Renaissance Festival photos: Did everyone show this much skin in the 16th century?

The weekend provided plenty of lens-fillers for Westword photogs. Aaron Thackeray captured the 50 best costumes at the Renaissance Festival -- including the one seen here -- while Eric Gruneisen captured the top T-shirts at Heaven Fest. And multiple shutterbugs contributed to our July photo roundup. See these eye-popping images and more at Westword's slideshow page.
