This weekend, burlesque troupe Devil's Playground did its best video game cosplaying, then did what normally happens at such events: they got mostly naked. But the undressing was handled with respect for the games referenced.

While the folks at Nintendo may not approve of Princess Peach, pictured, and Metroid's Samus Aran getting on-stage nude codes, clearly the throngs of nerds in attendance did. The LA Weekly was in attendance for this twice-in-a-lifetime baring all, photographically capturing the event at which lady Link got down to little more than a Hyrulian shield.

Other characters dressed up as, then down as, include Street Fighter's Chun-Li and Bloodrayne's Rayne. Hey, not everyone can be Peach.

Obviously, this is not at all safe for work, as it heavily features pasties. If this sort of thing sounds like something you'd like to see in person, a repeat performance will be held on June 3rd at the Bordello bar in LA. Just in time for E3!
