    "defended me with force"

    Disorderly intoxication?

    "The man was reportedly arrested for disorderly intoxication..."

    What other kind of intoxication is there?

    WTF?

    "breeze lifting up my skirt"

    There's a skirt on the Princess Leia "slave" costume?

    I guess I can't have been paying attention to the important details........

    What?

    Someone who Female, isn't a bit of a minger, and actually goes to star wars conventions?

    Is this a first?

      Quite common at SW conventions

      However, the nerds are too busy drooling over lightsabers to notice.

      Paid talent

      Most of the geniunely-attractive female cosplayers at conventions are paid attendees; they're the contemporary equivalent of E3's booth babes.

    "NOT a Star wars fan , nerd, or con goer"

    Sounds what most of us would describe as "normal" to me.

    I wonder what would have happened at a 200AD convention....?

      Possibly

      A beating of some sort, probably chased down by Roman Legionaries or Indomitable Gauls with magic potion.

      Nothing. Too tricky to get your hand up a toga.

      Eyethankyoo.

      The Groper would have kicked ass?

    See?

    Wouldn't happen at a Doctor Who convention/concert.

      What's a Mexican?

      Yes, because theres no mexicans in the Doctor Who universe

      They were only at the Star Wars convention because Darth Vader destroyed the Mexican home world, which is shaped like a Dorito

    I'm a bit confused

    If she's the ex "next top model", does that mean she is in fact "the top mode"l, or is she ex that too?

    "agreeable":

    Perhaps he was just in character as Jabba the Hut but forgot his costume...

    1. LaeMing

      In which case...

      ...a nice slow garotting with a rusty chain would be in order.

    Odd...

    "The man was reportedly arrested for disorderly intoxication..."

    So not sexual assault, driving under the influence or fleeing the scene of an accident? I'm sure one of those must be a felony.

    I thought American law was supposed to be tough?

    And Darth Vader?

    If you recall, there was a guy dressed as Darth Vader who robbed a bank a couple weeks ago

    Is he using cheap mexican labour and robbing banks so he can afford a new death star?

    I find your lack of courtesy .... disturbing

    Pervert??

    Only at a sci-fi convention could a heterosexual man wanting to cop a feel of an attractive woman be classed as a pervert...

      Stop

      There's nothing wrong with wanting to ....

      .... it's feeling that you can just help yourself which is frankly perverse.

    Miami?

    It was in Orlando... which is about 200 mi away. And yes, there was a lot of cuties at that convention in little metal bikinis. She wasn't one of them, as she was faking it in some generic non-SW-related outfit thing. She was just there for her "street cred" and to be in the "with-it" crowd. Just like Angelina Jolie and Pamela Anderson showing up at MotoGP. They aren't there for the bikes, just to "be seen"

      WTF?

      With it?

      "She was just there for her "street cred" and to be in the "with-it" crowd."

      With it? At a Star Wars convention? Whatever they're with, it isn't it.

      Really?...

      "She was just there for her 'street cred' and to be in the 'with-it' crowd."

      That ship sailed as soon as she left the house.

    Not wise to cause trouble at SF Cons.....

    Some years back I was at an SF Worldcon in England. A bunch (about 20) of drunken football fans thought they could find some entertainment by hassling the nerds (and several attractive women in costumes).

    Hotel front-of-house were outclassed, and those of us fans who were about weren't going to do much better, so we called Con (not hotel) security.

    Security came down the stairs, about a dozen guys all well over 6 foot, plus 2 young ladies who would actually have been the dangerous ones. We parted and let them through. The troublemakers started to look a bit less certain, but stood their ground.

    What really got rid of them (without trouble) was when security parted to let through 8 BIG guys, all in full Viking costume and weapons, straight from a demonstration.

    Never cause trouble at a Con.

    Brilliant. You owe me a new keyboard AND coffee. And a gravity well generator.
