We thought a Panda in a tu-tu was a proper analogue for an irresponsible burner. Plus, sad sparkle ponies are hard to illustrate.

Should show a panda getting his/her spike heels caught in a gap.

I dunno. Sparkleponies go for those tattoos (at least mine do). I could see them with tears inked into their cheeks. (Either set.)

Yep, I am freaking the fuck out. The first little art panic attack is creeping up on me. Its a little funny how every year, no matter how much time and effort you spend preparing these last couple weeks are still pure madness.

The Pier is almost done. We as a crew have a whole bunch of tasks that are about 90% done. Of course, it would be nice to have a whole lot more tasks that are 100% done. We aim to impress, and this year we have set the bar damned high. Will we hit it, yes, will we go over it, that is yet to be seen. Regardless thought, the ride has been an adventure to say the least, and I can't recommend it more!!!

Thanks to all you Eplaya folk for helping take this idea and make it sing. We have incorporated a ton of the great feedback and I think everyone will be happy. Sorry to those who got lost in the mix, I found myself playing catch up and just couldn't seem to coordinate the out of towners. The local crew has to call me enough as it is to find out what is happening :).

Awesome! I'M sorry I couldn't be more helpful and make it over more to lend a hand. I can't wait to see it on the playa and plan to come say hi and see if there is anything I can do throughout the week for you guys!

Awesome. That was quick, only sent those 3 days ago. Sorry for the long delay.

Ohh, pier address is 3:45 and almost Esplinade. If anyone knows what camps are right there I would love to talk to them and make sure everything is koshur.

Yay! We're neighbors. I'll be @ 3:30 & A in Terminal City and will spend many happy hours on the pier dangling my paws over the edge and watching the waves of heat roll in :)

Sweet! Fandango is at 4 & Esplanade. We'll be there (but the BRC Weekly staff is camping deep inside the village this year). We're a huge village with a 24 hour bar facing forward, I don't speak for the camp but I can't see why anything would be un-kosher about it.

Hey, I know that the 3 o'clock portal is Transmorphagon (funk music stage) and DOTA (Department of Tethered Aviation). I bet the DOTA would love to come fly their kites from The Pier.

I'm also on the pier crew...

we have about 20-30 fishing poles that will live on the pier and be available for hippie fishing, but we also want to extend the invitation for anybody to bring their own fishing poles if you like.

This is all coming together pretty magically and we're sooo excited for you all to climb, frolic, fish, relax, socialize, zone out, etc!

The thing is in such a great neighborhood. Pier camp should be somewhere near the Pier and B st. Come by for a whole lot of fire spinning, and everyone please say hello at some point. I am not sure that this thing would have ever happened without all the support from Eplaya. Seriously dream come true kinda stuff. I remember during my second burn seeing art coming in on 40ft flat beds and wondering how they pulled that off and if maybe one day my art could ride in on one,..... sqweeeeee

Please remember, The Pier is for everyone. So use it however you damned well please. I only ask 1 thing. Please, please, please don't steal the barnacles. We spent an absurd amount of time making blue led barnacles and I am not sure I can keep myself from ninja kicking some poor hippie trying to take home a cool souvenir (seriosuly, we made 950+ in 5 days. That is not counting doing the molds).
