Fanboys at Comic Con 'dressed to depress' (Click it if you dare)
MC brings up some interesting points about the very nature of fanboys in his post. He got me thinking about the extremist nature of many of these guys. In many ways, geeks are the 'normals', while the fanboys give us a bad name.
A few days ago, someone posted a link to some fascinating costumes at the Nerd-Con, er Comic Con. I never really understood the whole dressing up as my favorite cartoon/videogame thing, but there are some amazing outfits that some of these fans make up. For every clever one, there are 4-6 really bad ones. I have to wonder if they are aware that their bodies aren't meant for those things.
Here are a few rules for the next comic con.
Unless the superhero is over 300 pounds, you shouldn't wear that costume. (I don't remember The Flash ever being overweight.)
We need more grown women dressed in those sexy Japanese school girl outfits. You can never have enough of those in one building.
School girl outfits: Never has a clothing style had some much range as this one. From a real Catholic school to a strip club.
