I love cats! Especially Ray the Model Kitty. This was also back when my hair was my natural color.

Hi there! Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

I’m Nichole Nance. I’m a college student, blogger, photographer, occasional cosplayer, and an emerging beauty enthusiast!

You may have found my blog through my cosplay hobby. I never really expected to be “known” for cosplay at all, but it just kinda happened. I have been cosplaying since 2007, starting with charity cosplay through the Star Wars charity costuming groups, the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion. I met my boyfriend through these groups and we have been together since April 2010. I have a love for making kids smile when I show up in the room or convention dressed up as their favorite character. I also want to continue my charity cosplaying by attending more children’s hospitals to help make their day just a little brighter in the face of their struggles. I have been fortunate enough to find myself an official member of Comicare where I visit children in hospitals dressed as a superhero and deliver smiles and comics to them and their families! It’s a truly rewarding experience and I am happy to be one of the representatives of such an amazing organization.

Aside from charity, I have a ton of reasons why cosplay is one of my hobbies, which you can read about on my blog post here: 8 Reasons Why I Cosplay

I love doing photoshoots! Whether in costume or more casual clothes. But I can never take a serious photo. Just saying.

Itty Bitty Geek has recently been rebranded into more of a niche blog surrounding my love of makeup and skincare. I’ve always loved makeup, however in the last couple of years that love has turned into a bit of an obsession in cosplay and in daily life. I find myself sharing the latest eyeshadow palette or lipstick I’ve found with my friends and I wanted a place to be able to share all of this and more with you too!

Makeup is a powerful tool, especially when it comes to cosplay, and I love playing with it whenever I can. Outside of daily looks, I am slowly beginning to experiment with pop culture-inspired looks as well as finding products that work perfectly and, most importantly, last throughout a convention when I’m in cosplay! So while, of course, I will share tips, tricks, and tutorials for everyday looks, I will also be sharing neat tips and tricks for cosplay makeup too.

Another obsession of mine? Photography. I love it. I love bringing out the beauty in the world and being able to capture those precious moments. I also find photographing animals is way too much fun – and very challenging! So you might find some photography posts sneaking into my blog from time to time as well.

Have questions, comments, or feedback for me? Feel free to head on over to my Contact page or email me directly at ittybittygeek@gmail.com.

Stay fabulous!

    I’m originally from the hellish desert too! Awesome that you’re a gamer chick. I used to be also when counter strike was popular but I had to stop because I have no will power when deciding between homework and games!

      I know that feeling. I’ve had to neglect my games all semester. Can’t wait to graduate so this won’t be an issue anymore. LOL.
