Who Made This Dress??

Postby 9ah » Sat Feb 01, 2014 4:46 pm

So last burn as me and the new Mrs. were wandering the playa we happened upon a couple within Hushville (as far as I could recall) that had some awesome embroidered attire. I scored this dress and they let me bring another back for a campmate. His pink dress also fit like a glove.

I'd love to thank them again and share photos, but as things go on the playa thank yous were exchanged, but not default contacts! Anyone know em?

I was thinking that it would be a rare and nice thing if a dress could fit the moment as well as a small perfect cup of coffee icon sometimes does.

At a guess... Phil and Louise. They do a fashion show/give away out of Hushville.

Yes.... AntiM... That sounds about right. I wish I had paid more attention! Do they independent camp or are they on the map. It's in my bin to make it back for 2014, but they deserve a photo of my campmate in his lovely pink dress!

Is this thread real or sarcasm?

I guess that depends if you remember the '50s. :mrgreen:

So much of burner culture is the simultaneous local at the intersection of real and sarcasm...

They are always in Hushville, and usually anchor a corner camp. Civilized Explorer. Not on the map as far as I know, but Hushville is. Frequently camped next to Dusty Dave's photography.

That's a fucking awesome dress!
I'm guessing they went to the Deseret Industries thrift shop and bought a bunch of Mormon grandma dresses and screenprinted them. Genius.
