Featured Shop: aNGrYGiRL Gear

by: WinterLights

From unrelentingly sexy corsets to stylishly deranged straight jacket shrugs to playful panda, vermin, and kitty hoodies, Cindy of aNGrYGiRL Gear offers an enticing array of clothing for chicks with a downright aggressive taste in fashion. Whether you’re feeling industriously badass, darkly romantic, or like an outright mix, Cindy has something to suit your every whim. Incorporating sinful amounts of metal hardware, seductive corset lacing, strategically placed mesh inserts, and bondage straps, her designs are not for timid fashionistas.



Cindy combines her impeccable technical expertise with her potent stylistic vision which is axiomatic in each and every piece she creates. The best part? Every piece is made to the customer’s measurements so they’re designed to fit and flatter every curve no matter what size or shape you are!


Thrilled with the opportunity, I asked Cindy a few fun questions to further unveil the girl behind the sewing machine.

Why are you so angry, anyway?
What's not to be angry about? Just look around! All kidding aside, I'm not really that angry, most of the time. I just have a bit of a hair-trigger temper and a big mouth that gets me in trouble a little too often. For the most part, I'm harmless.



What most inspires you to create?
I usually do my best work when I'm angry, hahah. Most of my designs are created on-the-fly, as I'm not very good at sketching. So really, my mood at the moment is my biggest inspiration.

Which one aNGrYGiRL Gear piece would you need to wear if you were trapped on a deserted island?
Clothes would be the last thing on my mind if I were trapped on a deserted island. NAKED BEACH PARTY!!!! Woooo hoooo....

If you won $20 million in the lottery, what would you do with the money?
No one would ever know what I did with it, because I'd be gone in a flash. I'd disappear off the face of the Earth faster than Dubya did after he left office. Of course there would be rumors - people would report sightings of a drunk, naked, braided girl partying it up with her harem on the beaches of the world - but no one would ever be able to confirm that it was me, because I'd have already moved on to the next location. Kind of like David Banner used to do, except that I won't turn green, gain 200 pounds, rip out of my clothes, and trash the place before I left. Ok, maybe I'd trash the place...



What future plans do you have in store for your line?
I'm looking at a whole new business model. I've been doing the custom sized work for a few years now, and I do like that model, but there is little to no room for creativity. I just make the same 20 items over and over again. I intend to keep with the custom sized work, but I'm also going to start offering OOAK pieces - and not just the *standard* pieces you're used to seeing from AGG. I'm going to be branching out into new areas and taking some big design risks. Part of the new business model is remaking myself. I don't want to send OOAK pieces out to be modeled and photographed, I want to be able to do it myself, so I am working on losing that stubborn 30 pounds, so that I can be my own model and bring MY style to... well, my style...

    I love ALL my AngryGirl Gear, and I plan on adding more to it, not to forget the fact that I plan to bug Ms Angry to death so I'll get a custom AngryGirl wedding corset (whenever I do get married, that is...).
