Oldest American Ren Faire hires first female jouster Virginia Hankins. Because she’s awesome.
What a majestic human being this is.
I HAVE THE BIGGEST CRUSH NOW JUST UGH PLS DATE ME
This is SO cool to me. I’m picturing all the young girls watching her joust and being inspired.
When I was a kid there was a small show at out local ren faire called Crossed Swords with a woman and a man who did a whole act of sword fighting together. His character was very arrogant and rude saying women couldn’t sword fight and she of course would set him straight in an awesome fashion. My friends and I went up and got her signature and talked to her afterwards.
ANYWAYS, just saying that when young ladies have women like this to look up to, it’s incredibly awesome.
