Ren Fairs Move To Ye Old Internet

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hark! Renaissance fairs doth move into the Internet world.

Renaissance fairs are filled with colorful characters, and the web series All’s Faire, which premieres November 17 on allsfaire.tv, explores the wenches, jesters, and jousters that make up the role-play events.

Creator Thom Woodley admits he was “never into ren fairs,” but did know a girl in college who dropped out of school to become a full-time “mudwench.”

To capture the Middle Ages accurately, Woodley attended many Renaissance fairs and even shot a few scenes on site.

However, he didn’t participate in jousting competitions or many other activities because, “It’s pretty intimidating if you’re not there in costume or know the lingo.”

Woodley is excited to make a comedy series that “doesn’t make fun of ren fairs” because they’re “more than just dorks in tights.”

He’s truly impressed with the way participants stay in character the entire day.
