Delirium Trigger’s Tank Girl takes home the gold in the costume contest. The pièce de résistance came when rockets shot off from her helmet, leaving “pow” flags in their stead and confetti floating into the crowd. “You just have to work it. I have a lot of showmanship when I go onstage,” Trigger says. “I went up there with my Tank Girl persona, which isn’t really any different from my own persona.” Behind her is emcee Andrew Ward, aka The Pope, who also happens to be an ordained minister. While he has performed 127 weddings, he also has conducted quite a few life moments at the Running of the Bulls: christenings, baptisms (with sangria) and yes, a funeral.
