#EarperView with @zum_hingst

Happy Thursday, Earpers! Today’s EarperView is with Patricia, one of the artists featured in the EH Con Canada artists’ alley.

Tell us a little bit about your non-Earper alter ego.

When I’m not Earping I run a machine shop that makes high precision parts for the aerospace, medical and printing industries.  I’m a big sci-fi/fantasy fan.  I love reading sci-fi novels including books by William Gibson and Tad Williams. I enjoy team sports and I have played competitively as an ice hockey goalie. I’m into sports cars and enjoy building and racing them.

How did you find Wynonna Earp and the fandom?

I was cruising the internet and came across a Wayhaught clip/GIF, (the Nedley’s office/first kiss scene).  I thought “oooh this is interesting” so I started watching Wynonna Earp and was immediately hooked.

Is this your first fandom?

I’m totally into sci-fi/supernatural shows, but there are only a select few that I’m really passionate about and probably will be for life. I’ve been to multiple Star Wars and Star Trek cons, meeting the actors and fans.   I’m also a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and now Wynonna Earp.

What is your favorite fandom memory?

Clexacon in 2017 was my favorite fandom memory.  It was the first time I met other Earpers. My flight to Vegas was delayed by 7 hours so I missed the Earper meetup, and I barely made it to the Wayhaught panel. which was amazing.   I met Bonnie and Kevin, who I recognized from the podcast, and also got to know some Earpers from my hometown, Vancouver. There was a WayHaught duo autograph session and the line-up was less than 10 minutes’ wait time!! Imagine that! Hahaha  

It was a great introduction into how awesome the Earper fandom can be!

What is your favorite con memory?

There are so many great memories from the cons I’ve been to, but the best memory was the episode watch with the cast and writers at EhCon 2018.

What is your favorite Wynonna Earp/Earper activity?

Watching and re-watching Wynonna Earp, of course!  I enjoy meeting up with the local Earper fan group and reading WE fanfiction.

What has Wynonna Earp come to mean to you?

Wynnona Earp has been my muse!  It’s a creative experience where I get to do my everyday work but create something that means a lot to me personally.  I love designing an object I think is cool and is meaningful to me – and then sharing it with other Earpers and the cast. It’s a dream.

Are there any pictures you’d like to share of your Wynonna Earp experience?

Sweet potato or Yukon Gold potato?

Yukon Gold!

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you Fandras?

I think I’m a solid 9.

Describe why Fandras is a thing in 7 words or less.

Wynonna Earp is your job now.”

What is your favorite Earp sisters moment?

In the first season, the conversation they have when they are drinking the bubble gum sake.

How have you Earped your life?

I dress Earper. Think Earper. Talk Earper. Chat with Earpers and Fight for Wynnona.

What’s the Earpiest thing you’ve ever done?

Put on my plaid Earper shirt and blasted the centre out of a target with a rifle at the local shooting range on Friday night with my wife and her sister. Wynonna made me do it!  I wouldn’t have done that pre-Wynonna.

If you could make a custom metal piece for four characters, what would they be and why?  

I would machine these custom metal pieces for the four 4 main characters:

  • Wynonna – Buntline replica gun
  • Waverly – Angel Wings
  • Nicole – Sheriff’s Badge
  • Doc – Playing cards and poker chips 

Thanks so much for playing along, Patricia, and I’ll see the rest of you gentle readers back tomorrow for the last EarperView in the EH Con Canada series.
