Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
I wanted to nominate my Wife because she’s become a Fangirl probably because of me. I say probably because I believe the Fangirl was always in her and I just helped bring it out. She’s always been a big fan of Barbie and has a collection of over 500 dolls. We’ve been together for 23yrs. We went to our 1st con together when we were 1st dating and discovered that we both liked and loved the “geek” culture before geek culture was even a thing. She quickly became a fan of the comic world (especially Stan Lee). We would go on toy hunts together and then we started costuming together.We even started a costume group with some friends called Mandalorian Mash-Ups. At our wedding the tables were labeled with Star Wars planets and Barbie dolls, and the cake was decorated with Star Wars weapons /helmets , Barbie accessories and Han Solo and Barbie as a cake topper. She’s my wife and my best friend and the only person in the world that would go on these crazy fan adventures with me.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
She’s goes to as many local cons as we can, most of the time in costume. She’s only missed one Star Wars Celebration. She has a rotating display of her favorites Barbie Dolls throughout the year and is always on the hunt for bargains at comic shows and buys comics for our nieces and nephews to encourage the Fangirl or boy in them.
