Lori is the amazing Graphic Designer who has re-designed my blog and made it so amazing! I am so happy to know her and her talents! I am so happy to have been able to finally meet her in real life at SDCC 2014!
Hey there, I'm Lori! I'm an aspiring Graphic/Web designer + illustrator finishing up my senior year in college. By day, I am a cashier for one job and a web developer for another job... By night, I am on geek mode playing video games, reading up on geek blogs, or doing some diy crafts and other art related projects.
The Nerdy Girlie: What is your 1st nerd memory?
Lori: It would probably have to be my first comic con experience which was last year. I felt like I was right at home... I loved being around all the great artists, amazing cosplayers, and getting to meet some great people.
TNG: How and why did you start blogging?
Lori: I've been creating personal blogs for years - But it's always been art related blogs about my work and such. I have sooooo many fandoms from video games to comic books to artists, so I decided to create a blog that I can throw all of that stuff in! ...And then behold, a wild "GirlHero" appeared.
TNG: YOUR favorite blog read?
Lori: I've been slowly coming across reading some geek blogs, but BeingGeekChic is a main one I like to stop by. I love doing crafts so another blog I love to read is called HowAboutOrange. I'm still discovering all these great geek blogs!
TNG: What is your favorite thing/things to nerd out about?
Lori: Lately, it's been Doctor Who! If I hear someone bring up something Doctor Who related or if I see someone flaunting some Doctor Who merchandise I'll perk up with excitement! Same thing with Harry Potter and anything zombie related too.
TNG: Any tips for San Diego Comic Con?
Lori: I've never been to San Diego Comic Con - I hope to go someday! I've been to local comic cons and the most advice I can give is just enjoy every minute of it... Especially if you're going to the San Diego Comic Con! I already know it's a crazy process to even try and get tickets to attend that con, so once you are in I would try and enjoy every second. Meet all the different types of artists there and take as many pictures with all the best cosplayers you see! Just have a fun time and let your inner-geek show :) 'Cause I know there is NO shame at a comic con :]
TNG: Girlie things you love?
Lori: I love video games/comic books/animes/art/anything actually that has a strong female character role in it. I've always been fond of seeing a girl character kick major ass and can fend for herself... Oh, and nail polish. I LOVE painting my nails to certain geeky themes... For instance, when it was the day Doctor Who came back on TV I painted my nails to match the TARDIS :]
