Interviewer Swaps Usual Convention Questions To Find The Real Fake Geeks [VIDEO]

Jennifer Landa decided to do some investigative journalism at San Diego Comic-Con to sort out this whole “fake geek” issue. And she enlisted help from our good friends Andre Meadows and Dr. Andrea Letamendi!

Psychology of Cosplay [VIDEO]

When I found out I was on a panel set for 9 p.m. Friday night of New York Comic Con I figured it would be the panelists and ten of our friends. Much to my surprise, it was standing room only to hear psychologists Robin Rosenberg and Andrea Letamendi and cosplayers Holly Conrad, Bill Doran, and yours truly talk about the psychology behind cosplay and cosplayers. Moderator Jenna Busch helped lead us through some interesting statistics on the people who do it, how much time and money they spend on their costumes, and the reactions of those outside the geek community. Thanks to Lawrence Brenner for videotaping the hour-long panel!
