It may have been a case of nerds on the beach, but we were fabulous nerds on a beach and all dressed as the Brass Coast from the Empire setting my orc comes from.
Golden Magician - Ok so his character's name is Kurim and he isn't the golden magician in the game world that is an entirely different entity, but he is very golden and I quite enjoyed taking pictures of his swooshy sleeves.
Pedro's Seashell Jewelry - People probably thought I was a bit strange when I sat there peering at their costume nibbling on the carrot sticks and houmous, only to occasionally snap a photo of their kit. The costume was really detailed, I don't think enough people appreciate the Freeborn look, it's pretty right down to their beaded shoes.
Fiery Fans - Dancing is part of Freeborn culture, it was a beach picnic with some people who play Freeborn, at some point someone was going to start dancing, thankfully it was Constanza who is actually really good at dancing and had these lovely fire coloured fans.
Avisena Walking on Water - One of the hardest sets of photos I took from the day where I had around 3-5 pictures of the same moment and had to choose which was the best, in some she was just stepping out and stretching her toes, in others she was swishing the water. This one was different, it looks like she is about to step onto the water's surface.
Jellyfish - At a glance it does look like he might have been sick. Pedro has not been sick, he was peering at this poor beached jellyfish on the sand. In this photo the colours just seemed to turn out really nice, the sand looks like you can reach into the photo and touch it.
Freeborn Beach Walk - It is not the best picture in the set, just a quick snap while I was walking alongside everyone on the way back for nibbles in our little camp but watching everyone's robes and sashes in the sea breeze was lovely, I had to take a picture and got this one for my efforts.
