Getting Ready for the Elf Fantasy Fair

Gah! Elf Fantasy Fair! If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know how much I love and look forward to this event every year. I haven’t missed one single fair since 2007!
I think they renamed the event to Elfia this year, but I’m not exactly sure… Vague stuff going on there! However it’s called, it’s an amazing event centered around people with a love for fantasy. The most amazing thing about this festival is the incredibly warm and tolerant atmosphere; you can come here and feel beautiful and loved no matter who you are. I think that’s a wonderful thing and am all up for it!
A huge part of Elfia are the costumes. Some people put serious effort into it and come out in the craziest, most awesome costumes. I’m not that hard-core, but I cannot deny the love I’ve had for dressing up since I was a child. In this video I’m going to show you my favourite fantasy festival outfit, and how I do my hair and makeup.
