Geek girls in costume at Comic-Con? Maybe it's because some girls just love playing dress-up. Maybe it's the success of films like "Spider-Man"and "300." Or maybe when superheroes, geeks and comic books are all put together in one convention center, there's no way to keep the hotties away.

Who knew you'd be able to find so many ladies who are easy on the eye -- the laser eye, that is -- at New York's Comic-Con convention?
Could it be that inside every sexy woman lies the beating heart of a "Battlestar"-watching, Halo-playing, "X-Men"-reading über geek? (Ah, we wish.)

Women in costume. There's nothing better.
