Balls to the walls: kilt-blowing at GalaxyFest

Posted By on Tue, Feb 28, 2012 at 7:06 AM

With freelancer Bret Wright taking the literary route to recapping some of GalaxyFest (see Wright's preview here), Matthew Schniper and I were more visually inspired, especially as we had arrived around 10 on Saturday night to take in the kilt blowing, um, event.

The crowd-pleaser was exactly what it sounds like: To thundering '80s music hits, women with electric leaf blowers attempt to get the lucky man's kilt to blow up, exposing some of his nether bits. Some of the participants thankfully hold down parts of the kilt that were blowing high and some ... don't. (Let's just say this is relevant.)

Anyway, we start with a few shots of the soldierly souls that had braved the long day, and then a few from the night's end.

Does this look like the face of a man who will later have hot air blown up his skirt?

The most covered this steampunk Scottish Klingon would be for the next five minutes.

Its a question of angles and nozzle placement, you see.

Dont forget to work the crowd while youre getting blown.

Joyful horror: that about sums up the event.
