I know it may be hard to believe, but not everyone who frequents nerd conventions dresses up in cosplay costumes. That's right, after visiting 2013 SLCNerd Expo at The Complex last Saturday, I was completely blown away when I discovered people in normal clothes, like khakis, cardigans and long-sleeved T-shirts.--- In fact, despite over-hyped, media-driven stereotypes, more than 18 percent of all SLCNerd convention-goers were not wearing a costume (Disclaimer: 62 percent of all percentages are made up)...

Here's a panel of normal-looking experts discussing whether or not Lord of The Rings sucks. Not a single person is wearing a cosplay costume.
