Trivia: Obscurus Lupa
  • Acting for Two /Talking To Herself:
    • In her review of 13 seconds, Lupa dresses up as the movie's demon, who forces her to review Gerry 2: Even Loster.
    • The beginning of her review of Teen Sorcery has her acting out how she thinks the conversation between the film-makers went.
      "All we need is teenagers doin' some kinda... sorcery. But whadda we call it?"
    • In her review of Blood Red Moon, Lupa also plays Jenny Perfect.

  • Dyeing for Your Art: Lupa is a natural blonde, but has had red hair for the majority of her series.
