Looking for a gf whom really loves horror-movie paraphernalia and anime? She that are sitting across away from you at nyc Comic-Con’s event that is speed-dating. Brian Heater reports.

“You understand Ke$ha, right?” asks the girl because of the synthetic Freddie Krueger glove.

“Sure,” I answer, a bit baffled. Provided the limitless conversational subjects presented because of the convention that is jam-packed above our minds, i might do not have guessed we’d broach the job of this “Tik Tok” singer therefore quickly.

“There’s a song,” the lady explains, “Take it well.” She recites the chorus,

There’s a accepted place downtown, in which the freaks all come around. It’s a hole when you look at the wall surface. It’s a dirty free for several.

The parallels between ny Comic-Con and therefore track are unmistakeable, she states. First, the convention is downtown. (Actually, the Jacob K. Javits Center is maybe not downtown, but we don’t correct her. No body likes a know-it-all.) The freaks component, she claims, is inherent—the geeks, the dorks, the nerds (my terms), all decked down in costumes and paraphernalia.

The “hole when you look at the wall surface part that is ambiguous. I’ve got a couple of theories, but provided the fairly restricted period of our date, We have them to myself.

Fundamentally, all of it results in that last line. Nyc Comic-Con, it appears, is a dirty free for many.

Of course, there’s absolutely nothing that is particularly“dirty on in space 1A20. The area is sterile and well-lit, with 40 foldable chairs neatly organized. When every 3 minutes, the males are instructed to face up, just take one step to their right, and begin anew with all the next available woman.

Emcee and self-styled geek standup Ryan Glitch operates a reasonably well-oiled device in a meeting space therefore steeped in intimate awkwardness you can cut it with a light-saber reproduction. “They call me ‘Giganakin,’” Glitch announces before the session commences, “because I’m overweight, and my costume is Anakin.”

The declaration is not completely accurate. He’s a guy that is big certainly—a self-proclaimed stereotypical showgoer (heavy, white, nerdy)—but there’s no Jedi paraphernalia on their big frame. We have been first introduced to him outside, into lines of male and female, forbidding pre-show inter-gender conversations, muttering the phrase “sausage-fest” several times, and generally lamenting the dearth of X chromosomes as he separates us.

“What kind of geek have you been?” a lady asks me personally. We hesitate for a moment and react, “Comics, i suppose.” It’s not as popular a remedy when I expected.

It really is an issue, without doubt, provided by both relative lines, and Glitch along with his scantily clad gf start the entire process of flagging down females.

Glitch announces reassuringly into the type of dudes which he came across their “lovely assistant” at a previous event—C5, he informs me later on, brief for Celebration, a semi-annual Star Wars meeting, the 5th of that was held come july 1st in Orlando. It had been the time that is first one-man business, Lightning Fast Speed Dating, had taken component this kind of a show, plus it ended up being a rousing success, by many reports.

As soon as we first spot him downstairs at the Javits Center, but, he’s got exchanged their Jedi robes for sunglasses and a black colored T-shirt. It’s only after an assistant hands him a black colored leather-based jacket|leather that is black} and fake plastic shotgun with a bright orange tip that he’s more than simply a speed-dating host; he’s a cyborg sent through the future to facilitate nerd love, offer water containers in return for Star Gate trivia, and break jokes of dubious style in blended business.

Ours could be the 2nd of three sessions that are such during the period of New York Comic-Con’s three times, plus one about speed dating through the meeting appears to have captured the imagination of this show’s attendees. The lines are long, and Glitch will finally turn individuals (mostly guys) away before opening the doorways. He counts from the females and an number that is equal of, cutting from the line right before me personally.

“Can I communicate with you for an additional?” We ask.

“Am I in big trouble?” the Terminator reacts.

He is told by me that I’m because of the press. That I’m right here to report from the event, undercover.

“Are you single?” he responds. We nod.

“Are you right here merely to report, or have you been looking for somebody?”

“Well,” I answer, “you can’t say for sure.”
