Can someone explain the fairy/pixie thing?

I just don't get it.

A fair number of cars in SoCal (usually female) have a Tinkerbell sticker or something on their rear window.

Is this like a club or something? A cult?

Where's the equality? The faeries are never pissing on Chevy/Ford logos.

hehe - I googled it and there are other people wondering the same thing - and with no real answer.

However, I did find this.

Tinkerbell is often perceived as a cute little flirt with a bit of attitude. If you see that sticker on a car, it's your cue that you've either found someone fun, or someone that you can't handle (depending on your personality).

If it's being driven by a guy... I'd make tracks the opposite direction.

If you pull up next to them with your interior light on, and your drivers side rear window halfway down, they will know are cool and give you pixie sticks.

I usually just show them my own pixie stick.

That works too, but you seldom get free candy with your method.

True... Once they realize i already have candy they seem less inclined to share...

If you put both of those dresses together, it makes my dress. Hmmmm...maybe I'm a part of the Tinkerbell cult, and I wasn't aware of it.

I once saw a window sticker on a car in Verona, Italy, that read, "Bimbo en auto". I imagine that "Bimbo" was short for "Bambino", but I still wanted to get a few for friends back home!

holy bejeezus that's frightening

Looking at 'his' website, I see he's into the whole renaissance thingy. Maybe that explains some of these peoples (as well as USA Zorro's idea).

That reminds me of a time my wife and had taken our (then) 3 year old to a local park. We were in an opening surrounded by trees, etc., when this group of about 20-30 comes strolling in from one of the trails. Fully dressed in their renaissance gear (Lord and Lady dooshbag I presume?) they proceed to 'interact' with each other in costume. Hilarious and a bit scary at the same time. This went on for an hour or so. Apparently the Drama Club is alive and well post high school.

good times.

that is odd!

Ganguro appeared as a new fashion style in Japan in the early 1990s and is prevalent mostly among teenage girls and girls in their early 20's to this date. In ganguro fashion, a deep tan is combined with hair dyed in shades of orange to blonde, or a silver gray known as "high bleached". Black ink is used as eyeliner and white concealer is used as lipstick and eyeshadow. False eyelashes, plastic facial gems, and pearl powder are often added to this. Platform shoes and brightly-colored outfits complete the ganguro look. Also typical of ganguro fashion are tie-dyed sarongs, miniskirts, stickers on the face, and lots of bracelets, rings, and necklaces.
