Okay, so some guy from some crazy website called SuperDPS.com asked me to write some crazy things about sexy nerdy stuffs. Let’s see…..
The first thing that comes to mind when I think “sexy nerdy stuff” is Cosplaying. Nothing makes me giggle like a fan girl more than seeing a scantily clad woman representing one of my favorite comic book or anime characters. Cammy is a classic, and so is Psylocke, though I’ve seen some pretty sexy versions of Pikachu too.
The list of sexy cosplays just goes on and on. The hardest part about being a cosplayer is actually getting the costumes made or making them yourself. No one is going to be carrying a Major Motoko Kusanagi outfit in the Juniors department, that’s for sure. My local gun store doesn’t carry a spartan laser, does yours?
So while you sit and enjoy the short-shorts and the long blonde wigs, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes. One cosplay, for me, takes months of planning. Sewing alone could take many weeks. After all that sweat, tears, moaning and groaning and touching myself… *ahem*.
After all the hard work that goes into creating a sexy cosplay, I finally get to wear it and show it off at a convention. Every cosplayer knows how it feels to finally wear your creation and be seen in public wearing it.
The feel of a giant spotlight on you from the moment you enter the con to the moment you go back to your hotel room. There’s that amazing moment where some random person chases you down, between all the other cosplayers and all the other spectators and the staff and the artists and the tables and down a flight of stairs and across a super crowded room, in front of photographers taking pictures and around a table and knocking down a little kid to say “HEY! I LOVE YOUR COSPLAY, CAN I HAVE A PICTURE WITH YOU?!!!!!1!!!ONE!”
Yup. It’s happened, and it’s sure to happen again.
My favorite aspect of being a cosplayer is also being a model. There’s something to be said about bringing that character to life, then being able to have awesomesauce pics of it afterward. I have photoshoots that vary from fashion to cosplay to editorial, and all of them have a flavor of their own. In fact, they mostly taste like chicken.
When it comes down to it though, cosplay is about the people. Everyone just wants to have fun, enjoy all the cool things and the incredible culture that comes with being a nerd. It’s an endless list of incredible stuff you can buy that have a geeky background ($359 Browncoat, anyone?). It’s equally impressive the things you can cosplay and gain recognition for it.
Everything from a strip of bacon to a giant transforming robot has been cosplayed. As for me, though, I love a girl in a school girl costume and knee high socks. I love Domo-kun, Xbox360, orange juice, and long walks on the beach.
I love being naked and nerdy. Hell, I just love being naked, and I do so for a couple websites now – CosplayDeviants.com and GodsGirls.com. The only thing better than being naked and nerdy is… actually, I can’t think of a damn thing that’s better than that.
