As with many other Kostume Kult events, as we weave art with culture and controversial topics like religion, we have received interesting reactions. As an edgy group, we entertain shock value but also explore multiple levels of artistic meaning as diverse people explore different angles on the theme, a variety of costume/art options and their own hilarious/theatrical “shticks.” Easter is a complex topic that was co-opted by Christianity from preceding pagan faiths with our hallmark-holiday culture later wrapping it in bunnies and candy in a mélange of intermixed imagery. As a more pagan-ish event, Horned Ball 3 co-opts easter back for its own twisted ends and a good time will be had by all. Yes, we are a Burning Man theme camp fundraising for the playa, but we are also NYers, and New York has a long tradition of edginess and twisting cultural and religious symbols for artistic ends. Participants beware. Bring your edge or stay at home. This ain’t Kansas… Don your horns and RISE to the occasion. Springtime is here--Be reborn in YOUR image.
