OK, Bay to Breakers is finally here!  (Well, on Sunday.  But when you’ve been looking forward to it for the past year, a few days is nothing).  My pals and I finally decided on costumes and I mostly have gotten it all together.  The theme has changed from roller derby to roller disco (not an earth-shattering change, but this theme we decided is more fun. Apparently more fun=more sequins).  Here’s a rundown of what I have:

1.  Burgundy short-shorts with white piping from American Apparel

2.  Sequined gold cropped tube-top purchased at Aardvark’s on Haight Street

3.  Knee-high yellow and burgundy striped athletic socks from American Apparel

4.  Vintage red-white-and-blue roller skates purchased on eBay

5.  White Elton John-esque sunglasses from Evangeline’s in Sacramento

6.  Gold multi-strand necklace from So Good on Haight Street

7.  Black shiny track jacket with yellow stripes bought at Wasteland on Haight Street

I’m still thinking about getting some striped terrycloth wristbands at American Apparel and I’m planning on doing my makeup with bright powder blue eyeshadow and frosted lip gloss, with lots and lots of bronzer.  My hair I’m still figuring out–I was looking for a Farrah Fawcett-like wig, because short hair doesn’t lend itself well to lots of experimental hairstyles, but the wigs I’ve found were sort of sub-par.  And my friend Alison is already wearing an afro wig, so I don’t really want to do the same thing.  Last night my roommate Jenny styled my hair in a really cool feathered-back style that kind of works, so I’ll probably go with that.  

I’m so excited!  I will be sure to post lots of pictures of all the debauchery.  And this year I’ll be sure not to drink so much Jameson so that I might actually remember everything to write about it.
