Some people may call New York's Comic-Con a bunch of "Clone War" apologists corralled into the Jacob Javits Convention Center, but we prefer to call it Geek Fashion Week. Costuming isn't just for "Star Wars" nerds anymore. The characters at Comic-Con range from the extremely obscure to the completely unrealistic. (C'mon, how can there be a female Boba Fett?)

Check out a selection of some of the Con's best looks, and let your freak flag fly without actually having to mingle with the (disconcertingly) unwashed masses.
