Went to the Renaissance fair today, never in my life would I ever even think about dressing up as an elf, oompa loompa, etc as I find that to be semi offensive and cliche as far as being a little person. I always found that to be annoying when people compare us little people to those cliche images.
However, I will have to say I couldn’t help it and had to do it. Out of all places though, I felt as if dressing as a pixie/elf at the Renaissance fair was perfect. Certainly had numerous of stares from the public, but in a way it felt different than the stares I usually get from people just walking down the street. This time, people just chuckled and Aw’d. Now I have a set of elf ears for future cosplay or costumes. Time to bring out my nerd side >:]
