About

Hello, everyone, and thank you so much for visiting our page! We are a cosplay couple known as Cowbutt Crunchies Cosplay, and for 15 years we've been creating gowns, armor, and extreme wigs.

This Patreon is a little special - our rewards are exclusively geared toward helping you level up your cosplay! By joining you can access even more tutorials, wig walkthroughs, personalized one-on-one cosplay help, and even commission slots. 

But our biggest goal is to donate 100% of all pledges to cat-related rescues, through our pet project 
Cosplayers for Cats
!

Cosplay is our passion but not not our profession - for us this hobby has always been about creating, having fun, and helping the cosplay community grow. So instead we want to use our favorite hobby to help our favorite cause - pledging to one of our tiers directly helps cats in need, and also helps us create even more content to help benefit other cosplayers!

Want to learn but can't necessarily donate?  You can also click the "FOLLOW" button in the upper left to access all of our free posts and free tutorials!  We'll be adding more and more free stuff here, in order to give our followers a way to see our content in real time without social media algorithms getting in the way!



Free Stuff? Free Stuff!!

Because of Social Media's algorithm problems, we want to begin adding more and more free content to a site that lets our followers get our updates in realtime. To subscribe to our photo posts and free tutorials, click the "Follow" button in the upper left corner or check out the "Free Posts" tag!! If you're looking for even more goodies, keep reading below to see what you can receive from our tiers.

What kind of content can I expect?

We spend a lot of time creating cosplay with high levels of craftsmanship in mind - a lot of our projects involve corsets, gowns, detailed worbla armor, electronics, and gravity-defying wigs. We also spend a lot of time detailing our progress so that our followers can follow along, and you can find many examples of our tutorials in the Free Posts tag or over here on our Tumblr. Later this year we also hope to publish an ebook on wigworking, complete with many new tutorials for beginner and intermediate wig stylists, with all of the proceeds funneling back to Cosplayers for Cats.

This Patreon is a way for you to follow along even closer with our construction process, and even receive one-on-one advice if you have a big project that you need some guidance on. Tutorials can take a lot of time to make, and pledging lets us know that our work is important to you!

Why charity?  Why cats?

We just really, really love cats. (The name "Cowbutt Crunchies" comes from our two oldest girls!) We're always looking for new ways to give back to the cosplay community, and Patreon is a great way to both help out other cosplayers while donating to a good cause.



Here's the rewards you'll have access to, as our thank you for donating:

We'll never lock down our bigger, general tutorials, but we'll regularly update followers in this tier with extra mini tutorials and tips we pick up as we craft.

  • A signed 4x6 print or sticker mailed to you once a month (Available for USA folks; international folks, we'll chat about shipping!)
  • A custom wig or simple cosplay design quick-sketch.
  • After two months of donations, receive a free photoshoot at an upcoming convention
