Re: Costume & Crafting Help

Emily, You inspired me to the paint box. It's almost last call for spray painting and covering up logos. What I lack in talent I make up in enthusiasm.

Re: Playa Boutique locations and accepting donations?

I know from experience that they can't be too 'size specific''. Men's pants that don't stretch won't be as desirable as something that is big that you can wear with a belt (or not). It has to be easy to figure out and can't have a bunch of unattached parts. Every style and color, black or white. Jus...

Re: Vintage Canvas Tents on playa

Wow. And I thought I had troubles. I confess. I bought a tent at a yard sale today. For just $5 I got some Walmart thing that is 3 tents connected together by tunnels. (The 2 small ones remind me of dog igloos.) You can zip them together or not. It has a plastic tarp floor on all 3 but the main tent...

Re: Will call fireball.

In Mexico the party store had the most outrageous candy I've ever seen. It was for stuffing into your pinata. Little candy balls that come in over-sized, see-through plastic hypodermic needles. The needle was a flexible plastic and the whole thing made me stare in wonderment. My jaw dropped. I can o...

I always hang there a moment so they can put their wrapper in my little velvet moop bag. I may wear my uniform one day as a greeter. (It gets pretty grungie after a few outings.)

Re: NEED BRAIDS IN RENO!

There will be burners at the Sands for the week before. In fact the town is full of burners and I'd be surprised if you couldn't get the braids at any number of salons. You can braid in anything you like so don't stick with the standard store-bought fake hair. Look around. It's like a bird building ...

Re: NEED BRAIDS IN RENO!

Peepers, Don't be so darn picky. Go to the Sands and ask fellow burners. Someone will braid your hair and give you a beer. Loosen up. No professional braiding is gonna make your burn any easier. Or, look on line or in the phone book and visit a salon. Sheesh. Braids.

I couldn't function with a nasal spay out there. I swear my nose was full of concrete. The only way to blow it was with nasal spay. It was the best gift/advise I got as a virgin. (Except of course the stuff my sisters told me when I was REALLY a virgin).

I'm gonna give that thermos another try and if it isn't easy I'll bring a low profile back packer and move on to more important things like what kind of tequila, pop tarts or power bars.

This is the tent I got today. It appears to be made of felt. Where is the tent of my dreams? This ain't it. I gave up trying to coax the poles into the end grommets.

Re: NO FEATHERS ON THE PLAYA

The reason I bring this up is...I have chickens and an emu. I'm not interested in putting feathers on my body. (I've seen to many mites to shake the icky feeling). Just for the record, I'm opposed to all moop. Up in my bird yard I found a bead from something I wore ages ago. The feathers on the othe...

So here comes my 'Oh so silly' question. What about beads, sequins, glitter and unfinished edges on that home-made costume?

I know there are special dyes for synthetics but I haven't dyed anything in ages. Last thing I did was a wedding dress in blackish green and it was meant to be grotesque so I don't know what the results would be if you were shooting for pretty.

I always thought the fire ball had a purpose. USPS has rules about which service you can use and how thick the pkg has to be. I remember the clerk making a little trash ball out of junk mail to stick in my envelope so it would be thick enough to use some postal extra service (like insurance). Just a...

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

This stretchy denim dress is oh so sexy. I made slits up the front and back, fringed them just enough to be interesting and stop any moop. Then I added big buttons. It fits like a glove cause it's stretchy. Now, where's that big gold hat and silk scaves for my wrists.

She would love it. I gave her a tutu for her, (not a kid). She is a full bodied woman and loved that I had something in pink to fit her. If you get a chance, wander around in kids camp. It's pretty amazing. They jump on the trampolines all night. I went to their campfire a couple of nights to see 5 ...
