Costumer / Costuming / Fan / Panelist Guest / Scientist
Ann is an artist. She loves making costumes and going on stage. She made four issues of a Doctor Who fanzine in the 80s while an assistant editor for a publishing company. Then she went back to college for a degree in biological science. Over the past 47 years she’s lived with 21 cats, 2 horses, 2 pet rats, and 28 dogs, although not all at the same time. And she managed to keep the same husband somehow—maybe he was just too lazy to find someone else. Like most science fiction/fantasy fans she is eccentric. But she loves to donate her time and money to her favorite dog and cat charities, and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. She loves to talk costuming, so go find her if you share that hobby.
