Name of Fangirl: Denise
What is her Fangirl interest?
Cosplay, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Sailor Moon, Disney.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
I don’t hide my “nerdy” side around anyone. People at work come to me with questions about conventions and costuming, and I am always happy to help them out. The same goes for people who approach me with questions online or at cons as well; I love being able to share what I have learned over the years with others, as well as hear their tips and ideas.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
I love making costumes and going to conventions, whether I am speaking as a panelist or simply attending as an audience member. I believe the cosplay community can be a wonderful tool for spreading knowledge about various crafts, as well as for helping each other out — in costume-related dilemmas as well as personal struggles.
I also was a member of an Atlanta based Doctor Who club, Atlanta Gallifreyans, until my recent move to Florida.
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
“Keep moving forward.” — Disney’s Meet the Robinsons
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
My sewing machine! It was the first thing on my ‘to pack’ list, and my last thing to actually get packed up when I recently moved.
