What is her Fangirl interest?
Anything Marvel – her favorite is Peggy Carter.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
Amanda not only cosplays as Peggy Carter – she is an ‘old soul’ that loves the 40s. She really ‘feels’ her character, too. When the 1st episode of Agents of Shield previewed Peggy Carter – she cried. She listens to the ’40s on 4′ on Sirius. We have a ’65 Mustang and she dresses in pinup attire for car shows and cruise nights.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
She attends Anime LA and San Diego ComicCon. Last year she cosplayed as Peggy Carter and her photo shows up for Agent Carter twitter images. She was very particular about her uniform – it had to be authentic. She even found a locket that had a tiny flag on it which she thought was “era appropriate” and put Steve’s picture in it. She found a WWII jacket on ebay that fit her perfectly.
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
“Be yourself – unashamedly.”
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
Her red lipstick
