I feel like any of the people taking part in Historical Reenactments, whether it be the civil war or the Renaissance have to be pretty dorky. Right? Is it fair to say there’s not one person that participates in a Renaissance fair that isn’t a total dork? However, this Historical Preenactment Society T Shirt brings up an interesting distinction.
I feel like the people that would gather for a festival of this sort and act in it, would have a slightly different makeup: sharper sense of humor, and a creativity to portray their idea of the future.
So, Reenactment no. Preenactment yes!
Funny design from Dresden Codak and made available on Topatoco, because “the best history has yet to happen.”
