Furkini, Leather Chaps, and Accessories (side view)

Description:
Worn at the Burning Man festival in 2008, the furkini was designed and sewn by James Hayes, a costume designer in Los Angeles. James and his partner, along with friends, set up “Camp Furkini” every year, and gift nearly 50 furkinis to men they call “costume challenged.” The garment design and construction is outlined in depth in the 2009 documentary, Somewhere in Between.
