The First Annual Geekie Awards were held Sunday night at the Avalon Theater, and it was an absolute blast!  It was a lavish and nerdy affair, complete with cosplayers, an R2 unit, red carpets and celebrities.

Not to mention the tech touches like 3-D printers as centerpieces, the restored bridge of Star Trek’s The Enterprise, and badges that shot lasers.

The festivities began with incomparable Stan Lee receiving a Lifetime Achieve Award presented by Seth Green. Alison Haislip was a funny and charming host who kept the fun flowing.
