***Update: We've reached our initial goal of $1,500. Thank you to everyone that helped make our goal a reality. We are beyond excited to share Ego Trip with all of you.
But why stop at $1,500? Any additional funds raised will be used to make Ego Trip even better than originally planned. New plans include:
- "Dance over Your Broken Ego" - An art piece that doubles as a dance floor made of broken mirrors
- The 1st annual Welcome Home Party on Monday night - Ego Trip will team with Shangri-Lawless to throw a massive Welcome Home party on Monday night
- Better lighting (More lazers!)
- Reinforced sound
***Update: Ego Trip has been placed at 9:15 and Geranium! ***
We’re fun, we’re wild; we’re the hottest on the Playa. And because our hearts are as big as our egos, we want to use our powers for good.
Burning Man has changed all of our lives for the better. It has made us better friends, better citizens of the universe, and better looking; so now we want to give back.
The concept of Ego Trip is to take the energy of vanity and egotism and play with it. We want our fellow burners to wander in, get wrapped up in themselves, and then get spit back out with a brand new perspective on their own wonderful self-centeredness – hah! We will have a bar – Narcissus Saloon – where we will be serving drinks that will “help make others finally look at hot as you.” We will have an advice booth where you’ll find out you’re way too attractive to be at fault for anything and vanity is the answer to every problem. The main feature of our area will be a large stage – The Vain Stage. A backstage area styled as a vintage dressing room will beckon people to primp and prepare or just spend some time staring at themselves at all the right angles. A photo booth complete with props will finish off this part of the camp. A projector in the main area will show the photos as they come through the system – you’re on display all the time here at Camp Ego Trip!
We will also organize several major productions to happen throughout the week – a Vain-i-Tea Party, I'm So Hot Chocolate Sunrise party, various workshops, monologues, and games galore. The entire camp will be adorned in mirrors, unabashed reinforcement that YOU ARE PERFECT.
