    Do the ppl look at you as if you were mad?. Are you supported by more fans like you?. Do you go dressed in Jedi wear to the premiere in your city?.

    It can be pretty scary, though it really depends. Fans in FFF can hang around without mentionning anything SW related, others are totally into lightsaber fights and size of star destroyers.
    I personally love the movies but talking about SW all day isn't my thing.

    Do the ppl look at you as if you were mad?.
    Sometimes, but it has nothing to do with SW.

    Are you supported by more fans like you?.
    Non fanatic ones ? yes.

    Do you go dressed in Jedi wear to the premiere in your city?.
    I'd rather die :eek:

    Of course, I agree with Nwalme Jade.

    Do the ppl look at you as if you were mad?.
    Here, we are looked as mad because of journalists. But friends and family do not think so.

    Are you supported by more fans like you?.
    Do you go dressed in Jedi wear to the premiere in your city?.

    Look at www.attaquedesfans.com, you will see photos of the French Premiere.
    I wasn't dressed for AOTC release. But I was dressed for The Two Towers :D

    Hardly.... "Oh yeah I know, I really like that Picard guy! What? He´s NOT a Star Wars character?!? Oh..."

    Do you go dressed in Jedi wear to the premiere in your city?.
    NO WAY! I am a Star Wars fan, but I am not THAT weird! ;)

    In Romania there are not so many SW fans that I know about. Even if they are they don't join forums and barely buy SW stuff and toys. That's pretty sad because I can't talk in Romanian with some SW fans from my country.

    Hehehe, I'm the kind of fan that has travelled quite a lot dressed up in my Padme-costumes. Of course I don't see why long flowing skirts and corsetts couldn't be in fashion always.

    Pretty much. They look at me like I'm crazy then ask:

    "Star Wars? You like Star Wars?"

    Duh, didn't I just say so?

    HUMPF, like watching the local soaps is anything good [face_plain]

    I'M IN IRELAND! I love Star Wars, but I don't actually know anyone else who is as into it as I am. Some of my friends like the films, but sadly that's it! They just view me as an eccentric. If I wanna talk about the Expanded Universe the only person who has a clue what I'm on about is my little brother, because I forced him to read the New Jedi Order books.

    Oh no, most people I know think I'm crazy when they discover how much I've already spent on Star Wars

    Yes I'm supported by other fans..you know, in France, we're one big family with cousins everywhere in Europe ;)

    Do I go dressed in Jedi for the movie premiere? No, but I'm seriously considering it for Episode III

    In Poland there are many fanatics who dress themselves in SW clothes (for a premiera of course) and do a lot of weird things (like constructing own R2 unit), but I'm rather not such kind of person. Nevertheles one of my favourite SW fan work is a quite big SW graphitti on the wall next to one of depatrtments of University of Gdansk.
