The Best Tutus At THON 2018

Take a quick scan of the BJC concourse and you’ll notice a tutu is a prerequisite for the best THON outfits. So we set out to find the best tutus that the BJC crowd has to offer.  Some were small and some were outrageous, but they all had a common theme — a smiling face dancing For The Kids. Here’s a look at the best tutus that we found:

Dancing for the ’80s

Their shirts say “Dancing for the 8’0s” almost as much as their tutus do.  These girls weren’t messing around when it came to turning back the clock 30 years.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

What’s better than a tutu at THON? A tutu that lights up! This girl is taking on the mantra of the 2017 Line Dance by “igniting” and “electrifying” the BJC with her outfit.

A Tutu That Matches the THON Shirt

The only thing brighter than her tutu was her smile! Color coordinating at THON isn’t required, but it’s always a nice touch.

Bwine THON

This isn’t his first THON on the block.


Ohana always has a good turnout during THON weekend, especially when it comes to tutus. These girls sure look like they know what they’re doing!


Without a doubt, my favorite tutu was the one that rested on the hips of a survivor. This is why we THON.

State Spirit

This guy’s tutu takes the cake.  Not only is he completely decked out head to toe for THON Weekend, but his tutu is blue and white!

There are plenty of other tutus in attendance this weekend at the BJC, so feel free to go on the hunt to try and find your own favorite tutu.
