It makes sense that the guy who played a Real Nerd Guy on Portlandia is into cosplay. But he isn't the only one. Apparently, people love dressing up as nerd icons out there.

The newest episode of Cosplay Boom focuses producer Todd Kenreck's home city, which appears to be a very convenient place for a dude making a documentary series on fan culture to live in. As always, there's lots of wonderful costuming on display here but the moments that tug my heartstrings are the one with the parents and kids getting geared up as heroes and Halo grunts all together.
