There’s an endless supply of art out here in Black Rock City, enough that you can never feel like you saw everything the city had to offer. One artist who brings back amazing sculptures year after year is Michael Christian. This is his 2010 contribution, a spinning steel globe called “Home”.
For this gunmetal backdrop, I picked my vintage 1970s gunmetal pantsuit. This was a gift from a woman who really wore it during the 70s, and made me promise I’d wear it too. It’s made some sort of stretchy poly/Lycra, with a one-shoulder, draped, sequined top.
I wore the dress over my shoulders, and buttoned it in the back to make a cape of sorts. I added another thrift store belt–a wide elastic band with patent leather enclosure–and my black fingerless gloves. Just like yesterday’s white gloves, these are by Yohji Yamamoto / Y-3.
Big hair completes the look. Make no mistake: we’re at Burning Man now!
