Art costume needs...

Post by BlackRockCowboy » Tue Apr 14, 2009 12:56 pm

1. Does anyone know where I can can get bulk or wholesale condoms?
2. Does anyone have a massive amount of the little plastic cowboys and indians?
3. Any ideas on how to make a regular sized gift bag hold up in the elements of the Playa?
4. Anyone have a fabric target about the size of my ass?
5. Anyone have chaps they would part with?
6. Any old wigs?

Any ideas on how to obtain these items would be appreciated as well.

I would be glad to pay upfront or "gift you" on the Playa.

Oh by the way....I have a two car garage full of "shizille," Tell me what you need for art projects, etc and if I have it it's yours.

Condoms are EASY! Go to any university health center and they are there for the taking, try any of the youth counceling places like Planned parenthood as well.

Or Ebay it.

Well, this is the ePlaya board, I assume that answers your question if in fact you were serious.

And I have no idea what the Folsom Street Fair is.

This is my chance to step out of my conservative box 39 years in the making. There is no way I can set up an art project this year so I have some ideas for "Art Costumes." How ever they are interpreted is up to the audience.

FSF is an event in San Francisco, about a week after Burning Man, no connection. One would see lots of chaps, a fair amount of Cowboys and Indians, Sailors, Cops, Construction Workers, Bikers (you get the picture)and condom use is encouraged.

Anywhooo...
I keyed in: Where can I buy bulk condoms? into the google search bar and got a page of hits.

We have Michaels out here in CA, and you have them in KS as well. It is a craft store, filled with straw flowers, plastic plants, and lots of those little bags of army men and cowboys and indians. Pretty dang cheap.

Oriental Trading online. Catch their free shipping specials. Avoid the temptation of cheap plastic trinkets.

I still have a bunch of army men that every third person seemed to be passing out from 10-12? years ago.

Sorry to jack your thread, but what in the hell was that about ?

Dick, you were supposed to throw them in the fire. It was returning to the days of your youth when you melted them with magnifying glasses or buried them in the yard. Why do you even bother to come if you're not going to read the memo?

New request

Post by BlackRockCowboy » Wed Apr 22, 2009 6:37 am

I am now also in search of as many Garfield stuffed animals as possible. I am hitting the thrift stores, but thought I would put it out here in case someone has a collection in their basement they want to sell.

The seller would have to be okay with them being destroyed.....lol

Thanks to all the comments, I am tweeking my thoughts and hope to entertain you when I am there.....LOL.

Of course, some will "get me" and others will be "WTF????"

Later

I have purchased from www.CondomMan.com and been oh so happy with my purchase. The first order I placed I price checked everyone and they were the best deal for what I wanted.

When were you looking to get the army men? I could bring some possibly or ship them if you were desperate.

Update

Post by BlackRockCowboy » Tue Apr 28, 2009 7:24 am

1. Does anyone know where I can can get bulk or wholesale condoms? (Taken care of, thanks for the advice, I just hope they stick to duct tape on the playa.)
2. Does anyone have a massive amount of the little plastic cowboys and indians? (Still Looking)
3. Any ideas on how to make a regular sized gift bag hold up in the elements of the Playa? (I think I am going to line the inside with duct tape)
4. Anyone have a fabric target about the size of my ass? (Still looking)
5. Anyone have chaps they would part with? (Still looking)
6. Any old wigs? (Taken Care of)
7. Stuffed Garfields (Still desperately looking for inexpensive ones)

My main need right now is used plastic grocery sacks. I am wanting to make all kinds of things with them. I think I might wind up with enough around here. I do not want to buy a bulk bunch of them, I think that defeats the purpose of recycling which is my theme with the bags anyway.

Thanks again,

Cowboy

BlackRockCowboy, I don't know if there is a Freecycle in Witchita or not, but it might be a good option for you. The site for the one in my area is kind of unwieldy, but if you get on your local one and request used plastic grocery bags my guess is you'll get more than you can use. Dog knows most people have more than they know what to do with.

Try getting some unstuffed ones and feeding them lazagna. It's my understanding that under those circumstances, they pretty much stuff themselves.
