Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this fangirl?
At one of Disney World’s Star Wars Weekends, Erich Schoeneweiss texted me from Jason Fry’s book signing telling me I needed to come over and meet the group of young ladies who had just gone through the line. The Lady Rogues were wearing their X-wing flightsuit dresses, and we spent over thirty minutes fangirling about our favorite characters from the Star Wars Expanded Universe – Tahiri, Tenel Ka, and Jaina – and squealing at some sneak peeks of artwork from The Essential Reader’s Companion. Jesse, Kat, Ilene, and Heather are exuberant about expressing their geek pride. They exemplify what a fan community can be: fun experiences with friends.
