Hello from Ohio!!

Hello from Ohio!!

Postby mzangelique » Sun Feb 12, 2012 2:01 pm

Hello, my name is Angelique. I'm 20 and finishing up a degree in psychology in Cleveland, Ohio before hopefully relocating to California for Graduate school. I'm studying to be a Marriage and Family Counselor and hope to spend my professional life fanning and rekindling flames of love and guiding streams of communication: talking to, listening, and counseling individuals is my calling, art and service work are my passions.

I hope to attend my first burn in 2013 and plan on spending the next year getting involved in regional events, planning a small art project, and developing my camp so that when it is my turn to be a virgin burner I can bring magic and spirit with me to gift as much as I can to the overall experience.

Presently I am in the process of:

Sewing a multitude of Alice-in-Wonderland inspired costume pieces and accessories, and then covering them in led's.
Gathering broken bike bits to make a recumbent tricycle that looks like a tornado (I'm designing a steampunk Dorothy from Wizard of Oz Costume).
Crafting wearable multimedia art pieces for the purpose of gifting.
Brainstorming my next projects once these are completed!

By Burning Man 2013 I hope to have a pretty well developed collection of art, knowledge and positivity to bring with me!

See you on the Playa,
Angie (In Wonderland) <3

welcome to eplaya.

Those projects sound great and I can't wait to see them.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Welcome Miss Angie! I'm looking forward to seeing your tornado tricycle. Recumbent trikes work well on the Playa -- here's mine:

Welcome to Eplaya! Your costumes sound wonderful. I wish I had that kind of creative brain. The steampunk alice sounds very intriguing.

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome I appreciate it!

And that bike is AMAZING!! I feel inspired to break out of the box in the design of mine, having seen yours :)

And tamarakay, should we happen to be on the playa at the same time I'd love to gift you a steampunk Alice accessory!
In a week or so I'll post some of my progress in another forum to get some creative feedback :)

Thank you. That trike is amphibious -- no need for that on the Playa! :lol:
