The social network for Star Trek Fans!
....using crudely made fake pics and avatars on their profiles? Look I love Trek, but Im not so far gone that Id go to that kind of trouble. I would dress up for a convention if I had the money and maybe a Trek friend to go with me. Beyond that, I wouldnt get that crazy.
Well, some people do not feel comfortable putting their 'Real' photos up on Social networking sites and that is up to each individual person. I personally have at times put up symbol photos on my Social networking sites, like the IDIC pic or even the High guard symbol from Andromeda or maybe even a graphic art of the T.A.R.D.I.S. Many Trek fans here put up their IMVU avatar photos or a photoshop pic of their favorite celebrity in a Trek uniform etc....
I costume, for Charity events, Conventions etc. I enjoy Cosplay, I enjoy many diverse genres. Some people enjoy costuming a lot, other's like yourself are more subdued in your Fan-dom.
I say to each their own. I have had people make fun of my charity event costuming photos online FB, MP etc. and the one thing I have always taken away from Internet bullying is this.... People will be mean and unkind online and in the real world..... that is a given. But I refuse to let anyone rain on my parade... ;)
Enjoy Fan-dom your way..... and have a great week.
Well said! Don't let anyone rain on your parade.
