We hired the Medieval Reenactor to set up and oversee Renaissance Games at our large renaissance themed event for over 800 people. Other than our preplanning conversations, I didn't have much time at the event to check in and over see her as we had a lot of other activities occurring at the same time. Regardless, she was very self-sufficient and did awesome! She was outgoing to attendees, dressed within the theme, explained and helped with games that she provided herself! A lot of folks said it was an awesome part of the event. She was very happy and outgoing, we couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Annika was fabulous! She was a huge hit with our crowd and everyone said her comments were spot on.
Response from Medieval Reenactor:
I was booked for a Renaissance-themed fundraiser and provided fortune telling and divination using traditional Russian Gypsy tarot cards, practices that date back hundreds of years! I did readings in full costume for several hours with a display set up and received an incredibly warm and welcome reception by the event attendees.
Kitty was terrific to work with and I had an amazing time.
Annika was amazing. Very professional, well prepared and presented. I could not have accomplished such a loving proposal without her. I can't say enough, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Best ever!!! Thank you

What to Expect
I am an extremely professional, courteous, and punctual performer. I communicate regularly with my clients, both when things are going as planned - AND if things come up that become a challenge for you or me in producing an excellent event. I am an active problem solver, I try to think and plan proactively, and am dedicated to making sure that your guests have an incredible time - and walk away having learned something!
As a professional costume designer and seamstress, I am able to produce a costume and accessories for any time period! Although I specialize in the Medieval and Renaissance times, I can also do Revolutionary War, Civil War, Wild West, 1920s, and more... just ask!
I own and operate The Harpy & The Hag and have a full medieval campsite kit that I can display, if you'd like to really step up your event and provide a fuller, deeper experience for your guests. As an educator and amateur (but devoted!) historian, I can also put on demonstrations in a variety of areas, including: cooking, sewing and textile arts, day-to-day living.
