As her following grew, Bunny was encouraged to try her hand at a website with more reach – Instagram. She created her account in 2017, and began posting photos of her cosplaying. Instagram is one of the most popular social networking sites in recent years, boasting a billion in registered users, while over 500 million utilise the website on a daily basis. Users can post photos and videos to their own account, which can then be shared publicly or by pre-approved followers.
Rise to Fame and Other Projects
Her first online cosplay photo was that of the character Mavis Loughran, from the animated film “Hotel Transylvania”, released in 2012 and starring Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, and Selena Gomez. It tells the story of Count Dracula who owns Hotel Transylvania, a place where monsters can take a rest from their encounters with human civilization. Soon, she was gaining a lot of attention, and her followership was increasing at a rapid pace.
She gained modelling work for J-LIST, which is an online retailer of Japanese goods for people outside of Japan. The company was established in 1996, and is known for selling anime, manga, and otaku goods. Around the same time, she started working as a product model for “Fakku”, an English-language hentai publisher, which provides users with access to adult publications from Japan, allowing them to be seen by a much larger audience. Bunny has also done clothes modeling work for brands such as Super Orange, Syndrome Store, and Sleeque Mystique. As the years progressed, her fan base has grown significantly.
Aside from her modelling and cosplay projects, Bunny has released her own line of merchandise in collaboration with several companies. She worked with IHazToys for a figurine in her likeness, while also creating a sticker line with the help of artist REIQ. She created a Body Pillow too, with the help of the artist Slugbox. During her time with FAKKU, she started a short comic on the website drawn by Erotibot, featuring her partner and frequent collaborator Swimsuit Succubus.
Being a promoter of gravure modelling content catering to men, she created a Patreon account to help those interested in purchasing her not safe for work (NSFW) photos and videos. Patreon is a platform that allows content creators to gain crowd funding through running a subscription-based service. In this manner, creators can build relationships while also providing exclusive experiences for Patreons. The website began in 2013, and based in San Francisco is very popular among YouTube personalities, artists, musicians, podcasters, and writers. The company earns income by charging 5% for each donation and 5% in transaction fees, with the creator gaining 90% of all donations. Fans can become a patron on her account through a donation of at least $1 and at the most $40, depending on the content they want to receive.
