The NYC Officers

Yissel

Co-Founder of GeekGirlBrunch, Omelet connoisseur, Superhero Stylist

Origin Story: After graduating from FIT with a bachelor’s in Women’s Sportswear, Yissel landed an internship abroad with renowned costume designer Edna Mode. Under her tutilage Yissel learned the all important rules to designing for superheroes: NO CAPES! Later she founded Fashion + Geekery, a love letter to high fashion and the geek worlds that inspire it. It was while working in Milan, she discovered just how far the New York City institution of brunch had spread. There was something to this eggs and booze thing that was bringing people together even across the pond.  But who could she talk to there about Harry Potter…?

Brunch Drink: Mimosas. Bonus if it’s an unexpected twist on one.

Rachel

Co-Founder of GeekGirlBrunch, Sassy Sardaukar, Gozer Go-fer, Sith for Hire, Queen of Pyke

Origin Story: Rachel spent her formative years on the Death Star, a rising force in the minion pool who dreams of one day achieving her own evil lair of evil. Now she spends most of her time in Westeros rooting for the badguys at FireandLunch. When not plotting to take over the galaxy she can be found vacationing on Arrakis. (IRL she’s a blogger and cosplayer who buys an alarming amount of spandex and over analyzes her favorite shows. She loves talking cosplay shop, watching terrible action movies and lives in an apartment selected in no small part for its proximity to a Lego store.)

Geeky Top Ten: Star Wars, Dune, ASoIaF, Star Trek, Farscape, The Foreigner novels by CJ Cherryh, LOTR,  Harry Potter, Avatar: The Last Airbender and anything Miyazaki (but Nausicaa is her favorite).
