Tu Tu to you Too

Postby unjonharley » Thu Jan 05, 2012 12:47 pm

\
The story go's some thing like this.. In the 1880's
An English man, by the name of M F Petrie was the first person to be allowed to survey the Great Pyramids.. Others had been run off or killed..

Petrie was a bit of a nut.. Or crazy like a fox. He did the survey in a Tu Tu..
He was allowed the survey cuse he was looked at as a nut job..

Will there be a TuTu Tues. at Burning Man 2012 :?: :arrow:

As far as I've seen: many people are observing Tutu Tuesday at Burning Man every year these days, regardless of whether it is formally announced. :)

And tutus end up being like Christmas decorations . . . flaunted both in advance and lingering on.

Surprisingly (at least to me...) I have never worn a tutu...I have worn a sequined shoulder padded evening gown and feathered turban...but that's another thread...
I am so down with this idea of tutu Tuesday.....it's like embracing the inner fairy....in a totally tulled sorta way of course

Last year was the very first time i've ever worn a tutu. I wasn't a little princess kind of girl. Anyway, i'd always wanted to be a princess I guess cause I put that tutu on and started crying lol
Anyhoo, even if there isn't a tutu tuesday I will be wearing one. More than likely every day at some point my attire will include a tutu. And a tiara.

That is so sweet, tamarakay.

I would probably do the same if I ever finally tried a pair of pointe shoes. Which is silly, because I could buy myself a pair right now--why not? But when you always want something, and then it just doesn't seem practical anymore, it probably catches you unawares when you finally get it . . .

(The Black Rock City Ballet was giving away pointe shoes one year [which is amazing and sweet, because I can't be the only child-@-heart still kinda interested in them] but I didn't read the What/When/Where guide early enough in the week.)

Giving this a nudge over to the Art & Performance board, since I think that's a better fit than tickets.

The wearing white thing comes from a couple individual events, shykat… On Wednesday night, Opulent Temple (one of the big sound camps) has their annual 'sacred dance' event. While anyone and everyone's welcome, they ask that people dress in white. They've also got performers clad in white doing special dances/performances as well, it's kind of a big thing for them (think of it as a big throw-down for family and the full-week crowd). Then on Thursday morning (or at least, it used to be on Thursday mornings), there's a somber affair called The White Procession. They dress in white (some in elaborate costumes and makeup) and meet at center camp in the pre-dawn hours on Thursday, then slowly and silently begin marching first to the man and then onwards to the temple, timing it so they arrive at the temple just as the sun comes over the mountain.

But, wouldn't it be boring if everyone did the same thing? I mean, Burning Man is about radial self-expression...

And everyone at burningman radically self-expresses by wearing a tutu on Tuesday. It's mandated.

Ah yes. The tutumobile!

I know THIS picture was taken on tuesday afternoon, as my tutu had made it to my head by that time as a mobile shade option.

Ah, I can see the coffee table book now: The Decorated Shirt Cocker.

Does anyone else remember that book of cut out japanese costumes for the penis? Why didn't I buy a copy? I have so many other useless books...

haha yes don't weld naked, thats even worse than cooking bacon naked. I got some nasty slag on my arm last year, I think of it as a brand from the trojan horse, but I got it back in the end (with an arrow!)
