"There's a really wide variety of [mask] materials, which is why it's going to be an interesting show," says Polarity Twins co-founder Colby Bemis. "People have worked with everything: metal, denim, wax, tree branches, feathers. I even have a girl who made hers out of little Formica sheets.
"A couple of the designers are modeling their masks themselves," she adds. "Marika Evanger designed a huge, awesome peacock mask and will be wearing it in the show." The other mask-makers include artists who specialize in hair, graphic design, music, silk-screens and fabric basically, just about every medium known to man.
And since costumes or formal attire are requested, you'll have a chance to indulge in everyone's favorite part of the horrifying holiday: dressing up.
The Oriental is at 4335 West 44th Avenue, and the show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door; for details, call 303-455-2124 or visit www.theorientaltheater.com.
