Name of Fangirl: Steph
Fangirl’s Occupation: I work as a computer technician for a large tech company!
What is her Fangirl interest?
My Fangirl interests are classic fantasy novels, and sci-fi movies and TV shows! I love Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance but also Star Trek and Stargate SG-1. I’m absolutely crazy about The Elder Scrolls series and can’t wait to see what province the next title will take place in. 🙂
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
I decided to shine the spotlight because Fangirls didn’t get much exposure when I was growing up, and I often felt different and weird for loving fantasy and sci-fi worlds as much as I did. It’s important to me now to be proud of who I am and be a role model for other young Fangirls!
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
I express my fandom at all of the cons I can get to! I love to cosplay at Emerald City Comicon here in Seattle, as well as Norwescon and Sakuracon. I’ll be at the first showing of The Force Awakens in IMAX 3D, and I love to have TV and movie marathons with my friends. 🙂
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
My favorite quote is from Carl Sagan – “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”
This quote reminds me to challenge what I’m told and always look for the facts and scientific research behind popular opinion.
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
I can’t live without my bookcases. I’ve spent so many years building my collection, and looking at them is like looking at a mirror. I can build new costumes and find cool new art at cons.
