Burning Man, the annual festival in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, has chosen “Metamorphoses” as its theme. The weeklong festival and temporary city, which exists from August 25 to September 2, 2019, chooses a theme each year for participants and artists to focus on with their art, contributions and costumes. In recent years, the costumes for Burning Man have become ever more elaborate and playful while sticking close to each year’s theme.
Halloween Empire is excited about this year’s theme, as it is one that gives revelers and attendees lots of latitude in choosing a costume. We have several popular elements available that have shown up quite a bit in past Burning Man costumes and we’re confident these same popular items will be used to create gorgeous, over-the-top costumes for this year’s event as well. All of them feature some element of transformation in them in keeping with the Metamorphoses theme.
Wings of All Kinds
What better example of metamorphoses is there than a caterpillar turning into a butterfly? Or a human evolving into an angel? Our butterfly and fairy wings are brilliantly colored and beautifully detailed with iridescent touches and comfortable straps for wearing all day long. Or perhaps you’d rather transform into something more sinister or mysterious? We also have bat wings, vampire wings and feathered wings. Go dark or go light but go with wings as a part of your costume to truly represent your personal metamorphoses.
Tutus to Set Hearts Aflutter
Tutus are one of the most popular costume accessories seen at Burning Man every year. Women transform themselves into dancers, men transform themselves into women, people transform themselves into unicorns in tutus. Tutus can become whatever you want them to be as a part of your Burning Man costume this year. The frothy, frilly quality of our brightly colored tutus will be a part of your metamorphoses from your day-to-day ego to your Black Rock City persona. Order a few tutus in different colors for a layered look, or stick with one glorious, trademark color.
Superheroes go through a metamorphoses every time they step out of their routine lives and into a superhero persona to save the world or rescue someone in distress. If you’re a mild-mannered accountant by day, morphing into a superhero for Burning Man can mirror your desire to help the world in some way. Black Panther, Superman, Wonder Woman…they all go through a metamorphoses as they learn to accept and use their abilities to help others. Step into your superhero costume for Burning Man and you’ll live the life of your alter ego for a few days in Black Rock City.
