Last weekend in Astoria, a sci-fi burlesque show was held. Lovely girls dressed as Leeloo from The Fifth Element, Starbuck and Caprica Six from Battlestar Galactica, Catwoman, Silk Spectre and more danced and undressed, as you can see in this video (the band, which I believe is AM Preacher, playing “Science Fiction Double Feature,” is a nice touch). FYI, this video contain a lot of pasties, so it’s probably NSFW, although since there are no exposed nipples, it’s technically safe for YouTube. It’s pretty dimly lit, so maybe you can get away with watching it as long as no one’s too close.
Normally, I know nerd guys — and many nerd gals — like the sexy acts of nerdery, and thus I’m happy to post these things. However, there’s something more significant going on here. I would like to point out that Hazel Honeysuckle — who’s Leeloo and Seven of 9 in the video — emailed me this video specifically, as opposed to someone else telling me and sending me a link. So. In summary: attractive nerd girls, in cosplay, are now sending me videos of themselves undressing.
