Thriftin’ was mildly bountiful. Bountiful in a way that I’m like, “Oooo…but I will never wear this.”

It’s oddly shaped, and I’m thinking of using it as a hood for my playa cloak. My imaginary playa cloak…

It’s hard to stem a boot problem (as in, I have too many of them) when they’re like….fifty cents (dollar a pound Goodwill). Barbarella Queen of the Arctic Tundra…

Paintball mask?

Playa googles.

Creepy weird something else…

Now I just gotta figure out how to accumulate $600 or so in the next month or so…

I bought these things to make some pasties:

I tried to throw a dinner party, and finally framed my zombie/unicorn print.

It’s fairly ghetto and uneven (thanks, gin!) but the purple’s ok, and the diaphonous trim is stupid. I mean, awesome.

Whatever. I like it.

Back to thriftin’. I was SO sad this box was empty:

Oh, speaking of my ghetto-ass craftiness (and I use the term craftiness loosely…) I made my friend a bookmark. I super love making people stuff.

I won a crappy  Ebay auction of what I thought were nice Dresden Dolls prints. He mailed them late and threw in other stuff, like that Tori cut-out. She likes Tori, I make obituary bookmarks,

There was some shiny red stuff by the laminating machine and this faux-Oriental dangle in my car. Voila! And I am stealing this make-up idea:

The end.

Goggles redux

May 23, 2010

I pondered goggles last year (here) and ended up borrowing some – they’re on my must-have list. It was very nice to be able to move freely in a whiteout. I might even wear them more often, just to help my eyes out, this year. I was really, really hoping to get Lasik for the burn season, but hell. Money.

Goggles. Maximum Eyewear even has a “Burning Man” category.

I know I want them big enough to cover my glasses, if need be, and not have crappy foam. These military ones are still looking good, but I’m thinking a fold-up pair would be nice.

Found this nifty-looking dust mask.

This style is exactly what I’m looking for, large area of vision and fold-up. Gonna keep an eye out for something, cheaper, though…I’m not buying stuff like that until AFTER I get necessities taken care of.

Like getting TO BRC…I’m mildly bummed I missed Stag Camp registration, but I bet if I asked pretty please, they’d squeeze me in. My top choice now is smack on the Esp, one factor which manages to negate the otherwise Epic nature of the deal…unfortunately, looking at goggles has led me to tents. More tents. Making me tense. Har har.

I generally avoid more commercial-name tents but here’s a Coleman and Swiss Gear that caught my eye

Coleman Weathermaster Legacy has pretty good reviews, including “easy to set up.” My friend has used her Swiss Gear – from Wal-Mart – for years, now. This one’s kinda cute:

This Cabela one is on the list (ha ha ha, yeah right. My list of 300 domiciles I want to try out…I just need a job as a tent tester!).
