My name is Janette, and I am a cosplayer, model, musician, and
overall artist that goes by the name “Vailence”.
For all of you who support me and are ready to contribute, I already want to say thank you. Creation is my life: from music to videos, dancing to costumes, I wouldn’t be able to live if I couldn’t create. So, needless to say, this is huge for me. But… ENOUGH WITH ALL THE MUSHY STUFF!
My love for photos started when I was about 13 years old and started posing for a camera to learn how to draw faces from different angles. That was the first time I realized that modeling is more than just a pretty girl, it is capturing a potential work of art in the moment. When I was 14, a good friend named Briana Robertson showed me the world of modeling for the first time and I fell in love. After that my entire world revolved around photo experimentation of all kinds: from heavily stylized photoshoots to basic lingerie and fashion work.
Now those photoshoots have evolved in a love for cosplay in being able to combine my two favorite things:
photoshoots and adorable characters from my favorite past times -video games, manga, etc. As an adult I desperately hope to prove to the world that dreams can become reality with some elbow grease, and that men and women of all ages should never feel guilty about being who they are; no matter how strange or nerdy they may feel that person is!
