Ok I was going to write about something like zombie movies (I just don't see the appeal) but then I realized I have been planning on writing this post for a long time. . . be warned its going to get ranty.
These are my opinions and do not reflect on my thoughts of any one. I am not judging anyone simply saying that I don't get it. as I have A LOT of friends who fall into this category. Also in the pictures I am posting here they are good friends and this is not representing any of my thoughts about them, I simply am discussing something I don't get personally.
Here is my geek confession: I don't get costuming.
|My friends Jen and Rachel|
I am coming from the perspective of Doctor Who fandom. I have been a fan of the show for my entire life and have been involved in organized fandom for about 10 years. When I was a teenager I found every piece of nonfiction I could on the show. I could tell you writers, producers, production assistants. That kind of stuff to me is as important as the story. It is odd to me that there are people who come in from a different direction. Notice I did not say it was wrong for them to do that!
As I said, I respect it and enjoy seeing the costumes but sometimes I question why people would dress up but not immerse themselves in the non-fiction behind the fiction. I am sure someone could ask me the exact opposite question!

For the other side of this take a look at my friend Rachel's Blog. She has some great costuming insight!
