My name is Evon and I am a proud black girl nerd! I embrace my nerdiness wholeheartedly! I am a mother to my own budding nerd and I try to assure him that being a nerd isn’t a bad thing. I am a hyperactive goofball that loves to smile and have fun. I will make a complete idiot of myself that means I can cheer you up on a rough day. Sometimes (okay maybe a lot of times) I laugh at my own lame jokes. I am so happy to have found Black Girl Nerds! I feel that you guys are the friends I didn’t have when I was in school! Its nice to find a place where people understand you and make you feel like family. Growing up, I never really understood how my love of video games, cartoons and comic books made me different. Being a nerd was something that felt completely natural to me although I didn’t know what to ‘label’ myself as. I knew what I liked and didn’t really care who thought that was odd.
I am a lover of all things cosplay. Having the opportunity to pay homage to a character you love is so much fun, I love pretending to be another person for the day! Cosplaying has been such a fun, difficult and exciting experience for me so far, and I know it will only get better. I have been cosplaying off and on for several years, but I am seriously buckling down and working on a lot of new costumes. I am preparing for three conventions back to back and I am really excited for them! I am currently being commissioned for characters and I am hoping to make cosplay a part of my business. I am also a fan of anime and manga, Berzerk being my favorite manga series, and High School of the Dead being my favorite anime series at the moment. I am also an avid gamer both on PC and my Xbox 360. Currently I have been playing a lot of Diablo 3(pc) and Mortal Kombat Arkade Kollection (xbox) Feel free to add me on xbox live at EVONVON.
I run a small blog focusing on things nerdy with a focus on the feminine aspect. I have several recurring series where I review movies, interview fellow cosplayers, and create geek/nerd inspired fashion. In addition to my blog, I also run a quaint online shop where I sell my own handmade geeky/nerdy goods! My shop is fairly new so there is a small assortment of items in it currently. However bigger and better items are continually being added!
