My wear-a-thon is almost done, and I’m headed back to my “real life” in San Francisco. Before tomorrow’s final post, I wanted to share one of our earlier photos that slipped through the cracks.
In this outfit, I’m wearing the dress without any added petticoats, overcoats, or other frills. The primary accessory is this necklace, a handmade Scrabble-tile piece that was loaned to me by my friend Bad Ash.
I want to use this moment to express my love for all the artists, costumers, designers and photographers who gave their time (and clothes) to our little wear-a-thon. There are so many creative people in the Burning Man community, and a surprising number of them chipped in to work on this project. Every day of the wear-a-thon has been surprising and exciting, and it’s all due to the tiny touches of those creative hands.
Throughout this process, I learned a lot about making “more from less”. I’ll never look at my clothes the same way, now that I’ve discovered what one dress can do.
