The Chicago Officers

Growing up she was obsessed with becoming a sailor scout and spent time wondering if Goku will ever defeat Vegeta. She is a huge Harry Potter fan and still dreams of marrying Draco Malfoy one day. She is a dancer and studying Lyra as another creative outlet (and an excuse to wear nerdy leggings). When Mercedes is not reading comic books and trashy supernatural romance novels she also runs a lifestyle blog where she posts about her geeky life and events. You can often catch her at conventions in the Chicago land area.

Taylor aka Tay Maria
Tay was destined to become a geek from a young age. One of her earliest memories was watching Star Wars on the living room floor and deciding that she would marry Han Solo when she grew up.
From there it spiraled into reading Marvel comics, writing fanfiction, designing costumes of her favorite characters, and deciding that she wanted to be a Forensic Pathologist (much like Dana Scully).
Now, Tay works as an Event Planner for a company that does all things Doctor Who – even running conventions! In addition, she has a Psychology degree, has studied Fashion Marketing, is an avid cosplayer, and has been published in books about fandoms from Doctor Who to Star Trek. Tay is a proud resident of the Bucktown neighborhood in Chicago. She aspires to live a geek chic life everyday!
