Just about everything I wear on the playa and at Regionals is stuff I found at thrift stores or odds and ends around the house...except perhaps for my hats, some of which I purchased, others gifted.

So, what are all the imperfect bodies rocking on the Playa in a little more than a week? I know I can stand to lose 10-15 pounds but I said fuck it. I'm wearing leggings and having fun. I love the way they feel & found some that are awesome. I even have a bodysuit. :oops:

I'll never be on the cover of GQ but I'm not there to impress anyone or get laid(although I wouldn't mind to). I'm there to participate & enjoy 1 week of freedom form the default world, job pressure, and escape someone else's expectations for appropriate. I'm there to camp with old friends and make new ones. I will wear tight clothes, I will be shinny & illuminated and I apologize in advance because I will probably reveal more of me than some care to see :-)

Woot woot!

Imperfection is the new perfection (did I go to far there?)

-Dave (OP), what did you come up with???

Oh no, maybe I'll fail to impress someone I don't know and don't care about. Someone I won't see ever again after the week in the desert, or for that matter, after riding past them to have fun somewhere else.

I've found the Thai Fisherman pants and baggy things like that but would like to find more fun or unique types of clothes.


So Dave, How was your Burn? Do we get a post-Playa report? What did you end up doing?

And, more importantly, WHAT WERE YOU WEARING???

(FWIW, I wear Braids, Boy shorts and Boots for everything *maybe a coat in the wee hours*)
