Official Philly Chapter Launch:
Jurassic Brunch (Yay dinosaurs!)
MEET OUR GEEKY OFFICERS
Feliza is passionately geeky about manga, anime, superhero stories, and reading science fiction. She spends most of her time writing and editing at Girls in Capes. When she’s not working, she’s pretending to work by reading too much manga and watching too much anime (“because I can write about it on the site,” she says). She thinks she’s most likely to die getting buried under her gigantic pile of to-be-read books when she tries to pull out one from the bottom and topples it over.
Geeky Top Ten: Wonder Woman, Inuyasha, magical girls, mecha, Teen Titans, sci-fi novels, Captain America movies, shoujo manga, cosplay, light novels
Brunch Drink of Choice: *is a brunch n00b so doesn’t have one yet*
After crash landing her spacecraft near Philadelphia, PA, Lexi has almost fully assimilated to life on earth. When she is not at her day job, she spends her time as a volunteer translator for the Organization of Transformative Works, working on her pet website project as an amateur front-end web developer, practicing survival skills for the zombie apocalypse, hula hooping, finding her way to the front row at concerts, cooking dinner with friends, putting together cosplays, and of course, obsessing over her favorite fictional Earth stories…and trying to meet other Earthlings who love the same things! She is a big fan of meeting new people and trying new things…especially if brunch is involved.
Geeky Top Ten: Sherlock Holmes, the Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Supernatural, horror genre, Star Wars, DC & Marvel comics, Hannibal, Miyazaki…
Brunch Drink of Choice: Irish coffee and/or mimosas
Anime Boyfriend: Afro Samurai
Susan spends her days cuddling Ewoks, practicing her Jedi skills and dreaming about flying the Millennium Falcon. When she’s not busy on adventures through time and space she’s usually planning her next fangirl OOTD and pretending she’s a Disney princess.

Susan has a big passion for health and fitness and its always looking for fun ways to add some nerdy flair to her recipes and workouts! (If you ever want a running buddy, she’s the droid you’re looking for.)
