Wild And Unlikely Theme Guesses

Caravansary - This year we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services. Anyone may pose as 'merchant' here, and anyone may play a 'customer', but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this 'marketplace' will be one's interaction with a fellow human being.

Crete.

The biggest island in the Mediterranean - allows for all that nautical stuff.
Formerly the home of the labyrinth, the Minotaurs, and bull leaping.
Lots of fun ethnic costume ideas - mostly bare breasted.

The theme is going to be Chinese Generator ... the man base will look like a Harbor Freight generator under which hundreds of of actual Chinese generators will be running and connected to microphones, amplified and broadcast throughout the city!

They will paint the man in toxic lead paint and burn him during the day so the "exhaust" effect can be witnessed in all of its glory.
