What happens at a LARP event?

Most LARP events, or Live-Action Role-Playing, will feature people dressed up as their character, often their own creation. Many LARP events are battles where people will fight with foam weapons. While the rules differ from group to group, the basic foundation to any LARP battle is having fun while keeping safe in the process.

What is SCA?

SCA stands for Society for Creative Anachronism. This is a group, based mostly in the USA, that focuses on historical reenactments. Many SCA groups will have specific standards about historical accuracy when it comes to the clothing, food, weapons, armour, and gear used in their events.

What can I do at a Ren Faire in New Mexico?

When it comes to a Renaissance faire, there are so many things to do. Most Ren faires and festivals will have booths for food and shopping. These foods will often be themed around medieval feasts. There is usually live performances and music at a Ren faire. Part of the fun includes dressing up in costume. You can look medieval or have a fantasy outfit.
