Last Minute Frenzy

All the Burning Man people are in a tizzy getting ready to go. Funk n' Trunk held a special Burning Man fashion event on Sunday and it was packed with the usual annual wierdos getting all glammed up to go roll around in the dirt. It's hard to even think that far ahead but I am going there too. I'm doing little to no preparation for it other than the food-water-shelter essentials, so easy it's practically automatic, and spending my time instead filling last-minute web orders and getting my business ducks in a row to go out of town. It's odd to not have to ask anyone for permission to run away from responsibility for a week and a half - I'm going to the first half of Burning Man, coming home to drop stuff off and sleep in a bed, then heading out to go backpacking with out-of-town friends.

The Funk n Trunk photos linked above, and the two Pandora's Trunk photos in the previous entry were taken by my friend Dan Rosen, Already There photography. Look out for an update to the Pandora's Trunk website soon with photos from the last event and hot tidbits about what's to come - the October 7th show is going to be all about art and live production - from sewing and serging fashion designers who will trim and tuck the clothes right on your body, gonzo millinery demonstrations by yours truly, cello/viola tag team music, fantastical makeup pieces by a professional esthetician to live art by a mystery artist. It's shaping up to be a really broad, unique experience - a great way to get warmed up for a Saturday evening of fun.
