Cover pose-off – Jim C Hines judges fantasy cover pose imitations

By now you should have heard of Jim C Hines striking a pose. My personal favorite is ‘I don’t have a tattoo but I’ll flash my insulin pump site at you‘.

Tonight Jim judged other poseurs emulating ridiculous images on fantasy covers in a cover pose-off. Criteria for success included cracking of bones and calls for chiropractors. Poses were deemed acceptable if the only way to get closer to the projected image was to break one’s back. Judges were kind and only talked about dislocation of joints, they didn’t actually require dislocation of joints.

Directions to help poseurs were given by other poseurs and a very enthusiastic audience. At one point an audience member hoisted Danny Oz’s cheeks higher to increase authenticity. You had to be there.
