A decade of Internet superstars: where are they now?
Whatever happened to the Evolution of Dance guy or that kid who loved Britney Spears so much he cried for her under his sheet? We'll fill you in on what happened to them and other Web celebrities when their 15 minutes of fame ended.
Randy Constan: "Peter Pan" Take a too-small Robin Hood costume, add a Prince Valiant haircut, and you have Randy Constan, the guy at the center of Peter Pan's Home Page — a Web site devoted to Constan's love of all things Pan. His first brush with fame came in 2001 when he swept aside such formidable challengers as Bigfoot Field Researchers and Weird N.J. to capture the coveted Webby Award for Best Weird Site of the year. But the man in green was just warming up. The next step was to turn a page of his bully pulpit into a Mr. Lonelyhearts outreach project, detailing his search for a like-minded lady. His unusual approach earned Constan viral status and even time on late-night television. Rest assured, Constan has found his Tinkerbell, and she definitely shares his fondness for faerie — and his fashion sense, too. "We both love to spread joy through our costuming, wherever we go," Constan says. Costumes aside, Costan independently sells his music — donating much of the proceeds to children's charities, he says — and works a day job in computer software and electronic design. (Casual Fridays must be an eyeful.) Guess a little pixie dust sometimes goes a long way.
