Angry Girl Of The Week: Gillian

This week we are proud to introduce you to another Canadian cosplayer and fellow geek.

Not only does Gillian have some great tastes in music, movies and TV but any girl who can hold her own in Magic The Gathering is OK in my book. We selected her because she is one of the best looking Catwoman cosplayers we’ve seen and once I received some of her other shots, I knew we had made a great choice with this week’s Angry Girl.

Name: Gillian aka. Gillykins
Age: 21

Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’ve been costuming since 2005 and have been a nerd since birth. Saturday morning cartoons started my addiction to comic books and Batman which has only evolved over the years.  My name is Gillian but I go by Gillykins online, if you see the username on forums or Xbox Live there is the 95% chance that it is me.

What do you like to do for fun?
In my spare time I love to cook, play video games, sew, read and play tennis.  A lot of my spare time is devoted to costuming but luckily I find the creative process fun. I split my time between my friends, family, work, video games, reading comics, working out and cooking delicious food.

What do you want to do for a living?
As much as I’d love to be Batman, realistically I’m just a student graduating from university.  Ideally I’ll end up working in marketing since I have a ridiculous knowledge of cultural studies and advertising, my second love after comics.

What type of video games, music, TV shows and movies do you like?
My favorite video game of all time is a tie between Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Diablo 2, I have put a lot of game play into each of the games over the years.  When it comes to music lately I’ve been listening to a lot of The Black Keys and AWOLNATION. My gym playlist is drastically different from my everyday music.

I’m currently addicted to Breaking Bad (soooo far behind) but some of my favorite series are Batman: The Animated Series, Daria, Sherlock and Game of Thrones.  My favoritism films are Trainspotting and Spirited Away.

What is your favorite comic book?
My favourite comic book is Batman: Hush, I have a major love affair with anything and everything Batman.  Some of my favorite series are Zatanna, Jokers Asylum, Birds of Prey, Transmetropolitain and Fables.

Tell us something interesting about yourself. 
I am an award winning costumer at the master level in ICG ranking.  I’m a completely self taught in sewing and still feel like I barely know what I’m doing.  I love getting to use my background in fine arts and improve in costuming to help bring the character to life.

I have more than a fondness to tea; I have a collection of different bagged and loose leaf teas that keep my warm and caffeinated during the Canadian winter.  If anyone ever finds a interesting new tea I always want to try it.

Anything else we should know about you?
I’m a Costuming, Gaming, Comic Book Readings, Cooking and Caffeinated nerd from Toronto. Gaming is second nature to me; I rarely pass up a chance for a slayer match in Halo or Meph Run.  I also love playing Magic the Gathering; I play with friends for hours on end some nights.
