NemoValkyrja's Profile Picture
NemoValkyrja

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
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!!

My Official Facebook Page is here: www.facebook.com/pages/Nemo-Va… 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, Cosplay.com, and Acparadise.com.

So I believe this is my first ever shout.... You can never stop be a breath taken photographer, you astound me in ways that are star ridden. Happy New Year. Always to you.

Love your work, and I admire both your talent and your ability to portray it! Would love to see more of your dabbling.

Also, Nightwish is awesome, and Nemo has to be my favourite song of theirs.

Have you seen the Kotaku article about people criticizing Felicia Day by using your photo? It's horribly maddening that woman get treated like this.

Nemo - I admire your work, and wonder if there will be more to come. And then tonight, I saw an ad for Syfy to put up a new series "Heros of Cosplay".

Will you be participating?

Would you mind if I fall in love with the concept of you, have a dream about you, letting it be my wings... Letting it be my shackles.

I know you probably hear this a thousand times, but where-ever you go, bear in mind; There you are. Also you're hot. <3

Do you play the violin well?
