Burner De/Merit Badge GOOD SPORT


Burner De/Merit Badge, GOOD SPORT

Through the years I’ve encountered several folks that have had a heck of a time getting to and enduring what the playa provides and what the playa taketh away, they’re good sports too, this patch is for all of the good sports out their trying their best and crushing it even when everything falls apart around them.

Like when someone’s vehicle breaks down on the way to the burn, but whatever they’ll deal with it later, get the essentials out and carry on, at least they have their bike, but it gets run over at the event, even that’s okay, they have another. After a solid effort to enjoy themselves they fade into a couch in their camp because they didn’t have their shit together enough to put up just the essentials. As they fade off into blissful sleep they feel themselves getting hustled for their boots, voices trickle through saying something about protecting them, they wake up with a weird sequin reflection sunburn and they look like they’ve been attacked by a small octopus. Their period magically begins on playa and they were totally unprepared because they _just_ had their period. That same burn their long term boyfriend decides that he’s playa-polyamorous, not really cool but rolls with the punches. There’s fun to be had, friends to connect with, there’s work to do, the world may have crumbled down in their real life, but they’re at the burn, the burn is now, now is the burn. They went through some wild shit just getting there, some wild shit while at the burn and the wild shit will continue after the burn, but gosh darn it, they jumped through some flaming hoops to make the best of it, what a good sport!

It’s me, I’m the good sport! The ‘04 burn was a character building experience, and I still shined like a gem, performed at my best, and had a great time regardless. What a good sport!

Burner themed De/Merit Badges based on snarky inside jokes that have endured the test of time.

2.5" round

Everything in my shop is handmade to order by li'l ol' me in my home studio in Southern Oregon. There are some things that are easier to make in groups of 2 or more, so when someone orders one, I'll have leftovers giving me a small ready inventory, (the Burner De/Merit Badges for example). My shipping times have production times built in, however if I have it on hand, I'll ship asap. I don't actually have piles of inventory in stock =) the quantity available in each listing is there to give you an opportunity to order as many as you want.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Photos for Custom Kitters

    Once you've placed your order, please send photos of the critter in question. Etsy lets us send three images per message.

    I will send an email with instructions and some questions for what I need from you.

    Please not that the shop observes weekends, I'll communicate with you Monday through Friday, if you place an order on Saturday, don't fret, I will be in touch when I get back to the shop.

    What's the Best Material For Your Critter?

    What's the best material for your critter?

    If your kitty long or medium haired, choose the FUR option.
    If your kitty is a sort hair, please choose FLEECE.
    If your kitty is short haired and you order fur, I will use MINKY.

    Once you've sent pictures I'll either pull materials from my stash, or shop for just the right thing for your special order. I will communicate with you along the way to ensure you're getting something lovely and as you expected.

    I have an idea for a patch, how do I make that happen?

    Using the contact form, send me a message with your ideas, size, colors, font thoughts, and how many you want. Let me know if you want it to be exclusive to you, or if it's cool to put in the shop as a new listing? This effects the price some.

    Can you make this bigger or smaller, in a different color?

    Heck yeah I can. If it's just color changes, let me know in the comments at check out.

    If it's a size change, there may also be a price change, and I'll want to have a convo with you about it first. Go to the listing you'd like to have resized, and send me a message from that listing with your request. Once we get the details worked out I'll make a custom listing for you.

    Will you replicate someone elses patch for less?


    Where do you get designs?

    Some of the patches in my shop are designed by an embroidery digitizer, (that's a skill in itself), I've purchased the design (often from other Etsy sellers) and have rights to create them. Other designs are digitized from the ground up by me, I've been learning to digitize since late 2021, and I have a lot to learn yet. I will also purchase embroidery files of specific elements to make compositions to save time, or because the other digitizer has more skill and experience than I do in with that kind of work.
