Pick of the Pix from the Mercury Costume Booth

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Mon, Aug 18, 2008 at 12:55 PM

Man, I miss the weekend. Saturday was pure fun in the oven. A sweltering 100 degrees was the perfect temperature for dressing up in leather pants and spandex and going for a bike ride and thus some Mercury staff spent all day at Tour de Fat, New Belgium beer's annual costumed bike ride at the Waterfront. Our booth offered a pile of free thrift store clothes for those feeling under-dressed next to the Sprockettes and leopard-print unitard clad citizenry.

Eight grueling hours of costume design resulted in some gems.

A March Fourth member was the first and only person to brave the mullet wig.

This poor Australian tourist didn't realize the booth staffers were paid in beer.

And finally, someone checks out the Mercury's free booby pins:
