And now they have turned it into the new high school with the mean girls drama that inevitably occurs when attractive girls get togther. Here are two girls whining about the mean girls drama that they themselves created by excluding male geeks.
As if it's not bad enough that they think they can re-write well established photography rules. They now think they can make their mean girls nastyness into ettiquette rules. Completely missing the point of dressing up, which is to make friends with people who like the same character you do, they are telling geeks not to be friendly. Here is what one fake geek girl wrote
"I’d like to reiterate, if I may, a few points from my panel that I believe are crucial to know when interacting with someone you admire: At conventions, DO NOT BECOME A HOVER FAN. Ask for a photo, say a compliment, maybe exchange a few lines of dialogue, and move on. DO NOT interject yourself into a person’s conversations that they are having with other people or follow a person around."
Understand geek? These girls want nothing to do with you. The mean girls from high school who hated geeks are now dressing up in cosplay to make money off desperate geeks. They think they are celebrities & demand to be treated that way.
This one is even charging money to take a photo with her just like the actors.
They don't want to talk about comics or anything else with us. They just want you to shut up & buy their prints.
And don't complain after you send 3 emails for something you paid for, or she will use the DARVO technique & unleash her white knights on you.
They also want you to send them free things.
#PenPals because she will never be attracted to the desperate geeks who send her free stuff.
Men dressing up in costumes, this thing that men have been doing for years & been ridiculed for, has just been noticed by some of these mean girls. Because to them, male geeks are invisible.
It's best to avoid these fake geek girls. If you try to talk to them to much, then you are "Gate-keeping" or being "creepy" or "harassing" them or whatever random accusation they can think of & they will get you kicked out.
