hello, and welcome to
gina's portfolio

Hi, I'm Gina, and if you've found your way to this page,
it means you have stumbled upon my Neopets portfolio!
So, welcome to my humble portfolio that's designed to tell you all about me!

I've created this personalized Gina Bitmoji avatar especially for you,
as she will accompany you, serving as your personal guide,
while you explore my neopets journey, become acquainted with my pets,
learn about my account improvement goals, and more! ♥

Have fun perusing my portfolio, and thank you for stopping by!

PS: If you have any questions, or even if you just want to chat,
please don't hesitate to neomail me! ツ

all about me:

Allow me to introduce myself...

Like I said before, I'm Gina, but my nickname has
been Gene Beans since I was a kiddo — hence my username. ツ

I'm 23 years old, originally from Boston, Massachusetts,
but presently based in Washington, District of Columbia.

In real life, I conduct clinical research and hope to attend graduate school,
in the future. I'm also enjoying a little breather after graduating from college.

Consequently, since I have all this extra time freed up from not being
in school, I decided now is as good a time as any to re-join Neopets!

I say "re-join", because I first played Neopets while in elementary school,
but I quit when I hit middle school. However, nostalgia got
the best of me 12 years later, and I created this account: gene_beans.

Since then, I have not looked back, and have found an amazing neofamily,
also known as the wonderful friends I've made on this site. ♥
In fact, were it not for all the lovely friends I've made on Neo,
I probably would have quit by now!

As for what I'm up to nowadays, you can find me trying to
painstakingly increase my avatar count, but mostly I'm wasting
time customizing pets, lurking the neoboards, adding to my gallery,
and of course, chatting with my friends!

my neopets:

Here are all of my babies! ♥

I am obsessed with my pets and strive to perfectly match their color with their names, customizations, and p2s & p3s!

I also don't change my pets' customs — once I create characters for them, I try to create forever customs that best
represent their stories and personalities. Although, admittedly, I'm never really done tweaking their customizations. ツ

Hover over each of my Neopet's images to learn about how he or she came to be part of my family, & click their names to visit their pet look ups to learn more about each of their individual characters!

Isashi was one of my *dream* unconverted pets, and thanks to his underrated, Tier 2 UC status, I was lucky enough to trade for him using an uncommon RW I had rotting on a side. I really wanted a space-themed Neopet, and once I put together this custom for a UC Robot Kacheek, I was in love! Isashi came home on December 14, 2017, and I am totally obsessed with my galactic, toxic-planet-exploring, lil robo. ツ


Edmery came to be because she belonged to my friend Mae. However, I loved the name Edmery so much, I convinced Mae to trade her to me! As for her character, when I played Neopets as a kid, I *loved* baby pets. Thus, for the sake of nostalgia, I had to turn Edmery into one too. ♥ I decided to go with a cherubic, bundle-of-love theme for her custom, a true ode to my younger self's love for baby pets!


Einsteinian was a consequence of my needing a Lab Rat pet. Moreover, I thought it would be fun to give him a mad scientist character so I wouldn't feel so awful about repeatedly zapping him! However, when I was putting together his custom, I fell in love with the wearables available to JubJubs & couldn't bear to zap him anymore. I then painted him Glowing, & thus, Einsteinian became one of my permanent pets!


Skeletanya joined the family when the amazing Robin was kind enough to offer to paint a pet a color of my choice. After playing around with some ideas, and inspired by the fact that it was around Halloween time, I decided to create a glamorous, heart-breaking goth using a Transparent Aisha. Thus, Skeletanya was born, and her character is a symbol of my love of big hair, Tim Burton, & being mean to boys! :K


Esmairelda is my *favorite* Neopet, because I am obsessed with her custom & character! Indeed, she is my gypsy, fortune-telling neochild, inspired by the fact that I myself am an avid astrologer, tarot card reader, & spirituality/meditation enthusiast. I also have a problem with over accessorizing with ethnic-inspired jewelry in real life, so my friends often refer to me as a gypsy. Thus, Esmairelda truly is my spirit Neopet!


Creepious was born because I love unpopular pets, especially Kikos. I also like to have a good mix of dark-themed & girly-themed pets, as well as a good balance of male & female pets, so I don't just keep hoarding one type of pet! Accordingly, I was determined to make a male Neopet that was a little spooky, so I decided to create a creepy, cute Zombie Kiko turned endearing, crazy carnival employee!


Delectability was created because I love her background & wanted to make a customization that used it! Also, given my affinity for unpopular pets/colors, I wanted to paint her custard, which I achieved thanks to the amazing Ash ♥. Finally, I was lucky that the real word "Delectability" wasn't taken, a name that pulled her character together, allowing her to become the edible creature she is today!


Herbalistic is another one of my pets who represents a dimension of myself. ;) As someone who researches psychedelics, herbal medicines, & mind-body therapies, I loved the idea of a pet permanently in a chill, trippy state. Moreover, given his name, Woodland color, & unpopular species status, I couldn't resist creating this character. Indeed, I couldn't be happier with how he turned out. ツ



Rosailena was created because I was lucky enough to receive yet another Fountain Faerie quest. Draiks are hands down my favorite Neopet, and when I looked to see what colors were available, I fell in love with Pastel Draiks. I quickly dipped Rosailena Pastel, and set about creating this soft, feminine customization for her, which is also a tribute to how girly I wish I could be in real life!

Kairria the VWN UC Faerie Wocky is currently UFT. I traded Kairria for Feaniir the VWN UC Faerie Pteri on January 1st, 2018! Neomail me if you are interested in trading and have an offer. ^__^

thank yous:

 Honestly, the best part of playing Neopets are all the kind, wonderful people I have been lucky enough to
 become acquainted with — especially those who have helped me or have been ridiculously kind to me in someway.

 Thus, to honor these people, below I've listed images of the all the gifts, kindness, or help I've received.
 A huge thank you to everyone on this page, and anyone else that I may have unintentionally forgotten. ♥

 The images are listed in order of most recent to least; hover over each to see my thank you messages,
 and click each image individually to visit the look up of the amazing human who was kind to me!


 Here you will find screenies of some of the notable neohappenings I've encountered on the site.
 Mostly though, they're probably ridiculous posts from the goofs over at my guild, Valiant. ♥

 PS: if you find yourself screenshotted on here but you do not want to be, shoot me a neomail
 and I will be sure to take it down. ツ


If you've made it this far, congratulations!
