About me
I may be 5'3" but that doesn't mean I don't know how to own a runway ;]


About me! I am half Filipino/half European and I've been modeling since I was about 16 years old and have been a free lance model since 20. I feel that I've grown in experience through the years so I try to give my best for shoots. I've been told I don't need much guidance in photo sessions unless it's a specific shot the photographer is trying to go for. I know my good angles and my bad angles and I make sure to tell them to the photographer in the beginning of the shoot. I don't mind shooting lingerie shoots but I do not do any nudes, implied nudes, or erotic shots - these are just things I'm not comfortable nor experienced in doing.

I currently do more 'cosplay' modeling than fashion modeling. Cosplay, if you do not know, is a term that uses the words "costume" and "play". It's a hobby where one buys or makes a costume for a series [anime, cartoon, movie, book, TV show, comic, etc. etc.] and wears them to conventions. I've been passionate about cosplay since 2009 and I attend a large handful of east coast conventions. That being said, I don't mind bringing a cosplay to a photoshoot but I will say that I'm more strict on poses in this regard. I like to try and pose the way I feel the character I'm portraying would pose. If you'd like to see some of my cosplay work I have a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FushichoCosplay

In regards to the actual shooting session - I will provide my own wardrobe if necessary [though I don't have a large amount to choose from in regards to style]. I can also do my own hair and makeup if requested to do so - please just let me know if you'd like me to have it done before I arrive otherwise I will do it there to make sure you like the outcome.

I'm not afraid to work with new people but if you want to send me a request, I'd also like a site where your portfolio is available for me to look through. If you only have Model Mayhem as your portfolio, I'd love if I could have some model references to check out - I am willing to do the same with photographers for you if requested.

If you message me about an interest in doing a shoot please understand that if you expect payment I will say no - I just don't have the funds to pay a photographer. Most of what I do is TFP/TFCD and I try to give photographers as much as a variety as I can. However, if we are to meet at a location where I drive for longer then thirty minutes - I may ask for a small compensation for gas. I drive an eco friendly car so I won't ask for much at all.

If you have any questions, feel free to shoot them past me. It takes me between 2 to 4 days to reply.
