Angry Girl Of The Week: Karinna

I want to say I hate breaking up the cycle of having girls in costume at the top of this thread but the truth is…I don’t.

Karinna’s submission as our Girl of the Week is full of geeky goodness but what drew me to her was her classic pinup look. From her hair style to the lingerie she sports, Karinna mixes the appeal of Betty Page with the passion of a gamer and it’s simply irresistible.

Whether she’s dolled up as Misty from Pokemon or showing off her gaming tattoos in a sexy, vintage, photo shoot, Karinna falls into the category of “exactly what we’re looking for” in our girl of the week.

Name: Karinna Atlee

Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a pin-up/alternative/cosplay model, hair designer, makeup artist, writer, and violinist from Atlanta, Ga.

What do you do for fun?
I am a movie fanatic! I go to the movies all the time, especially for midnight premieres. I absolutely love going to concerts, too. Despite my busy schedule, I try my hardest to attend at least one show a month. Whether it’s a show that takes place at a huge amphitheater with thousands of fans or a tiny bar downtown, I am always up for a night of just relaxing with some friends and listening to great music. I love taking road trips to shows, too. I visited Chicago for the first time this year just to see one of my favorite bands play. I love going out to eat with friends, too; food is one of the greatest things of all time.  And, of course, I’m a nut for geeky conventions. I attended DragonCon for the first time this year and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I’m addicted.

What do you do for a living?
I’m a full-time hair designer 5 days a week. During the weekends I’m usually modeling for photo shoots. This year alone I have had the privilege of being published in multiple magazines, such as Retro Lovely, and internet blogs, such as Geeks Are Sexy. I recently started doing hair and makeup for shoots, as well.

What type of video games, music, TV shows and movies do you like?
I’m obsessed with Left4Dead on X-box. I even have Zoey tattooed on my right arm. I also love Nintendo 64 games such as Golden Eye, Mario Kart, and Banjo Kazooie. My favorite TV shows are Dexter, Scrubs, and Smallville. As far as movies, there are too many favorites to count; from Back to the Future to American Beauty to Moulin Rouge to Zombieland to Star Wars to Harry Potter.

As far as music goes, I have an open ear for just about anything. A few great bands that you should check out include Tommy and the High Pilots, Ludo, My Chemical Romance, and The Civil Wars. Being a violinist, naturally I adore classical music, too.

What is your favorite comic book?
My favorite graphic novels are Watchmen and The Umbrella Academy. I have tattoos from both of these, as well. I love The Walking Dead and Batman comics, too.

Tell us something interesting about yourself.
One of my greatest passions is writing. I have been writing anything from novels to short stories to poems since I was a little girl. One of my dreams is to one day become a published author. I would love to someday major in literature, as well. Call me a nerd, but I love going to school and being around an educational environment.

Anything else we should know about you?
I have a Facebook fan page where everyone can check out my latest photo shoots, convention adventures, and other exciting experiences!
