    Since I converted, I have not gone without a sombrero in my avatar, and I second your notion! Sombrero haters are no fun.

    it isnt about the hate it is about the fun.
    :)

    i actulally thought about having a party thread in the forum the weekend the movie comes out.

    that is if the mods are ok with it.

    i am also thinking of getting a sombrero to wear.
    i will of course take it off inside the threatre.

    :)

    I'll do my best, explaining sombreros and their relationship to Star Trek absolutely involves a discussion of the BBS and usually an email of a link to this thread.

    I've occasionally seen full size straw sombreros for a buck at "Dollar Tree" and other "Dollar" stores, and they usually stock them for Cinco de Mayo, which means they should be arriving in stores in plenty of time for Trek's May 8th premiere.

    If your local dollar store or party supply store don't normally carry them, Oriental Trading Company's has 24" Adult sized Sombreros for $24.99 per Dozen, and for just a few bucks over regular delivery, you can get them shipped overnight.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that there's no excuse for not wearing a sombrero to Trek's opening weekend.

    There's bound to be a few of those "We're here at the cinema because Star Trek's been released and it's time to talk to a few geeks" news items.

    Two words: Sombrero Subversion.

    Oh yeah.

    :D

    I hope the sombrero thing spreads and it makes E! News. :lol:

    "Trek fans and geeks don...sombreros? For the premiere of the latest movie in the classic franchise. What's the deal with the Mexican attire, Jules?"

    ^ "Sombreroprise = Sombrero + prise"
    Nothin' gets past them.:lol:


    I'm bored, and did a search for Sombreroprise:
    Sombreroprise spotted...
    In Spain
    In Germany
    In South Korea
    In the Middle East


    And then there's this:
    La resistencia es inĂștil. :borg:

    So, the big question, WHO is going to wear a Sombrero to the theater when they go to watch Star Trek ?

    Umm... sorry, but No. Then again, I never wore a costume to a convention either. My ex-fiancee did.
    You can bet I will be there. My brother- who for decades made fun of my love for Trek- is going with me and even offered to buy the tickets!!
    Say what you want, Haters, non-trekkie-geeks are looking forward to this movie!
