The Phoenix Officers


Stefanie Contreras dressed as JubileeOrigin Story:
Stefanie is a marketing manager, fantasy writer, part-time dogsitter, and die-hard Phoenix Comicon fan. She loves to cosplay her favorite characters at con, like Wonder Woman/Elektra/Clara Oswald/something steampunk. Growing up as an avid life-long reader and fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and YA, Stefanie recently began self-publishing her own fantasy book on Chanillo, called Untested. Every month you will find her cheering on the  superstars of the WWE for their pay-per-views. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s probably shaking it in Zumba class.

Origin Story:
Michelle grew up obsessed with a space scoundrel and a little beeping droid, but in secret, as it was not acceptable to be a geek; especially a female geek. Thankfully, times have changed and the geek flag flies with a proud vengeance. Michelle, when not working as a payroll processor, is often binge watching something on Netflix, plotting out her next cosplay with her girlfriends, fangirling over Loki and the Winter Soldier, and contemplating Pinky and the Brain style world domination. An avid reader, her Kindle is always by her bed with at least two books going. She is always up for an event planning or three.

Favorite Fandoms:
Star Wars, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, boy bands (NKOTB for life), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wonder Woman, Disney

Brunch Drink:

Anime Boyfriend:
Trevor Belmont from Castlevania. (Only because I just started watching Anime and Castlevania is the only one I have finished.)

Phoenix officer SaraOrigin Story:
Sara became a geek when she was just a young girl. She started with video games on the Atari and the original NES. She is still quite obsessed with retro gaming. She has an unhealthy obsession with Godzilla and even runs an instagram and Facebook page for her Godzilla’s travel.

Sara enjoys long walks on the beach, cheesy b-rated movies, and gaming until the sun comes up. Her hair is constantly changing, though she is on a rainbow unicorn kick lately.

(Unicorns RULE)

Favorite Fandoms:
Retro Gaming, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Godzilla, Harry Potter, just to name a few.

Brunch Drink:
Fruity mixed drinks or unsweetened ice tea!

Anime Boyfriend:
Godzilla counts right?


Angie-Waite-GGB-Phoenix-OfficerOrigin Story:
Angie didn’t choose the geek life, but the geek life chose her. She was introduced to Star Trek at a young age by her mother and has been a life-long fan of everything Star Trek. Spock was, and always will be her favorite character. She is also one of those few people who are all things Star Wars, too. (Why there even has to be a debate is something she doesn’t understand.) She still remembers watching the original Star Wars in the movie theater at the tender age of 7, and being in awe. While growing up, she spent plenty of time playing Star Wars with her friends, and she was always Princess Leia – her first female role model. Other than spending time with her geeky husband and two sons, she reads everything she can get her hands on, watches movies, writes poetry, dances like no one is watching, and can be quite creative cooking/baking in the kitchen.

Favorite Fandoms:
Star Trek, Star Wars, XMen, Marvel, Disney, The Princess Bride, Stephen King, Supernatural, Peaky Blinders, Downton Abby, Jane Austen, Looney Toons, Animaniacs, Nightmare Before Christmas, Outlander, Dragons, Stargate, British Comedies, horror movies.

Brunch Drink:
Hazelnut Coffee, Iced Mocha Macchiato

Anime Boyfriend:
I don’t really have one, but Loki is my guy any day of the week.
