A Perky Nerd’s First Fandom

My Wonder is a Marvel 

You know how I said Captain Marvel IS my Wonder Woman. Confession:  I’m a girl that didn’t grow up on Wonder Woman, so when the WW craze hit, I wasn’t THAT crazed. GASP! Of course, I was totally excited for this amazing movie with a kick ass lead and talented director. Definitely. But I never went around wishing I was Wonder Woman or watched her show.

I have made friends with some serious WW fans and while I was stoked about seeing a strong woman on the big screen, I was more excited for my friends to have their moment to see Wondy kick some ass, which I feel is how it will be when Captain Marvel comes out. While others may not be familiar with Captain Marvel, I’m ALL ABOUT HER. Everyone knows how psyched I am about Carol Danvers on the big screen. But before there was Carol Danvers, there was someone else. My first fandom, two actually. Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite. That’s my jam right there, my strawberry jam. 😜

 

First Fandoms

I have been a fangirl of all sorts of things since I was little.  Michael Jackson, MTV, Mr. Rogers, metal lunchboxes,  all of them hold a special place in my fangirl heart. But Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite were the shizzle of my dizzle growing up. I had Strawberry Shortcake bedding, Strawberry Shortcake dolls, strawberry scented chapstick and lipgloss, strawberry pop tarts, strawberry ice cream, and my favorite dessert was actual strawberry shortcake. You’d think my favorite color was pink like Strawberry Shortcake, but I actually loved ALL the colors because Rainbow Brite was my other obsession.

Wear ALL the Things!

I wanted to BE Rainbow Brite! I had a rainbow toy box. I dressed in every color I could find, red shorts, colored tights, multi colored heart shirt, every color of sunglasses and bandana headband. Accessory queen! If you got it, flaunt it and ALL of it at once. I went through a phase where I wanted a side ponytail everyday and my mom HAD TO draw a purple heart on my cheek just like Rainbow Brite.

 

Any Excuse to Dress Up!

These fangirl moments all came rushing back when I saw there was a Strawberry Shortcake comic and a Strawberry Shortcake Funko POP! coming out when we first opened the shop. And yes yes yes,  it was even Strawberry scented, as it should be. So what did I do? Throw an 80’s art show at the shop so I could dress up like Strawberry Shortcake complete with her cat, Custard. A plush I stored in my rainbow toybox that was finally freed for the occasion. Since I’m normally a blonde, actually having red hair to be Strawberry Shortcake was the ultimate!!! In case you are wondering, I had already dressed up as Rainbow Brite years ago at our first of many Halloween parties. It was a no brainer. And Jesus showed up. So much coolness as I’m a big fan of his too!

FUNKO FLUNKO!

All of this Strawberry Shortcake Funko Pop excitement and I didn’t think to save one for myself. I sold all of them!!! How does that even happen?  It didn’t occur to me that I made an epic mistake in my fangirl collection, until Rainbow Brite’s POP came out  this summer complete with her sprite, Twink.  BTW I totally have Twink as a plush in my toybox too, my mom made it for me. Adorable tiny sidekicks are my favorite.

Then, shortly after the Rainbow Brite POP released, it was announced that she was going to have her own comic too!!! OMG first Strawberry now Rainbow!!! Both of my first favorite of all favorites were coming back into my life in a the form of something I already sell. Two worlds colliding.

 

I pulled a Monica!

Suddenly, panic ensued. I can’t have a Rainbow Brite POP & comic and not have a Strawberry Shortcake one! I tried to see if I could order one from Funko to restock the shop and it was too late. It was retired.

Cue the Monica Geller “NOOOOOOOOO!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

POPS & Comics Achievement Unlocked

Retired POPs usually rocket in price, I’m totally screwed. Somehow I found a Strawberry Shortcake POP!  online for under $20 and I ordered it immediately. Achievement unlocked! Chaos averted.  My childhood will live on with my two favorites, Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite. Side by side in POP form and comic form. The tiny fangirl in me could be happy and my nerd must-have list got a little bit shorter.

 

Tell Me Yours!

It’s funny how just hearing the intro song to these two cartoons immediately transports me back. The joy of watching these powerful girls solve problems and always win against the bad guy… there’s something so comforting and inspiring about it. There’s something for everyone out there. These two just happen to be the gals that spoke to me. What’s your first fandom?

P.S.

Now that I think of it, when I was Strawberry Shortcake for Halloween, Jesus miraculously came back for one last hurrah! Ariel was there too, because you know how she is. She wants to be where the people are.

Be a Perky Nerd!

If you are a Rainbow Brite fan, don’t make the mistake I did.  Order Rainbow Brite POP here! And get psyched for the comic with 3 different covers too. All of them are equally rad.  Order issue #1 now!  Stay tuned for Perky Nerd blog posts, news, and events on our Facebook page. LIKE us and follow The Perky Nerd!

 

How a Fangirl Became a Perky Nerd

A Perky Nerd is Born 

People come into the shop and ask me all the time, “Soooooo what got you into this stuff?”  This stuff meaning the shop and everything in it. If you don’t live in Burbank, California,  the shop is The Perky Nerd. A comic book shop filled with cute collectibles, Funko Pops, games, fan art, cold brew coffee and more. Hence, the Perky Nerd (coffee keeps you perky and comics and more for the nerdy). It’s all a whirlwind how it came to be really.  I really wanted to open a cat café since I was known for my love of cats from my one woman show, “CONFESSIONS OF A CAT LADY (with a side of crazy!).” But after much research and a road trip, that idea evolved into a comic shop that sells bottled cold brew coffee.  Then, BOOM The Perky Nerd was born. So that brings me back to everyone’s question, “what got you into this?”

