Well, hey there, little gems!

I am Kelly Kirstein, beauty queen turned cosplayer turned Furby collector. I began closet cosplaying as a preteen, already obsessed with fandoms and so happy to find a world of make believe I could get lost in. I ended up expanding this when I became an adult and started up my own business running a children's entertainment company. Seriously, my day job is a princess - how cool is that? Well, that and a professional model. I began modeling in my early twenties and was even awarded the prestigious honour to represent the United States at the 2015 Miss Supranational pageant where I placed as a semifinalist.

Life so far has been... pretty awesome. It was after my retirement from pageants that I was able to start focusing more on cosplaying. It had always been in my backpocket, but not something I had to time or money to pursue in the past. I've had such an amazing year meeting people from wonderful fandoms like Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, Sailor Moon and more where I've been able to not only play pretend but also learn a lot about myself in the process. Through cosplay I've been able to travel, make friends and hopefully brighten up a few people's day even if it's just with stupid Furby jokes.

Of course, if I want to do all of these things, prop and costume making, photoshoots and conventions, I'm going to need support. As wonderful of a hobby as it is, it is not a cheap one to do well!  That's where Patreon comes in. With the support of my Patrons on Patreon I'll be able to work on bigger and better projects while giving back to the people that support me. Thanks for reading!

NOW OFFERING A BOUDOIR TIER!

After much careful thought and deliberation, I have decided to add a boudoir tier to my Patreon. I weighed a lot of pros and cons about it, but it kept coming back that all the cons were negativity from others. I am finally coming to a place in my life where I feel comfortable and even sometimes sexy in my own body, thus this feels like a very empowering step.

I want to be upfront and clear when I say that boudoir does not mean lewds or nudes. I am by no means trying to knock anyone who does that, however. I have a deep respect for many photographers and model who do so. It takes a very tough skin and bold personality to put yourself out there and I do not have that yet.


I am really inspired by the feminine form (obviously ) and I want to create boudoir content that is too. The buzzwords that continue to pop up when I envision what I want to create are soft, feminine and naturally, sapphic. While everyone is of course welcome to the tier, I want to create something that feels sexy for fellow queer people in particular.

Due to the nature of this content, it will remain on Patreon or my boudoir Instagram, which only patrons will be able to access. I have fans of all ages and I am most comfortable keeping this sort of content separate.
