Dusty Chapel

Postby Cap'n Tedward » Fri Feb 10, 2012 12:20 am

I'm thinking about building a small chapel to FSM at Burningman this year. Naturally, we'll have services on Friday and maybe I'll marry a couple of people there.

I'm looking for ideas regarding setup, decoration, running Friday mass, etc. Let's hear it, what would you do for a small chapel and service?

The altar would be the table from an Italian restaurant, red check tablecloth, candle holder, couple of glasses, bottle of wine, plate of spaghetti. Beer in a 'font', maybe a punchbowl, you can bless people with a breadstick.

I would have a shrine to Vegas Elvis in my chapel, but that's probably just me...

Interesting. A graven image of His Noodliness is essential, as are the items Roy suggested. In fact, anything that screams Italian restaurant will be fine. As for the construction of the chapel itself, as long as it looks shoddy (loose morals, remember), it should be fine. Driftwood held together with those cable ties, maybe? :haha:

Personally I'd go for a large shed-like building, maybe with a pagoda style outside bit if the weather's nice round your way. Interior should have, as previously suggested, some sort of altar involving a pasta theme. There should also be a section with a fridge and table to serve as a rudimentary bar for any communion/thanksgiving/general celebration after the service :drinking:

How about some sort of driftwood shack (kinda castaway vibe) with lots of pirate regalia in it?

Okay, so, for ease of transport, and wind resistance/flow we've decided to go with a simple 'pop-up' structure for the chapel, with two stripper poles out front.
Image

behind the pulpit will be a bead curtain made out of pasta, bearing an image of the great one himself. On either side, will be banners with images of beer volcanos and the 8 "I'd rather you didn'ts"

Through the curtain, people will be able to se the central artwork of the event.

An idea truly inspired by His Noodlyness Himself - wish I could be there for the grand opening! You are going to have a grand opening, right? Eat-drink-and-be-merry-me-hearties style of thing? I think it would be great if you gave all the attendees a little badge with His likeness on it (to wear proudly at home, at work, while asleep - whatever takes their fancy). And may your endevour indeed be touched by His Noodly Appendage!

The stripper poles are essential (please post pictures of any strippers using them, all for research purposes, of course), but the curtain of pasta, bearing an image of Our Most Saucy One is excellent!

in keeping with I'd really rather you didn't #6

Temples/Mosques/Shrines To My Noodly Goodness When The Money
Could Be Better Spent (Take Your Pick):
A. Ending Poverty
B. Curing Diseases
C. Living In Peace, Loving With Passion, And LoweringThe Cost Of Cable

I would suggest keeping it as low cost as possible.. but the idea is pretty neat obviously should be nothing permanent and possible based on a captains deck design? maybe a helm as the alter? drums for seats? and a mast with a picture of his noodliness on a sail?

It got vetoed by the camp leader. Something about it interfering with their plans for that space (which also didn't come to fruition). *sigh* But I got a nice fake rasta hat and assed dome rigatoni so that at least *I* could have the look. It was a little too subtle for most people, but a few got it.

In the end, I'm kinda glad it went down that way, I had a lot more time for other projects.
