NEVERLAND EVENTS 2016
NEVERLAND presents: Animal Farm
Prepare for a dark and dirty fantasy set at the stroke of midnight in an old barn, where a story will unfold not about animals, but about the animal inside each of us. Neverland brings to life the Orwell classic "Animal Farm" with leather, steel and harnesses, and the costumed fetishism of horses, pigs, dogs, and other animals. DJ SERVING OVAHNESS (Los Angeles) leads the adventure, built by the imaginations of some of Chicago's most talented costume designers, set designers and artists.
Hosted by Nico and Imp Queens
Set Design by Mike Rubino and Timmie Foley

Get your t-shirt clips and spandex, your scrunchies and shoulder pads, and get in on a gnarly good time. All costumes welcome.
