My Bio
My artist name is Nemo Valkyrja ("ja" = "ya" sound) and means Valkyrie in old Norse. My heritage is Norwegian and I love mythology, so I think it's a good fit :)

I graduated with dual Bachelor's degrees in Japanese and Asia Studies and lived abroad in Kyoto, Japan.

I started going to conventions in 2003, but was not an active cosplayer until 2007. As of late 2011, I've made around 12 costumes and certainly have some unfinished ones... (I'm slow!) I am not a "professional" cosplayer (does that even exist?).

I fell in love with photography in 2010 and own both Nikon and Canon DSLRs. I've been buying equipment gradually - and, like cosplay, I enjoy learning and experimenting as I go.

I'm not interested in promoting myself so please don't do it for me. I am not a model and I do not want to be. I do not want money or fame. I do not do nude work. For some reason, this is a hard concept for people to grasp but I assure you, it is as simple as that. I just like having my page here. I like dabbling in art and learning new things. I love following the amazing work by artists on this website! I want to share the work I do with fellow artists in artist communities. I want to collaborate with other artists too!

Please do not use, reproduce, manipulate or otherwise utilize my work without permission. Thank you!!

Features: XBOX World Magazine May 2012 My sincere thanks to editor and writer, Michael Gapper. Angry Girl of the Week @ Angryweb.net! http://angryweb.net/2011/09/28/angry-girl-of-the-week-erica/ Many thanks to Daniel Nasserian! ------------------------------------ My Official Facebook Page is here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Nemo-Valkyrja/125867870847376 I am hoping it will help discourage fakes. I have a few impersonators on dating websites, cam websites, Facebook, Myspace and so on - they are not me. Any other "Nemo Valkyrja"s are fake. Other handles using my photos are also fake. My artist profiles are only on Deviantart,

My artist name is Nemo Valkyrja. Valkyrja (pronounced "Valkyrya") and means Valkyrie in old Norse. My heritage is Norwegian and I love mythology, so I think it's a good fit? I've even cosplayed a Valkyrie :) I started going to conventions in 2003, but was not an active cosplayer until 2007.

I have no intentions of being a model or doing nude work. I don't accept commissions. I don't consider my work professional enough in quality and I don't have the time and res

you have an excellent collection of photos 
You're an awesome cosplayer!  You've cosplayed a lot of my favourite female characters.  Ever think of doing Rikku or Ashe from Final Fantasy?  Maybe Psylocke, or Motoko Kusanagi?
You have a nice portfolio of photos! You have a good eye for photography, keep up the good work!
I read your tagline. I love Nightwish as well! =D hit me up with a Note if you feel like it.
