SFBP #51: Bunny Hop LookBook

Pull out your ears and dust off your tail, it’s time to join the herd. If you need some inspiration for a perfectly furry bunny suit, look no further.  We’ve got you covered (in Mohair!) right here!  Meet us at Justin Herman Plaza at 7:30pm on Friday, April 3rd.  We roll at 8:00. You can find our route map here and our turn guide here.  Until tonight, we’ll be keeping the warren warm for ya! Ding Ding!
