SpinTO was a hell of a party. It a lot of fun hanging out with friends, drinking and dancing. The night also raised $15,000 for Toronto People with AIDS Foundation. Hurrah!

The night didn't start with the wig, but it ended with one - SpinTO May 15, 2009 by Say Yeah

First off my SpinTO outfit. It was a pain in the ass to figure it out. At first I had the idea of gold, going with the Solid Gold theme. I had some items from American Apparel all picked out thanks to The Oracle, but decided against it. American Apparel gold lame really makes me ill. I needed something else.

Dancing with my inspiration - SpinTO May 15, 2009 by Say Yeah

I didn’t have time to vintage shop and my choices for a good gold costume were dwindling. I finally talked to my friend Jaime Woo and he said he was going in a speedo. It snapped, the inspiration: I’m gonna wear a swimsuit.

BFF - SpinTO May 15, 2009 by Rannie Turingan

There were a bunch of incarnations of the swimsuit based outfit: the swimsuit and booty short combo; swimsuit and sarong combo; the swimsuit alone. The swimsuit is Matthew Williamson from H&M. I also bought the leggings at the same time. The intention wasn’t to wear them together, but as I was getting ready the idea popped in my head.

Loved, loved, loved the boys in Drag. The makeup on the left is perfect - SpinTO May 15, 2009 by Rannie Turingan

There wasn’t many people dressed up for the party, so when I walked in the door of the Mod Club it was a shock. Oh well, I said to myself, this isn’t the first time I’ve made a spectacle of myself. Lets do this. However, there were some people who dressed up and I loved them for it.

We also love Bad Luck Boys - SpinTO May 15, 2009 by Rannie Turingan

The night was debauchery with lots of drinking, de-panting and hookups. I managed to wrangle a wig at the end of the night. Oh, wait till next year! You can see more photos from SpinTO at the flickr SpinTO pool and Rannie Turingan.

The party is over and $15,000 was raised for the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation. It’s a great start, but the fundraising hasn’t stopped. Head on over to SpinTO.ca and donate. Fundraising goes until race day

  1. It was indeed upsetting that not many people actually dressed up. However, the ones who did went all out and looked fantastic. Rannie Turingan is a great photographer but that picture that keeps surfacing of me from the event was not the best one. This one was: http://twitpic.com/5h6v7
    Of course geekigirl was the best dressed and the life of the party ripping the pants and hair off of all the men around her.
