Uh, Who Are You? What's up, lovely people of the internet!?
I'm Amber, and online I am known as AmberSkies! 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, 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 beasts and save the world 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!
My professional cosplay journey began about 7 years ago when I fell head over heels in love costuming by creating my first armor build as an elaborate Halloween costume. 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!
At this point in time, I've got about 70 lovingly 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 90 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.
My goal with Patreon is 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! Who knows, maybe with your support, one day I will not have to spread myself so thin and be a FULL TIME creator.
That is the end goal of it all. <3
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 I create with you without stress. Over the years, you have all been so so supportive, and I want to give back to you through opening the door to ALL THINGS AmberSkies here on Patreon!
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!!
Here at 50 patrons, we can help Amber get started Streaming on Twitch once a week!
More extensive video content is something that I have had as a goal in my cosplay/art journey for a long time, and I have always wanted to expand into this medium more! When we hit this goal, I will start to livestream my work through 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.
