There is something amazing about fandoms today and part of that is wearing symbols of our fandom. By wearing a symbol of our fandom we can take a piece of that world and bring it into ours. When we consume the media that holds the world of our fandom we temporarily enter that world wherever that might be. At the same time when we are done consuming we remember the things from that world, but our time in that world is done. These symbols of our fandom help us to stay connected to that world as well as a way to, without speaking, invite others into the world because we can wear a glimpse of that world on our person.
