Female figure stretching 'OTW Fannews: Fandom Awakens and Stretches


Upvoted discussed the continuity of fandom across generations. "An immigrant from Vietnam, Greenleaf’s electrician dad developed a love for science-fiction in America watching TV shows like Star Trek and Johnny Quest. Then he saw Star Wars in the theaters when it came out in 1977.

'Definitely seeing Star Wars was a big thing for him, but I think he kept it to himself'" Now, however, it's all in the open. "'Once he saw me bringing a lot of costumes home and making them, he got interested...He’d ask me, ‘Can I try it on? Can I wear it?’ I’ve taken him to a lot of character events and introduced him to a lot of people, and he’s really gotten into it.'”

Star Wars fandom has been all over the media & these days the discussions are getting more thoughtful http://bit.ly/1ZQks2n
