There are more attractive nerds nowadays because EVERYONE self-identifies as a "nerd." The people who say they're really into comic books and sci-fi these days are the same people who pretended to talk black in the 90's.
It's a shame there isn't a superhero who herds sheep.
Not most cosplay competitions - shows like comicon in SD - effect houses and companies will hire buff and buxom models to dress up.
Give me a classic nerd in glasses and ill-fitting clothes over a model in a costume any day.
The guy dressed as Connor Kent at r12 is a Datalounge legend--his pictures have appeared on this forum many times in the past. He's not only got a great face and body but also a nice package he loves showing off at Comic-Cons. He's a real little slut, and I mean that in the best possible sense.