Perky Nerd as Ms. Marvel By Mike Essa

My First Comic Shop Experience

I usually respond with a retelling of my first comic book shop outing. I discovered Ms. Marvel comics in 2006 when my husband took me on an excursion to find some Amazing Spider-Man issues he was missing from his collection. I’m  originally from Arizona and had actually never stepped inside a comic book shop ever. So this was a new world. Shelves full of bright, pretty pages was overwhelming to this newbie. I didn’t know where to start and definitely didn’t want to ask the dudes at the counter and reveal I was a first timer. Then I saw a cover with this strong badass woman in a black leotard with long flowing blonde hair and I thought, “stop the presses, who is that? Vicki Vale.”   Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t into comics, but I definitely knew of the greats, cinematically at least. For the record, Michael Keaton is the best Batman. Michael Keaton IS Batman.  OKAAAAYYY 😆 

Carol Danvers Fever

Back to the badass on the shelf. I was intrigued by this Ms. Marvel character and picked up all the available issues.  I’ll give this a whirl and see what happens. That’s when I got hooked on Carol Danvers. She can fly, she has superhuman strength, she can shoot energy bursts out her hands, and doesn’t take shit from anyone. Her human traits were my favorite things about her as former Air Force, BFF’s with Spiderwoman, and always trying to prove herself.  I wanted to be her,  so I made a costume to be classic Ms. Marvel in the black leotard, red sash, and thigh high boots. Any excuse to dress up, so that was my costume for Halloween that year, later to find it’s called cosplay when you do it for Cons.

Becoming Nerdy 

At the time, I was not well versed in this nerd world and was not up on the lingo aka correct terminology for things. For instance,  I didn’t even know what it meant when they asked if I wanted a bag and board with my comic, “do you want a bag and board” sounded like a foreign language to me. I just laughed and said no thanks pretending like I knew.  This is why I’m very sensitive to people who seemed perplexed when I ask them at my own shop. You have to understand how intimidating it is to walk into a comic book shop when it actually is your first time. I still don’t know everything about comics and I don’t pretend to either. It’s one of the reasons I think people feel comfortable coming into the shop. It’s ok if you have never been into comics and just want to check it out.  You can like whatever you want AND you can choose to know as much or as little as you want. Thankfully, I loved the first comic I tried and got so wrapped up in Carol Danvers I wanted to know EVERYTHING. My husband even surprised me with the entire first Ms. Marvel run from the 70’s. It was like discovering buried treasure. It was so cool to find a character I liked so much. My nerd flag was flying, or so I thought.

My version of Chewie & Carol

Everyone is a Nerd

Then I went to WONDER CON. An explosion of ALL THE THINGS! That’s when being a nerd took a different and more intense turn in my world. Maybe too intense. I’m more of a casual person altogether. I like things to be fun and ….fun. Being a nerd suddenly came with lots of questions when you say you read comics and you like to cosplay. Have you read the origins of Ms. Marvel? Do you know who Captain Marvell is? Did you know DC also had a Captain Marvel? Is your costume comic accurate? OMG! This was too much. Can’t I just like something? The answer is YES, YOU CAN!  And you can do it at the Perky Nerd. You can be a fan of anything you want and you can be as big or small of a fan as you like. While I admire the hell out of guys that retain information about the entire DC Universe, or can recite every detail of the MCU, I don’t have the time to research and memorize all the ins and outs of every comic ever made. And the things I do know, sometimes leak out of my mom brain. It’s a side effect of having made a human.  Luckily, Carol Danvers was my jam, and I enjoyed learning everything about her. Til they changed her!

Comics Are Paper Soap Operas

Much to my dismay, Ms. Marvel became Captain Marvel. Not going to lie, I went into that transition kicking and screaming (not literally, ok maybe a tiny bit of screaming). I LOVED Carol as she was in all her tushy-hanging-out-glory. She rocked that leotard hard in my opinion. She was the shit as Ms. Marvel, I had dreams of playing her in the movies one day. Why change something awesome? But alas, I gave the Kelly Sue DeConnick “Captain Marvel” a try, and I felt like a kid that has to sheepishly admit their mom was right, because I ended up falling in love with this version of Carol D too. It was great! Plus, it had a great storyline with Chewie. Did I mention one of my favorite things is Carol is her cat lady aspect? She has a cat named after Chewbacca, who also happens to be one of my obsessions. Two fantastic worlds collide in the best way ever.  All the C’s. Cats, Chewbacca, Carol, Comics 😻throw in Coffee. You’ve got one Perky Nerd.

Carol D to Save The Day!

And NOW is the ultimate time to be alive. Carol Danvers is finally going to be in the movies. Obviously, I’m not playing her as I always hoped. Sad face. But, Brie Larson certainly does Carol justice.  See the trailer that makes me cry tears of joy (click here!) The best part is Captain Marvel isn’t going to be just some  cameo. She’s going to save the whole freaking world and have her very own movie. The time has come for Carol to become known by all.  I’m so thankful the MCU exists because it has made it easier for people to be nerdy.

Tiny Confession

I secretly want to keep Carol all to myself.  Sort of like when you’re a regular  at a bar. It’s quaint and cozy, the service is great and they know you by name. You want to hoard all the charm for yourself. Then, it gets on a Buzzfeed list and everyone’s favorite bar. That’s how I feel about Carol. I liked her first before it was cool. She’s a strong badass woman that becomes Earth’s Mightiest Hero. She’s the leader of next generation of the MCU. A woman led film after a long line of teasing a BLACK WIDOW stand alone.  That’s EXACTLY why I need to share. Spread that Carol D love. Increase the Carol Corps numbers. Captain Marvel is MY Wonder Woman. March 8th can’t come soon enough.

P.S. If you are wondering why Wonder Woman isn’t MY Wonder Woman, join me for the next post, “Confessions of a Perky Nerd.”
