Costume Tips For The Playa

- Day and Night: Have day costumes and night costumes. Day costumes should include some kid of hat (or wear lots of sunscreen), and not cover too much skin so you don't get too hot. Nights can be quite cool so you'll probably want your legs and arms covered. (For example, I have a matrix full length leather coat - NOT so good for the day time! :-)

- Head Coverings: Be wary of covering your whole head. This is fine if you're a total introvert and prefer people not knowing who you are. But otherwise, full head masks can be a pain at any event, not just in the desert. People won't recognize you, they limit your vision, and they can get hot.

- Stand out: have something bright or unique on your costume, such as a bright red hat or bright purple ribbon or bright pink and white thigh high socks. Having something unique like this can help your friends pick you out in a crowd. It's great branding.

- Variability: Decide if you'll wear one costume and be known for that, or if you'll have a range of costumes.

- Ask yourself: How can my costume contribute to others? Or my character - what can I provide people? Is there a cool experience my character could give them?

- MOOP alert! (Matter Out of Place) Don't wear things that will blow away in the wind, which can be VERY strong. Boas, for example, are prohibited. Ensure all of your costume is secure.

- Durability: You're in the desert with 50,000 friends, and your costume could take a bit of a beating. So make any hinges or seams strong, and you make even get to wear it next year and/or at other events.

- Alter Ego: is there a part of your personality you want to express? Or something you've always wanted to be? Here's your chance :-)

- Outside the box: can you think of something noone has ever done before?
