Name: Shelly L.
Location: Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada
Bio: I have been a fangirl since I could watch Spiderman on TV. I have seen every episode of the old Spiderman cartoons probably a dozen times and I still watch them. I am also a big Doctor Who fan ever since I saw the Third Doctor (and I’m talking the real Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee).
If you could live in any fictional place, where would it be?
The obvious answer is aboard the TARDIS with the Doctor. I could see all of time and space, how wonderful! And think what good shape I would be in from all that running from aggressive life forms! (The Doctor shuns the word “monsters”).
If you could cosplay any character, who would it be?
I would love to play Jabe of the Forest of Cheem. She is a Doctor Who character from a Ninth Doctor episode and she is gorgeous. She is played by Yasmin Bannerman who is, of course, gorgeous herself. I read that she was not as impressed as I with the Jabe costume. She thought she looked ugly…there is no way that woman could look ugly, she is so beautiful. Jabe is a really cool tree-woman dressed in a beautiful full-length gown. I would love to cosplay her.
How do you subtly (or not-so-subtly!) work your fandom into everyday life?
My computer room / art studio is brimming with Doctor Who, Spiderman, Fantasy, even Peanuts believe it or not. Plus all my figurines and I have a thing for clocks, especially unusual clocks like binary, anniversary, light, and a bunch more. I am an artist and I can make lots of excuses to draw, paint, or whatever, my fantasy characters. I have a huge T-Shirt collection (my husband just rolls his eyes when I buy another one). I have mostly Doctor Who but I also have Spiderman and Batman, in fact, one of my favorite shirts is a Batman shirt. I also have Who jewelry, I had a really cute Dalek but my cat stole it! I wear a little TARDIS almost all the time. I get a lot of comments about it.
