Name of the Fangirl: Sarah
Fangirl’s Occupation: Mum
What is her fangirl interest?
Costuming! Firefly/Serenity, Stargate, Star Wars, Red Dwarf, Halo, Borderlands, and so on.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this fangirl?
I met my partner through a Star Wars costuming group, and as we got to know each other more our geekiness grew. I pulled him further into the world of costuming, and he pulled me further into the world of gaming.
I am active in the cosplay community, not just in my own work but also striving to help others create costumes to reflect their own passions.
How does this fangirl express her fandom?
A member of the 501st Legion, a costumer (cosplayer), and actively seeking to encourage others to embrace and express themselves. I’m also a gamer, a seamstress, and a wearer of geeky tees.
Years before our daughter was born, my partner and I read a series of sci-fi books by Elizabeth Moon called Vatta’s War. We both knew then that our first daughter would be named Kylara after the main character from that series.
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
Its a slight abbreviation of a quote from Yoda.
The other is “Do or do not, there are no worries.” (Yoda / Timon + Pumbaa)
What is her favorite fangirl item that she cannot live without?
Sewing machine. It’s a close tie between laptop/Xbox/sewing machine, but without my machine there would be no costumes. It is my happy place.
