Shelkie Flexes by QueenRiot
Shelkie Flexes
Real quick, I want to thank all of you guys for following my cosplay shenanigans. You all provide a lot of support and kind words and it keeps me going when I'm not feeling so confident about myself.

I have always, always been a big girl. I was very tall in high school, and I had a large frame. I used to struggle with self image and feel very negative about my look. I felt I wasn't ideal for what a woman "should be." But it wasn't till I started cosplaying that I felt more comfortable with this. So what if I'm nearly 6 ft, muscular, and have a huge ass? Embrace it! Learn to love the characters I'm dressing as. I felt at home being the strong, tough chicks that I loved reading about in Manga and Comics.

So thanks again for all the watches and comments. They mean a lot to this girl who used to feel like such an awkward outcast!

Thanks to Mild Mannered Cosplay Photography for snagging this shot of Shelkie!
What kind of photos would you guys like to see next? I have so many new ones!

Hello! I'm Ashley Riot, an illustrator, model, writer, and gamer currently living in the windiest of cities. My passion and career are video games and comic art, but I also love to model & cosplay as a hobby.

I began cosplaying in 2002 for fun. After a few years, I got more into the hobby of costuming and started to learn the techniques for making better outfits. I made it my goal to portray characters to the best of my ability. Over time, this also turned into a passion for modeling in all forms where I put together outfits for a range of genres and styles.

When I'm not drawing or making new cosplay outfits, you can find me playing video games! There are so many series I love. I'm a former writer for GamePro and GameGirl. I now work making comics & games.

Thanks for looking at my page, and here's to many years of costuming to come.
