For some reason, I always connect “Burning Man” to that really bad movie, “The Whicker Man”, then I get totally creeped out because I think the festival participants kidnap a poor soul (always looks like Nicholas Cage for some reason) and put him in a giant man structure and burn him alive…yeah, it’s safe to say I’ve never gone to Burning Man. I shared this bit of information with one of my closest friends and after shaking her head and rolling her eyes, she set me straight and told me all about her three trips to the festival of awesome. After picking her brain, she told me a few absolutes.
- Bring toys or trinkets because it’s all a barter system.
- Know who the rangers are.
- Above all, since it is in a desert, don’t wear synthetic materials while the sun is out…after it sets, costumes are fair game.
I listened to her advice and due to natural curiosity, I had to do some research. Now, after sifting through many images with a wide array of styles; everything ranging from blue pasties to the Wicked Witch of the West, I started thinking…This is Burning Man! You don’t have to be practical. The whole point of going is to get back to your roots. Be proud of what your mama gave you and show it off!
