Before the Temple burned on the final day of this year’s Octoburn in Second Life, the Fire Dancers danced. This was one of the best Fire Dancer performances I’ve seen. The dancers in these photos are: Allellia, Elyen Zlatkes, iSkye Silvercloud, Maia Antara, Suzie, Teddy Bear, and Yanaba Maddock.
After doing the procession to the Temple, Lamplighters dance at the Temple all night to bring up the sun in the morning. In this picture, the sun has risen and Lamplighters are still doing their fiery dance in front of the Temple.
Lamplighters were setting up camp at Burn 2 and decided to drive their truck Lucy around the Playa. You can watch a light-hearted machinima of another ride in Lucy around the Burn 2 Playa at www.youtube.com/watch?v=31lWo5-1o4M
