PATRONS, PLEASE VIEW THE WELCOME MESSAGES! :)

Just a quick shout out to all my Patrons! I seriously love you all so much. You've all been so wonderful and I can't express how grateful I am! You allow me to do what I love and so much of it! xD Thanks so much <3

I'm Arlena Fae. I'm a cosplayer from California and I make YouTube videos. My videos on YouTube primarily revolve around the cosplay-making process. These videos can include anything from videos showcasing my costumes to tutorials on how I create certain pieces.

So What is Patreon?
Patreon is a type of crowd-funding website, but on a month to month basis. You're basically subscribing to some of your favorite creators in order to receive a variety of rewards for your support each month--whether it be early access, exclusive digital files or psychical goods.

What are You Supporting?
If you decide to become a patron, you'll be supporting my content--cosplay, photography, templates and tutorials! Your support allows me to create new costumes, cosplay photography and videos revolving around this passion! Creating such content is extremely time-consuming and takes away from other aspects in life (i.e. work). Support from patrons allows me to dedicate more time to the craft. With your continued help I'll be able to create better quality content and more frequently.

What is My Goal?
My goal is to be able to complete at least one large build a month and release all videos around that build within the same month. At the moment I am a one-woman-show! I take all my cosplay photos, do all the photo editing, do all the video recording and editing, do all the wig and makeup styling and, of course, create all the costumes! Unless I'm purchasing a small, fun cosplay or having a friend acting as my tripod for public shoots, I receive 0 outside help! With an average of 10-20 photos per shoot and several videos for each cosplay to edit, things can get stock-piled real quick! As my support on Patreon grows and I'm able to dedicate more time to it, all the things previously listed will seem much less overwhelming!

I know that creating a cosplay can be really intimidating sometimes and put one off from attempting to cosplay a character they love. That's why creating content that can help others learn and create their own cosplays is actually really important to me. Some of the best comments are ones telling me how much my videos or templates have helped them! I plan to better the quality of my tutorials and create more of them. I want to be able to make easy-to-follow tutorials and well-filmed work logs in order to help fellow cosplayers out when they're crafting their own cosplays. My goal is to be able to release at least 2 videos a week on my YouTube channel. Given, not every video will be about cosplay since I do enjoy the occasional makeup tutorial, haul or fashion-related videos--but a majority of the videos will be cosplay driven. 

What am I Working On?
My cosplay goals tend to change as I discover new characters and companies, such as Riot Games and Blizzard continuing to release new characters and skins!

Currently my large/main cosplay goals are:
Championship Shyvana from League of Legends
Fight Card from Card Captor Sakura
Harley Quinn from Injustice: Gods Among Us
Lightning from Final Fantasy 13-2
Purple Heart from Hyperdimension Neptunia
Trapping Ranger Rena from Elsword
Tyrande from Heroes of the Storm
Xayah from League of Legends
Mechanic Brigitte from Overwatch

My Dream Cosplay is:
Zagara from Heroes of the Storm
