    Posted: December/09/2011 at 7:48pm
Here are the official announcements for Moddities 2012 (formerly known as Skindependence). Find us on Facebook too @ http://www.facebook.com/modditiesevent.

Last updated on JUNE 29th, 2012 (MEET AND GREET INFO). Please continue to look at this space for updates.

July 13th, 14th, and 15th

    Moddities will be held in Denver, Colorado at the 910 Event Art Gallery (910 Sante Fe Drive, Denver CO 80204, www.910arts.com ). This is seriously a beautiful little space! It seems secluded from the outside but once you step through the gates it's a like an awesome paradise! There is an outdoor space for hanging out or other shenanigans just out front of the indoor space and it's mostly closed off from the street for privacy. The indoor space is comfortable and spacious with tall ceilings and a separate space for the working artists, also has a full bar (alcohol for 21+ only), kitchen (byof), and bathrooms. Right next door, connected to the event space is a coffee house (open from 7am to 7pm) and there are also places for eating or more all around the venue. The space is also home to working artists and you can go to the other side of the building and view what the artists are doing or even become involved in an art class. It's really nifty. (Don't worry, they do not have access to the venue) :)
   910 Event Art Gallery is right in the Denver Art District on Santa Fe (north east corner of 9th and Santa Fe) and is easily accessible. It's a really cool area with plenty to do!

    The event is not open to the general public, but the public can attend if they happen to show up. It is a private event for bodymod.org members and their friends. You will be required to sign up for a bmod account on site if you're not already a member.

Thursday Evening - Meet and Greet (El Noa Noa from 6:30pm to 9pm)
    - The meet and greet will be taking place at the El Noa Noa Mexican Restaurant on 7th & Santa Fe, two blocks south of the ModD venue. The have tasty food, an inexpensive menu, vegetarian options and alcohol. We have the back of the outdoor patio from 6:30 to 9/10pm. It will be tons of fun. :)
Friday - 2pm to 12am @ 910 Event Gallery: Suspensions, body art, shenanigans, and more!
Saturday - 2pm to 12am @ 910 Event Gallery: Suspensions, body art, shenanigans, and more!
Sunday - 12pm to 6pm @ 910 Event Gallery: BBQ, suspensions and hanging out times!

Hotels and Other Housing Accommodations
    Three hotel rooms that can accommodate three to four people each will be provided Thursday night to Sunday night (check out is at 12pm on Monday morning). It is $20-$30 a day for each person who decides to stay in a hotel room.  I may be able to provide more depending on the demand. There are hotels located close by the venue and are inexpensive if you choose to do it on your own. You will need to let me know ahead of time if you wish to use my home or a hotel room that I have provided. I am willing to help anyone out who needs it, no worries. :)
    There are MANY inexpensive hotels and other lodging close-by and around the area of the venue, my house, and in Denver in general. I can help you locate hotels and such if you need it, just drop me a line. :)
Hotels Near the Venue
     11th Ave hotel & Hostel: http://www.11thavenuehotelandhostel.com
     Broadway Plaza Motel: 1111 Broadway, Denver CO 80203 (Mapquest states that this is a 3 minute drive and only .84 miles from the venue. Probably about a 15 to 20 minute walk.)
     Hilton Garden Inn: 1400 Welton St, Denver CO 80202 (Mapquest states that this is a 5 minute drive and only 1.49 miles from the venue)
     Crowne Plaza Denver: 1459 Glenarm Pl, Denver CO 80202 (Mapquest states that this is a 4 minute drive and only 1.26 miles from the venue.)
     Sheraton Denver: 1550 Court Pl, Denver CO 80202 (Mapquest states that this is a 5 minute drive and only 1.81 miles from the venue).

**The two hotels that are closest are the 11th Ave Hotel & Hostel, and the Broadway Plaza Motel. The 11th Ave Hotel has super reasonable rates and if you guys share a room it becomes pretty inexpensive. Four in one room comes out to around $20 to $25 a night. The phone number is 303.894.0529 and their website is http://www.11thavenuehotelandhostel.com. The gentleman at the counter said it is cheaper to book over the phone.

Walking from the hotel to the venue? Here are the directions:
-Head south on Broadway to 9th Ave.
-Go right on 9th Ave to Bannock.
-Go left on Bannock to the light (Speer Blvd).
-Cross Speer, and go over the bridge to the park.
-Go right on park path to the fork in the path, then left/forward to the street (Delaware & 9th). It's easy to figure out and makes sense once there.
-Follow 9th Ave to Santa Fe, then right on Santa Fe.
-910 Event Gallery is there just as you turn the corner (9th & Santa Fe). You'll see a Skully banner.

Estimated Walk Time: 15 to 20 minutes

   910 Event Gallery is on the NE corner of 9th and Santa Fe, just off of HWY 6 and I-25. Address: 910 Santa Fe Drive, Denver CO 80204

We will be offering all work again this year including but not limited to suspensions, tattooing, piercing, and scarification.

***The artists have been determined. If you are an artist attending and decide to do work on someone, it will have to be done at the venue (all you have to do is ask in advance please). If work is being done outside of the venue during the event, it will be reported to the city and will also result in being banned from attending Moddities in the future. No excuses.

    Our suspensions will be provided by Big Mike (bmod user - bigmikeHOOKED) of HOOKED Suspension Team this year. It is Mike's goal to bring you a unique and unforgettable suspension experience.

-HOOKED Suspension Team on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/HOOKED-Suspension-Team/246539896594

-Mike on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=100000004828093
-Mike on BMOD profile "bigmikeHOOKED": http://www.bodymod.org/profiles/profile.aspx?ID=179631
     $35 for flesh pulls, $60 for up to four suspension hooks, $80 for six or more suspension hooks for any positions. All positions will be available. Hooks will not be available for keeping this year, but Mike has something special planned for those who do want a suspension memento (it's a surprise, so do not ask!!). If you have any suspension questions, let Mike know! If you'd like to be put on this list, drop one of us a line! :D

~Official Suspension List (14)
(please message Cale or Mike to be put on the list)

     randy flagg
     Syndey Layne

    Tattooing to be determined.


    Little ol me, Miss Cale, will be doing the piercings again this year! I provide standard to advanced piercing, anchors, genital work, and large gauge. I will also be doing corsets again, free of charge (tips are appreciated) and my availability is already limited with the corsets so please book ahead of time with me!

-See Miss Cale's Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/piercingbymisscale
-See Miss Cale's BMOD profile "Cale": http://www.bodymod.org/profiles/profile.aspx?ID=18971


    Looking to get something out of the ordinary? We are bringing on a kind modifier and bmod member to the artist list, Adam Richins (BMOD user AdamRichins)! Providing an array of advanced work from scarification to implants, Adam will take care of you. (please keep in mind that branding cannot be done at the venue this year) He can also do piercing if you're interested. It's important to book with him ahead of time before availability runs out!
-See Adam on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pierceradam


Who will attend??
    You do not have to be on this list to attend. You can just show up if you'd like without saying anything at all! This will just help us generalize how many attendees plus friends will attend, so we can figure out the meet and greet restaurant, as well as how much food we will need to provide and more!
