One Year Later - At the Temple for Costume Conspirator

It's hard to believe it's been an entire year since Costume Conspirator passed away after a long battle with cancer. I think about her often. How much she would have enjoyed new crazy schemes, how we would have figured out together how to fix my shorter hair into a Victorian hairstyle, how she would decorate her little dog, how good it would be to have her career advice again.


Our dear friend Madame A made these beautiful memorials out of her collection of photographs, a letter she wrote, a few of my blog posts, and fabric scraps from the costumes we made. She and D took them to the Temple of Flux at Burning Man, an amazing structure created in the desert each year where people leave memorials, write messages of grief, peace, and forgiveness, and then is burned to the ground.

Rest in Peace, CC.

I had not heard of the "Temple of Flux" before; I like the idea. I'm glad she had a memorial there. Rest in peace. -WwW

We all miss her. A good memorial in cleansing one's sorrow.

The Temple of Flux is a such a cool idea.

I've been missing her a lot lately. Can't believe it's been a year.

I had not heard of the Temple of Flux before, either. But it sounds like a fabulous way to memorialize someone.

Thanks for your help putting the memorial together! Still seems unreal she is gone.
