- Vancouver, British Columbia - I took the train downtown dressed as the Riddler. People were doing their best not to stare at the green suit, purple tie, and cheap bowler hat with a question mark. I walk down Granville Street amongst the crowds feeling a little out of place, even though Vancouver is a host to many people from many walks of life. I should feel like I’m perfectly blended in with this eclectic crowd on this Friday evening.
It’s not until I get within sight of the Cellar nightclub on Smithe that I see a line up of others dressed in a multitude of costumes. I breathe a sigh of relief, and then feel a little ashamed that these hundreds of people in costumes better (and some far more revealing) than mine have no issue letting their inner geek out.
