20. We're not entirely sure what's going on here, but this delights us for two main reasons. One, he's channeling Mary Poppins, aka the Gay Patron Saint of San Francisco.

18. Timely and intricate Day of the Dead themed machine and crew.

17. Wonder Woman? Wrestler? Dragon Slayer? ALL OF THE ABOVE!
