Pussy Riot is a [[collective]] formed in August 2011. They write their name as "Pussy Riot" with Latin (rather than Cyrillic) lettering. The Russian press usually follows suit, but sometimes the name is [[transliterated]] as "Пусси Райот". It comprises around 12 performers and about 15 people who handle the technical work of shooting and editing their videos, which are posted on the Internet. Their costumes are usually brightly colored dresses and [[tights]], even in bitterly cold weather, with their faces masked by [[Balaclava (clothing)|balaclavas]], both while performing and during interviews. During interviews they use [[pseudonym|nicknames]] such as "Balaclava", "Cat", "Seraph", "Terminator", and "Blondie".<ref name=NPR>{{cite web

Tolokonnikova, her husband Pyotr Verzilov, and Samutsevich were all members of the [[Anarchism and art|anarchist art]] collective "[[Voina]]" from the group's early days in 2007, until an acrimonious split in 2009.
