Tenitia

20161119_204117-1
Origin Story: A native West Tennessean, Tenitia is a Trekkie 4 lyfe, novice cosplayer, general lab lackey, sometimes pirate, and loves getting her geek on! For her there are few things better than getting fully lost in the universe of amazing book, movie, or tv show. Outside of nerddom, most of Tenitia’s time is taken up volunteering at local theaters, and working as a lab tech/assistant while she finishes a degree in Medical Lab Sciences. Mad Scientist may or may not be the ultimate goal here, she refuses to confirm or deny.

Geeky faves: Star Trek, Harry Potter, Horror, Cosplay, Steven Universe, Once Upon a Time, Musicals, Bitch Planet, X-Men, Ms Marvel, Buffy

Brunch drink: Mimosas

Fictional bff: Regina from Once Upon a Time

Terri

Origin Story: Terri has been accused since kindergarten (not inaccurately) of reading anything that has “words in a row”…We think perhaps she is the spawn of a time traveler and the librarian from Alexandria. An only child, books were her companions and her imagination was a rich place to live. She grew up in a family that indulged her creativity and became a believer in Fairies, a lover of Star Trek and Doctor Who, a writer of poems and short stories and eventually a cosplayer. She is Bella DuBalle’s “Fairy Drag Mama” and she is the costumer and all around theater tech geek for a few local theater groups. She also acts on occasion.

Brunch drink: Grapefruit Mimosas from the Second Line.

Fictional boyfriend: Montgomery Scott

Current obsessions: DRAG, theater and cosplay of all genres but especially Pirate (both conventional and airship…big fan of Steampunk)…currently working on perfecting Agatha Heterodyne.

Undying Favorites: Star Trek TOS and TNG, Doctor Who (Tom Baker is her first Doctor), Star Wars (the original trilogy), Douglass Adams Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy 5 book “Trilogy” and the Dirk Gently series (How excited are we for the show?!?), Piers Anthony novels, especially the Incarnations of Immortality series, the 5 book series Bio of a Space Tyrant and the first dozen or so Xanth novels. She is into the web comic “Girl Genius” in a big way.

Jennifer

Origin Story: My life is spent doing what I love, teaching. I enjoy teaching and introducing my students to the awesome world of Anime. I tend to Geek Out with my students.

Overall a huge Star Wars fan, but I also venture over into the Next Generation Universe as well.
My dogs are amazing and they keep me busy. I live in a really cool haunted house and have pretty much learned home repair from scratch. Need a bathtub installed or a fence built?? I have been there and done that.

Origin Story: A child of the 70s, Carol’s first cosplay was Princess Leia made of bedsheets. At that young age, she was happy there was a girl part so the neighborhood boys would let her play Star Wars with them. A women of the oughts, Carol now knows that all parts are girl parts. Carol is a founding member of the Mid-South Buccaneers, a pirate group that lends flair and cannons to events in the Memphis area. Her guilty pleasure is Charmed and the Winx Club. Pamela Aldon is her spirit animal.

Brunch drink: Classic Bloody Mary

Fictional boyfriend: Chris Stephens (Northern Exposure)

Current obsessions: Westworld, Jessica Jones, The Fall and books, all books. Really looking forward to Wonder Women movie and the new adaption of the Handmaid’s Tale
