ILSN: First question. How did you get the name Rian Synnth?
Rian Synnth: When my mom was pregnant with me they thought I may be a boy, and if I was I was going to be named Ryan. I actually really loved the babe, but I wanted to spell it differently, more feminine I guess, so I guess that’s when Rian came to be. As for Synnth, she was actually one of my characters on World of Warcraft lol
ILSN:Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Rian Synnth: Well as you probably know I’m a huge nerd, I particularly love gaming. I’m also a dancer, and have been doing color guard competitively for many years now.
ILSN: What is the one cosplay outfit you are most proud of?
Rian Synnth: That’s a hard one, I guess I want to say Russell! Russell didn’t get a lot of popularity with the con, but I love that particular cosplay because almost every part of it was hand made and that is the one I put the most craftsmanship into.
ILSN: What was your childhood like growing up?
Rian Synnth: I was raised by my two brothers basically. My two NERDY brothers. I have no sisters, and my mom had to work all the time. From the get go I was surrounded by games, all the time. Pokemon cards, SNES, N64, and so much more. Both my brothers and my dad all game so it wasn’t shocking when I started to as well. My brothers definitely have shaped me into the nerd I am today.
Rian Synnth: Hopefully either finished with school or finishing up, I’m not sure what I want to go to school for yet so I guess this gives me time to figure it out. I definitely still want to be dancing and cosplaying that’s for sure!
ILSN: What do you do to inspire yourself?
ILSN: What do you like to do for fun?
Rian Synnth: When I do find time between work and rehearsal, I game!
ILSN: What kind of music do you like?
Rian Synnth: I can honestly say I like almost every genre of music, I especially enjoy classic rock and emo, and prog metal.
Rian Synnth: Gamer girl! More than anything else.
ILSN: Is there anything you are promoting right now?
Rian Synnth: I’m just promoting myself and trying to gain some traction on my page! I am also going to be in a web series on YouTube called Young Justice: Abduction where I will be playing Zatanna.
ILSN: What is the nerdiest thing you have done?
Rian Synnth: LAN parties… Lots and lots and LOTS of LAN parties. My boyfriend and I would set up with our neighbors in their garage like every week and set up laptops and monitors and xboxs anywhere there was space. Did I mention we didn’t sleep for like, days? Lol
Rian Synnth: Actually the first time that has happened was Comikaze this year! People recognized me out of costume and it was really awesome!
ILSN: What is the craziest gift a fan has ever given you?

ILSN: Favorite food?
Rian Synnth: Sushi, and not just because I’m Asian 😉
