Lately I’ve been obsessed with synthetic hair.

I bought two clip in bangs – one red and one blue – for my Tank Girl costume.

I put them on under the trapper hat and tuck my hair into the cap and voilà!

I have Tank Girl’s colored hair without dying my own.

The clip in bangs remind me of some Swarovski crystal clip in extensions which I bought to wear at a Labyrinth-themed wedding at unSCruz.

So pretty!

So I scoped out custom synthetic clip in dreads on Etsy and lo and behold they have a selection of options for me.

Personally I love these Viking clip in extensions:

I also like these boho clip ins:

As much as I’d love to get them, it’s a little crazy for me to buy them thinking I’d wear them on the playa.

For one, the playa DESTROYS everything it comes in contact with.

For another, it’s hard enough to get a brush through my regular hair, let alone try to keep it neat and tidy with clip in extensions in while at Burning Man.

So I’m going to forego extensions for the time being but I’m really starting to feel the Viking vibe coming off this photo:

And I’m thinking it might be my inspiration photo for my next Burning Man outfit.

Le sigh!

Burning Man, Year 3

So I’m going a little nuts again, getting all excited about going to Burning Man again.

I guess I was wrong when I said Burning Man was not for me.

I CAN’T WAIT to go.

In particular, I’m excited about going with Tejas and his new lady love.

We’ll make an unusual trio, but unusual is what Burning Man is all about, no?

Here is some of the stuff I’ve been eyeballing on etsy that I’d like to wear to TTITD.

This lovely playsuit, which caught my eye and I instantly fell in love with the moment I saw it.
