Name of Fangirl: Liberty Rose
Fangirl’s School Grade: 2nd
What is her Fangirl interest?
Star Wars, Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Buffy and Angel, and Supernatural if mom would ever let her watch it and not just hear about it!
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
Sometimes I think it may be harder for my daughter to like the same type of things I did as a kid in the 70’s. Comics and Star Wars were just normal kid stuff to me, but these days she often has to defend her interest in these things- and sometimes just because its not girl stuff. I also have to commend her on her resistance of all things Star Trek no matter how hard dad tries to convince her they’re cool!
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
Costumes, costumes and more costumes. We also have to make t-shirts ourselves since apparently making a girls shirt with Guardians, Star Wars or superheroes (in Canada, I do sometimes find them if we do some shopping in America) on it is just not going to happen. We have a nice collection that includes Gamora, Elita and Optimus, and Princess Leia.
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
She likes her (mine!) Princess Leia “Barbie” doll.
