What makes you a fangirl ? My passion for the love of all things geek, sci-fi related material. I’m not just your average fan girl either. I love to cosplay and bring the characters to life.
When did you first know you were a fangirl ? I would have to say since I first saw Star Wars on the big screen back in New York. I was six years old.
What are some current fangirl things that you are in to ? Love to cosplay, read comics and attend conventions
Whats your best geek memory ? When George Perez announced that he created a character on behalf of my name in his issue of Superman #5
What was your craziest geek moment ? When I first went to San Diego Comic Con and wore my Batgirl costume for the first time. I didn’t anticipate getting such an overwhelming reaction from the crowd.
Whats the best part about being a fangirl ? The best part for me would have to be the feeling I get when a fresh new issue of my favorite comic comes out on the stands 😀
What part of geekdom have you not been a part of, but would like to get in to ? I’m not a big Anime Fan but I do know a few that are involved in the industry. Not too sure if I’ll be cosplaying as anything related to that genre.. but you never know.
Any last words ? YES! Don’t hold back! Listen to your inner geek and be passionate about your fandom!
