Cosplayers Set To Break World Record (Oddly, Not For Biggest Group of People Who Refuse to Wear Deodorant)
If you find yourself at intersection of Hollywood and Highland in the Los Angeles area tomorrow and wonder what that pungent, knock you on your ass odor in the air is; it’s not the public transportation system, the homeless community or the L.A. Smog. It will be the result of 1,000+ unwashed asses. Yep, that’s right. The nerds are coming out to play. There will be an army of sweaty, smelly nerds dressed in spandex and latex for everyone to see and hold their noses at.
Finding a reason to actually get out of their parents basement, this deodorant-less mass is actually attempting a world record. Cosplayers (people who dress in costumes of characters from pop culture) are setting out to break the Guinness World Record for most people dressed in superhero costumes in one place at the same time.
The brave geeks will try to top the previous record (1,245 costumed folks) set in Melbourne, Australia back in May. Organizers have taken to Craigslist to put out the call to assemble to all available cosplayers. As the posting on Yelp states, fans of all ages are encouraged to, “Bring your kids, parents, and even Grandma Betty and dress up as Superman, Batman, or even Captain Planet but the point is: DRESS AS A SUPERHERO!” (Your granda looks like Yoda anyway, so just bring her down. She’ll count).
If they pull it off then a round of congratulations are in order. It takes a lot to find so many people dress up awkwardly in public. I hope the loved ones of these nerds finally realize the significance of their tireless devotion to playing dress up.
