Not everyone goes glam at the burn, but for those of you that want to amp up your look with makeup, we have rounded up our favorite, glitter free, makeup tutorials for this year's burn. We've ordered them from least to most difficult. Enjoy!
Every year Burning Man releases a new theme that is meant to shape the art and inspiration for the burn. One of the most accessible ways to participate in the theme is to create outfits based on that year's topic.
Metamorphoses offers a variety of color options from beautiful butterflies to a phoenix rising from the ashes.
After having been to the burn seven times, I can honestly say this is my favorite theme. Burning Man is our cocoon. We arrive as little caterpillars, even if we’ve been before, and we dissolve for a week and forget everything we know, and remember things about ourselves long forgotten. Then sometime shortly after the burn we spread our new wings and fly.
Adriana, aka Dusty Princess and Greg took their ShiftPod to the playa for the first time this year. They came prepared with everything from a swamp cooler to a closet. See some photos below where I point out a few items that made the difference.
To some Burning Man seems like a no restrictions, no holds barred, adult playground where the rules don't apply. But even in the chaos and magic of the playa there are some guidelines you should follow. Some of these are based on following The 10 Principles, and some are based on the harsh conditions that you find at Black Rock City. So here are the fashion do's and don'ts of Burning Man.
When I saw that SHIFTPOD had released a MINI version of their tent I was so excited because not only is it more affordable, but it's also is much lighter and easier to travel with (hello Afrika Burn!)
