Sarah is an archaeologist, a fake gamer girl, a gym bro, and a frequent swearer. As a proud Nova Scotian she thrives on donair and beer, and is willing to make any costume out of any material in the name of her team. She’s an obsessive fangirl who found the truest of friends of SeaCon, and could not be more happy she was steamrolled into spending thousands of dollars to get there.

Favorite personal GISHWHES entry: corn husk bikini, and the giggling tourists watching me take photos down on the bustling waterfront.

Meg, 30, is a grumpy old hag livin’ the LA life in her twilight years. She’s a lifelong fangirl who stumbled into the Supernatural fandom mostly by mistake, and still somehow managed to drag six of her best friends in with her. Thus the TrashPandas were born! She assumes no responsibility for their behavior, however, and deeply regrets imparting this pain upon them. When not participating in GISHWHES or crying about GISHWHES, Meg is usually drinking Coke Zero and swearing loudly about hockey.

Favorite personal GISHWHES entry: my drawing of Misha and the Queen in the Old West.

I am a big fan of random acts that bring smiles to people.  GISHWHES fits that love perfectly. I enjoy many kinds of games and media, especailly when sharing them with friends. I heard about GISHWHES a few years ago but never thought i’d be able to join a team until Kristin invited me while at a PAX, super excited to be competing with my fabulous fellow Trash Panda’s.

Favorite personal GISHWHES entry: laying in a coffin full of popcorn.

Lisa (Lisasaurus to her professional acquaintances) is a rocket scientist and and Star Wars enthusiast.  Currently resides in Glasgow, UK but only because that’s where her satellites live before being hurled into the void.  Tries to live her life as silly as possible, so GISHWHES seemed like a good way to spend a week.  She was not wrong.  Currently thankful she can think about eating kale again.

Favorite personal GISHWHES entry: sending a message into space.  My CEO is still making fun of me for making him sign a contract with the word “Trashpanda” used repeatedly XD.

Vancouver born ‘n raised cat-lady, my love of Supernatural came from the start of the show.  I love being in Hollywood-North and playing spot the Vancouver when SPN had an iconic “Save on Meats” sign as ‘Chicago’ and when I had to “get to work” and go past Baby. I was invited to be part of Gishwhes by incredible peoples and grateful to strengthen existing friendships and make some really great new ones.

Fandoms: Supernatural, StarTrek, Grimm, Arrow, WoW, Blacklist, Outlander, Vampire Diaries/The Originals, Marvel (okay, mostly Thor), DC (Catwoman, Green Arrow, Batwoman, Aquaman, JLA Dark), StarWars, Doctor Who and DISNEY.

Favorite personal GISHWHES entry: Spot the Padna. He was solid, huggably built and lived in our guest bathroom as a wonderful conversation piece ^_^

Kristin is a generally ebullient crusader of positive forces who loves people, video games, and the Rule of Three. She lives in Burnaby, BC but telecommutes for a Seattle-based company and is very used to be teased by Americans. She coordinates a non-profit that helps children’s hospitals and commands an army. No, really.

GISHWHES appealed to her affinity for nonsense, and spending the week toiling with her best internet friends has genuinely become one of her life’s best memories. Gishbot’s 2016 HUNT OVER message had barely chimed before she raced out to get a TrashPanda tattoo. 

Favourite personal GISHWHES entry: #31 personify a street sign, because dressing up like an Imperial (Street) Walker (Avenue) was one of the silliest things I’ve ever done and it really embarrassed my sons.

I’m a fangirl librarian who is so proud and honored to be a Trashpanda. I’m ADDICTED to TV, love reading romance novels and fanfic of my OTPs, and going to Broadway shows. I have way too many fandoms to name, but I will always hold Supernatural close to my heart, since I met so many AMAZING and AWESOME people through it. I also spend way too much money on things like funkos and subscription boxes (its a problem. I”ll stop. Eventually.)  Also, I could probably live on Diet Coke, donuts, pickles, and potatoes. I love carbs with a passion.  

Favorite personal GISHWHES entry: #39, just because it involved me sneaking around, trying not to be too inconspicuous while wearing a Cape and a Yoda mask. It was ridiculous. I also managed to terrify a coworker, which was hilarious.
