100th Annual Bay To Breakers

It was the 100th Anniversary of the infamous Bay to Breakers-- you better believe that we had plans to brave the predicted hail, rain and thunderstorms in our insect costumes to participate! Luckily for us, the weather people are always wrong and the day turned out to be beautiful!

For those who are unfamiliar with the Bay to Breakers, it is a 7 mile run that takes place from downtown San Francisco to somewhere by the beach. What sets this run aside is that traditionally, people dress(or undress) up in all sorts of crazies!

I woke up at 5:45 AM to check the status of the weather and was greeted pleasantly by a stormless day! Excitedly, I went home, dolled up and was ready to party. Mr. W., on the other hand, didn't dress up at all-- in fact, he didn't even bother to shave! Party pooper!

Unlike us girls, Mr.W. wasn't too keen on dressing up!
We decided to stick to a insect them! Eva as a bumblebee, Denise as a ladybug, Aimee and I as butterflies!
The Bay to Breakers also marked the beginning of the tutu making season! For my butterfly outfit, I chose to go with a blue, black and gray tutu. The color choice is very not me but matches the wings perfectly!

An hour of hard work!
It was 9AM and we were buzzin' (no pun intended!) and ready to go!

Flutter flutter!
There were so many people dressed up in crazy costumes but it was the nudies that had us in disbelieve. Of course we've always heard of all the nudists that comes out during b2b but seeing a grown man completely NUDE except for a mink coat is too much for me!

Here are some of the more memorable outfits of the day!
I like big butts and I cannot lie!
Gingerbread Man
Mr.W. and his butterfly princess!
See some NSFW pictures afte the jump!

This man was completely in the nude. I'm not going to post a full frontal pic but believe me when I say that he got ballsy and stripped down to this semi-bondage get up!

He wasn't the only one in the nude but I felt like his outfit was the most suggestive! It's crazy because he looks like just another other guy! But I guess that's us San Franciscans for you-- free spirited!

The Bay to Breakers is definitely an experience every San Franciscan should experience! Next year, I'm definitely going to try to make the run!
