Something I’ll always love about Stanley Pines is he’s always teasing Dipper and Ford about being nerds but half of his interests are super frigging nerdy.
Seriously let’s review here, Stan likes
- Ray Harryhausen-expy movies.
- Old horror movies/monster movies in general.
- A popular children’s cartoon, which he defends as having “a big mystery element and a lot of humor that goes over kids heads.”
- Frank Frazetta-style artwork (as evidenced by his self-portrait in DaMGtMaNSF.)
- Making costumes and SFX makeup for Halloween/Summerween.
- A super costumey period drama
Stan is the biggest nerd-hypocrite in all the lands and it’s adorable.
