Faire or Foul?

Winner of 'best artist costume' at a Renaissance Faire:

That she showed up to a Ren Faire in this costume shows me immediately that she has no idea whatsoever what medieval or Renaissance clothing looked like, and has no interest in finding out. That she won a prize for it tells me that the Faire organizers also have no idea and no interest. I am left with only one question: why did they use the word 'Renaissance' when naming their event?

  1. One wonders precisely how 'artist costume' was defined.
