Hello everyone and welcome to my deviantart page! I'm glad you stopped by!

About me? Well then... *ahem*

Dreamer, cosplayer, model, makeup artist, beauty guru, chef-in-the-making... Just a girl with a big heart who is willing to try and willing to learn.

There are many ways that you guys and dolls can connect with me! Let's connect and stay friends, always! ^-^

I am a cosplayer from the United States :)

I have been cosplaying since 2006, but I have been on and off from making costumes due to my work and school schedule. Now that my hours are more flexible and enjoyable, I can now make more cosplays! I only have a few to share right now, but I hope to build and expand my experience and portfolio very soon :)

Let's connect and stay friends always!

It's been a long time since I last updated my DeviantArt, but hello to my followers, dedicated and new! 

I hope you all are enjoying your summer so far! It's been getting really hot and humid as well as stormy in my hometown, but oddly enough today has been a very pleasant day. Sadly I was inside at work for the majority of the day so I haven't been able to enjoy it as much. I'm a very busy person, but I try as much as possible to enjoy myself with every chance I get. :) 

I suppose I can also update you all with a brief summary of my experience at Anime Mid-Atlantic, which took place last weekend: 

Friday AMA: Started off with a picnic and photography with such wonderful and beautiful people. Went to cosplay fashion show dress rehearsal as Poison Ivy (50's style) and spent the afternoon with friends and exploring the artist alley. The fashion show later that evening was such a treat, and everyone did a beautiful job strutting their stuff on stage. I'm even more proud that my siren friends brought their courage to the stage as wel
l - their CONFIDENCE surely shone through. Ended the night with some music, dance, friends and photography. 

Saturday: Debuted my Noel (BlazBlue) cosplay and had an opportunity to have a mini shoot with Ragna! (There was a Rachel too but we ended up not finding her ;-;) Changed to Chieri and got together with our lovelies from AKB0048 for another mini photoshoot - we even got ice cream! Changed once more to Rikku for another shoot and spent the rest of the evening for quality time with friends and exploring photography and lighting before the storm came in.

Sunday AMA: Debut Lenne for a breezy cosplay on the last day. After getting a new wig and briefly meeting with a new cosplay friend, my friends and I explored more photography before saying "see you later" to one another. Closing ceremonies were wonderful, especially seeing the lovely Reni Chanand Yunmao on stage.

I have not gotten around to checking around for more photos during the weekend but rest assured I will post them as soon as I get around to them and/or if I find the chance to find some pictures of me yet to be tagged :) And of course, I will credit their respective photographers! 

Even though it has been a week since Anime Mid-Atlantic, I am already planning and designing my costumes for my next major convention: Nekocon in November! Please be sure to check out my tumblr and Instagram (reikoheartsu) and follow along in my works in progress! 

That is all for now, but I will update my albums on my day off, which is this Tuesday! Thank you all for your kind comments and support on my page. I look forward to updating you all soon!

xoxo, 
~Reiko

Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug (which, hopefully includes the person who sent it to you)!!

You might send it to your enemies as well!
It'll really make them stop and think!!!

If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them!

If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends

If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!)

If you receive this back 3 times, you're a good friend.

If you receive this back 4 times, you're truly loved as a friend!!
