Uh, Who Are You? What's up, lovely people of the internet!?
I'm Amber, and online I am known as AmberSkies Cosplay! I hail from the west coast of the USA, and I've been a professional cosplayer, artist, actress, singer, model, and general geeky weirdo on the internet for almost a decade now!

I was raised in a tabletop gaming store/internet arcade owned by my father since the time I could walk. My first memories include being surrounded and immersed with nerd culture through 90's manga books and anime, Warhammer 40K, Magic the Gathering, Dungeons and Dragons, vintage game systems, World of Warcraft, online MMORPG's and any superhero, fantasy, or Sci-Fi VHS I could get my grubby little hands on.  I gobbled down microwave Ramen bowls by the carton full, and happily cried myself to sleep many a nights reading my hand-me-down Elfquest comic books and immersing myself in countless wonderful fantasy worlds which allowed me to slay dragons, save the world, and soar to infinity and beyond even at 7 years old.

From the very start, it's been my goal to do everything I can to make beautiful things, help make the world more colorful, loud, vibrant, and filled with fun! I am a people pleaser, and love to bring excitement and squeals to others even more than myself!  I genuinely don't know when I am the happiest, sitting in my studio with messy hair and covered in glue, glitter, and paint-- or completely dolled up in an elaborate costume and fantasy makeup, making magic with a talented photographer. Since I was tiny in that gaming shop, I've LIVE to craft or create something every single day... Be it a tangible trinket, a costume piece, a necklace to gift to someone, a mini painting, a quick sketch or artsy photograph-- it's how I've been expressing myself and functioning for forever now!



My professional cosplay journey began about 5 years ago when I fell head over heels in love costuming by creating my first armor build as an elaborate Halloween costume. Sergeant Calhoun from Wreck it Ralph came to life, and fast forwarding to now, I am a self proclaimed detail freak! I only create highly meticulous and screen accurate costumes no matter what it takes-- and never settle for anything less than the VERY best that I can do. Thanks to this, I've had the incredible opportunity to work professionally with companies such as Marvel and Disney!



And here she was! the VERY FIRST official moments of Calhoun at Phoenix Comicon 2013, my very first true cosplay build complete with LED system, thermoplastics, and more! This was where "AmberSkies" truly began!



I had attended local comic conventions many times before growing up in the nerd community, but had never participated in this amazing hobby in such a way before! I threw my heart and soul into creating only my very best since day once, growing with each new experience, deadline, and material-- and now, I'm hooked beyond compare. Now that the gaming store I grew up in is no longer in operation, my father lovingly referred to as "DadSkies Cosplay" (who has been a professional artist his entire life as well) joins me in the crafting magic and I learn even more through his advice and teachings.

At this point in time, I've got about 50 handmade cosplays and 'from-scratch' props under my belt, which were created for both myself and others through commission work and can't wait to see where else we fly!



In addition, to cosplay I'm also an avid all around artist-- specifically a painter of acrylic on canvas works! If its not obvious enough already, I'm obsessed with Disney and have created over 60 original canvases over time! I take commissions on the side and love to create not only art for myself to wear-- but for others to adorn their walls with! It's been a really fun perk here on Patreon to watch my "Speed Painting Tutorials" where I walk my patrons through each brush stroke to make my paintings come to life too! I sell my works at any conventions I am lucky enough to attend as a guest-- and love sharing what I create with my fans, friends, and con goers around the world!

My creations are available for commission or purchase at my online shops!

What exactly IS Patreon, you may wonder? For me, think of it as our own little club where we can discuss fun things, host giveaways, trade secrets, plan out the future, and get motivated to create amazing new things together! If you like exclusive content on literally every breath I take while I’m locked in my garage or workshop forging armor for a month that you can’t find anywhere else, then this is the place for you! For a long time, I've been looking for a way to share more, give more, and be everything you all want me to be. I want an intimate community where I can share every step of my progress with you. From every photoshoot, to every failure, to every thought that goes into the process (even the intangible elements), my hopes/fears/aspirations and everything inbetween-- Patreon has allowed us a way to do so without the limitations of social media sites. 

I have been researching, diligently working on, and attempting to nitpick and perfect this Patreon page for about a year now before it's  launch! My goal was to finally budget my time correctly to this amazing hobby of mine, expand my horizons, and become more active online all while providing exciting and worthy rewards for you. Most importantly, I hope to pave a way for me to connect with you all personally that will be everything we've always wanted it to be and more!  


As fun as it's been, things can only go on as the "starving-artist type" for so long. I work all day, every day, doing whatever I can to get by, survive, and make my ends meet. I am an elementary school teacher by day (which takes up 10 hours of my daylight minimum, not to mention extra curricular activities), I volunteer at hospitals/events as a princess performer and theatrical actress, I paint commissions of acrylic on canvas as well as large wall murals, I handmake my own costumes and props (as well as the cosplays of others), I craft and sell jewelry at a local antique store, I build and paint sets for high school theatre productions, I do photoshoots as both a model and photographer while running my own print store! At the end of it all, I'm left exhausted and spread far too thin.

 
As I function now, I simply don't have the time and financial stability to create the art, photos, and costumes in the way I know I can.

