CRITICAL MASCARA “A POST-REALNESS EXTRAVAGANZA” 2015
SEPT 12th at THE WORKS at THE REDD 831 SE SALMON 10pm til LATE

CRITICAL MASCARA IS BACK for it’s 3rd year in a row at PICA’s Time Based Arts Festival!

Critical Mascara: A Post-Realness Drag Extravaganza is a competition celebrating community and creativity. Inspired by the legacy of vogue balls, house culture, and irreverent activism, Critical Mascara is an expression of the new wave of queer liberation aesthetics. Hosted by Pepper Pepper, Critical Mascara is a showcase of regional talent, a competition engaging local artists, and one hell of a party, Critical Mascara is glamour in action.

HOW IT WORKS:

READ THE CATEGORIES, GET INSPIRED, ASK YOU FRIENDS, MAKE A LOOK AND GET READY TO PRANCE!

ALL GENDERS AND GENRES ENCOURAGED TO APPLY! YOUTH 18-20 WITH RESTRICTION.

CATEGORIES ARE:

FAUX/REAL FEMME - All Drag is Faux Drag, Faux Drag is Real! This category is for all those who want to explore their feminine glamour and their conceptual performance of highest femme. Trash to treasure, country to corset, you choose your lady adventure. Can you be so fake you’re beyond fake? Can you shine like a drag diva?

POWER WORD: PROTEST! - Express righteous anger for your cause. Air your grievances creatively. Pissed off about rent? C’mon picket line! Pop your top with vigilant words, text, signs, costume and chants. The personal is political, the political is FABULOUS! Don't just stand on your soap box, WEAR IT!

CLOWNS 1ST TIME ON THE RUNWAY - Honk Honk! This category is for the nascent clowns/queers/weirdos looking to show off their look at an international arts extravaganza. For the new creature on the block wanting to have a great time show some face, stand up stand out and be fabulous! ALMOST ANYTHING GOES!

VOGUE - Dance, wack, vogue, twirl. This explains itself. We are gonna see you sweat, prance, dance, and live.
