I've aquired a number of costuming/cosplaying friends over the last few years, so this might be of some...amusement? to them.
This is one of the weirdest things I've seen in awhile.
I've been conventioning for awhile now, and have acrued many photos, and posted them on Flickr (Best 25 bucks I spend a year), and gotten many views and comments.
But this takes the cake.
I was checking for any new activity recently, and discovered some new comments on this photo.
Some guy saw a pic I took of a girl dressed as Storm at Dragon*Con 2006, and left a comment demanding she send him her costume. Which is weird to start with, because I have no contact with this girl, but the tone of the message also seems to feel like he might think I *am* this Storm, which is really weird, as anyone who knows me can attest to, as it's far from me. ;)
He also leaves his email address for contact. But wait, there's more! He leaves his REAL ADDRESS TOO.
Oh wait, the weirdness continues, because over here
he tries to enlist help from Tony Todd. o.O Again with his address!
The evil part of my brain wants to go visit his apartment and tell him to stop posting!
The *really* evil part of my brain wants to set up a fake GMail account and see how long I can mess with his head as "Storm". >.>
If this is the weirdness I get, I can only imagine what y'all with the real costumes have to deal with. =)
has sleuthed out a few more comments he's made on Flickr, but nothing quite as weird, yet, as those he left for me.
