This weekend, Arizona geeks out like crazy, and does most of it in costume.
There are approximately one hundred million billion costume parties going on this weekend in Arizona, but I linked to them yesterday.
But for when you’re not showing off your Dr Who cosplay, here is this week’s list of geek things to do:
