The characters in slide 42 from left to right are Scorpion, Sonia, and Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat.

After viewing all of them I only agree the sexiest will be this one, picture 34. It has the right figure and face! The rest of them I wouldn't comment...

Next time I have a tough job on my hands I will consider putting on one of those - then I can be superman flying through difficult turbulence or cat woman clawing through my work or poison ivy girl - dare you interrupt me or just sexy me doing a tough job on my computer. Oh by the way - no one thought of dressing up as a Navi or Avatar....I think might do that for your next edition

I must agree that there is nothing overtly Geeky about the costumes, so I would suggest the title is a misnomer. However, despite the overall Heavy Metal ( not the music) tone, I love the pseudo leather in 11 and 19, and 23 can arrest me anytime !! And 26 blew me away since she is the image of a staff member here where I work, and I am going to have a "Ruff" time getting that costume dissociated from the image run together. Geek style may be a better title.

I located the link to the vlog showing her visit to the con http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iF4MT_ywZSU You will see a couple of the others on the list in her vlog. You will see on her card in the video her real name is Kathleen Elliott. She is a Brit living in the US

Photo 1 is of Becky Young who did an interview at the Con in 2010 in the same costume for CraveOnlineVideo. The link below will take you to the YouTube video of her doing an interview dressed as Tinkerbell! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qogrn8Ylmz0

I LOVED the imaginative outfits. I just found myself hoping that the ladies would be a bit (OK a LOT) more "full bodied"

What makes the subjects of these photos geeks? There's nothing about them that suggests that they have any geeky skills, knowledge or personalities.

Are you a Geek if you are paid to be there and have the $$$ backing for an extraordinary costume? Definitely Sexy, paid or not. Discuss...;)

...for more years than this gallery has pictures. Trust me - Tinkerbell has never looked so good! Not bad looking for a 53 year old fairy! :-) Sonja, nice work - and I hope those two hunks DO save your day!

If that was a guy I would say "He must be over-compinsating for "other" short comings" but since it is a girl ... well maybe she is envious? lol

They are attendees at a geek convention. Ergo, geeks. The popular conception that geeks are non-sexual is wrong in regard to geeks of either gender. We are just more direct in our personal relationships, which non-geeks find difficult to deal with

but she didn't make this gallery (at least this year).... however, that costume certainly does have sex appeal!

I've been getting 'page not found' on other articles, too. I'm also getting 'Permission Denied' errors when trying to post replies, although they usually post on the second attempt. I'll send an offering up to the PTBs. It really helps if we sacrifice a virgin, but they're tough to find around here.

Even NASA wallpaper never quite did it. #21 has an *amazing* costume, and #43 is clearly faster than a speeding locomotive! I'll probably never click through an entire SS again, but I'm glad I did this one; thanks for the cheap thrill, Sonja! You rock....

If this were supposedly an informative tech gallery, the replies would not be so nice... anyway, back to clicking through the images.

For some reason after I hit the submit button it did not refresh the screen and I pressed the submit button a couple more times. Don't you just love it when webpages don't work like they are meant to!

Was that supposed to make sense? Perhaps you don't understand my reference here, but even so...
