Post subject:  My Sunday at Gen Con (aka the tribute to the hotties)

 Sunday:

Brain fried. No more juice left in it. Due to exhaustion, malnutrition, emotional overload and brain fatigue, I was walking around in a complete haze. There were smaller tournaments I could have entered on Sunday, since I wasn’t playing in the top 8 finals, but I chose to just relax, have fun, and forget my woes. To the dealer hall again!

There are other things for geeks to behold in the dealer hall besides games and merch. There are wise sellers who know how to get gamers’ attention. They go out and hire models, actresses and beautiful women of all sorts to lure the customers in. And at Gen Con, they come out in packs! They are known as:

This company uses lots of models in their games. We like them.

Image
I wish I was in this troop

Image
There’s a robot there too!

Image
She’s actually the artist. Double threat!

Image
Image
Same Booth Babe, different day. Sheʼs promoting Ascension, by the way!
ImageImage

Image
OK, Iʼm not proud . . . but COME ON!

Image
This is the actual model in the calendar. Posing with her calendar.
Looks a little different as Princess Liea, no?

Oh - it occurs to me that it might be time to dispel a rumor that concerns the attractiveness level of the sparse few females that do attend Gen Con. While that negative image is certainly true of some, it is not true of all. Time for some photos of actual, non-hired (to my knowledge), for-real hot nerd attendees!

Image

Image
Hottest R2-D2 ever!

Image
No idea who she’s supposed to be (nor do I care)

Image
Wish this pic wasn’t so blurry!

Image
She’s legal. I checked.

Image
Dunno, but hot.

Image
(well endowed) Dead Alice

Image
D&D Freakette?

Image
Power Ranger? Metroid? I dunno . . . But hot

Image
Holy sexy super-villains Batman!!!
Image

Image
OK - Joker isn’t sexy . . . but his nursemaid sure is!

Image
This catwoman has very nice . . . attributes

Image
Super Mario’s . . . Sister!?!
Image

Image
What game does SHE come from? I must play it!

Image
Ah, furries! http://freakipedia.net/index.php5?title=Furries

Image
Yet another example of when I have no idea what they are portraying,
but I am suddenly very interested.
Image
You don’t really see how great this costume is until you get the 360 degree view.
Once again, I’m not proud, but COME ON!!!

Image
Lara Croft (yawn) and CAPTAIN HAMMER!!!
Sorry, Lara,
NPH + Mal + Joss Whedon = WAAAAYYY Greater than you!

So some may disapprove of all the objectification of females that I displayed in my Sunday recap. Well, all I can say is at least it’s POSITIVE objectification. I think gamer ladies should be held on high, not torn down.

Well - that was it for Gen Con 2012. We made our way home and drudged back into real life. Even through all the exhaustion, headaches and heartaches, it was all worth it!


I’ll leave you all with one final thought:


Contrary to popular belief, we nerds do alright for ourselves.
Image
Then again . . . not all of us are dating television actresses. Oh wait - that’s only me. ;)


PS - curious about those cards? (Booth Babes, Gamer Grrrl, and New Hotness) It's from a game called Edition Wars! It's by the folks from D20 Radio's new game division called Gamer Nation Studios. You are a gamemaster trying to win gamers into your group and declare you edition supreme!
