Welcome to My Disco Treasure Trove

Welcome to My Disco Treasure Trove

Hey there, hot stuff. Come here often? Like what you see? Wanna take a trip to my secret treasure trove? Well, actually we're already here. Welcome. I'm Mother Disco, the captain of this groovy disco-covered space ship, and no, I have no idea where this ship is headed - but you know what they say...it's not about the destination, it's about the friends you make along the way! (...or something like that.)

Now that I've got your attention, I'm here to answer the questions no one is asking, like...

Mother Disco? Where'd you come up with a name like that?

So glad you asked - the name came to me like a bolt of lightning on the dusty playa during the Renegade Burn in 2021. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Burning Man culture, many people while out on the playa (what burners call the dusty desert) will give themselves a "playa name" which is what they prefer to be called while at burning man. In the spirit of the burn, the name Mother Disco come to me like a blessing from the playa goddess herself, and the rest is history. I am now Mother Disco. Like mother nature, but of disco.

Why disco balls?

Um...why not? I'm basically the giant crab from Moana..."SHINYYYYYY"

When did this obsession start?

Some would say when I left the womb...but my first project was my disco beret. My friends in San Francisco were (and still are) super involved in the festival scene and always have such amazing outfits, so really their creativity and love of fashion inspired me to start creating. My next piece was my disco sunnies...which were STOLEN at a concert. *sobs* So if you see someone with the perfect pair of cat eye disco sunnies, tell them first of all frick you, and secondly...thank you. Because if it weren't for them being stolen, I never would have made a second pair...and a third...and fourth...and fifth...

Why have your own website? Isn't Etsy enough?

Well I'm so glad you asked! It's a tough world out there for a small businesses, and Etsy just keeps on creeeeeeping up their fees. It was just after this last fee hike in April 2022 that I decided enough was enough, and I wanted to be in complete control of my art. And so motherdisco.com was born in all her glory.

What can I expect from this blog?

Great question; I have no idea. My BA is actually in journalism and communications, and it wasn't until I sat down to write this blog that I remembered how much I actually love writing and telling stories. I'm thinking this blog will be a dash of how-to's, with a sprinkle of festival OOTD's, maybe even an interview here and there. Might as well put all my student editor & news anchor experience to good use, 'eigh?

Do you actually like disco music?

I'm more of a fan of the shiny disco balls, but mix it with a house n techno track and I'm diggity-down.

What is your biggest dream?

To have all my friends decked out in mother disco, dancing till the sun comes up. And to get Paris Hilton to wear a pair of my sunnies. #sliving

What is your favorite disco treasure?

My DISCO BIKE. She is my crowning glory. My greatest achievement. My labor of love. She was completed in approximately 40 hours to the tune of all 7 seasons of True Blood. She made her debut on the playa last year and prompted the naming of Mother Disco. In second place would be my Fringed wide brim disco hat. I consider that my literal crown.


Disco Bike & Fringed hat in all it's glory. Peep the disco bike horn and old school disco light, disco Doc Martens, disco dust mask and disco sunnies.

Got any other questions you'd like me to answer? Wondering what my next creative project is? Leave a comment below and maybe I'll answer it...or maybe not. Who knows?

Till next time,

Xo, Mother Disco
