Nerd Attire - Episode Four: The Costumed Nerd

To begin, allow me to apologize for the short hiatus from my series on Nerd Attire. Now, without further ado, I bring you part 4 of the series, the Costumed Nerd.

The attire for a Costumed Nerd is perfectly intuitive.
In this case, a particular sci-fi (or other nerd-type) character strikes a chord with the Costumed Nerd, prompting them to go to great lengths to support and even honor said character. Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, the obvious way to express this undying support is to duplicate the clothing that adorns the character.

It is this nerd's hope that the Costumed Nerd chooses opportune times to cloth his or her self as their favorite character, such as conventions, conferences and Halloween, but that is not always the case. A few, extreme Costumed Nerds will take it to the next level, outfitting themselves in science fiction costumes in their daily lives.

Enough narration. This attire can only be done true justice via digital imagery.

52% Pure Nerd

I happened upon this test today that determines what percentage of one's genetic makeup consists of Nerd, Geek and Dork components. See my results below:

Pure Nerd

52 % Nerd, 30% Geek, 13% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.

The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.
