Alestorm and "the tiny village near Darmstad" + Autumn Market Ronneburg

On Saturday my lovely boss, her husband, my hun and me went to see Alestorm and support at the Steinbruch Theater. Only the day before we learned that it might be the last concert at the Steinbruch... wich meant that the Finntroll concert there on Wednesday will be cancelled :(
I have to admit it was the first time for me to visit the Steinbruch even though I got invited from friends so many times~

The tiny club was sold out that evening and crowded to the roof!
Due to work we sadly missed Troldhaugen and Crimson Shadows but Brainstorm and Alestorm were awesome! During Alestorm the venue got so packed and warm that we had to go outside to breathe~ x__x

The next day the four of us visited the annual medieval autumn market "In honor of the holy grail" at Ronneburg. It takes place every year around the end of September and the beginning of October.
I really love the autumn market! It is always blessed with lot's of traders and visitors, great food, lovely wares, battles and music.

The 1 on 1 battles were as spectacular as always and the cutest thing for sure was a tiny vikng (about 2-3 years old) with a wooden axe laughing the whole time! The tiny warrior was allowed to strike a few hits against 2 of the warriors. So cute!

Surely we bought a few treasures!
New leather pouch, handbraided linen-braid for my hun's new tunic, bronze beads and a kläppar häst.

Hayner Burgfest "Wildbann"

I finally went to the Hayner Burgfest again this year and it was lovely as always. We had such a nice weather! The sun was shining but it was not too hot. 

The main theme of this years event was hunting. Horus Falkenrei presented us their lovely birds of prey and Irish Wolfhounds adn also the art of hunting with the birds from horseback :) Lovely! The falconry was accompanied by an animal phorographer and a few of his trained animals. For a small donation people could get pictures with the animals. I'm  bid sad I didn't have enough money to take pictures with more of them but I was so in love with that baby skunk! I was allowed to play with it and cuddle it for while and it was such a cutie! My friend Christina took pictures with two of the birds :)

We also met some friends and I shared bit's of my flamed salmon with Abby, a friends pretty husky :D
It was such a lovely day! I need to take more pictures of such days~ yes I do!

I also bought a bit of treasury ;)

Don't open~ dead inside!

On Saturday August 30th 2014 the dead walked the earth... again!
It was the 8th Zombiewalk in Frankfurt that we organized and although I didn't have much time to do much this year. I'm really glad that my co-organiziers put so much effort in it (and still do!). 

We had a little Zombie special at the store the whole week and were sold out on Fakeblood on Saturday ^^; I got my Saturday temp all zombiefied~

The walk itself was great as always. I never can keep count on how many Zombies actually have been there but I guess the horde was as big as the last years. The police was as kind as ever and drove with us on motorbikes to temporary close roads and so on. We never had any problems with them and the policemen always acted cool and with lots of humour! But that also goes to our well behaved Zombies I guess ;) Yes~ there always are a few people that dance out of line but all in all our Zombies behave.

Thank you guys and see you next year!
