Meet this week’s Lady Geek of the Week: Kaitlin Stewart. Liz first introduced Stewart on Being Geek Chic a few weeks ago and announced that Stewart’s instagram account, PwnLove, “is the coolest instagram account out there.” Liz wasn’t exaggerating.
Stewart’s currently on day 125 of a “365 Days of Video Games Fashion” quest. So cool, right? Sometimes the geekiness is subtle, sometimes it’s loud, and sometimes, it’s a pair of socks. Whatever the occasion, whatever the day brings, Stewart pulls off these geeky fashions like nobody’s business.
Check out Stewart’s blog PwnLove.com for even more geeky garment goodness.
Stewart’s raking in the PR buzz, too. Check out her interviews with The Daily Dot and the Geeky Hostess. Being Geek Chic’s interview gets a little more personal. We dive into her passions and frustrations of being a geek – which include being forced into the role of Donatello when she actually had an affinity for Raphael…
Q: What has led you to your passion?
A: Since I was little, my parents always encouraged me to play video games. The first video game was a Sesame Street counting game on the computer quickly followed by beating Mario and Adventures in the Magic Kingdom on the NES.
I fell in love with fashion when I was a tween. I loved clothes, make up and accessories. I love to take fashion risks and try something new. I could spend hours flipping through catalogs and magazines, exploring different style websites, watching runway shows and shopping for clothes. My bedroom in my childhood home is covered in magazine clippings of my favorite outfits, ads, pictures and inspiration. It wasn’t an instant connection to combine my two passions of video games and fashion but when I look back now, it seems like a natural fit.
