This week on the Interwebs, our favorite geeks got into costume, visited geeklands across the US, and found the highest concentration of Cumberbatch on the web. The World's End actor and writer Simon Pegg stopped by Marvel, The Nerdist's Chris Hardwick channeled his doppelgänger, and The Star Wars Craft Book author Bonnie Burton was found guilty of Bene-pinning.
See Simon, Chris, Bonnie, and more in the top 10 tweets of the week from geeks we love.

Actor Nathan Fillion goes incognito. Sort of.

The Sync Up host Veronica Belmont had one too many vitamin gummy bear supplements.
