Here Are The 10 Most Ridiculous Costumes From Burning Man 2018


Burning Man Festival 2018 is officially in the books. 80,000 people, from Instagram models to your middle school music teacher with a braided rat tail and gingivitis, flocked to the Black Rock Desert 120 miles north of Reno to paint each others faces and dance to electronic dance music dressed as a character from Mad Max for nine days.

If you aren’t familiar with the festival’s clientele, these photos should bring you up to speed. Here are my top 10 most ridiculous outfits from Burning Man 2018.


“Come meet my friend, Brent. We used to work together in IT sales but ever since he listened to that War on Drugs album, he’s never been the same.”

Don’t let the hypnotizing repeating circles distract you from the fact that she murdered a man and left one for dead at the end of Ex-Machina.

If Cowboys rode Vespas instead of horses…

Serious question, bro. How do you shit in that thing?

Pictured: your high school history teacher who wore tevas, lit incense in his classroom, and  was totally cool with you calling him by his first name.

“Hi, I’m Matt. I’m horny too. Maybe I’ll see you over in the meditation station? If not, totally cool. K bye.”
“Hi, I’m Matt. Cool bike, I used to have a Huffy. Front and back pegs. Sup.”

When you come from generations of Storm Troopers but your dad left you out of the will.

The human manifestation of a Lisa Frank trapper keeper. All grown up.

If the Ultimate Warrior got really into hot yoga.

Until next year my freaky friends, stay weird.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
