1776 Costume Camp, Still Accepting Applications!

This is our loving vision of putting costume themes on steroids! 1776 is now totally costume-based. (Sexy!) Yes, we still have gag reenactments, history, roaming celebrations, debates, nostalgic music and movies too.

I hope this site shows everyone how dedicated the '76ers are to this project. The themes are SO strong at our camp. It really will be an other worldly dream! Far from a yuppie camp; we always need more costume snobs. Organize the Chaos; organize the sex; organize the bling; organize the love. Theme baby, theme.


My idea is to have camps where we all dress up as:
colonialists and redcoats on monday
indians and cavalry on tuesday
civil war soldiers on wednesday
WWII soldiers, Nazis, and Japs on thursay
Communists and nukes on friday
and terrorists and oil execs on saturday

We can show cool movies for each days era too, have funny ballots on really old fashioned political agendas, have humorous political debates on subjects that people don't even remember today, and themed food for each era.

There is so much to work with here... I know there are history people out there who would love to reenact all sorts of bogus stuff.

Here's the list of themes for each day of BM:

Monday:
REVOLUTION ERA 1760-1820
American Revolution, Whiskey Rebellion, French Revolution,
Louisiana Purchase, War of 1812
American Rev. Debate
Whiskey Rebellion

Tuesday:
CIVIL WAR ERA 1821-1880
Age of Jackson, Mexican American War, Civil War, Changing the Constitution, Reconstruction & Jim Crow
Civil War Debate
Tequila

Wednesday:
GUILDED AGE 1881-1925
Foreign Wars, Anti-Trust, Federal Reserve Act
Progressive Era, WWI, Scopes Monkey Trial
Progressive Era Debate
“Prohibition?”

Thursday:
WORLD WAR II ERA 1926-1948
Eclipsing Europe, New Deal, WWII
Holocaust, Bretton Woods, Atomic Bombs
WWII Debate
"Draft party"

Friday:
COLD WAR ERA 1949-1990
Panic of 1949, Korean War, Communist Blacklist
Vietnam War, Fiat Currency Switch, Communism Dies
Cold War Debate
Vodka

Saturday:
CURRENT TIMES 1991...
Gulf War I, Middle-East Peace Accord, September 11th,
Gulf War II, Budget Crisis, Current Engagements
Early Foreign Policy Debate
Open Bar, Burn 'da Man?


Recently our website was hacked, however the google docs application at the top still works... as of July 28th 2011

It's awesome except for the links you give for costumes. "Spicy legs?" I thought the idea was authenticity. I'm the "costume snob" you refer to, and that is some bulllsheeeet. There's insane amounts of historical costuming references out there without encouraging further use of poorly constructed, shoddy packaged "sexy" costumes.

That said, I hope some people do keep what I thought was the spirit of the camp, because I love me some historical re-enacting and dress-up.

No offense. I've done costumes and I've done history.
Just not feeling the 1776 vibe at BRC.
Hope it works out for you, though.:)

Sweet idea on the tier. Looks like Monday parade is planned then. People also want to "roll their own" with the constitution on day 1. Smoke the constitution.

Frilly white wigs encouraged Monday!

Inspiring video... almost surreal.

Those costumes remind me of an 'rite of passage' greeter costume I was
going to do....

Monty Python Holy Grail: the BRIDGE of DEATH!!!

Now thats a right of passage!

or

Monty Python Holy Grail: Black Knight, "none shall pass", "it's only a flesh wound!"

So many people have memorized all the lines from that movie, I can usually find a random person to do the entire scene from! 8)

That's important though: we need more humor and fun to complement the serious attention to detail like the guy explaining in the video. It's the ying/yang of the Art form.

Is there anyone on here who will take Rex in for their camp? I guess we're gonna evict you by calling the Rangers bud. I can't believe how much you drink. Holy Christ.

Oooh Flapper Girl! The Guilded age and up tends to be easier and more fun for us girls...Though anyone got a hoop skirt? I know the playa's got lots of 'petticoats' but I guarantee The DAR wouldn't be caught dead dress like that :wink: authenticity vs. sexy/comfort, always in conflict.

I have a hoop skirt, although it was made into a MOOP skirt costume a while back (trash bag ruffles and baby wipe flounces).
These are not my fuckos.

