63 Apocalyptic Pics From The ‘Wasteland Weekend’ Where Costumes Are Mandatory

Category : travel

About 4,000 people have flooded California’s Mojave Desert for the annual post-apocalyptic festival called Wasteland Weekend, and the pics looks out of this world. The festival, which was inspired by the Mad Max film series, is unlike most desert parties because it requires all attendees to be in costume. Yes, even staff members and journalists. The idea is to create a full-immersion effect, making everyone feel like they’re inside a Mad Max universe for 5 days. And it works.

There were live bands, DJs, car cruises, costume contests, a film festival, a post-apocalyptic swimsuit competition, Thunderdome battles, and much, much more.#2Image credits: halfcat_halfdevil”We’re going to pull out all the stops for our tenth year celebration,” Wasteland co-founder and event director Jared Butler said in a press release. “It’s amazing that we’ve been able to have this home-grown post-apocalyptic fantasy world last this long. It took a lot of hard work and dedication by our whole community and we want to celebrate that.”#3Image credits: _kushgoonThe event has sold five years in a row, and another sellout is pretty much inevitable. “Wasteland is run by a small staff and an army of volunteers. We want those volunteers to grow their skills with the event, so that our staffing and infrastructure never get overwhelmed by the size of the population,” Butler said. Wasteland Weekend art director and Chief of Operations, Adam Chilson, added: “When we grow at a reasonable pace, it means veteran attendees always outnumber the newcomers. It helps the event keep the feeling of being one big returning family.”#4Image credits: shellyroo_#5Image credits: wastelandweekend#6Image credits: x21kitsune#7Image credits: shellyroo_#8Image credits: hennessyxo#9Image credits: wasteland_warriors#10Image credits: costumed_chameleon#11Image credits: evelbunny#12Image credits: carlaxofficial#13Image credits: renogenerator#14Image credits: beth_drozda#15#16Image credits: n3rddaddy#17Image credits: wastelandweekend#18Image credits: hexenkult#19Image credits: undecidedbrain#20Image credits: missmonstermel#21Image credits: _kushgoon#22Image credits: hydraworx#23Image credits: steffegm#24Image credits: wasteland_warriors#25Image credits: mymarvelouswebsite#26Image credits: bottom_dweller_defender#27Image credits: seanmichaelphotos#28#29Image credits: thebloodbank.art#30Image credits: johnjpettinato#31Image credits: awkwardsharkie#32Image credits: deadhandart#33Image credits: costumed_chameleon#34Image credits: tximmortan#35Image credits: cool_beeans#36Image credits: hydraworx#37Image credits: andtheforestbegantosing#38Image credits: chimpinator_93#39Image credits: markcordorycreations#40Image credits: dorian.dane#41Image credits: wastelandweekend#42Image credits: i_am_tiberon#43Image credits: realjohnnybananas#44Image credits: saucylilpea#45Image credits: saucylilpea#46Image credits: taylor_duhe#47#48Image credits: redpandroid#49Image credits: wmarmory#50Image credits: mizzmoto#51Image credits: awkwardsharkie#52Image credits: hairyknucklesmotoringclub#53Image credits: shanitabump#54Image credits: felicitaart#55Image credits: hydraworx#56Image credits: handsandhead#57Image credits: wastelandweekend#58Image credits: elle.tea#59Image credits: hydraworx#60Image credits: tracylynnwithlove#61Image credits: roboshinobi#62#63Image credits: wastelandweekend
