What is her fangirl interest?
I absolutely love video games. My favorite games include Pokemon Silver, Gears of War 3, Resident Evil 4, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Dishonored, and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.
I’m also an avid cosplayer and dress up for most conventions. I’ve made costumes of Aela the Huntress from Skyrim, Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, and many more.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this fangirl?
I run a video game fashion blog called Console to Closet where I create stylish outfits inspired by gaming characters. I want to create an online environment that’s free of gender inequality, stereotypes, and negativity, where gamers can share in their passion and hopefully get some inspiration on bringing their hobby into their everyday life through fashion.
How does this fangirl express her fandom?
I showcase my gaming passion through fashion. Almost every day I wear outfits that are inspired by gaming characters. Most people wouldn’t know that I love gaming right off the bat, but spend more than 5 minutes with me and it will definitely come up in conversation.
What is her favorite fangirl item that she cannot live without?
I can’t live without my Xbox 360. I game mostly on that system and it’s really become the hub of my living room.
