A writer of words. A dancer of dreams. A pop culture blogger, podcaster and lecturer with a special interest in fairy tales and space opera. A feminist and a fashionista. A teacher and a student. A Social Justice Klingon Warrior Princess who fell in love with the Skywalker family when I was seven years old. Mother of girls. Secretly a dragon.
♙ Anika is a self-proclaimed manic pixie dream girl and doesn’t see anything wrong with it.
What can I do for you?
Blogs and Podcasts
I have been contributing to various blogs and podcasts for over a decade. My main topics and interests are feminism, family and parenting, fashion and costuming, fairy tales and Disney, genre media, pop culture, modern mythology, and mental health awareness. I’ve specialized in science fiction and fantasy television and film, as well as musical theater and superhero comic books and their adaptations. Academically, I study the intersection between social sciences and pop culture and recently completed a Masters at Wesleyan University.
Conventions and Conferences
I have years of experience pitching, developing, and presenting panels at pop culture conventions across the country. I can assist in crafting your ideas, designing your presentation, wrangling your schedule, connecting speakers, and moderating panels.
I am also an experienced event coordinator and stage manager. I can manage guests, vendors, staff, and volunteers on site to make your event run smoothly. I enjoy creating order from chaos!
TBD; many 2020 events are cancelled due to COVID 19.
Fashion and Costuming
My passion is creating fandom inspired looks to be worn for any occasion. I would love to be your personal stylist! Please visit Pixie Fashion to learn more.
