Wabisabi Moab will provide odds and ends at the free event to help people create their fully upcycled outfits. “Bring your stockpiled recyclables and miscellaneous items to use in your costume or to share and swap with others to use on their creative costumes. Ideas include twist ties from groceries, clean candy wrappers, bubble wrap, shiny wrapping paper saved from the holidays, etc. Be inspired by the abundant materials and turn ‘trash’ into Trashion!” said a press release from the Resiliency Hub.
The event will be held at the MARC in the downstairs kitchen workshop space.
The Trashion Show will be held Feb. 23 at 8 p.m. at Woody’s Tavern. Organizers encourage people to dress in their best upcycled costumes for the Trashion Show, Moab’s annual dance party and Trashion Fashion runway. “Come to the Trashion Show adorned in your finest upcycled outfits. Music by local DJ’s and the Fiery Furnace Marching Band will keep you danceing all night while admiring all the creative trashion fashion statements,” said the press release. “Throughout the evening, the three Trashion judges will mingle in the crowd selecting their favorite costumes in the categories of ‘Trashiest,’ ‘Classiest’ and ‘Sassiest.’ Nine people will be chosen to participate in the runway. The judges will select their top three winners.
New this year, bonus points will be given for anyone using items that are currently non-recyclable in Moab, such as #1 clam shell plastic, #2 colored plastic, #3-7 plastics, mixed paper, and newspaper.
The newly created Ubuntu Blox press will be on site for all to try. All event waste will be pressed to make building blocks for sustainable building projects.
Attendees must be 21 or older and the cost is $10 at the door. Proceeds benefit the Resiliency Hub. “Have fun, be creative, and live the low-impact lifestyle,” said organizers. Contact email@example.com for more information.
