When Costumes Attack

Just when you thought nerds couldn't get any weirder, you stumble across what appears to be a video game convention with costumed gaming geeks.

Ok, look, I've gone to several science fiction cons. I've even helped put together more than my fair share of costumes for the masquerade. So I don't have much of a beef with this stuff. However I can say that (to me at least), photos like these will be the geek equivalent of "hair-metal era" pictures hidden in the closets of thousands of more conventional parents...

"Mom... please tell me the person wearing the leg warmers and the white belt is not you!"

"Ha... you should see the ones of your dad in his Dragonball costume."


And let me tell you, nothing screams "chick magnet" more than a guy dressed up as Mega-Man. Heh...
