Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
My daughter is the essential awesome. She makes everything exciting and puts her own spin on it and while being super kind and interested in other people (she loves to give compliments. She’ll go up to random people and tell them she likes their hair/clothes/anything), she has a sense of self that amazes me. She knows that Batman is better than Superman because Batman uses his brains and that the Doctor’s companions rock because they are brave! She inspired me to write Thaddeus Whiskers and the Dragon, a book about a brave kitten who befriends a dragon and saves a princess.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
Doctor Who Birthday party, Super Hero costumes, binge watching Justice League Unlimited, painting her face in crazy colors, asking to dye her hair red like Black Widow, writing stories about princesses with awesome powers.
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
I’m the Doctor.
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
This rotates based on her fandom of the week, but currently her Black Widow costume. She puts on that, and her baby sister puts on her Elsa costume and her little sister runs around shouting “MAGIC! MAGIC!” while firing imaginary icebolts at her while she does gymnastics.
