Hi there -
I built myself a cigarette girl costume this year for wearing out on the Playa.  I'm fully aware that it's going to get wrecked out there, but I don't want to put all the time into making this as not wear it!! I'll try and post some "after" photos in a couple weeks!  Anyone else preparing for the burn??

So there's a steel boned corset, pumpkin bloomers, skirt, gloves, feather bustle, and the hat which I built with buckrum and wire.  Not pictured is my tray, which will carry all my gifts to the masses.  Ice cream at Burning Man? Yes Please!

Check out my blog for more photos

Crikey.  That is wonderful.  I love every bit of it.  You must have put a ton of time and work into that spectacular outfit. 
I hope it survives and I hope you come back with some action shots to share with us, because I'd love to see more of it.
Fantastic!

I'm glad to see someone else posting things for the Burn! It looks really great! How are the feathers on the playa? I've never tried bringing them because of the inevitable MOOP mess.

Are you planning on wearing that for day or nighttime?

Very cool!

I absolutely love all the trims and buttons on the corset.  I mean, it's all beautiful, but those buttons! They're perfect!
