The theme for 2009 BM is evolution. I can't think of any costume ideas!

I was thinking I could have one costume where I dress toe to head and the costume changes as you go up. Like the evolution of a bird or something. Maybe I should run around in cyborg armor with a broadsword. Hrm...

Come on, there are a million costumes you could do.

you could do the adam and eve thing....you could be a half man half monkey, or whatever the next step in human evolution is, an alien of sorts, you could be a cave man...

but i tend not to costume to the theme, i tend to costume to express myself at burning man. i have to costume for performances enough as it is

Yeah I didn't get it either, perhaps a reference to how stupid the MEDIA portrayed her, not her actual intelligence, which really is better than the average person. Not that I supported her, or Biden, but there were a lot of low blows that I thought were terrible.

I don't think I have a problem with how she was treated.

That's another story though.

methinks was an ironic refernce to 'Evolution' something ol' sarah probably doesnt agree with.

Im also considering heading to BM this year. Ive had a vague costume concept in my head for a couple of years which i never quite got around to developing. Ill call it the 'bicycle project' for the moment. I like the idea of combining a mode of transport with the costume.

Since ill be flying in - ill have to work out a way to create most of the outfit and a few key components, then spend a day modifying a cheap mountain bike when im over there. will post more details when i work on it a bit more.

My take on the Evolution theme - was in what cool ways could humans evolve? being a costume, my focus is on physical evolution (however if you can incorporate spiritual evolution in fancy dress by all mean go ahead!). Im thinking along the line of Hitchhikers Guide - Zaphods extra head, different limbs, skins, textures. whats that new computer game called? Spore?

anyway - ill do some more brainstorming in coming weeks.

Hey- I've bought our tickets!
And as for costumes, well, I'm old. SO my costume is-- keep being alive and you'll evolve into someone like me!

Update... any Ozzies intending to go to BM... Qantas is having an airfare sale to SanFran that is soooo cheap--$AUD 1200 ish RETURN! Finishes on Friday though.. so I'm diving in and booking plane tix today. Crikey, it looks like we are really going!
