Highlights from Burning Man 2013, mostly featuring stuff I made. Dana got on my case about posting pictures, so these are for her!

Hobo Death in random pants, made by Julianne

Jason’s long-time friend HOBO DEATH was really excited to get these leggings I made.

The Starstuff Express is made from a 1982 Schwinn Collegiate.

I loved meeting clients on the playa!


Barbie bikini, made by Julianne

When I stepped onto the platform “Barbie Girl” started playing. I had walked off the art car to go see some friends in Black Rock Year Book.

Kayla sunset, made by Julianne

I gave Kayla the teal velvet bikini top that morning, and then we went on a ladies-only art car cruise (with mimosas!)

 There are lots more pictures to see!

neon onesie, made by Julianne

My husband designed this neon fleece onesie and I sewed it up.

“Gearhead” was one of my favorite art pieces at Burning Man. The Sensatron is hiding behind the rocketship.

Which reminds me, one evening I was standing by Disorient as the lamplighters passed by. One lady shouted out “Hey Julianne! Come here!” She recognized me from my website! I didn’t know Melissa, but she had used my genie pants tutorial to make her own pair of pants. Another friend wound up meeting her a few days later. It was one of the coolest moments. Hi Melissa!

bodysuits, made by Julianne

Cosmo and I love our aqua bodysuits (mine is metallic and self-made)

Starstuff pendulum, made by Julianne

This pendulum was surrounded by large magnets in the ground, so you would be pulled back and forth. (picture from Maria Fomich)

I’m so glad that there were so many great photographers out there. Thank you for documenting part of the experience!

Hopefully, at some point I’ll take more detailed shots of individual pieces. I just did not feel like posing for pictures most of the time when I was actually on the playa. It happens every year.
