    Mmmmmm dead rabbits around necks, rogue cleavage, & centaur men who work off tips….. This is my kind of Renaissance…… Where do I sign up???????

  2. J says:

    That is soooo awesome..and not awesome at the same time 🙂

  3. Heidi says:

    Zoiks! Don’t often see a horse with cankles.

  4. Pipergirl says:

    This sure ain’t Narnia, Lucy.

  5. Calicodeb says:

    Get a load of the damsel’s busty tattoo spillage over the top of her dress.

  6. Randori says:

    And this boys and girls is why you should never take animal steroids.

  7. Pipergirl says:

    Saddle up.

  8. Pipergirl says:

    It was all swell, until the steeplechase event.

  9. Caivan says:

    ohhhh Wiiiiiiiillllburrrrrr!!!

  10. praetorius says:

    Which is more awkward: that her bodice is woefully inadequate for her erratically overflowing abundance or the dollar bills in his um garter belt?

    The look on the girl’s face seems to be saying, “what is that poking me in the back?”

  11. Colette says:

    This is at Sherwood Forest Faire in Paige, Texas. A awesome new fair!
    I know this “man”, this is not his family (though he has a lovely wife and daughter)!!
    He is an actor as a Renaissance Festival and the money is him letting people know his pay is from tips as well.

  12. Jeff Metal says:

    I had a friend who was half man half bull. He went around the country performing.

    He didn’t go to many venues. It was a minotaur (sorry don’t know any jokes about centaurs!)

  13. Alan says:

    I’d offer him some throat lozenges. After all he’s a little hoarse.

  14. ScoutC says:

    “Why can’t my mom and dad just do Zumba and golf like other parents? Get me out of here!”

  15. Kimm says:

    Does this guy know anything about the true myth of centaurs? If he does, then I find this offensive. If he doesn’t, then I find it to be amusing.

  16. michelle says:

    he gets his money from underground Centaur racing.

  18. Ed says:

    I don’t think that’s a real horse’s a$$…I think they photo shopped it in!

  19. Rabid Child says:

    Dunno if that’s “all man”, as the horse end seems to be missing some of its “manly” characteristics.

  20. LT says:

    Looks like the woman’s cup runnith over!

  21. Annette says:

    Centaur man has cankles.

  22. Princess Leia says:

    The only that could possibly make this better would be if she had some dollar bills stuffed in her bosom.

  23. Julie says:

    I gotta know – is he able to walk around or is this a “stationary” costume? I was thinking of the poor guy on the back end…

  24. joe says:

    Lol … looks like he’s a gelding.

  25. Dibba says:

    How does he move? Does he have wheels on his hind legs or do his family have to carry his rear end?

    • Cindy says:

      I was wondering the same thing, about the back legs. Also, I’m not so sure they’re his family, if he goes to the Ren Faire and gets his picture taken with Faire-goers…

  26. Big JT says:

    Bad week for the family, you see grandad broke his leg last week and we had to put him down.

  27. LRC says:

    I want to see him walk.

  28. Leonard says:

    Wow, that wench certainly has an ample bosom!

  29. Maidstone says:

    OH MY GOD – I had a photo taken with this Centaur. Two years in a row. HA!
    Texas Ren Faire. Love this guy!!!

  30. Andrew says:

    it’s based on context at Ren faire so it’s not really awkward; but online to non Rennies it is awkward and yes it a dead rabbit, skinned in one piece, tanned and then used as a bag, very common in years of olde bot not so much anymore although with no legs it’s probably tanned flat and sewn up to make the purse. Very cool and not awkward to me a Ren Faire dork and lover of costumes in general.

  31. Jon says:

    I’d hate to be the guy in the rear-half of that costume!

  32. Algonquin says:

    Do my eyes deceive me or did he make that costume anatomically correct? There is a light colored bulge just in front of the back legs. If it was his intent to make it anatomically correct, he sure sold himself short!

  33. Sean says:

    I’m in a horse!

  34. tinala says:

    OMG! Is that a dead rabbit hanging on the girl’s dress?

  35. tinala says:

    What is that duct-taped on his arm?

  36. Jennifer says:

    Wow!! This is….interesting..? The girl looks *thrilled* with the whole thing lol
    Is he taking tips???
    At least they are doing stuff as a family, even if it is a little, um strange =)

  37. fuzznewtons says:

    Can anyone explain the dollar bills stuffed into his arm band? Do I really want to know?

    • MC says:

      I can’t exactly say but I do know most of the preformers at the ren fest travel around the country and live only by their tips they make. I don’t think he is a stripper if that is what you are implying, but I wonder how big a centaur’s…nevermind.

  38. Angie says:

    The little girl seems so exasperated by all of this.

  39. Katrina says:

    The family the “neighs” together…

    • Penny P. says:

      There goes the “neigh”-borhood…
      According the Centaur chairing the meeting, the “neighs” have it.

  40. Jensco says:

    The little girl’s face says it all…..

    • Pipergirl says:

      Just remember, in about five years, she’ll be dating. Some poor teenage boy is going to come round to pick her up and this is what opens the door!

  41. Jake says:

    Is he stripper? Then why the dollar bills in a garter belt on his arm?

  42. Josie says:

    What the WHAT?!

  43. Mel says:

    Can I also say that this is 1,000 times better than I imagined it?

  44. Kathy says:

    Looks like you have to pony up some cash to get a shot with this stallion.

  45. Theresa says:

    Hahaha! This is at the Texas Renaissance Festival where I got married last year. 😀 His costume is by far the most highly praised work of art there! And yes, he’s there every single year! Go visit your local Texas centaur man next season! 😀

    • deb says:

      yep, I recognized him right away! He’s not the only one in great costume either. If you’re in Texas, go visit! On another note, that little girl looks like she is being tortured and would rather be anywhere else in the world!

    • Ashley says:

      I was thinking this looked like the Texas Ren Fest!

    • kathryn says:

      i’m sorry, did you say you were married at the Texan Renaissance Fair? When does your photo get posted to this site?

    • Danielle says:

      This is not at TRF, this picture was taken at Sherwood Forest Faire. It’s a smaller/newer faire just outside of Austin.

  46. Mel says:

    OMG, is this Diane from Elliott in the Morning? THank you, thank you to whoever posted this! I heard them talking about it, but forgot to look it up.

    Can’t. Stop. Laughing.

  47. Barry says:

    You gotta love ren faires!

  48. Curious Rabbit says:

    WTH is that hanging around the girl’s neck? Looks like a dead rabbit.

  49. MidwesternMom says:

    Oh my. I just saw the dollar bills on his arm band. Wow…
