BM 2012 a Harem of Virgins

Postby tattoogoddess » Wed Sep 14, 2011 11:03 pm

Yeah Ok im a Perv.

So This will be my first year,My friend jakes,Matts and Possibly Anthony's. We are all doing it together. Im the odd chick out.

All but one of us is from Iowa. We are going to drive out.

I have to ask. I have been watching alot of videos.. what is the consensus of bigger women running around in not much of anything? I know it hotter then all get out during the day and well im bigger and REALLY dont want to die of heat.
Help?

People of all shapes, sizes and ages go naked or half naked (though usually with broken-in boots or shoes, so make sure you like yours, and they make you feel good). Underpants + footwear are a popular choice. Or tutus, sarongs and . . . whatever. Bring a little backpack if you won't have pockets. Bring a lot of socks though--more than you think you'll need--and fun cold-weather stuff for nighttime. Layers. Etc.

(If you want to visit places naked, bring a towel to sit on, or your own chair.)

It's totally fine.

Hey, welcome to Eplaya! *grin*

As people before me said, it's totally cool to go as naked as you like, just bring something to sit on when you go visit other places.

I will suggest, however, that I find sometimes I'm hotter naked or nearly so than clothed. A few sarongs in strategic places protect my skin from the sun and I feel cooler because of it. Your mileage may vary. =)

Ha Ha I doubt I will go Fully naked like with just a thong. Im talking MAYBE pasties and a pair of shorts. Or a bikini top and shorts.

I just don't want to be tared and feathered for being the fat chick running around with not much on haha.

Welcome to ePlaya (to you as well as your campmates). What they said. You'll most likely survive. :) Lots of people wear nothing, next to nothing, or loose billowy clothing by day and are pretty comfortable, regardless of size. Normal common sense stuff applies - use plenty of sunscreen, drink lots of water, etc. and you'll be fine. Take a look around the boards, you'll find there are all kinds of ideas for things like shade structures and keeping cool, and if you don't see something covered that you're wondering about... ask.

Wear (or don't wear) whatever you are comfortable in. And if anyone don't like it - just remember their opinion is worth less than shit.

Aside from the occasional frat boy, you will not find a less judgemental group of folks anywhere.

The pictures that you might have googled tend towards the lovely youngster in a particular form of nudity or semi-nudity. You'll find on the ground that there's a lot more divercity. I never felt judged as heavy and unclothed. (Frankly, clothes are a bother to me, although I put up with them.) It's a little more complicated for me now, as the skin graft donor sites shouldn't be getting too much sun (and I have very mixed feelings about showing my legs), but I doubt anyone would dare come up to me and say anything. Sarongs are a popular option, loose and light, and adjustable in various ways.

Thanks guys! Yeah I guess the playa is a whole nother world more so then I thought! You guys are awseome. If this is anything how the burn will be Im going to highly enjoy this.

I am doing this partly as therapy as I have bad social anxiety. I know odd huh? Ha Ha. But I think this will bring me out of my shell. Maybe I will hold up a sign saying " Hi I'm shy" ( yes I did read that thread lol) You wouldn't think I was. Im covered in tattoos and work as a hair stylist and makeup artist ( need help with hair or makeup at the burn... come find me!)


I really want to make this the best I can and take full advantage of it! I want to learn Poi in this next 11 months as well as make a geodesic to bring with. Thank god my moms husband is one of the best green builder in the Northwest! He knows all about keeping homes cool and to not use a lot of energy. So lots of thinking to do about how I want to set up camp.


Is it the end of aug yet?!? lol

Also maybe some one can help me out. What is the deal with discounted tickets? Requirements?



Oh yeah- Hi! This is me :) I'm bald now, The other pic is from the "hair" and accessory/furry line I make.

Getting rid of expectations is the hardest thing, those hopes and dreams will keep you from flowing with the event and being one with it and all that may come your way. I have social anxiety too, my first burn I thought I had prepared myself but by Wednesday I was hit with a big time depression feeling really disconnected lonely in a crowd and a neighbor pointed out to me that hey I have them and the world around me, and it really is beautiful. I realized those hopes and dreams hadn’t been gotten rid of and were screwing me over, and from then on it was a beautiful thing.

Moral of the story is expect to have some bad times as well as some great ones I’ve heard from a lot of people Wednesday was about when they crashed, it will pass and it will be great!
Ok yeah I just told you to “expect” right after I told you to get rid of expectations, but it really does make sense when your there trust me.

I suspect you will find the event a 100% positive experience and everyone accepting of you and yours.

One of the most memorable vignettes I took home with me in 2011 occurred early in the morning as I was staggering back to camp after carousing all night. I saw up ahead a very large woman, completely nude, floating across the intersection wishing everyone a joyous day and a chorus of folk from all directions shouting back "I love you"s and "you're beautiful"s. She truly was beautiful in every sense of the word.

It just felt so right that here was someone that probably faces her share of unnecessary obstacles in defaultia putting herself out there and receiving complete acceptance in return.

Hey!!! I am from Iowa too, but not a virgin and would LOVE to help you in any way possible! We do a couple meetups for Iowa Burners and future burners a year but would love any and all questions you may have , looks like you are off to a fantastic start here though. You can email me at iowa@burningman.com with ANYTHING your heart desires as far as questions and I will answer them all to my best knowledge :D I am sure people here will be a great help as well.

Not sure what part of Iowa you are from but we are doing a campout next week of Iowans that like burning man style things (some have gone , most go to regional events, some never have either) near Colo and can find info about that at the Iowa Burners page on facebook for this event: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=201509199903705

There is even talk of doing an Iowa Camp at BM 2012 so there will be an oasis to kick back at if you tire of being around all them weird west coast people :D

Hey Jeff!!

I am on the facebook page!! :) It is me Danielle. I posted a comment on there that it will be a bit of a issue for me because I do not drive and have to be back in Marshalltown at 9am because it is 4 of the cities around me and Mtown's homecoming. I am a hair stylist and makeup artist. BUSY day for me. I don't know if something could be done to help me with that or not. I mean im 30 min away from the site. Let me know.

That would be cool if we could plan up a camp for next year. Fake corn anyone and straw hats? hahah.

Maybe, but you're pretty good at this stuff, so I think you'll make it work.
Plus, you've already requested the time off work, so you're 1 step ahead!
