Hello, I'm Riley 'CanineHybrid'! I am a character artist and also run a small workshop part-time that specializes in bringing unique characters to life as wearable creature suits for cosplay and performance art. My work includes concept design, illustration, sculpting, molding, casting, animatronics, and sewing.



The development of an idea to a finished product has always fascinated me, and none more so than the process of creating a character and making it a real walking, talking, interactive personality that you bring to life by your own hands and body's movements.


I would like to try and find the time to build more creature costumes and improve my skills, and I would love your help for those who might just share the same passion!


My work has been known in the cosplay community and on YouTube, and I have been featured in events and competitions at various fan conventions around the country. I offer tutorials, purchasable products, and insight into how I construct my suits to aid those interested in breaking into the art and I strive to always push the limit on what can be done next.

I have now joined this Patreon program to enlist the help of my honored and cherished friends, fans, and supporters through the years. In return I will have the increased ability to continue creating, building, and dreaming up all sorts of cool costumes, videos, and artwork for both your enjoyment and learning.

Secret Meeting
  • Exclusive Patreon content
  • You'll be invited to a Patreon-only Telegram and Discord chatroom! Occasionally I will also host an exclusive stream session, planned in advance and hosted every couple of months so we can hang out or even game together. The stream aims to be more personal than my public livestreams tend to be (where I often get too caught up in working). I'll share with you exclusive news and reveal exciting projects and announcements here before anywhere else as well as talk about whatever you feel like! :) You'll also qualify for free or discounted shipping for products in my webstore, depending on were you live.

  • You've just leveled up in awesome points!

That is... if you promise to keep some secrets ;) Your Patreon-Only hangout access? You just got an invitation to join me live on my str. Mail gifts and commissions?

I plan to do something awesome for my early patreon contributors, kept entirely a secret for now, but a way of saying thank you to those who believed in me from the start. <3
