Castleton Realm – OKRF 2015

Welcome to a long over due post and update from your local Broken Arrow Photographer, Misha. OKRF is in full swing and I had the chance to attend on opening day.

What is OKRF? the OKlahoma Renaissance Fair….and what can you see and do there?

Dragon's Eye....visit B.A.G.S. in the Pirate Cove.
Dragon’s Eye….visit B.A.G.S. in the Pirate Cove.

Step into another realm…filled with pirates, fae, and royalty. A joust. A mermaid grotto. Wine. Wenches. Kings. and Queens. Are you curious yet?

Oh and I did mention Pirates right? well what would the other realms be without rebels and rogues to make the scenery interesting and entertaining….

You do remember this is the realm of Castleton, right?

Visit B.A.G.S. across from the Pirate stage.

Walk past the pirate stage and BAGS shop into the realm of faeires and mermaids and make believe. You may even see Peter Pan and Wendy. (think “other realm”…it does require some mischief and a little imagination but I think you can manage those)…

Hear the Sirens’ songs …many a ship has sank due to the siren song….but I think the pirate stage will interest you once you listen…”Sirena” (pictured left) will be taking 2016 off so see them this year at OKRF while you can!

opening day, last joust.... Ye Knights of Ole.
opening day, last joust…. Ye Knights of Ole.

Oh and do NOT forget the Knights of Ole…for a joust is held at castleton and what passersby doesn’t want to see the champion of the day?

What do you think of Castelton and the 20th annual Opening Day of OKRF?

Check back for more! It is my goal to visit castleton once each weekend throughout it’s 20th run. Posted here will be the sights I see….so YOU can enjoy them too! Maybe I’ll even see YOU there. 😀

Cinco de Mayo at the Castle!

At the Castle for Cinco de Mayo!

How did you spend your weekend?

I spent mine shutter-bugging at the Castle of Muskogee! The Castle hosted it’s 18th annual opening weekend of “the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival”. The festival takes place every Saturday and Sunday from May 4th through June 2nd of 2013.  It’s a great place to experience new and old things alike. You can see craftsman that still do blacksmithing and ladies that keep the art of spinning alive. You can find jewelry makers, book sellers, clothiers, and all sorts of entertainers at the Castle this month.

Come fly with us at the Castle!

You can see pirates, sword fights, jousting and dancing, a live chess match, belly dancers, and the children can get knighted or become ladies-in-waiting. You can visit the Italian quarter and see a tribal circus; visit Angus’ land and buy a kilt; take a carriage ride; see a birds of prey show; the possibilities are endless! 😀

If you saw the Birds of Prey show this weekend or you catch it any time this year during fair, PLEASE!–visit theRoyalGauntlet.com and leave some feedback telling the creators what you thought of the show.

….there is more to come….see what else we find this year at the Castle of Muskogee!

 

 

Oklahoma Renaissance Faire: Muskogee Oklahoma

Ren-Faire Season!

It has begun! Or at least it begins this weekend! OKRF is the short version of Oklahoma Renaissance Faire. It is held EVERY May at the Castle of Muskogee located (where else?) in Muskogee, Oklahoma USA.

I love faire season. Muskogee is the closest faire to me so it is the main one I attend. It has a lot to offer whether you are a photographer, people watcher, or just like to get out and have fun! 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

If you like to dress up, there are plenty of places to get new costumes or to add to an existing one. I love multi-use pieces and costumes! Halloween is a great time to dig out bits and pieces or the whole costume and be an original! Most people don’t even associate the costume with Renaissance Faires. They just think it’s cool! My favorite is of course Damsel In This Dress! Michelle makes the most awesome outfits.

Check out her shop at OKRF
Check out the coolest corsets at OKRF!

They go great with everything! 😀

People watching and joining in the fun is an awesome time at Oklahoma Ren-Faire too! There are games, shopping, and plenty of entertainment! Check out the castle website for more details…and they are on facebook too where acts and  venders have been featured as a preview!

My favorite acts at OKRF are:

1. Royal Gauntlet birds of prey….this is where I spend most of my time! I can’t get enough! So stop by…you’ll find the show in the jousting arena. Check the programs for times or find a falconer….

2. The Jolly Rogers…..my pirate fix! I love pirates. The Jolly Rogers are a singing pirate group. They sing folk songs and sea chanties. I promise you will laugh!

Come to faire! Then share your experience with comments made HERE!

Morracan Room

Morracan Room

The most romantic, exotic room in T-town!

Tulsa is a wonderful place. I have lived here throughout most of my life and amazingly enough, I am still finding out things I didn’t know about Tulsa, OK — the place I grew up…..

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow….

If you are looking for a quaint, cozy, warm, romantic evening to share with your sweetheart….here is just the ticket for you!

I recently visited the “Inn at Woodward Park”. It’s right off of 21st street across from Woodward park located between Peoria and Utica.

This little bed and breakfast is marvelous! It has four rooms available for guest use.

Check it out:

Morracan Room

The most romantic, exotic room in T-town!

The Moroccan room is bold and exotic decorated with vivid blues, passionate reds and fabulous golds. It’s right out of a dream….think Arabian Nights, Sinbad….or any pirate you like (such as Jack Sparrow even)….

The innkeeper is a wonderful lady. Her name is Janet. She is very sweet, polite, accommodating and informative. The Inn has a beautiful sunroom  upstairs where you can enjoy coffee, or other refreshments as well as a formal dinning room for breakfast. You may also wish to opt for breakfast in bed….adds to the romanceIi mentioned earlier. After all,  we are talking “Valentine’s Day”.

Speaking of Romance…there is even a romance package that gives you wine (chilled) and cheeses and fruits all ready and waiting for your arrival if you order this when you reserve your stay at the Inn.

I had a glorious time relaxing in a jacussi tub and a four poster bed complete with curtains and a wonderful imagination….Use your imagination this Valentine’s Day and let The Inn at Woodward Park help you celebrate with your special Valentine!

One more wonderful thing about this inn…..it is soooooooo close to many dinning options….

Olive Garden at Utica Square, Polo Grill at Utica Square, P F Changs also at Utica Square….are not even one mile down the road! Isn’t that spectacular?? Cherry Street with its shops and dinning options is just around the corner too! Cherry Street is the area on Fifteenth Street between Utica and Peoria in Tulsa.

Plenty of Romance in the area….and a stroll through the park is great too….though the weather for this area has gone into winter for the week….Mother Nature decided to make winter snuggle weather for Valentine’s Day….imagine!!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!! Whatever you decide to do, I hope you enjoy it with someone special!
