"Best $2k I Ever Spent!" Santacon 2009

As if you could have possibly failed to notice, Santacon was a raging success last Saturday. The event was so big this year that they had to start in five different places! However, as a Santa traditionalist, I was a bit disappointed in some of the variations on the "Santa theme". For instance...


Will some astute commenter please explain what the hell this is?

John Lennon and....Beaker from The Muppets? Is that right? Why does John Lennon have a monkey? Why does Beaker have one enormous hand?

Dear Santa, I think I speak for women everywhere when I ask, is there a return policy on this?

I wonder which of these two grown women turned to the other and said "You know what would be GREAT? Instead of dressing up like Santa at Santacon this year, we should dress up as FOUR year olds! hahaha!"

Anyway. Lots more where those came from in our gallery, but in the meantime, let's celebrate the people who joyfully captured the TRUE spirit of Santacon.
