About Angelina Blasich
My name is Angelina Blasich; I am the co-founder and Chief Ridiculator of Purposefully Ridiculous. We are on a mission to spread joy and promote healing through shared acts of purposeful and inspired absurdity. We come to make art out of this moment and reach across perceived boundaries.

Purposefully Inclusive of every age, gender, race, economic status, presentation, and ability, we invite everyone we encounter to play along. We provide light-hearted encouragement to move from a space of assumption, fear, and judgement toward active participation in the Purposefully Ridiculous. We invite you to scroll through the hundreds of photos on Facebook: Purposefully Ridiculous on Facebook; Instagram: Purposefully Ridiculous on Instagram; and Twitter: Purposefully Ridiculous @livewhimsy on Twitter. In the past 3 years, almost 3000 people have taken this tutued journey with us, and we are deeply grateful!
Thank you for taking risks and pushing your boundaries, for looking foolish,
and making way for others to experience themselves differently than they ever have before.
Thank you for making the choice to celebrate awesome together.
Look what we have created so far!
Great Googily Moogily, you are awesome!
Let me tell you about some of our Purposefully Ridiculous Programming
- Ridiculous Calls to Public Action: (Pop-up gifts of interactive art) Bands of volunteer ridiculators answer the call and take to public spaces with parades of tutued silliness, movement, art supplies, and music, magically engaging strangers-no-more with their own deepest freedoms. We are on a mission to tulle to world and wrap it in ridiculous.
- Art: Artists make art and Purposefully Ridiculous artists make art with the purpose of supporting colorful, unapologetic self expression. Arting is expensive.
- MoonPack Project: (Free to shelters, food banks, and individuals in need) We collect women's hygiene and comfort products to provide menstrual options for homeless and under-resourced women. Each MoonPack contains tampons, pads, wipes, cocoa/cider, chocolate, and snacks. MoonPack collections are ongoing with multiple drop off sites in two counties.
- Ridiculous Social Media Moral Support: We are continuously reaching out to support the mental and emotional health of our community, and providing a touchstone for silliness in times of sorrow. We utilize social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and have established Www.PurposefullyRidiculous.com. With your support, we look forward to hiring professional help for our beloved website: adding music, videos, scrolling photo albums, as well as links to events and Ridiculous Calls to Action.

Purposefully Ridiculous offers trauma and special needs informed programming.
Ridiculate /rəˈdi kyə lāt/ verb: 1. Share joy by engaging others in purposeful, communal acts of silliness. Often involves tutus, music, and dancing. May elicit sensations of inner freedom and outer euphoria. 2. Seek consent to affix colorful fabric (or other such nonsense) onto a stranger, thereby elevating their outfit to a realm of ridiculous on purpose.
Ridiculator noun: 1: Super heros who instigate, incite, and facilitate purposeful acts of shared joy and creative expression; 2. Ambassadors of sacred silliness who foster space for, public creation of, and engagement with art and shared whimsy. (The network of professional and volunteer Ridiculators, providing ridiculous as needed, are referred to as the PRN.)
Moral of the story: We need more tutus!
