GC156 writer performer Aydrea Walden has ginger fever

A few months back I was looking for some web series creators to have on.  I found Aydrea and her upcoming series Black Girl in a Big Dress.  As I began to read up on her I found this blurb on her blog “The Oreo Experience”

The Oreo Experience or: A Total Whitey in a Black Chick’s Body

Oreo – Slang: Black on the outside….white on the inside.

My grandparents have really cool recessive genes for black people. They have this rich, dark skin with bright blue eyes.

I also have an interesting recessive gene for black people: the one that makes me love Renaissance Fairs, Kristen Chenowith, and dressage competitions.

After reading that and some of her blog posts, I knew I had to interview Aydrea, because she was either the slyest funny person I had met in some time or she was mentally ill, and either way I had to find the answer.

Please listen in as we discuss her upbringing in Texas, her days as a reporter in the Pacific North West and the tales of her search for big dresses.

Aydrea Walden Black Girl in a Big Dress

BLACK GIRL IN A BIG DRESS is a series about an African American Anglophile cosplayer in love with the Victorian Era who’s trying to bring a fantasy courtship from her re-enactment events into the real world. 

Adrienne feels happy and confident when she’s dressed up living life like it’s a fairy tale, but back in the real world, it’s a whole different story. Put her in a petticoat, and Adrienne can hold court with the best of them. But when the costumes come off and she has to just be herself, she has a hard time knowing who that is or how she fits in.
