SpiderQueenDemon: That's a clever idea and she's pretty.

I saw a dude cosplayer at this one con, though, he actually went on a fancy diet and hired a personal trainer to resemble his WoW character. Came out more ripped than a ticket, but still all gamer-pale with that sweet indie-boy face. I'd like some PvP with that, know'm sayin'? Bro had a sweeter ass than three Pride parades and bigger junk than sweeps week on 'Hoarders.'

/cosplay perving is FUN! I had no idea!


Are you going for misogyny, to make men uncomfortable? Because, uh, that's going to be difficult. Guys like the attention. And most cosplay era guys drool over are pro models anyway, who are supposed to be eye candy.

BHShaman: Toquinha:

If you have the dual lands from Revised edition, they start at $100 each, assuming they're in near mint condition.

Does not seem to be eBay
 

I have to have at least 10 of those.
Where can you get $100 ea.?
I'll sell them for that.


If you are going to link an eBay search to make a point about price, try linking to a SOLD search. Dual lands are usually sold around $30 (not a $100 though).

That's a previous version of the dress (and the dragon skull).

I hotlinked that from her Tumblr.  (No I'm not stalking, it was linked in the article.)

We (a fair number of geeks) pooled our crap commons together, our Homelands uncommons, Fallen Empires junk, The Dark fodder.  O yeah, we made a box of.... beats me, maybe two and a half thousand useless cards...

/hot hot hot
//Has a friend or two on a card or two as models for artist Alan Rabinowitz
 
2013-03-25 12:05:13 PM
... maybe it's time to sell those old dual lands...
/also hasn't played but once or twice in a decade
 
2013-03-25 12:37:37 PM

Wait, is that a Java Chip frapuccino? Defacing Magic cards and good taste in frozen coffee drinks...if I wasnt already spoken for this would be a "how you doin?" moment.

I was not trying to a point, it was legit quickie search.
I should have filtered by sold, but even so... so many unbid cards at $0 would hardly point to $100 selling.

So, is there another market other than local shops or eBay.
Local shops in our piss poor town don't sell for near $100.
eBay is not selling for near $100.

I clicked the links above that have price point indicators and both SAY around $100.
So, where are they getting sold for those rates?

Anyone else catch the guy at 2:10 in the video, jesus had had a full blown neck beard going.

Might need to go to some TCG specific websites/forums. Go to where the market really is, your likely to get your best price there.

I don't know; that dress is sort of plain.

I would definitely Magic her Gathering!

Hagbardr: I'd tap that.


And,we're done. Well played, like a Mox.

I don't know what a Paxus East is, but she is a lovely, lovely lady.  I need to find a geek girlfriend!
 
2013-03-25 06:00:06 PM
I'm caught between

1) What a pretty girl! What a great execution of her idea! Very cool!

and

2) What a pretty girl! What a great execution of her idea! Very cool! Too bad she's so emotionally messed up she's into cosplay and nerd games.

Not trolling - Used to go GenCon.

Swarley: Running slivers (more than occasionally) in any of the groups I play with would be the fastest way to get your ass tossed out. There's cheap, there's overpowered, and about fifty yards down the road is slivers.


I always clear it with people before I break it out. "Just so you know I'm running the most illegal deck you'll find for a while. That cool?" (heartstone/altar of ashnod/queen combo with a couple alurens thrown in for good measure). Never could get any recycles to fark with people more.

Has anyone made some sort of witty comment on how they would have sex with her, but incorporate some sort of nerd reference in the process?

No. If you go ahead and make one, you'll be the first.

kroonermanblack: Are you going for misogyny, to make men uncomfortable? Because, uh, that's going to be difficult. Guys like the attention. And most cosplay era guys drool over are pro models anyway, who are supposed to be eye candy.


I wanted to see if the same creativity in metaphorical descriptions of attractive specimens of the opposite gender would work with the genders reversed, and found the attempt so amusing that I have decided to admire such people a little more openly, especially in situations, such as nerd culture, where males admire females very openly and females are quieter in expressing the same feelings. The stereotype-breaking incongruity of females openly perving on guys is, if anything, comedic, even if we're being perfectly sincere.

Most of the guys I find attractive at conventions are quite gay. That's okay, though, as a lot of hot booth-babes play for the girls' team and we females enjoy pairs of attractive gay guys in much the same way males enjoy pairs of attractive lesbians. And I know hot cosplayer guys are meant for visual-confectionery admiration just as much as attractive female cosplayers are.

Basically, I finally see the point of a behavior and am adopting it in the spirit of equality. We can all be happy, friendly pervs together, because in smutty fandom, there is really and truly something for everyone.

So... misogyny for fun? I can get behind that ;}
