Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this fangirl?
I’m not afraid to let my geekiness shine in my day-to-day life. I’m sort of known as “That Doctor Who Girl with All the Costumes” at work.
I’m also happy to help other fans in any way I can, whether it’s lending my voice to panels at conventions, or helping track down a costume piece for a cosplay.
How does this fangirl express her fandom?
I started out being a panelist at local sci-fi conventions and help run a local Doctor Who fangroup before getting bit by the cosplay bug.
Now I work on creating costumes of my own and finding resources for other cosplayers. Cosplay is about helping each other and having fun, no matter your age, weight, or race. I’m a big believer that anyone can cosplay!
I also have a blog where I feature geek-inspired outfits (Twin Peaks, Indiana Jones, Dark Shadows) as well as chronicle my cosplay adventures at conventions.
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
“Life is many days.” – James Joyce
What is her favorite fangirl item that she cannot live without?
Doctor Who blends of tea from Adagio.
