        Very cool! Thanks for reaching out. Want to tweet out our gallery? :) Also, how long did it take to make that Deadmau5 head, because wow.

      Haha! You have two of my costumes up on this….preggo Snooki and Consuela from Family Guy. It really is no fun being what everyone else is at con. So, that’s why I chose to do the most random costumes for my cosplay. :)

      I think that perhaps from a geek perspective, some of those costumes you mentioned do seem “mainstream” but I think it is strange to say that Star Wars costumes are acceptable (I don’t think there is a more mainstream sci-fi franchise out there – there’s a even a ride at Disneyland for chrissakes) when other obscure (but perhaps less appealing to a certain facet of geek culture) characters are portrayed. I can’t think of a single person I know who has not seen Star Wars, but I only know a handful of people who have even heard of Archer.

      I think that ultimately what matters is that people come to Comic-Con to share in their obsession about whatever thing they love with other like-minded people, in a safe place where others won’t judge them for being freakishly obsessed with something that the rest of the world is only moderately interested in. (Although, I say good riddance to the celebrity autograph stalkers… and I suppose I agree that Snookie would have been more Comic-Con appropriate/creative had she been a Snookie-Wookie instead: http://goo.gl/Llue0)

      Comic Con is now billed as a POP CULTURE event, so I think there is even a place for a Snooki costume there.
