There is something about dressing up in Victorian era clothing that seems to bring out the chivalrous side of the guys. Give him a hat, vest, some gloves, cloak, or cane (and in some cases all of it together), and the gentleman who is in there year-round comes to the surface.
I really do love the Dickens Fair. I have several blogs about it bubbling around in my brain. But, tonight I am tired, and I'm getting up early tomorrow to do it all again. It is definitely time for sleep.
