Canadian Model, Dancer, Gamer & Voiceover Artist Shiori

Hi Shiori it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy.  Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?

I’m a dancer, model, and voiceover artist (and a hobbyist gamer/streamer) from Toronto, Canada. I grew up in a city called Stuttgart in Germany. I moved to Canada in my early pre-teens and have lived here ever since. I’m still a student right now, in my final year of University, doing an honours specialization in finance with a minor in dance.



How will you describe your fashion style and where do you love to shop from?

I have a thing for over-the-knee boots, I love tall boots. I like to pair them with some sort of form fitting pants (skinny jeans, leggings, tights), and a large comfy sweater over top. That would be my typical fall/winter wear. I love accessories as well, though I don’t really wear them as much as I’d like… I’m in dance class or rehearsal a lot and usually need to remove jewelry for that, and I’m too lazy to keep taking them off and on. That leads to me just not wearing jewelry on days when I’m going in and out of the studio… which ends up being most days 🙁

I tend to like Asian brands since their clothing fits me better, and I’m super happy about UNIQLO opening their first Toronto store! I definitely see myself going there a lot now.


What hobbies do you have?

I’m an avid gamer, I love both video games and traditional board games. A chill night at a board game cafe is one of my go-to hang out plans with friends. My favourite video games series of all time is Portal, and I’m currently playing League of Legends and Overwatch. I occasionally compete in amateur tournaments for these as well. I also love to dance, and I’ve been dancing for over 16 years now. And finally, I’m a huge bookworm – I read basically every genre and English/Literature was actually my favourite subject all through grade school. I kind of miss analyzing texts and writing essays, to be honest. I guess I’m a bit of an English geek haha.


Do you follow any beauty regime to looking so fantastic?

I don’t think I do anything too fancy. Skin and hair are the two things I mainly pay attention to. I’m pretty attentive about removing my makeup fully every night, cleansing my face well and then applying some moisturizer before bed. I know some people who have really extensive 10-step skin care routines every night haha, they do have really beautiful skin and I wish I could commit to something like that… maybe one day. My hair is actually one of my main flaws that I dislike and try my best to remedy. It’s very thin and dry. I do moisturizing hair masks every two weeks or so.


What is the best compliment you have received?

I once had a dance teacher tell me I had a beautiful and magnetic soul. She said that while I wasn’t necessarily the prettiest in the group, or the best dancer, I was still somehow the one everyone’s eyes turned to. It was me that people watched. That’s a comment that I remembered and held on to throughout the years. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I think its underlying meaning is something important everyone should keep in mind. It’s the idea that you didn’t have to be the prettiest or best or anything like that at all. If you live for yourself and stay true to yourself, that will come out through your words and actions, and people will see that.


If you could choose to learn anything in this world, what will it be?

More languages. I’ve always been interested in languages and was pretty good at picking them up. This is probably influenced by my childhood, where I moved countries a lot and had to keep learning new ones. I really enjoy traveling and exploring different cultures as well, so speaking more languages would definitely help.



What kind of music are you into?

I listen to a variety of music. In my current playlist I have top 40/generic pop, kpop, anime songs, video game/movie OSTs, and some classical pieces. My current favourite singer is Halsey, after hearing her in the OST for the movie Snow White and the Huntsman. I loved her collaboration with The Chainsmokers as well, of course. I’m also a huge fan of the composer Alexandre Desplat. He did a gorgeous piece called “The Mirror” that Travis Wall made really beautiful choreography to, as well as the soundtrack to The Grand Budapest Hotel.


How will you describe an ideal date?

Something creative, with bonus points if it’s something a bit more personalized for us. I think the person is more important that what we’re doing, there are a lot of things I would have a blast with, next to the right person. I would definitely appreciate a lot if it was something unique and special, as opposed to a generic movie/dinner, or coffee, etc that any random two people could default to.



Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Shiori. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”? 

Confidence is definitely the sexiest trait in my opinion. I tend to be turned off by things like insecurity, the constant need for external assurance that you’re attractive/capable/etc, or lots of self-doubt in your own choices and actions. Don’t take it to the point of arrogance, but I find something incredibly attractive in someone just having that quiet but firm faith in themselves. To have purpose behind your actions and the conviction that you’re going somewhere.
