Costuming in Seattle

(An Historical Costuming Club)

16_Mask-Making Workshop-Invitation

SITU University Presents:

Masks:  Mysterious and Magical

Masks conceal.  Masks tease and tantalize, obscure and reveal.

Batman, Dread Pirate Roberts, the Lone Ranger and Zorro.  All these larger than life characters hid their real identity with a mask.

Carnivale is that time of year when masquerading and disguising oneself is at its glitziest and most alluring.

Who… or what… do you want to metamorphose into?

Come to SITU University’s Mask Making Workshop to create your own masterpiece and transform yourself into anything or anyone you want to be.

Sexy or scary.  Glamorous or grotesque.  You decide what you will become.
