I’m Setting Booty Traps!

Rog as Data from The Goonies in the Tournament of Nerds! Data from The Goonies costume!

Last weekend, I performed in another Tournament of the Nerds show at the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre here in LA, and this time I was debating on behalf of The Goonies. Naturally, I saw this as the perfect opportunity to make a Data costume to wear while I performed on stage. I'll always jump at the chance to dress up as one of my favorite characters, even if Halloween is still a long ways off. It was a really great show and I even got to give a dramatic "this is our time" speech from the movie. Big thanks to everybody who came out and to my fellow nerdy performers.

By the way, anybody who dares to take a ride up Troy's bucket had best beware of my pinchers of peril!

Beware my pinchers of peril! Data from The Goonies costume!
Goonies never say die... but your crotch does.

Also, in case you missed it, I dressed up as Ted "Theodore" Logan from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure at the previous nerd show. Excellent!

That is one silky looking glove.

I suppose if you tell a lot of nerds you're going to a Tournament of Nerds dressed as Data, they'd think Star Trek..
But Goonies is just the end of that age where asian characters were still allowed to have accents and nobody called it racist because they were -awesome guys- often with cool inventions.. like good ol' Data. :D
awesome costume.

Who are you going to dress up as next? Marty McFly? Lisa from Weird Science?

Wow, I love the attention to detail you put into those costumes!
The trench coat needs a few patches though. :)

You know with just the trench coat you could almost pass for director Kevin Smith, plus or minus a few pounds and a bald spot.

Oh god, I love the Upright Citizens Brigade. When it was on Comedy Central, I watched it at every opportunity. So much indiluted insanity and win, distilled into one absolutely wonderful show.

My favorite remains Power Marketing. Because I have a new brain. And it's powerful, explosive, and a real competitor.

Pinchers of Peril? It's Pinchers of Power, isn't it?
