About Me

Hello! My name is Salt, also known as Salt Syrup! Thank you for stopping by my page!
I'm a Bay Area barista from the Rocky Mountains of USA with a passion for coffee, comics, cartoons, cats, video games, and anime.
My passion for cosplay has only grown over the years as a wonderfully diverse way to release my creative energy whether it's with makeup, garment sewing, prop making, wig wefting/dyeing, painting, and more. I love working closely with mindfully selected photographers in creating a illustrated scene, rather than a photo focused on showcasing myself in costume.
I believe that a landscape can amplify even the simplest of costumes, and it can totally emphasize the atmosphere of the media it is from. 



My Cosplays

My range of interests fall wide and varied, but I tend to pick my cosplays based on the design, how closely I feel with the character, or a landscape location I've been inspired by (but with how selective I can be, I usually pick a costume that fits all three :^]  ) I want to post here like a blog all my WIP, makeup tests, tutorials, full costume craftsmanship write-ups, (basically all the behind the bar stuff!), along with full sets of photoshoots and eventually videos.

Con Schedule
usually attend three(plus) cons a year, and I'd like to make it to more cons with the intention of having more involvement such as hosting (or co-hosting) panels. My current 2018 schedule:
  • Katsucon (D.C., MD)
  • Mechacon (New Orleans, LA)

            

I created Patreon so I could have an accessible outlet to easier share and express my passions! Being a barista, I work long hours for basic minimum wage, so I don't have all the time, energy, or funds that I wish to be as creative as I would like. I fund all my cosplays on my own, so any donations that I receive go to caffeinating me, helping me purchase a material, or help me afford some extra time to put into my cosplays.
I want to keep most of my content free so everyone can have access to tutorials, ideas, etc. because I didn't have that back in my day. I struggled a lot to figure out how to do certain projects or how to even begin to attempt something. Cosplay is a love and passion for something that should be shared with everyone!
So with that, I've set all the tiers as donation levels with some lil' extra gifts that you don't have to commit to monthly, and if you do, I would be deeply grateful! I will do my best to continue creating content worthy of your support!
