For the past four days I have been in New York City covering Comic Con and I really have to admire the insanity of some of the people there.
The picture above was not even the best costumes I saw. There was one guy dressed up as Bumble Bee from Transformers and it was awesome. But I do not think that these people are crazy...well not crazy crazy...Their fanatical love of comics, video games an
d everything else in between seems extremely familiar to me. I see no difference with the picture above and this guy:
Seriously, I do not see a difference.
Dungeons and Dragons = Fantasy Football
Mark Hamill = John Madden
Cosplayers = Body Painters
League of Legends = Madden games
I just wanted to pose the question, why is one groups' actions more socially acceptable than the other? Aren't they both very similar if not the same?
