Introducing...The Princess & The Warlock

Hello and welcome to The Princess & The Warlock, a blog designed to feature various offbeat hobbies as discussed by a couple involved in all manner of geekery. So let’s start with introductions, shall we?

About Us
The Princess is a former SCAdian and current active member of the lolita fashion community. She loves 1980’s fantasy movies, Asian ball jointed dolls, Renn Faires, RPGs of all kind and almost exclusively reads children’s literature.  Her favorite fandoms include Harry Potter and Final Fantasy VII. She also likes Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki movies and the writings of Neil Gaiman. Some of her all-time favorite characters include Princess Eilonwy (The Prydain Chronicles), Alice (Alice in Wonderland), and Magick (X-Men).
The Warlock started his journey at the young age of seven, when he first played Palladium’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles RPG. His mission for world domination has since continued. He enjoys playing RPGs, video games, CCG’s and keeps a large collection of miniatures and comic books. His favorite fandoms include Star Wars and A Song of Fire and Ice. He also likes classic Nintendo games and the works of Joss Whedon and Alan Moore. Some of his favorite all-time characters include Boba Fett (Star Wars), Raistlin Majere (Dragonlance) and Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
The Princess and The Warlock met in their first year of college where The Warlock introduced an already very geeky Princess into the big wide world of LARPing.  Their friendship eventually blossomed into romance… or at least that’s how The Warlock tells it. The Princess insists that he conveniently leaves out the whole kidnapping part. Either way, they married on October 1st, 2009 in a Labyrinth-inspired fantasy masquerade themed wedding. There was much rejoicing.

About the Blog
Through our years of delving into our numerous pastimes, we’ve learned a lot. For a while now, we have wanted to share our experiences with a broader audience to help promote discourse and critical thinking in our favored hobbies. Our goal is to bring together geek lifestylists from all backgrounds and give them a look at different related topics as told from two different points of view.  
We hope to bring you reviews of all kind (movies, comic books, tv shows, books and games), articles geared toward geek lifestylists (gamers, lolitas, cosplayers, rennies, collectors, etc), event reports and interviews featuring fellow bloggers and industry workers.  Since our aim is to reach out to the community, we encourage comments and discussion. You can also keep up to date by subscribing to our feed and following our Facebook and Twitter pages. If you have any questions for us, you are also free to email us at princesswarlock@gmail.com.
