I’m halfway through my wear-a-thon, and this photo is the last one I took during Burning Man. It was a great year, and it always ends too soon… I’m staying out in the desert for another week or two while we tear down the Black Rock City infrastructure, so you’ll still see plenty more photos of our wild, weird world.
This photo was a lucky coincidence indeed. I wanted to wear my Minnie Mouse ears, and I paired them with this half-dress that went right over the little black dress. My friend Tara Jean Reilly loaned it to me: a jumper of sorts made of black felt and pink knit.
I was pretty worn out on this day (most people are worn out by the end of Burning Man) and it was very dusty outside, so we went into the Center Camp Cafe in search of a sheltered location. And what did we find but this awesome Barbie box! A perfect backdrop for my cute pink outfit.
I also love that someone hanging out in the background appears to have a machine gun. Only at Burning Man…
