The Butterfly Queens

The Butterfly Queens are going to Burning Man!

Burning Man is one of the world’s largest arts and music festivals, held annually in the Nevada desert.  It’s a truly incredible event, drawing nearly 60,000 people – they come together from all over the world to create a city of dreams that rises spectacularly from the desert floor.  What better place for all 7 of Butterfly Queens to appear with their majestic wings, dancing in a desert sunrise!

For those lucky enough to be attending the Burning Man Festival this year, be sure to remember this time:  Friday morning, August 30th, right at sunrise in front of this year’s amazing pyramid Temple of Whollyness.  This is the *only* moment of the event the Butterfly Queens will emerge briefly from the dream-world, to dance for everyone and share their magic, so you definitely won’t want to miss it! They will be arriving in truly impressive style – on the deck of a massive, absolutely incredible Steampunk Airship!!  The wonderful creators of the Airpusher’s Steampunk Airship have kindly offered our Butterfly Queens a ride to the Temple so they can reserve their energy for their dance.  So when dawn is about to break, keep an eye out for the beautiful Airship gliding across the playa, and you will see the Butterflies Queens aboard.

    I saw footage of the Butterfly Queens at Burning Man and would love to bring the concept of a Butterfly Queen to AfrkaBurn 2014. Please can someone contact me about the creation of the outfits?
    Thank you
