A decade of Internet superstars: where are they no...
<b>Randy Constan: "Peter Pan"</b> <br>Take a too-small Robin Hood costume, add a Prince Valiant haircut, and you have Randy Constan, the guy at the center of <a href="http://www.pixyland.org/peterpan" target="_blank">Peter Pan's Home Page</a> — 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 <a href="http://www.bfro.net/" target="_blank">Bigfoot Field Researchers</a> and <a href="http://www.weirdnj.com/" target="_blank">Weird N.J.</a> to capture the coveted <a href="http://www.webbyawards.com/webbys/winners-2001.php?y=2001" target="_blank">Webby Award for Best Weird Site</a> of the year.<br> But the man in green was just warming up. The next step was to turn a page of his bully pulpit into a <a href="http://www.pixyland.org/peterpan/iso_tinkerbell.html" target="_blank">Mr. Lonelyhearts outreach project</a>, detailing his search for a like-minded lady. His unusual approach earned Constan viral status and even time on late-night television.<br> Rest assured, Constan has <a href="http://pixyland.org/peterpan/dorothy1.html" target="_blank">found his Tinkerbell</a>, 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.<br> 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.
