Fertility 2.0 Theme Outfits and Pieces

What are your ideas for costumes for this year's theme?

I'm personally gonna construct something out of some fake flowers that weren't used last year.

You know Fufa,,, I've really struggled with that question myself,,, so I've decided to wear the same as always,,,

But,,, yeah,,, fertility is difficult to express without being blatantly bawdy,,, or at least perceived as some kind of perversion. For some reason though, PEEPS jumped into my mind when I first heard about the theme. So I bought 50 DOZEN of the little fuckers. I'm still not absolutely positive what I'll do with them. If you can wear them without making MOOP, it could be a worthy endeavor.

I"m thinking a rhinestone and sequin(totally moop proofed, of course) leotard.........booty shorts , black knee high "Jack boots" a stenciled sports bra and a Carmen Miranda fruit hat.
Some fake flowers, to go with the fake fruit, would be "divine".

It'll be an outward manifestation, of my "fertile imagination".

I've never really thought in terms of making "theme clothing" for myself, this year will be no different. I'll have plenty of fun stuff to wear, and hopefully a few new pieces, but nothing designed specifically to fit this year's art theme.

What would the stenciled sports bra have written on it?

Or am I demonstrating my sports bra ignorance?

Well we have themed art, themed parties within the burn, and themed brochures and stickers. Why not themed outfits?

My first burn, I actually expected people to be wearing metropolis themed stuff, but they weren't.

I think it would be so cool to have that.

we aren't dressing theme either. Ken wants sarongs for daywear, and he wants me to make him something sexy for evening. Since I think he looks sexy in anything he puts on i'm a bit lost on where to go with it. I'm into comfort more than costume, but I have purchased a few corsets as Ken likes them. Also planning on dyeing a couple of silk dresses or wraps. I love floaty things.
When the only tool you got is a hammer, every problem looks like a hippie.

Mmmmmm I love the smell of Burning Man Token
