FUNGITRON

30 December 2009

So I came up with this idea on the looong drive back from Burning Man (2,500 miles=lots of time to think). Fungitron debuted at Halloween but its real venue is Burning Man, with a planned appearance at Mardi Gras along the way.

These Smurfs and I danced in the street to the Fraggle Rock theme song.

I wore it to Voodoo Fest during the day, which was awesome! People kept coming up to me to pose for pictures; I was the unofficial mascot of a music/head shop called The Mushroom; at the Gogol Bordello show I really stood out and was easy to spot on the jumbotron, as well as by the band! Also I was interviewed for a spot on Fuse TV, which was pretty cool.

The bodysuit is silver sequins lined with nude spandex. I added silver rick-rack and some rhinestones for extra pizzazz. The hood is not attached to the suit.

The cap is paper mache! The white spot are cut out of milk cartons and actually cover little bowls, which eventually will have LEDs in them. For Halloween I put in glow sticks, so I really stood out at the festival and on Frenchman Street later that night.

Of course, there had to be a utility belt. My friend came over and borrowed another bodysuit. My boyfriend bought our socks.
