So on my road-trip to the Blue Mountains area my mum and I went through Lithgow and went to Ironfest: a steampunk/medieval/war festival for a bunch of adults to act like children... It's great fun and I highly recommend it. It's an annual event and it receives high praise in the media.
Here are some highlights:
At Ironfest you need to be prepared to see anything. People come from all over to cosplay or dress up and have fun.
|The dark overlord with his horse...|
And lots of people look really fabulous in their costumes, whether it be steampunk...
Or cosplaying a famous character...
Here's some more random photos,
such as the horseback jousting and other fights...
|Replica medieval arrowheads, being showed-off by a medieval enthusiast|
|The RANDOM ARAB in the background!!!!!!!|
|A belly dancer in the parade|
|Okay, I included this because he looks so suspicious of everyone and everything and I don't know why!|
|It's the mayor! She came in full costume and looked fantastic|
|And last of all a pretty owl!!|
So please join us there next year!
Thanks for reading,
