After her turns on America’s Next Top Model and various other reality shows, Adrianne Curry has garnered support in geek fandom because of her open affinity for cosplay and Star Wars. But her appearance at last weekend’s Star Wars Celebration V event has led to multiple instances of ugliness.
Earlier this week on MySpace, she blogged that what she initially thought was “a breeze” underneath her Slave Leia costume skirt was in fact a man groping her.
As I tried to push down my skirt I felt an arm underneath it. Then I was grabbed, hard, downstairs. At the time, my mind had trouble computing what had just happened. However, adrenaline kicked in and suddenly my heart was leaping out of my chest. it was like a ray f god shone down and I felt instantly sober. I whirled around and elbowed whoever was behind me to find myself looking eye to eye with a glassy eyed very stocky mexican man. He spoke NO english and was NOT a Star wars fan , nerd, or con goer.
