10. Ballerina Bassers Hometown: Pompano. Ultra: Their first. Most excited to see: Fat Boy Slim.

When you were getting dressed today, what made you put on the tutus? It actually takes weeks of preparation. We just wanted to incorporate as many colors that we could find. Pretty much anything goes. We've been going to these things for a while. So the first time we came, we really didn't dress up, until we saw how everyone was dressed. It's just: Express yourself.

Do you feel emasculated in your tutu, or more masculine in it? The weirder the shit I wear, the more I get hit on. So, no. My footsie pajamas -- it's ridiculous.

Tip: Dudes, if you want some ass, wear a tutu.

9. Star Spangled Basser Hometown: New Jersey. Ultra: She came last year and dressed up both times. Most excited to see: Tiësto, Kaskade, Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia. Boots: Bought them at I Heart Rave.

What inspired your style? Just the vibe. It's so free. I just love it.

Favorite look here besides your own? Just a lot of jewels, sparkles, colors.

Tip: You can be appropriately patriotic in public, even outside of a Nascar event.
