Beetlecat Originals is creating fursuits, costume photography, and fursuit videos

patrons

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.

Goals
59 of 85 patrons
Lets push the limits of fursuit technology and collaborate on a seriously complicated fursuit! It can be a realistic quadsuit. Something with huge detailed wings. Or how about moving eyes/eyelids, moving ears, moving lips..? 

Decide as a group what new innovation/technology you'd like me to incorporate and I'll find the methods and/or the people to help make it happen.
