Re: Coat material

it's so hard to anticipate, you know? I look at pics from the past few years, and some nights I was wearing a short skirt, military vest & a hoodie around my waist -- too warm to put it on! but then, other nights I was freezing even in a heavy coat . I tell all my first-year friends to bring sev...

Okay... I follow ya here. So the topic is "animal coverings" and the modifier is "playa rulez". So then the whole feather motif is definitely out, so I'm thinking... ummm... maybe ... leather? :):

Re: Feathers?

I think the "tribal" interpretation of this year's theme is going to make the feather issue worse than ever. I've been struck by how many burners are pinning the shit out of feathered headdresses on pinterest. it makes me double frown, because paired with the appropriation element it's lik...

(for a friend, I have my ticket)

(of course, friend registered August 1st under the correct name, but does not have a credit card. friend is in queue like all y'all)

Re: Costume & Crafting Help

I went with the same thought last year and it failed me miserably. I am apparently evolved from people who never set foot in anything colder than 80 degrees Fahrenheit during their entire lifespan. Was literally freezing every time I went anywhere in the open playa without 3 layers + 1 heavy coat. ...

Re: Start with what you have. It's easier and cheaper.

Maybe one day I will figure out a good way to host one on the playa... my biggest concern with that would be the potential for MOOP since there's so many little bits and pieces involved. I guess if I did it in the dome, maybe sitting on the floor with a carpet we might be ok.... hmmmm,..... let me ...

LOL. last year was my husband's first year (not mine), and I had to costume-coax him sooo much.
this year, he's in the middle of furiously sewing El wire into a faux fur/leather/shin-length woman's coat we found at goodwill for $25. and demanding I buy him more hot pink bandanas.
