Very good advice. As a virgin I guess I don't know that feeling you get out there so I can only imagine and hope I will feel better about my self if that makes sense. I am a huge seamstress. Not to the point where I can make a wedding dress ( im sure I could if I tried) but yeah. Alot of the clothes I am thinking about taking are things I have sewn up in the past few months. Getting inspired from past BM videos and pictures as well as etsy clothes that look comfy. Wriping apart shirts and making them into skirts, armwarmers ect ect. Once I see the list of events I will have a better Idea of things I want to make.

I really want to wear a skirt and "bra" while out there I just don't know if I can break down my self enough to do it. I really want to push my self out there and let all it out the window.

That's the spirit. The clothing theme is, "In your wildest dream". You might try a sheer cape at first. .....After you venture out and meet the population, you'll lose the cape and most of your inhibitions. Dress for YOU. Your smile will pull it off.

I'll bet you'll find that you can bring yourself to do skirt + bra. Here's a fun way to do it: if necessary, start with a sarong as a dress, cross-crossed over a bra and whatever (tied behind your neck). When you're comfortable that way, uncover the bra and drop the sarong down to the hip and tie at the side. Suddenly you're a bare-tummied island maiden. w00t.

You might not even need that. You will see people of all shapes wearing whatever the hell they want, and it's very encouraging.

Trust me, there are a lot of "plus sized" people of both genders running around uncovered. The photos & videos are a really really bad way to judge what happens out there.

Bring things just in-case you decide you want to. You may surprise yourself.

+3 I've said it before i didn't see a single unnatractive person while i was on the playa. Not because they were all beautiful models but because they did what they wanted too and dressed how they wanted too.

have i mentioned i wore my hello kitty towel as a sarong for a few days because i didnt bring a sarong/skirt/kilt?

My dear GD, I expect to see you this year in a sarong from Dye With Dignity. 8)

(((TTG))) I want to tell you that I saw, my very first day in BRC, I saw 2 older (60+) plus sized ladies, stark naked. And they were beautiful. 8) After that there was no "shell" left for me to come out of. :P

And a very dear person came to me, early in the week, to ask if I had a safety pin. :? Being the compulsively over-prepared person that I am, I OF COURSE had a safety pin I could lay my hands on immediately :lol: :lol: :lol: but as I offered it to her in quiet triumph :lol: she told me she wanted it to pin her dress closed over her cleavage! :shock: :shock: :shock: I told her she could certainly have the daggone pin, but, assured her that it was not at all necessary. The next time I saw her she had tiger stripes painted on her boobs. 8) Beautiful.

Yes, it is the pretty pretties who get their pictures taken and posted most often. The rest of us are busy being ourselves. You'll find what suits you.

LOL, some days it looks like a freaking AARP Naturalist Convention on the playa!
