OFFCenter Folk Art Festival, 2016 | Part FOUR

A costume is a device that contains and delivers information. It isn’t a stretch, therefore, to realize that costumes are among humans’ oldest forms of social media. Moreover, a costume parade is an exciting form of mass media.  Costumes provide a great platform to interact with friends, family and strangers. Costumes are a regenerative, analogue social experience. When is the last time you wore a costume?

In today’s post, I am continuing to share my favorite views of costumes seen at the 14th Annual OFFCenter Folk Art Festival held in Robinson Park {at 8th + Central} in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico on September 11, 2016.   What unifies these costumes, is that they were shared, or worn in harmony, with two or more persons.  These are costumes for a “WE.”
