Andrea Lovell

Hey there, my name is Andrea or as I go by on pretty much everything ever, AndieLovelly. I’m a professional Makeup Artist, Nursing student and all around rad geek. Over here at Geek Mountain I’ll be introducing you to LARP and Cosplay, talking to you about the best places to get necessary props, taking you on Cosplay photo shoots, giving you makeup tips and tricks, showing you how to find costume pieces, attending conventions to bring you all the excitement and so much more! What are my other Geekifications?

I’m a big fan of getting together with a group of friends and playing board games and card games, some of my favourites are: Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Zombies!!!, Munchkin, King of Tokyo, Warhammer Chaos in the Old World, Dixit, Fluxx, Gloom and let’s not forget the classics, Cluedo will never go out of fashion! I’m always up for trying a new board game and adding to my collection. I also have been known to take part in tabletop style RPG games, and am about to start a Pathfinder campaign, as well as joining a group of awesome people in developing a NEW game!

When I’m not studying or playing board games I’m getting involved in the Cosplay and LARP community, attending conventions and creating new characters. On Friday nights I take part in an epic battle game with Swordcraft here in Melbourne, dressing up as a Viking Shield maiden named Valka and battling with foam weapons. On other weekends I take part in LARP games run by a group named Caligo Mundi including a Generation-X and starting soon a Game of Thrones themed game. I regularly attend Melbourne pop culture, comic and gaming conventions, especially if it means the opportunity to Cosplay, what can I say? I love costumes!

What else do I get up to? Well, I play a wide variety of video games especially RPG’s and fighting games, give me Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Tekken and SoulCalibur, I’ll be a happy gal! I love my 90’s movies, cartoons and T.V. shows (which I will watch on repeat, shamelessly) and more recently I admit to spending some of my spare time binge watching Netflix, especially all the random Anime shows and Misfits. I enjoy reading reading books, articles and of course comics, X-Men being some of my favourites or anything Watchmen related.

Needless to see my life is made up of a lot of Geeky stuff, luckily a lot of my friends and loved ones are right there with me. I’m super excited to be here at Geek Mountain introducing people to the world of Geek and showing people that anyone can be involved, this is a community that celebrates diversity, imagination and acceptance. Looking forward to chatting to you over at Base Camp, Geek Mountaineers, if you want to get in touch with me you can find me as @AndieLovelly on Xbox, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and pretty much anywhere else!
