#ckccbm2013 | Monday outfits

We've been back from the playa over 2 weeks now and still can't stop thinking or talking about it. With 10 of us there and and 5 of us actively taking photos, that's a lot of pictures to go through. Our camp has been sharing them through Dropbox, which is a wonderful way for multiple people to share multiple files.

One of the 10 principles of Burning Man is Radical Self-Expression, and what better way to express yourself than with what you are wearing. People are wearing all sorts of interesting, outrageous outfits (or absolutely nothing at all!) and half the fun of the whole trip is planning on what to wear!

{him: wig, vest & jeans, thrifted / tank: H&M / shoes: Doc Marteens, thrifted // her: cardi & shorts: thrifted / bra: VS / boots: Demonia}
I watched a video on YouTube saying that your clothes at Burning Man shouldn't be costumes but be outfits that you would like to but can't normally wear in your daily life. I am a relatively conservative dresser but like that I can show some skin at BM and not feel terribly self-conscious about it because there are tons of girls with tons less on :). And the hubs would never wear such bright colors (or jeans with stars on them) but it works out on the playa!

Our friend JC, however, has to win for best outfit of Monday night. We were dressing for a Michael Jackson vs. Prince party that night and good lord, he looks fabulous!

...and on the first full night in the desert, my hair was still looking decent. Wait until Saturday night's photos...

You are smoking! What a fun way to let loose a bit and do things you normally wouldn't do on your day to day. You can let your alter ego out to play :)

Wow - what a fab idea.

Wooo! You all look so awesome!! I'd totally wear Joe's pants if they came in my size. ;)
