Girls sometimes sport pale lip tints, dark eyeshadow a la' Edie Sedgewick, while guys are often into hats and caps. Vision-challenged art-nerds often lean towards retro or nerd style glasses, many owning more than two pairs of specs. Fashion influences come from Librarian, Nerdcore, Geek, Punk, 60's and Edwardian.

There is a different between Geeks and nerds. Geeks may try, but they do not work to their full capability and are obsessed with electronics. nerds care about life and think of the future and become very successful.^^

This updated version of the classic nerd comes equipped with an appreciation for music, fine art, and food. While not losing touch with his nerd heritage, the hip nerd is more socially accepted and able to matriculate into mainstream society by combining a love of technology with witty conversation and self-deprecating humor. Often underestimated in high school and college, the hip nerd often rises to the top rungs of society, winning the hearts of otherwise unobtainable women.
Examples of a hip nerd include Peter Gibbons, Chuck Bartowski, Robert Stephens

I am very proud to be an indie nerd.
A person who identifies themselves/or is identified as a T&S nerd, is someone who has an unhealthy obsession with the Canadian rock band called Tegan and Sara. They refuse to have an "obsession", and categorize it as an admiration or fascination.
They know every quote, have memorized every lyric, belong to .ca and teganandsarabanter.com, they have seen virtually every youtube video on tegan and sara, and have educated themselves to the point of knowing every story tegan or sara has ever told on stage or in an interview.
There are entire international communities of these people, and they are usually lesbians, as both tegan and sara gay. However, they refuse to admit that the reason they listen to T&S is because of their homosexuality. They will often wear tegan and sara merch, the newly released shoes, own pieces of emy storey's art, cut their hair like tegan and sara, or listen to other bands that are affiliated with T&S. These people are far more numerous than originally predicted.
Kate - Hey, did you see Kelly's new hair cut?
Anne - Yea, she is such a t&s nerd, she wears that jacket everyday too!
usually influenced at a young age by older anime such as pokemon, sailor moon, card captor sakura, and yugioh. (your average popular high school student probably watched two or three of these as a child. they grew up to become obsessed with society's opinions.) an anime nerd is simply someone who doesn't give a shit what other people think and has not lost sight of their inner child. their appearance can range from ugly to the most beautiful girl/guy you have ever seen. they have respect for the art form that is anime. once or twice a year they may spend their time at an anime convention making money or having fun (meeting new people, hanging out with friends, etc.). an anime nerd knows how to enjoy life (unlike some people). an anime nerd could be the person living next door. they could be the bag boy/girl at your grocery store. they could be your high school english teacher. they could be the man/woman you married twenty years ago.
remember, nerds are people too. and the majority of them have lives others are too stupid to accept. haven't you ever heard "don't judge a book by its cover"?
