We have been looking for the right girl to lead off with a Harley Quinn costume. We received a lot of submissions that you will most likely see down the road but Emily Rose has done things with the character that we felt was worth publishing early.
Her display of Harley in and out of costume brings some diversity to how playful the character really is. Whether it be lounging by the pool or roller skating with a giant mallet, Emily brings life to a character that deserves it.
One thing I realized about Emily early on is that she is not only creative but has a great sense of humor and comes off as extremely intelligent. It’s always nice to have a pretty face but at Angry Web, we also like a girl with brains (mmmm brains).
Without babbling on anymore, I proudly present to you Emily Rose. Be sure to check out the gallery below for all of her photos.
Name: Emily Rose
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a complete comic book geek and my comic book collection weighs more than I do. I was Suma Cum Laude for my graduating high school class and got a presidential academic scholarship to college, but I can’t do basic multiplication. I’m ridiculously random and sporadic and all over the place and basically nuts. I am extremely politically active in my community and spend the majority of my free time working for social change and advocating for reform. And, of course, cosplay is the entirity of my life. I absolutely adore it and I wouldn’t trade the experiences it has brought me for the world.
What do you like to do for fun?
I fangirl and I fangirl hard. In the past I have discovered an actor or actress whose work I particularly enjoy, and I will spend the next several weeks plowing through every film he or she has ever made an appearance in. I have done this with Anthony Hopkins, Helena Bonham Carter, David Tennant, and Cillian Murphy. My current project is Ralph Fiennes.
What do you want to do for a living?Next year I will be starting at Columbia College Chicago pursuing a major in visual art. After school I’d love to find a job doing advertising art direction, but it’s more likely that I’ll end up a starving artist living in a cardboard box. I embrace my inevitable future completely and openheartedly. Is it possibly to cosplay as a full time job?
What type of video games, music, TV shows and movies do you like?
I have pretty varied tastes. My favorite music ranges from Broadway star Patti LuPone to the always spectacular Lady Gaga. I religiously watch nerd classics like Doctor Who, but I secretly adore Jersey Shore. I love cult movies like The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Labyrinth, but I can never get enough of Harry Potter. But as far as video games go, I’m pretty much devoted to Mario. I grew up playing Super Mario on a Nintendo 64, and I can kick serious butt at Super Smash Brothers Brawl.
What is your favorite comic book?
I am very active on the DC side of the DC vs. Marvel debate. Specifically, though, my favorite comic book is the graphic novel Batman: Lovers and Madmen. The portrayal of Batman as a true detective with astute logical reasoning who employs the use of forensic skills is how I believe Batman should be personified as, but I rarely see this portrayed in comic books. Additionally, I find that when the relationship between Batman and the Joker is written as them being almost dependent on each other, their fight becomes so much more intriguing. Besides The Dark Knight, this graphic novel is the only time I have ever seen this particular aspect portrayed.
Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I happen to be extremely short. I’m exactly 4 ft 11, but I try to remedy this by wearing heels all the time. My heel collection ranges in heel size from four inches to ten inches.
Anything else we should know about you?
In my free time, I take orders, design, and sell custom made hand painted shoes. I sell them online so that I can afford to wear pants made entirely out of rubies and koala meat…. just kidding.
