Gwendolynne Gee:   Oh how I miss Alaska! There is a lot to do out there, you just have to not be lazy. There is snow machining, mudding, snowboarding, but my favorite thing to do is just layout on the canoe with my best friend and float down the Chena River.

Rian Synnth Nerd of the Month


              The 2014 NERD of the month is Rian Synnth.  She is from So Cal and likes to go to cons in So Cal.  She was nice enough to do a Q and A with us.

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 lol1375648_495796197185124_873285078_n

ILSN:Tell us a little bit about yourself?

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.

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.

2013-11-03 04.16.05ILSN:  Where do you see yourself five years from now?

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!2013-11-03 04.16.38