Have to disagree about the 20s being easier and more fun - unless you naturally fit the desired boyish figure of the time.

I have petticoats, hoopskirts, panniers, bumrolls, lobster tails, crinolines, etc. but they're cumbersome to pack and use the loos in.

AntiM- That sounds like quite the political hoop skirt.

C.f.M.- I agree to a point, but remember the authentic traditional dress, from stays out, where actually about 12lbs of clothing, that's no so fun to wear even in the winter, so certainly not in the heat. And as you said, using the loos won't be fun. Chamber pots anyone?

Movies for BM ordered; please post your own recommendations too:

Monday- Last of the Mohicans
Tues-Unforgiven
Wed-Swing Kids
Thur- the Great Escape
Friday- Clue
Sat- Men who stare at goats


Follow up to the last post: The US constitution was adopted on July 4th, 1776; it was signed over the following month; do the research. Those who claim the date pertains to a different agenda are over-zealous in the power of such efforts. I also remind you that the American Revolution was a wig movement, which opposed that class organization manifested in Britain. Once again, a broader knowledge base is required for these points.

Is this a joke?

I hope so. Or maybe I hope not. If it's not, I do enjoy the sight of the pedant trapped by his own pretensions.

Good eye: the Declaration was 1776, not the Constitution. However, the original Declaration of War was at Mecklenburg in 1775, but only pertained to N. Carolina.

The important point is that the truths were more than self-evident, as the majority of the signers from 1775 died.

Perhaps this is the real concept about the 1776 camp: there is a specific historical context, and not a postmodern, dadaist, arbitrary concept. This is one of the many reasons why 20th century culture that seeks meaning in non-reason has failed:

While the critique of Western Civilization's 2 values of affluence and personal privacy are valid, the escape into non-reason the counter culture created lead us nowhere. If anything the counter-culture lead to despair that it was merely a function of complacent consumer culture. Larry Harvey makes this last point quite explicitly. How then do we combine specific, meaningful culture with valid critique of modern America?

We get back to the beginning; the real beginning.

1776 begs the question: "Do burners have the fortitude to totally remake society, or is Burning Man merely an escape from a system set in stone?"

Dane has added more 'figures' to the murals. That translates to more hot ass. Apparently, despite their limitations in wars as spys; women were still sex objects back in history.

who knew?

Ooh, there's gonna be fireworks (Fireworks!)
On the Fourth of July (red, white, and blue!)
Red, white, and blue fireworks
Like diamonds in the sky. (diamonds in the sky!)
We're gonna shoot the entire works on fireworks
That really show, oh yeah,
We declared our liberty 200 years ago.

Yeah!

In 1776 (fireworks!)
There were fireworks too (red, white, and blue!)
The original colonists,
You know their tempers blew (They really blew!)
Like Thomas Paine once wrote:
It's only common sense (only common sense)
That if a government won't give you your basic rights
You'd better get another government.

And though some people tried to fight it,
Well, a committee was formed to write it:
Benjamin Franklin, Philip Livingston *,
John Adams, Roger Sherman, Thomas Jefferson,
They got it done (Oh yes they did!)
The Declaration, uh-huh-huh,
The Declaration of Independence (Oh yeah!)
In seventeen hundred seventy six (Right on!)
The Continental Congress said that we were free (We're free!)
Said we had the right of life and liberty,
...And the pursuit of happiness!

Ooh, when England heard the news, (Kerpow!)
They blew their stack (They really blew their cool!)
But the colonists lit the fuse,
There'd be no turning back (no turnin' back!)
They'd had enough of injustice now
But even if it really hurts, oh yeah,
If you don't give us our freedom now
You're gonna see some fireworks!

And on the Fourth of July they signed it
And 56 names underlined it,
And now to honor those first 13 states,
We turn the sky into a birthday cake.
They got it done (Oh yes they did!)
The Declaration, uh-huh-huh,
The Declaration of Independence (Oh yeah!)
In seventeen hundred seventy six (Right on!)
The Continental Congress said that we were free (We're free!)
Said we had the right of life and liberty,
...And the pursuit of happiness!

We hold these truths to be self-evident,
That all men are created equal
And that they are endowed by their creator
With certain inalienable rights.
That among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

And if there's one thing that makes me happy,
Then you know that it's (ooh)
There's gonna be fireworks!
