So, we have had the first weekend of the Carolina Renaissance Festival, now in its 18th year. What a beautiful weekend! The weather was perfect, not too hot, not too cold. Last year, I was taking my hat and bodice off backstage and sticking them in the freezer during breaks. This year, it was somewhere in the 70s, sunny and breezy. And we had 11,000+ people join us on Saturday. As far as I can tell, the shows all went well, the joust was great and everyone seemed pretty happy. Here am I as Countess Batista Nadasdi and my husband as my manservant, Lickspittle.
- Iza Batista (aka Heather O. Adams)
- I am a 30-something working mother, artist and performer. I have been a professional puppeteer, a massage therapist, real estate asst, a high school French teacher...I'm always a dreamer, a maker, a do-er, a finisher of projects. I love Terry Pratchett, Jim Henson, the Muppets, David Bowie, Cary Grant, Carl Haiasan, 80s horror films, the 1st and 4th Pirates of the Carribean films, anything Hallowe'en-y, cats and Mello Yello.
