What to Wear, What to Wear?

project-handmade-organic-armor-egyptian-310x450Wondering about all the fabulous outfits you’re going to need, for a week in the desert heat, a week in the cool desert nights, and a week in the freezing desert early mornings? That’s really three weeks worth of outfits, isn’t it? At least! Think of all the bikinis! Think of all the shoes! And sometimes it’s gonna be dusty, and sometimes it’s gonna be so hot you’re gonna want to be naked. And covered in sunscreen, of course.

Well, good news Burners. We’ve got some trunk shows coming up. If anyone knows of any others, please comment and I’ll update the list.

You can always go and swap out your costume for free, on the Esplanade at Kostume Kult (3:15)

Fellas, here’s a great selection of stores for you, compiled by an expert. I note Phoenix Rising gets #1, their stuff is great.
