Well, This Is Interesting ...

One of my Katsucon photos - the one of the girl in the dress made of Pokemon cards - was posted on a site called Geekologie. In fact, it is still on the front there. That explains why my views count has just exploded, especially on that picture ... .

(The comments on the site are ... interesting.)

I am not at all surprised at the comments. (I only read the first fifteen or so, but I assume they're representative.)

Indeed representative. A couple of them were more generally bemoaning their girlfriend-less state, and I wanted to say "Dude! Man up and act civilized - there are plenty of fannish girls who'd be interested in you if you put in a little effort at controlling your worst tendencies!"

The dress is awesome! You could not pay me to check out the comments, lol.

They're actually slightly amusing because in between all the predictable sexualized responses, there are an awful lot of nerds expressing trauma at the destruction of the cards or arguing about their value. XD

How do they even know she used the ~authentic~ cards and not photocopies?

Details, details!

(Perfect icon choice! *snickers*)

The guy who made the posting was actually encouraging them to moan over the wanton destruction of the cards, and linked to the high-res version so that they could do a better job of it!

(I need a geek guy icon. Maybe Kazuo from Bus Gamer? And the original post is now being reblogged to yay many other geek boy sites ... .)

And they predictably rose to the bait in droves. Ahhh, nerds. XD

I have to say, though, that I appreciate that the only guys who seem to have actually showed up on Flickr to comment in response to that (and maybe to the earlier posting I discovered on another geek-guy site, and the Twitter one of them sent ... ) were pretty polite and just generally admiring.

(And the hit count is now up to more than 2,400 ... !)

That's a relief, yes. :D
