Hi there! I'm Deanna Petro, the owner of & creative drive behind Beetlecat Originals.
I design, build, and sew very detailed animal costumes for people. My costumes (or fursuits) are primarily sought out for conventions, photos, group outings; but also have been in commercials, plays, etc.
My interest with Patreon is that it will allow me to interact with my clients on a 1-on-1, ongoing basis long after the costume is finished and without the requirement of buying any costume at all!
A fursuit is a large piece of complicated wearable art. While many folks are interested in the construction, ideas, and design; not everyone is able or willing to have a fursuit of their own. Here is your own backdoor pass into the feelings, techniques, and ideas behind my art.
If you enjoy my creations and want to have a more direct role in helping me create newer and more exciting costumes, photos, videos, etc in the future; please consider becoming a Patron.
