-   2. Costumes (particularly crushed velvet and circlets)
Good question, there was actually a witchvox article asking why an unfortunately large number of pagans dress in Renn Faire garb for their ceremonies.

-   3. The ‘High Priest’ and ‘High Priestess’ thing
The terms were coined back in a time when many neo pagan groups were emerging and were grabbing terms not only that described the position but were "official" and sounded grand.  Remember many neo-pagan groups have their initial roots in the Victorian era and the position titles reflect that.

-   4. Pagan books
??  Specifics ??

-   5. Strange dirty old men
What better place for strange people to hang out than small often semi-secretive groups.

-   6. ‘Live Action Role Play’ geeks
These are often people who are hoping that real life pagan religions will be like their favorite fantasy books/tv/movie.  Most give it up quickly when they realize fantasy is just that.

-   7. Meat eaters
Already taken care of ad nausium

-   8. Crystals
Usage varies widely.

-   9. Pagans who rave about ‘Fluffy Bunnies’
Because fluffy bunnies tend to do a really good job of propogating (just like real bunnies).  Though in this case they're often propogating incorrect info, and do so in the most public manner possible.

-   10. The constant complaining about Christianity
Most of us have had really bad experiences with Christianity.  It's also annoying whenever the majority automatically (and often ignorantly) plows ahead and over the minority, with such righteous justification and/or abandon.

-   11. Beards and long hair
For me it's a connection to my roots (pun intended).  My ancestors (the Celts) were quite renown for their moustaches and beards.

-   12. The prevalence of people who need more exercise
This one is not any different than other religious groups.  At the risk of being seen as anti-christian, if the body is the temple of the holy spirit; there are some cathedrals out there.

-   13. Swords
I'm a blacksmith, I MAKE swords.  I have lots.
