There she is....

There's an interesting article on Fox News about unusual beauty pagents. Did you know, for instance, that geeks have pagents? Well, it's true.
The Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant, held every year at the Star Trek Convention at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, aims to discover beauties who are out of this world.

But this pageant's definition of beauty might seem alien to most of us — these ladies get glammed up to assume the persona of any female Klingon character, official or created, from "Star Trek."

"[The pageant features] the most beautiful women the Klingon Empire has to offer, to be judged in Beauty, Talent and Personality categories," it says on the Miss Klingon Web site.
There are a couple of pictures at the Fox News link and more at the Miss Klingon site, and let's just say that they have a...somewhat different standard of beauty. That's okay, though. Klingon gals need love, too.
