Sabah

Origin Story:  Sabah is an animal-loving,
pun-making, former military, black-belted, yoga enthusiast who also happens to be an attorney.  She has bounced around the East Coast for the last 30 years or so, and just couldn’t seem to stay away from Cleveland, so she just accepted the inevitable.  She first got into all things geeky through Power Rangers, which lead to karate lessons, which lead to Batman, and then pretty much everything else just flowed from there.

Geeky Loves: Batman, the Dresden Files, Black Mirror, Doctor Who, the ENTIRE Marvel Cinematic Universe, puns, improv, Victorian novels, elaborate costumes, crafting—pretty much everything other than video games (She’s really embarrassingly terrible at them!)

Brunch Drink: Bloody Mary

Geeky Boyfriend: Ben Wyatt from Parks and Rec

Amanda

Origin Story: Amanda is an uber geek with a dangerous amount of free time. She’s a disabled stay at home mom who also loves to craft, learn and consume an unnatural amount of fandom related materials. Some of her copious amounts of spare time is spent with her husband Greg, daughter Prudence, and two cats Charlotte, and Victoria. Amanda is most certainly a crazy cat lady. Each August she participates in the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen (GISHWHES). And each November she embarks on the nearly impossible task of writing a 50,000 word novel in just 31 days!

Amanda hopes to spread her joy in Geeky pursuits with as many people as she can!

Geeky Loves: Doctor Who (especially the 8th Doctor in his Big Finish audio dramas), Minecraft, Supernatural, Welcome to Night Vale, The Walking Dead, and in general anything Sci Fi especially audiobooks.

Brunch Drink: Whatever unique non Alcoholic drink is on the menu!

Geeky Boyfriend: Josh Groban, John Barrowman, David Tennant, Weird Al.

Darlene

Origin Story:  By day, Darlene works for a local health insurance company. But, on some nights and weekends, you can find her getting her geek on at conventions – sometimes on both sides of the table! She’s been attending conventions for over 20 years, and the last 5 as a vendor with Miniworld Entertainment. Sci Fi and Horror are her favorites, and even though she likes anime, it’s her kryponite. But, is learning to overcome it.
She is also a part-time fur Mom to her boyfriend’s 2 cats, and loves meeting and making new friends when she’s on the road. She also loves traveling and trying new foods, so life on the road is perfect for her.
Going to the Ghoulardi Fest in Cleveland, many years ago, to meet the actors who played Don West and Judy Robinson from the original Lost in Space series made her initially fall in love with conventions. Listening to back stories at The Women of Trek Convention panels had her hooked. And, has been going to conventions ever since.
Geeky Loves: Game of Thrones, Battlestar Galactica (original and new), Star Trek, Star Wars, the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Lucifer, Timeless, movies (anything horror, sci fi, action, and drama), Batman, Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen, Simon’s Cat, Cards Against Humanity,True Blood, Animaniacs, and Pinky and the Brain.
Brunch Drink: Screw Driver (Absolute and OJ)
Geeky Boyfriend: Jason Isaacs, Ryan Reynolds, George Clooney, Karl Urban

Geeky Loves: cosplay, anime, sci-fi, fantasy, Disney, board/tabletop games, video games, role play, comics, etc.
