Bay to Breakers: Drunken Cosplay at its finest

Once a year in the good city of San Francisco, the main streets shut down and surrender themselves to throngs of residents for the epic Bay to Breakers marathon. While the brave few run the track from the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean, the many walk behind in greater numbers to follow a course of costume wearing, debauchery, and general dancing in the streets.

While the event itself is by far one of the best West coast holidays of the year, stumbling across drunken videogame cosplays yesterday amidst the brilliant chaos was the frosting on the cake. Mario Kart seemed to be the cosplay of choice amidst many attendees, but the Donkey Kong float that doubled as a traveling beer keg certainly wins the prize, in my opinion.

Take a look at the gallery to see a dancing NES controller, some promenading Katamari folks, and other cosplays to make you wish you were there. I also heard a rumor that Dyson was dressed up like Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes, so please post any photos in the comments that may confirm this phenomenon.
