About

Welcome! My name is Anna, and I am the author of OMGlitzy (formerly known as GlitzyGeekGirl.) I've been reading blogs for many years and decided to start sharing my own adventures in 2012. My hope is that this blog can be a source for girls (and guys!) to find inspiration and positivity through my glitzy geeky life! For too long stereotypes have limited who is considered “geeky” or who is “stylish.” I say you can be both, and you should be proud of it! I have a blast posting reviews, fashion tips, cosplay tutorials and pictures of my one-eared cat Pixie.
I have been a long time video game player, and owe most of my geekiness to my wonderful brother for introducing me to games at a young age. You'll usually find me at my computer playing Guild Wars 2 or on my Nintendo 3DS. When I'm not playing games I love to go shopping! My closet has more t-shirts than I can count, and I gravitate toward sparkly necklaces. I also enjoy coloring my hair funky colors and experimenting with new makeup techniques.

After getting my bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, my interest in fashion propelled me into finding a job in the beauty industry as a cosmetologist. I have been doing hair professionally for 7 years now. On OMGlitzy you will often find hair product reviews, color application tips, and even wig styling tutorials.
Living in the Dallas metroplex has given me the opportunity to attend comic and anime conventions. I began cosplaying in 2012 and found a love for it right away. Cosplay is short for "costume play" and is the art of representing a character by wearing a costume. It's one of my ways to show how much I admire a character from a game, movie, book, etc. Cosplaying is enjoyable because it combines my two favorite things into one: fashion and geekery! There's no right or wrong way to do it, and it opens so many doors to meet new people.

I'm incredibly proud of the direction my blog has taken and how it has helped me embrace who I am. Like many people, my life had its moments of judgement by others who disapproved of my geekiness. One thing I stand against is bullying. No one has the right to belittle who you are, what you are, or what you stand for. Your individuality is your personal choice and is no more less important than anyone else's. Here at OMGlitzy I believe all fandoms are equal. We're all superheroes on an extraordinary journey!


FAQ
Below are some questions I am frequently asked. If you don't see an answer to your question feel free to leave a comment or email me. :)

Anna Lee
Where do you live? I live in a small Texas town north of Dallas called Prosper.
How old are you? I am a 12 year old inside a 30 year old's body. ;)
Where do you work? Currently I am a freelance professional hair stylist looking for the right salon.

Cosplay
What was the first cosplay you did? I dressed up as Ramona Flowers for 2012's Dallas Comic Con. The first costume I handmade myself was Princess Zelda from Skyward Sword for 2012's Dallas Fan Days.
How did you get into cosplay? I dressed up as Ramona Flowers because I already had most of her clothes and my hair was blue at the time. At the convention I was overwhelmed by the amazing costumes I saw and wanted to make more right away. I haven't stopped since!
Can I ask you for help with a costume? Of course! I am still a newbie at cosplaying, but I enjoy posting tutorials and sharing advice.

Gaming
What games do you play? I mostly play MMORPGs. My favorite is Guild Wars 2. I also enjoy EverQuest 2, Skyrim, League of Legends, Animal Crossing, Pokemon X, and all the Legend of Zelda and Super Mario games.
What is your Nintendo 3DS Friend Code? 3840-6126-6273
What is your Steam ID? GlitzyGeekGirl
What is your League of Legends name? Audeley
What is your Guild Wars 2 name? audeley.3205

Hair
What is your natural hair color? I was born with blonde hair. It's now a dark blonde.
How do you keep your hair healthy? You can check out this post I wrote for more info. In a nutshell, I always try to wash my hair with cold water, use a good deep conditioner, regularly trim my dead ends, use a Keratin leave-in treatment, and take a daily vitamin supplement.
What brand of dye do you use? My favorite brand of dye is Special Effects. It's impossible for me to find it in stores now so I use RAW from Hot Topic, Manic Panic, and ION.

Body Mods
How many tattoos do you have? Too many to count. I have plenty of room for more, though!
What do your tattoos mean? Some have a deeper meaning than others. I don't like to go into detail about most of them because they are personal. Occasionally, I'll share if I get a new one, but please don't expect me to show you all of them.
How many piercings do you have? I wear jewelry in 7 piercings.
What size are your ears? I have my ears stretched to 1 inch in diameter.
Can you recommend a tattoo shop? Yes! Please check out Saints and Sinners in Carrollton, Tx. Ask for Dru!
Any advice on getting a tattoo? My only advice regarding getting a tattoo for the first time or even additional ones is to pick the best artist you can find, regardless of price, and really really be sure it is one you will not regret.

Pixie Doodle
What happened to Pixie's ear? Pixie is a rescue kitty I adopted from the Frisco Humane Society. Her ear was already folded over when I adopted her. So I am not sure what her whole story is. But her vet thinks she had a bad case of ear mites that went untreated and resulted in severe scarring causing it to fold over. You can read more about her adoption story here.

  1. OMG, I use to have a cat with one ear bent down too. It happened to him when he was in a fight before I even got him. Is that what happened to Pixie?

    1. The vet said Pixie's ear is likely deformed from a bad ear mite infection. This also happened before I adopted her. Her ear was infected so bad that she probably scratched at it and it eventually scarred over. But besides needing help cleaning it, her ear is very healthy now :)

  3. Love that you incorporate Ramona Flowers into some of your site art. Great blog, looking forward to reading more! Pixie is ADORABLE, btw. (But, being a cat, knows that already, I'm sure.)

  4. Awesome to see your blog. The old adage is that there aren't any girls playing MMO's and video games. This is proof, there are gamer girls, and they are pretty cool.

    I will most definitely be back to see more.

I love your tattoos and all of your colorful hair styles (and even just your platinum blonde look!). Your posts are always so positive and upbeat. You seem like an all-around fun person.
