Hello everyone! My name is Reiko :) I am a bit expereinced in the modeling world, but I am willing to try as well as learn from both photographers and models alike!
[[A little about me!]]
I'm a fun person to be around once you get to know me and even though I am still shy in front of the camera, work with me so that I am comfortable and able to bring the best me possible! :)
For body mods, I have a piercing on each ear and a belly ring; I also have 2 tattoos, both on my back: a tribal dragon on my lower left back area and a Final Fantasy XIII-based tattoo on my right shoulder-blade.
[[What I like!]]
I have a passion for anime, international music and video games. I am a fan of cosplay and costuming; I started cosplay in 2008 and working to expand my work and skills. I also keep an open mind and heart to other genres as well.
I also attend anime, sci-fi, and fantasy conventions. My convention history includes:
-Nekocon (Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Hampton - Virginia, USA)
-Otakon (Baltimore, Maryland, USA)
-Katsucon (Crystal City - Virginia, USA; National Harbor, Maryland USA)
-Anime Mid-Atlantic (Chesapeake - Virginia, USA)
-Marscon (Williamsburg - Virginia, USA)
-ODU Minicon (Norfolk - Virginia, USA)
-Shoboucon (Chesapeake - Virginia, USA)
-Virginia Comicon (Richmond - Virginia, USA)
-Anime USA (Washington D.C., USA)

[[What I'm looking for here on Model Mayhem]]
After spending a year with exploring and experimenting with many genres, I have decided that my main focus for my portfolio will be for COSPLAY. There may be other exceptions depending on assignment.
I would like to showcase my work through ways of fashion and cosplay, and work with other models and photographers who are as passionate about them as I am. I can make my own costumes for different genres (fantasy, video games and Japanese animation); however, I'm interested in not only featuring the characters but bringing life and personality with my own twist. I am open for ideas in bringing edge to the character and location of the shoot. :)
