It has been said Valarie Vorpagel has the bearing of a woman of honor. She wouldn’t say that about herself, but people say it about her all the time. If you recognized the movie quote in that last line (hint: it was Guardians of the Galaxy) you may be just the type of person she considers a friend. Born and raised in Deltona, Florida Valarie got a late start to cosplay and costuming. However since being bitten by the cos-bug she has thrown herself head first into charity work, spending the majority of her free time attending various events and trouping through hospitals. Valarie considers it a personal accomplishment to see a once shy kid summon up the courage to give Spiderman or Batman a high-five. At the end of the day, it truly is all about making the children smile.
