Wild West Victorian Fest in Kerrville, TX

December 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

About two months ago I got word of a Wild West Victorian Fest (WWVF) to be held mid December in Kerrville, TX. If you have read my other blog posts, you know I love to photograph characters so I was going to check it out. WWVF ran from Dec 15th to the 17th. I planned on going on Saturday December 16th so I would have Sunday to post process the images. I did not make it on Saturday due to bad weather, but I did make it out on Sunday. There was a light showing of people likely due to the poor weather conditions from Saturday and Sunday morning. Nevertheless I was going to make the best out my trip. Here are my favorite photos I took on Sunday at the WWVF.

The first thing that caught my eye was this partial mannequin wearing steampunk items. I thought it had an interesting look.

I made my way around and saw my friend Ash performing a hilarious story with audience participation. Definitely a must watch performance. After that was a Buffalo Bill performance involving whips, guns and humor. As I was walking around I heard a tuba in the distance. I went to check it out and it was a lady from The Toobadours. I didn't have time to see their performance but I could always see a crowd at their stage and hear laughter so I bet it was good. I spent a good amount of time with my friend Marty, a funny multi-talented performer. He juggles pins, knives, fire sticks and just about anything else while sometimes balancing on a pipe. Oh, and he can breath some serious FIRE. I had a great time seeing my friends and making new ones. Hopefully the weather cooperates next year. I am planning on visiting the Kerrville Renaissance Festival next month. I hope you enjoyed the photographs and maybe I will see you at the next event.
