Burning Man MOOP ; Feathers Yay or Nay?

Dancer at Sunrise, 2013. Photo by Paulius Musteikis. So…What the heck is MOOP and how does it pertain to feathers at Burning Man?  

“MOOP is an acronym for “Matter Out of Place”, a convenient way of referring to anything that is not originally OF the land on which our event (Burning Man) takes place. So everything that wasn’t originally ON or OF the Black Rock Desert, no matter how small, is considered MOOP, and is to be removed as part of our Leave No Trace efforts.”

Year after year The Feather Place gets many requests for feathers that will be worn by revelers attending Burning Man. We usually tell our clients that feathers are not Burning Man friendly and explain the “Leave no Trace” efforts at Burning Man. This year has been no different except that we recently came across the Burning Man Official Blog  Feathers are MOOP, Right? Well, That Depends on YOU...  It was brought to our attention that feathers might be making a comeback at Burning Man keeping in mind that…

“…if you want to wear feathers, that’s fine … but make sure they’re attached in ways that won’t fail, and if you can’t then don’t wear them, because it’s on YOU if they become MOOP. (And that goes for anything you bring to Black Rock City.)”

So there you have it. Exciting feathered news! Be smart when it comes to your feathered frocks and make sure to keep them well maintained! The ban on feathers had been intended to address poorly made costumes that leave trails of feathers behind. Use good judgment and be careful about what you wear on the playa. Remember that certain Feather Boas are still a BIG FAT No No!  If you are planning to attend Burning Man we recommend checking out the websites  Survival Guide  for more information and to see a full list of do’s and don’ts .

Burning Man is from August 25 – September 1 … Burn responsibly 🙂
