GlitzyGeekGirl! The name describes me perfectly. I am a hairstylist that loves fashion, makeup and new trends. But I am also very geeky! When I am not at the salon or shopping, I am probably on my computer playing online games or updating my blog. I enjoy being glitzy and geeky by doing cosplay. It's so much fun to bring a character to life and design their outfit for a comic convention. My favorite part of cosplaying is creating DIY tutorials for my readers. I also love to post pictures of my cat, Pixie!
The Nerdy Girlie: What is your 1st nerd memory?
Anna: Growing up, I would watch my older brother play video games. So most of my childhood was spent playing Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, and Sonic with him. Then he introduced me to PC games, and we still to this day play and talk about games together!
TNG: How and why did you start crafting and crocheting?
Anna: I have always had an admiration for art. I can't say I can draw, sculpt or paint well, but I am pretty good at being crafty. Mostly, I enjoy taking something pre-made and altering or recycling it to become something different. My mom taught me how to use a sewing machine, crochet, and do other handy craft tricks. Recently, I have learned a lot since I picked up cosplaying as a hobby.
TNG: What are some of your favorite nerdy blogs?
TNG: Do you favorite Etsy shop?
Anna: My current favorite is GeekOUTlet. I want one of everything from their shop!
TNG: What is your favorite thing/things to nerd out about?
Anna: I fangirl over good books. I'm major into Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, etc .. Right now I'm hooked on The Mortal Instruments. I love to read books over and over again, dress up for the movie's midnight showings, and collect t-shirts and other memorabilia. This is also true for a couple of TV shows like The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and Game of Thrones.
TNG: Any tips for San Diego Comic Con?
Anna: My dream is to attend SDCC...and hopefully it will happen next year! I've already got my membership on the website so I can actually get a badge this time (I didn't know about the memberships until a few weeks ago so tip number one is make sure you're registered). Also make sure to bring a poster tube. I learned this from the Dallas Comic Con this year. I had to buy one for some autographs I got, took it home, then bought more autographs the next day and had to buy another poster tube! So invest in one and don't forget it!
