Sci-fi is traditionally a geek’s game, but we have two words for anyone who thinks the genre isn’t sexy: Slave Leia. Carrie Fisher’s metal bikini is one of the standout moments of Star Wars. Furthermore, X-Men likely leaves you with visions of Mystique’s blue silhouette. And what about Total Recall? How does Mary the three-breasted mutant wear bras? Scandalesque celebrates sci-fi’s fuzzy line between sexy and strange with its annual Sexy Sci-Fi show, featuring short scenes of titillating guys and gals stripping down to their skivvies. Join the fun by entering the costume contest while donning your best Leela or Uhura.
