Are YOU the Biggest Trekkie?

star-trek-fan-4.jpg

[via GeekNews]

If you think you’re the biggest Trekkie fan ever, it’s time to pull that Star Trek uniform out of the closet and prove it.

Esurance is sponsoring a “Biggest Trekkie Contest.” All you have to do is make a short video on why you think you’re the biggest Trekkie fan, and then upload it to their site, for a chance to win a trip for two to Hollywood for the premiere of the new Star Trek movie in May.

This could be a lot of fun…with the potential for a great prize! So start putting all those Star Trek action figures covering your desk to work…you only have until March 5th to complete your winning video.

A little more about Elf Fantasy Fair

We were contacted by Hellwolve regarding this event. He has more information to provide, so I thought we would just turn his comments into a separate post. Here ya go!! – manny

Ah, the Elf Fantasy Fair! I love it – been there twice and so far, I’ve had a lot of fun For the coming Elf Fantasy Fair, there is something special, too: a contest of sorts for who will be the King or Queen of Elfië.

‘Elfië’ is the name that has been given to the grounds of the Fair; a country of sorts that, for two days, will actually ‘exist’, in that it’ll have it’s own flag, anthem, consul, ambassador and a King or a Queen. Worthy of it’s Fantasy roots, the King or Queen will be chosen by the people…

The online ‘hunt’ for a new King or Queen was started last month, the first of December 2008. It’ll end this month, the 30th of January 2009.

Whoever becomes King or Queen will receive some privileges, but primarily, it’ll be really, really fun, as you get to do interviews, parades, all kinds of stuff.

Potential candidates were to create a promotional video for themselves and these video’s can be seen here:
haarzuilens.elffantasyfair.com/?page_id=564.

I, personally, will be going for King of that Fair, with the persona of “Morthar Corvinos”. Me, Hellwolve, but different, so to speak

If you wish to vote in this contest, you can do so here:
haarzuilens.elffantasyfair.com

To place your vote, follow the above link, scroll down to where one can see “Polls”. On the right, it will say:

Polls
Een nieuwe koning en/of koningin van Elfië dient gekozen te worden. Aan wie geef jij je vertrouwen? (Stemming loopt t/m 30 januari)

Gyan & Netel
Queen of Hearts & The Joker
Morthar Corvinos

Select the dot before ‘Morthar Corvinos’ and click the button to place your vote.

Thank you for your attention!

    It seems everyone has been searching high and low for the perfect Dr. Horrible Costume. The hardest thing for people to find has been a replica of Dr. Horrible’s Lab Coat. There are all kinds of lab coats available, but nothing that looks exactly right.

    Marvel to Host Costume Fashion Show at Comic-Con

    Marvel hosts Costume Fashion Show

    Going to Comic-Con? Marvel Comics will be teaming up with costume vendor Disguise to hold the first ever Superhero Costume Fashion Show at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego.

    The Fashion Show begins in the Marvel Booth (Booth #2429) Friday at 2:00 and will be followed by a photo-op with the models.

    Marvel to Host Costume Fashion Show

    According to the press release:

    This is no cosplay; these are seriously fierce costumes worn by incredible models, strutting their stuff down the catwalk, for the debut of the sexiest line of costumes ever created and inspired by Marvel super heroes.

    Dressing up as a super heroine in the past would have meant spandex and tights. No more! Disguise has tossed this old and unflattering cartoonish concept and instead made fashionable, wearable and fun costumes that not only fit great but look fabulous. These costumes are inspired by some of the hottest and most iconic heroes to grace the pages of Marvel, and this will be your first chance to see them live as they make their Comic-Con debut!
