Another hilarious phenomenon was the girls that were were in "show-off" mode, pandering to the nerds with plenty of cleavage and corsets. Personally, I find the whole "look-how-hot-I-am" thing somewhat silly, but in this case it seemed to be all in good fun and everyone was sort of "in on the joke." To be sure, the guys who can't get girls in real life were certainly loving it, so it's kind of a charity service, maybe :)
One of the coolest things, though, was I got to meet Steve Niles, creator of 30 Days of Night. This is a famous vampire graphic novel, and is coming out as a movie this fall with Josh Harnett. He was cool, and signed a couple comics for me.
So anyway, without further ado, here are some pics - check out these amazing costumes, folks!
The Tick! "Spooooooooooon!"
My friend Mike and a Stormtrooper
The Gears of War guys. I mean come on, how impressive is this?
Should this guy REALLY be in a tight skirt?

A hilarious robot.
For the guys, I give you some eye-candy. For the ladies, I give you....."Stormtrooper Elvis"!
Well, thats all for now folks. And remember, May the Force be with you. Live long and prosper.... Wolverine can beat up Iron Man. Batman didn't have armored suits in the original series. Everyone knows that the original Godzilla was NOT a giant iguana....
