For those of you who love to have fun, this is the event for you. It will be held on Sunday, 13th January 2019 from 1.00 pm until 4.00 pm at Central Station, Ann St, Brisbane. Many of us love a good laugh as well as having great fun and this event is for people who do not take themselves too seriously!
The idea behind No Pants is actually quite simple: random passengers get on a train carriage at separate stops in the middle of winter in Europe without pants. Because it is in January, it will be summer here and the participants all act as if they do not know each other. In the US and Europe, they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.
Do you want to make an impact on the ride but you are not sure what to wear as an extra with your outfit? Here are some suggestions for the top half of your body:
Bright construction clothes
Motorbike rider clothes
Defence Force clothes
Or if you want to add some articles to your clothes, here are some suggestions:
Briefcase (goes well with the business suit)
False pregnancy belly
Remember, the basic idea of this is to ride the trains without pants and pretend that it is a very normal and regular thing to do. Some people will, of course, think you are quite crazy, however, that is part of the fun. And then when more and more people enter the train without pants on, their reactions will be priceless!
If you want to join in but are a bit shy, uncomfortable or nervous about wearing underwear on the train, wear some boxers. However, if you are a bit more daring, put on a pair of boyshorts, boy legs or trunks. And if you are really confident, just go along in a pair of briefs!
Please note - you are not to wear revealing underwear as the idea is not to offend regular passengers.
After the train ride, there will be an after-party in our "pantslessness". Everyone riding the train without pants and over the age of 18 is invited to join in.
