Designed by Neil Ward of Medusa's Salon.
This mask was designed by Rebekah Collier, Olivia Barker, Amanda Delp, Miranda Roberts, Taylor Ford, and Mary Edwards of Honey Creek Great Clips.
Lindsey Whitman designed this mask for Terre Haute South High School's Link Crew. The rainbow colors represent the mingling of all grades, as Link Crew is known for upperclassmen helping underclassmen find their way around school. The chain across the bottom represents the student body "linking" together for the good of the school.
Emily Murray designed this mask with meaning for CODA and for her personally. The color purple represents courage, survival and dedication to end domestic violence. She wanted her mask to be beautiful and positive, so she covered it in positive affirmations, designed to inspire women and men in all walks of life to love and encourage themselves and others.
Designed by Lindsay Cundiff of Union Hospital's Intensive Care Unit.
Priscilla Liu, Sara Hoggat, Elishba Rizwan, Mallory Gosset, and Azriel Manalaysay of the Terre Haute South High School STAND Club added facts about current genocides and major conflict zones to their mask. The bells are to help make noise and draw attention. The use of orange evokes the original STAND shirt created 10 years ago. The brown reflects deserts and camels, since the camel is the STAND Club mascot to represent Darfur.
Designed by FSA Counseling Center.
Tammy King and Lesley Rowe found inspiration for their mask from CODA’s new Galentine’s Day event, coming in February. We will celebrate the unbreakable spirit of women with a day of pampering, shopping, education, and above all, friendship. There will even be a craft booth where you can make your mask for next year’s Monte Carlo Masquerade. So grab your best friend and attend CODA’s 1st annual Galentine’s Day!
Saayeh Siahmakoun of the Terre Haute South High School Key Club created this mask. Key Club's mission is to help students learn how to stand for what’s right through service and volunteerism, so this project fit right in.
The inspiration for Cheryl White's mask is her favorite team, the Duke Blue Devils. She encourages her Duke friends to make a donation! Or, if you're not feeling the Duke love, feel free to donate to one of the other masks to try to keep this one from winning!
