Favorite Convention: Pax

Favorite Real Geek Female: Felicia Day, Tina Fey and Abby Dark Star

Favorite Fictional Geek Female: That’s way too many to list. My cosplays are generally of my favorite characters. Ana from Frozen is my spirit animal, Princess Leia, Lady Sif and Dana Scully are among my all-time favorites.

What makes you a Geek Goddess: I made my first “cosplay” by hand about 15 years ago before I knew cosplay was actually a thing. It was terrible but I was so proud at the time and have been making costumes since. I spend far too many hours playing video games (mostly PC). I will get completely lost to the outside world and before I know it, the weekend is over and I’ve accomplished nothing other than many completed quests or built an entire house (I play a lot of Minecraft…) I’m also a comic book nerd. Batman and Thor are my favorites (Thor since I saw Adventures in Babysitting when I was little). Whenever I travel I always feel like if someone were to randomly find my carryon luggage they would assume it was a grandma and her grandson since I always bring knitting or crocheting, comics and my Marvel coloring books. I’m also a huge fan of horror movies, shows, video games, etc. I can’t sleep with the closet open, covers off or without checking under the bed first but I still love them.

What are your nerdy little secrets: Does this count?

Favorite Character to Cosplay: Oh man, they are all my favorite. Poison Ivy is definitely one I enjoy doing many variations of.

Dream Cosplay: That is also a very long list. My dream is more to have the funds and time to make the very complex ones.

Favorite Food: Peanut butter, chocolate and sushi. Not together. That’s gross.

Favorite Movie: Star Wars, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ghost Busters, Stardust

Favorite TV Show: X-Files, Family Guy, Farscape, Star Trek

Favorite Color: Purple and something that falls in-between tiffany blue and seafoam green

Favorite Style of Panties: Boyshorts all the way-I tend to not wear pants at home and boyshorts make me feel slightly less awkward if my neighbors happen to notice.

Dream Geek Goddess Set: Something under water. It’d be hard to pull off a whole set, but would be awesome if done well.
