burning man 2016Members of the Trash Kan Marchink Band perform as approximately 70,000 people from all over the world gather for the 30th annual Burning Man arts and music festival in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, U.S. August 29, 2016.Jim Urquhart/ReutersThis year’s Burning Man — the wild, weeklong, annual festival in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert — will start on August 27.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to venture to the desert and follow a 31-year tradition of creating a temporary city, making art, throwing nonstop parties, and burning “the man” (a 100-foot flammable structure that resembles a stick figure). 

Another essential part of Burning Man is the costumes, which usually include some combination of unicorn horns, goggles, Mylar spacesuits, and glow-in-the-dark gear. Burning Man’s fashion has changed since its founding in 1986, when just 35 people attended.

From t-shirts to spandex bodysuits, take a look at the evolution of the festival’s fashion below.
