The Curvy Cutie with a Bulletproof Booty




Hey gang! I am Kevlar, a Burlesque Specialist from Chicago!
I call myself a burlesque specialist because I am part of creating all aspects of burlesque. I am a maker, and a dancer. This Patreon is set up to help transition me into a true full time burlesque/circus/cosplay artist and small business owner. 

Leopard Lightning
Leopard Lightning is the name of my small business, as well as the name of my production company! The name comes from two parts of my identity, my name (Kevlar B Lightning) and from my very recognizable tattoo (the leopard print across my torso). As a company, I hand make nearly every type of burlesque accessory or costume piece, as well as accessories used for cosplay. A lot of my current workload is custom pieces, but I am also looking to create more "stock", still one-of-a-kind pieces.

Disability and Success
Recently I have become more vocal as a disabled performer. I deal daily with issues in my GI tract, as well as issues with chronic fatigue and SI joint arthritis. So things are a bit more difficult for me in terms of performing and in terms of life. Right now my symptoms are not in a place that allows me to finish school (engineering degrees) or maintain a standard 40 hour work week. Which is why I turned to burlesque and costuming as a second career. It also messes with my head a lot in terms of functionality and value, which sucks! This Patreon will help supplement the income that is necessary to continue performing, with a little helping in my non-stage life as well.

Chicago based burlesque performer Kevlar is a playful tease and a bold performer. The Bulletproof Beauty is a lightly alternative theme queen. All of her sparkle and glitz is handmade from her small business, Leopard Lightning. She creates acts seen across bars and theaters in Chicago and the country on her own and as part of groups like Dramageddon Arts (Directing Manager) and Bim Bam Boom (Producer/Social Media Manager). Be prepared to be shocked by the Electric Soul of Burlesque, Kevlar Bitch, LIGHTNING

Goals

Bills Get Paid Goal!

This helps me cover a lot of different bills it takes to keep me functioning as a person and as a performer! It helps with medical insurance, the two kinds of performer insurance I need (fire and circus), my phone bill, and helps keep me in those discount rhinestones!

This goal also helps me pay for festival submissions, workshops and classes to keep me learning, and helps cover all the bits of photo shoots!
