Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this fangirl?
She is always trying to make life more fun by adding a little “Geek” into everyday life. Growing up, watching classic Star Trek with her Dad was a favorite activity, even going to a Star Trek experience once. But she never really showed her geek side until after High School. Her friends introduced her to Star Wars (all 6 in one day) her senior year and that’s when her fangirl heart began to show. It really grew when she met her husband, he always encouraged her to be herself and to show her love of things no matter what. With his encouragement she really began to express her geek side. Together they have discovered many new things to love, including Doctor Who, her husband does resemble the 10th Doctor to a scary degree. They share their love of Sci-fi and comics to anyone who will listen. Truly a Fangirl and a Fanboy thru and thru.
How does this fangirl express her fandom?
She tries to add a little “Geek Chic” to everyday life. Constantly looking for accessories that express her fandoms to wear to work. If she can’t find what she is looking for she finds a way to make it, creating custom shoes and clothing to wear everyday. On her desk at work sits a TARDIS and a Batman figure, reminding everyone she is a geek. She finds ways to encourage people to show their love of things the same way her husband did for her. By finding fun and creative ways to display her own fandoms in everyday life she has encouraged others to do the same. Currently she and her husband are creating a “Geek Chic” apartment. Hunting down decorations that display their fandoms and even creating a few of their own – they are finding ways to make cool ways for their fandoms to fit into their lives.
