Highland Brewing Company transformed into Toon Town for the annual Fashion Victim's Ball. Presented by Keller Williams and Highland, about 900 attendees took over the brewery’s tasting room dressed as comic book heroes and villains, Saturday morning cartoon characters, movie stars, purveyors of tacky holiday sweaters, and all around anti-style style. (Just check out the smashing set of sisters and sassy sidekick in their 90s windsuit fineries above.)
The event was created in 2002 as a way for Keller Williams agents to raise money for local nonprofit organizations. When a ticket was purchased, the buyer chose a local charity to benefit.
Sponsors included Goosmann, Rose, Colvard and Cramer Law Firm; Osborne Construction; Movement Mortgage; 2-10 Home Warranty; Affordable Inspections; Keller Williams Professionals; and Homes and Land Magazine.

No joke, even the bad guys got down at the party.

Every girl has tried to get her man to try a couples costume and it worked for all these guys. (above and below)

Yabba dabba doo!

On Thing 2, Thing 1 confided, "Bitch stole my look!"
