"It's a way to get the geek on. You get your geek on."
Wizards, SuperHeroes, and Pirates....

"And that's just some of the characters you can find here at this years Bridal Affair....wait a minute....I don't think that's right hello? Ok, that was my mistake, let's try this again. That's just a few of the characters you can see here at ConNooga"

Like X-Men Super Hero.....Rogue.....

"She has the super power to be able to absorb from other super heroes their super powers that's why she keeps the gloves on."
And of course there are the Trekkies

"We are pretty much into Next Generation right now."
"I guess it's kind of a nostalgic thing with what we grew up with."

"Not all the characters here at Con Nooga are human, just like R2-D2. He's one of the biggest draws today and the group behind me...they make them from scratch....BEEP BEEP WHEEEEEEW!"

"I try to make everything that you could possibly see in a movie work. It gets really geeky. I mean suddenly it's like there's more electronics and brains in these R2s than there was in the first original moon landing."

STANDUP #4 23:40:14 "Are you a vacuum? Can you vacuum at least? Anything? Can you do laundry? Anything? Wash my dog? Well then what good are you? What do you do? Tell me what you do....BEEP BEEP WHEEEW....I don't know if I can handle that."

Don't feel bad for R2, he had plenty of admirers, as did many of the fans that donned costumes for the event

"I love seeing the joy on people's faces when they actually can see a character that's well done. I like taking pictures with people."

One question remained unanswered as we leave Con Nooga 2014....Star Wars or Star Trek?

"I've been a Star Wars fan longer, but I haven't actually done a Star Wars costume yet, I hope to soon. We're a little newer to the fandom and probably get out geeked by some of the older fans. "

23:35:34 "We need to have the license plate a house divided, I'm Star Wars and my family is Star Trek."

If Trekkies and Star uh Warsians? Can live in peace.....and the Dude continues to abide...there may yet still be hope for mankind.....