With your monetary support-- Patreon is now AT LAST going to make it possible for me to warrant the time and energy to share EVERYTHING with you without being stressed to the point of tears due to the cost of my many expensive art professions. I know you all have asked for this before too, so here we are now!  Over the years, you have all been so so supportive, and I want to give back to you the time and energy it takes to share MORE with you.

No matter how big or small your pledge, you will be an active and integral part of the process of my creation from now on-- no matter where you are located in the globe! WE CAN ALL BE CREATIVE TOGETHER EVEN IF YOU LIVE 1000's OF MILES AWAY.


At the end of the day, you absolutely DO NOT have to become a Patron, I will still put out my normal regular content on Facebook, Instagram, and the rest! This is just something fun and extra for those who want to be ultra dedicated and have a true impact on flourishing my creative spirit and really helping a starving artist like me out!

But BY joining however, you will likely be receiving triple the content, all of which will be exclusive to Patreon peeps only and guaranteed to reach you no matter what, without the uncertainty of social media sites! YOU will be the one directly supporting my ability to keep creating my crazy costumes and art! You will be right there seeing every step that it takes along the way through videos, photography, silly moments, snapchatting, livestreaming, and more. Please consider joining in whatever way you can and let me keep improving for you all as the Jack of All Trades that I am at heart!!

All of my Patreon rewards are divided into separate tiers, and in the side bar/description area you can find a detailed list of rewards (what you can expect to gain from each of those those tiers!) They're pretty dandy if I do say so myself.

Lastly, here's a taste of some of my ultimate favorite Cosplay and modeling moments so far, most of which was made possible by my Patrons support! THEY decided and helped me to create these looks with their generous support!




Okay, I guess that about sums it up for now! Feel free to read on along the sidebars to get a glimpse of what else Patreon has to offer to you! Along the top you will find some links to my other social media and goodies!

SINCERELY, THANK YOU FOR READING (I never was short winded) AND EVEN CONSIDERING SHOWING YOUR SUPPORT IN THIS WAY! 

You are the absolute best and I truly couldn't do this without you.

Goals
$523 of $600 per month
THIS IS INSANE. HYPE HYPE HYPE.
Here, we can help Amber get her very own streaming equipment! WAHHH THIS IS INSANE! 

I've received SO many messages and comments over the last few years to expand my little cosplay empire in many different ways, but by far the most requests have to do with uploading more videos! More extensive video content is something that I feel has been lacking in my cosplay/art journey thus far, and I have always wanted to expand into this medium a bit more! There's nothing that will make me feel more in tuned with you guys than being able to possibly begin streaming on Twitch, film video tutorials, paint-alongs as I work from start to finish on original works of art, derpy karaoke nights, or progress videos as I lock myself in my hot garage for hours on end slaving away on armor builds, etc.

If you'd like to join in that adventure with me and support me in the filming of video of my cosplays in action both at conventions and behind the scenes, consider pledging and together we can reach this awesome first goal! This will help me get decent streaming equipment such as a nice microphone, webcam, and maybe some software to go live with!

Uh, Who Are You? What's up, lovely people of the internet!?
I'm Amber, and online I am known as AmberSkies Cosplay! I hail from the west coast of the USA, and I've been a professional cosplayer, artist, actress, singer, model, and general geeky weirdo on the internet for almost a decade now!

I was raised in a tabletop gaming store/internet arcade owned by my father since the time I could walk. My first memories include being surrounded and immersed with nerd culture through 90's manga books and anime, Warhammer 40K, Magic the Gathering, Dungeons and Dragons, vintage game systems, World of Warcraft, online MMORPG's and any superhero, fantasy, or Sci-Fi VHS I could get my grubby little hands on.  I gobbled down microwave Ramen bowls by the carton full, and happily cried myself to sleep many a nights reading my hand-me-down Elfquest comic books and immersing myself in countless wonderful fantasy worlds which allowed me to slay dragons, save the world, and soar to infinity and beyond even at 7 years old.

I barely have words to thank you enough for your generosity and sheer love for what I do!

You are now officially my Mr. Rabbit. Jessica Rabbit's right hand funny guy. You are top of the line in AmberSkies land!

Supporters that pledge $100 or more will receive All of the above Level Rewards, PLUS:
● One-on-One Month Long Cosplay Class! I'll walk you through step by step as you create your own cosplay, prop, or art piece from start to finish! I'll be right there entirely at your disposal each month should you need additional help! Whether it be sketching out initial design elements, picking out fabrics/materials, breaking down your build into steps, helping you research/linking you relevant information, or more! If you run into tricky situations with crafting along the way, want advice on how to best tackle an aspect of your cosplay, need a pattern drawn up for you, etc. consider it done! Whatever you need to be successful, I will be here for you as your personal art, prop, and cosplay coach for four whole weeks! We can Google hangout/stream for bits of time if you need a pep talk, or whatever it is you'd like to be a happy camper because YOU DESERVE IT!

● By request, An exclusive monthly art piece! This will be an original, one of a kind, full color mini canvas piece entirely of your choosing! Take a look at my print store sometime to see my online gallery of over 60 different paintings I've done so far to get an idea of what I bring to the table!
LETS MAKE AN AMBERSKIES ART GALLERY IN YOUR HOUSE!


● Lastly, I will cosplay a character of your choosing once per year, (once I know you're committed to this tier and here to stay! No joining and quitting after a few weeks! Haha!)
