Emily "Boots" Gruss
Emily joined the Ship of Fools on October 20th, 2013. She is one of the first three people to join the Fools through auditions.
Emily's nickname, Boots, was decided by Leah "Vinyl" Hedrick. It was derived from a scene in which she portrayed a character raised with knee-high boots for parents.
Emily's first show was the "We are all fools in love" show on February 14th, 2015.
