The most outrageous fashion spotted at Burning Man 2016

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...

Some 70,000 people ventured to Nevada's Black Rock Desert for this year's Burning Man festival, which ended September 5.

And they certainly did it in style.

Burning Man fashion often looks like characters from "Mad Max" meet those from "Star Wars." Many Burners this year sported things like rainbow goggles, neon shorts, and unicorn horns — that is, if they didn't go naked.

Here are a few of the most outlandish outfits spotted at Burning Man 2016.

At Burning Man, attendees eschew social norms and often wear their craziest costumes.

Many Burners express themselves through fashion. Here's one participant with a mohawk, knee-length buckled boots, a fanny pack, reflective sunglasses, and a bikini.

Others upped their level of protection with gas masks ...

Odes to unicorns were also popular in Burning Man fashion.

Some who weren't covered in fur opted for bejeweled jackets instead.

Burners who wanted even more height brought stilts (and pants long enough to cover them).

This woman donned a flower crown with a skull attached.

At night, the playa lit up with Burners' glow-in-the-dark and LED-decorated garb.

The festival's fashion was an art form in itself.
