Le sigh

First Saturday night on the playa.

I envisioned myself sitting in camp, socializing with friends into the wee hours of the morning.

Laughing.

Telling jokes.

Or perhaps hopping on my bike and taking a little tour of our growing city.

I DEFINITELY didn’t picture what happened.

I drank TOO MUCH gin TOO QUICKLY and had to go to bed.

Le sigh.

Tejas, on the other hand, stayed out all night and didn’t return until the sun was coming up.

Le stud.

The theme for Burning Man this year is iRobot.

I think this is going to be a fun theme for outfits this year.

I have a pair of Star Wars robot leggings which I can’t wait to wear.

And I have a pair of robot leggings, which I just received in the mail specifically for wearing at Burning Man.

I like to think off leggings as the lazy man’s Burning Man outfit.

They come in cool graphic designs and are easy to wear.

Voilá!

Instant style.

However, it can be a little hot during the day

Too hot for leggings.

So I’ll probably wear my leggings at night.

I bought THIS awesome jacket from H&M to go with my robotic leggings:

So I’ve got my jacket.

I’ve got my leggings.

What kind of shirt will I wear?

No shirt, it’s Burning Man.

I’m wearing pasties!

Ok, I lie.

I bought a silver tank top to wear under my jacket.

Perfect for the occasion!

The Burning Man 2018 theme came out and it’s iRobot!

How cool is that?!

I can practically imagine all the Robo Cops, Stormtroopers, and R2D2s on the playa.

I myself own a pair of R2D2/C3PO leggings, in spandex, which is my new favorite fabric.

I did however take to my favorite costume website (etsy) to find something more. . . well, ROBOTIC.

And I found this amazing silver and black jumpsuit, which I think will look FANTASTIC so long as I can squeeze into it.

And just to have a little fun with it (because I really don’t need to add more than my Burning Man black clod stomper boots), I bought a bright blue wig and futuristic wraparound sunglasses.

Perfection achieved!

iRobot, here I come!
