goo Ranking is a large Japanese polling site and in November 2007 over 1k people completed a questionnaire about what they thought an otaku looks like. Here is the top five results for both males and females, the source has the full list.

Q1: What characteristic in males makes you feel he looks like an otaku? (Sample size=1,101)

  • Anime print t-shirt
  • Anime print paper bag
  • Bum Bag/fanny pack
  • Wearing a bandanna around the head in a hachimaki style
  • Bag plastered with anime-related patches, stickers –

Q2: What characteristic in females makes you feel she looks like an otaku? (Sample size=1,101)

  • Anime print paper bag
  • Anime print t-shirt
  • Gothic-Lolita fashion
