If it had my druthers, I’d dress the Swede in three days of facial scruff and a bed sheet.
And TECHNICALLY you can get away with that at Burning Man.
But of course if The Swede wants to let it go a little bit and cut loose, I’ve been scoping out options for him.
First of all, he did wear outfits at unSCruz last year.
My favorite was the Viking helmet.
But The Swede wants a more ACCURATE helmet, never mind that it will be HOT and HEAVY in the Black Rock desert.
Here’s what I found (to the tune of $300+ and shipping from Bulgaria):
Especially for a REAL LIVE (descendant of) Vikings!
Then, of course I found some shirts, vests, and shorts which I think would look great on him. Of course I’d rip the sleeves off the shirt and leave it unbuttoned.
In exchange, I’m willing to unbutton my shirts too 😉
Ironically, the BEST place to shop for Burning Man clothes is secondhand shops.
I’d pay money to see The Swede decked out in Steampunk.
We’ll just have to see if my dreams come true.
