Potato Heads which I do indeed own it became somewhat cool to be a Geek. It definitely wasn’t in the seventh grade when I realized I was the only girl who had a crush on Ralph Hinkley “The Greatest American Hero” or in college when I argued that “Ramble On” was Led Zeppelin’s best song because it took place in Middle Earth listen to it and prepare to smile. Further proof of geeks finally fitting in is the rise of Comic Con as one of the hippest events to attend in the country.

15 New York Comic Con Cosplayers Bizarrely Taking Breaks

As soon as I received the email notification about it, I knew I had to go. What would possibly make a more perfect Head Over Feels post? I must be the target demo. The day drew nearer, and I started to actually get a little excited.

We ate egg sandwiches at Brooklyn Fare where a lame middle aged man on a scooter looked at us like we were strange. Indeed, conventions like this are the nerd equivalent of a weekend clubbing in Las Vegas or Spring Break in Daytona. Have you ever dreamed of making out with an anime goddess, Harry Potter or Dr. Who— well, at comic con, you can make those dreams come true. Jet Girl: Literally the longest line at Comicon is for speed dating, and there are six year olds dressed up as spiderman waiting on it.

And you get to see people dressed as robots and wolverine sprawled on the floor eating pizza. And about 12 girls dressed as Ramona Flowers sending an empty box of Western Beef Ice cream sandwiches up and down the escalator. I am a huge fan of this film and am happy it seems to have found a following in the states. Jet Girl: We tried to escape for awhile but were stopped by a guy carrying a chain saw. When we finally escaped we went to eat diner food and Leela almost lost her eye in the middle of 11th avenue but I saved it from a speeding car!

Leela: One of the most exciting parts of comic con is just walking around and seeing cos players play fighting and posing for pictures. I saw Mortal Kombat battles, men in robot suits fighting the Rocketeer, and Harry Potter possibly Tina Fey in costume getting excited by a chance encounter with Marty Mcfly.

Steampunk is all this and more. And ”witty,” to boot? How much ”more” can there possibly be? Actually, at Comic-Con, ”women in pants” is a refreshingly exotic fashion statement. To be honest, I’ve never been a steampunk boy. The interest has been there; still waiting for the killer app of story to unlock the genre for them. I suspect I might find one — or a few — at this panel. Thursday, July 18, 11 a.

The surreal, eighth-grade-dance moment just made me want to giggle. The women entered first to be seated, and then the men came in to fill in the seats opposite them. The women were to rotate over a seat every three minutes until time was up, everyone marking down the assigned number badge of the persons you ended up connecting with. I found scientists, engineers, culinary students and graphic designers among the women I met, each of whom I could have listened to for at least more than three minutes.

There were a few things about the event that made me feel a little uncomfortable.

Our guest correspondent Mary decided to see what it was like to speed date other geeks and nerds at New York Anime Festival/Comic Con.

Advertised as a free weekend activity for convention attendees over 18, New York Comic Con brought back speed dating for the second time at this geek-filled con. Since I am single, female, and have never speed dated before, I wanted to try this activity out. It was a quick sign-up where I entered my name, email, age, and the time slot when I wanted to speed date. Afterwards I received a confirmation, and thus it became part of my Comic Con agenda.

After spending an entire day at the Javits Convention Center, I went to the room where the speed dating was held. There was a check-in table, where I was assigned a number for privacy purposes, and handed a paper and pen. There were three columns on the score card: the first column was to mark down the corresponding number for the other person, the second was a description of the person, and third was to say yes or no. While they were setting up the room, I found myself in line outside with the other female participants, while the males were on the opposite side.

It seemed like there were more guys then girls overall, but there were more females who cosplayed than males. I was one of the few female participants not cosplaying. The host had a good sense of humor, and he told the females that if we had any problems with an individual guy to raise an arm as if yawning. That would signal the end of that particular session.
