalie-beautiful as usual.I hope Bob doesn't mind my intervening,I couldn't resist, probably not he seems like he has a sense of humour.

Tous ces gens d'armes pour fêter la rose ! Heureusement, de gentes dames apportent quelques sourires...

The costumes are great, looks like a movie scene. Nice that so many people participate in the festivities.
