Awesome nerdiness from around the net

Well there have been some really cool things on the internet lately.  I have to say that for me the ones that have really stuck as of late have been Doctor Who themed.  But there is just so much cool stuff going on and now that  we are in the early days of convention season there should be even more coming soon.

Here are some of the pictures from Day 2.  I was in a really interesting panel that brought up Cosplay does not equal consent and it’s interesting that it has become such a talking point at cons.  Not that the idea is wrong but because it is so right that it shouldn’t have to be stated and because it has to be talked about is sad.    ETouching someone without their permission is illegal in any instance.  There are so many strong female characters to dress up as but so many of them also dress in overly provocitive manors.  I don’t think there’s a problem with dressing like them,but I do think there’s a problem with the way they are created.  It also saddens me that when a company tries to move away from an over sexed character look there is an outcry from the fans to change the character back to looking that way.  Most recently, Power Girl and her lack an then reinsertion of the “boob window.”
