Post Apocalyptic Bedoin

Postby Finxiekins » Thu Jan 26, 2012 12:16 pm

First time burner here! My husband and I are going for the first time this year and I've been thinking of clothing ideas and I came up with this idea. I'm going to try and do a sort of playa fashion line with the theme being "Post Apocalyptic Bedoin". I've begun sketching out ideas and making purchases that reflect my ideas. So, I thought I would post my sketches here as I make them as well as any purchases made to reflect the idea. So, to start things off this is my first outfit - The inspiration was made when watching videos of the dust storms on the playa. I was inspired by how people appeared out of nowhere, as if made of the sand themselves.

Thanks for the feedback guys! I want to make things fashionable but functional - I want to be able to wear things I wouldn't normally. Burning man for me is breaking away from what confines me at home.

Oh! Oh ... oh ... oh .... I REALLY like that idea! Post-apocalyptic is dear to my heart ... but merge that with Bedouin ... and I can see opportunities all over the place. I was thinking steampunk for this year, but now .....
Thank you! xx

I really like your sketch!

I also kind of veer toward the Post Apocalyptic Bedouin look. I like "ethnic" stuff and it is also practical for the desert and dust.

Would love to see your nighttime version too.

A bit more sedate, but it is an Egyptian Bedouin abaya with added skirt and scarf:

Screw the costumes, just set up a sketching booth on the Esplanade.

Actually, I did plan on taking a SHIT TON of sketching/drawing/painting stuff and do caricatures of people as gifts, or even just sketching them. :D I really like the idea of gifting art, as it is a gift/art economy. As an update, I got my shemagh yesterday and it is pretty much the coolest headgear ever.

One word of experience: sketches on the playa tend to get trashed unless you have a way to back them, even cardboard will do. Charcoal is wretched, and black paper is nearly useless.

I give away art, two years ago I got some wonderful sketches from Nude Model Camp (not an accurate name), but I had to bring them home and stick them to something before I could hang them for gifting. Usually when I get donations of drawings, they come back with me to get a makeover for sturdiness.

My plan is to buy a whole bunch of frames at goodwill in order to protect the drawings in the playa. I don't use charcoal often, too messy. So, the plan is to draw the picture, frame it really quick, and gift it to the person. :D

Add a army grad camel back to that ensemble and you will be set to go for hours out on the open playa! PS best to pick up on ebay as I got mine for 1/2 the retail price

Cool. I recommend a giant post-apocalyptic Bedouin sombrero and a comfy chair.

For the functional bedoin look, I highly recommend getting a keffiyeh scarves. I wore one last year and it served many uses. Looked great too especially since you can tie them so many different ways (head, neck or body)

I would also totally read a comic book featuring your outfit on the main character. Love the look.

I love the post-apocalyptic look Finxiekins! I've been trying to get something like this to work, but I always find myself falling just short of it. I keep workin' on it!

Wow that is a really great look. I like it a lot. Not only do you have design skill but you are an artist too. I am jealous. I am trying to come up with something that will be comfortable, fun, and protect my red-headed Irish skin from the sun. LOL

Pink Burka, Hawaiian Muu-muu with beachcomber's strawhat, poncho and sombrero, pajamas and turban; all are similar but I prefer a cowboy's 4 foot square gladrag, red unionsuit and Longhunter's fedora.

I camped with someone last year that needed to avoid sun exposure due to the medication she was on. We wrapped her up in light weight sarongs, and had her carry a parasol around. Sun protection is easily achieved. Don't forget the sunscreen!

Took me a few moments, then I remembered. "Post apocalyptic bedoin" turned into post apocalyptic boudoir in my mind. About 0:50 in the clip.

I have discovered the ultimate question to life the universe and everything. "Does it burn?"
