Burning Man 2001

Here's some video of our costumes from Burning Man 2001:

Wearing these suits, we met a ton of people out on the playa... people would see us from far away in the dark and make a bee line to check us out, come over for a chat and to give us a little gift (beads, a "thank you", an incorrectly formed haiku, etc.)

We found that it was definitely worth it to spend some time working on what you were going to give back to the other participants.We went in 1999 without putting in so much effort, and it wasn't half the fun.

The active ingredients in these outfits were many yards of Cool Neon fiber, and some elbow grease.
