Biography:
Reika began her crafting path in elementary school where she made felt badges, cultivating early talents that would eventually lead her to craft her first costume: Okita Souji from Rurouni Kenshin. Since then, she's brought many of her favorite characters to life, even if they are male. Her favorite costume accomplishment to date is Origami Cyclone (Tiger & Bunny). She's become quite good at creating her own clothing patterns and she's learned many things attending Cosplay America alumnus Goldy's cosplay and prop-making classes. When taking on characters with large props or intricate masks, she develops the props and most difficult elements first to make sure she doesn't run out of time and rush the parts that need the most attention. If you'd like to learn more about traditional outfits, Reika recommends visiting historic clothing exhibitions and museums. At the end of the day, Reika believes there's no greater reason to cosplay than to take on characters you love.
