Rika is an artist and cosplayer based out of the Florida Panhandle, and has been perfecting her cosplay since 2009. She has an intense love for every character she portrays, and always tries to keep the “play” in cosplay, embodying the full character while in costume. To her, cosplay means first and foremost to “be who you want to be”.
In early 2013, Rika moved to Florida and began building friendships and professional relationships with some of the most talented cosplayers and photographers in the southeast. With this new-found inspiration and support, her cosplay portfolio expanded dramatically, which led to winning multiple local awards and making appearances at conventions along the Gulf Coast. Her favorite characters to cosplay have the duality of being sultry and seductive, yet extremely strong, powerful, and a little dangerous.
When not cosplaying, Rika enjoys painting, table-top gaming, international foods, and all things Disney. You can view her work at facebook.com/Rikativity/ and instagram.com/rikativity/
