This Mad Max-Inspired Festival Is Like Burning Man After The Apocalypse

7. This Is Not Sparta

You’re free to express yourself as you please, but don’t think of coming dressed as, say, your favorite cartoon character. Your look must be grungy, dirty, and chaotic. You really truly need to look as though you’ve assembled your clothing from found parts you’ve scrounged together after a nuclear attack. Case in point: this motley troupe of post-apocalyptic gladiators.
