Any other LARPER's here?

I thought it was pretty stupid at first, but then tried it. kind of embarrasing too at first, but now I don't care and like it alot.

Live-action role playing? Or is it some form of cancer?

Re: Any other LARPER's here?

No, I'd rather get laid. I've yet to see really hot nerd girls LARPING, so I'm out.

I did like the ending to "Role Models," though.

I do hear if you can't find a partner (lady or man) at an SCA event, then you are a lost cause.

Is there a LARP about the life and times of JFK? I imagine you'd rock that one.

I've never even seen it, so I haven't ever tried. I don't really know what happens.

So you dress up in clothes you don't feel comfortable in and pretend to be somebody you're not.
That pretty much been describes my entire adult life.

No, we are really performing spells and stabbing each other.

Re: Any other LARPER's here?

Is this the one where every girl is fat but wears a middle-ages style corset to try to fool us?

I do this, sort of. I belong to an improv group that runs out in public places and video tapes ourselves vomiting on female clergy.

What a coincidence! I belong to an improv group that goes out in public places dressed as female clergy.

All I have to add to this discussion is I wish this movie would at least get dumped to BD already:

I'm guessing since you live in SLC that the toughest part of all of that is even finding female clergy to begin with.

Seriously. I saw the trailer for this in a theater more than two years ago and it still hasn't been released. It was filmed almost three years ago now.
