Geek Girl Brunch-Philadelphia
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, Star Wars, DC & Marvel comics, Supernatural, Miyazaki, Sons of Anarchy…
Brunch Drink of Choice: Irish coffee and/or mimosas
Anime Boyfriend: Afro Samurai
Reem is a south jersey native getting her phD in Philadelphia. She spends her days in the laboratory and her nights usually at home with a good book.

Geeky Top Ten: Doctor Who, comic books, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Neil Gaiman, Sherlock, Harry Potter, Disney, The Simpsons

Anime Boyfriend: L from Death Note
Emi is a geeky grad student studying publishing in the Philly area. She is also the founder of Oktopus Ink, an indie publishing company dedicated to publishing young adult sci-fi & fantasy novels featuring diverse characters. Growing up, she fervently believed that on her eleventh birthday she would receive her acceptance letter to Hogwarts and when she didn’t, decided that she would become a Pokémon Master instead. (Although she still looks for post on Sundays.) When not buried under a mountain of homework or manuscripts, she obsesses about Walt Disney World, watches anime, and spends more time than she cares to admit thinking about dragons. Some days she wishes she was a dinosaur.
Geeky Top Ten: young adult novels, Disney, Pokémon, Godzilla, AtLA/LoK, Harry Potter (Gryffindor pride!), Kill la Kill, Love Live! School Idol Project, Settlers of Catan, castles
Brunch Drink of Choice: Mimosa (keepin’ it classic~)
