 - MINI BIO - 

Hello, friends! My name is Emily, but the internet calls me Emperiam. I’m a graphic design gradutate living in Toronto who dreams of being the main protagonist in a shoujo anime. But in the meantime, I spend my days  broadcasting my gameplay on Twitch and building cosplays in tribute to the characters that impacted my life throughout the years.

My hobby began at an innocent age where I refused to accept Halloween as the only occasion for dress-up. I spent so much time on my eclectic Pikachu ensemble that I decided to continue my journey as not only a Pokemon icon, but also a novice costume-maker. I was teased for my dedication to a seemingly useless hobby, so I often spent my time secluded with the digital company I found in anime and video games. It wasn’t until I attended my first convention in 2011 that I realized I wasn’t alone in my nerdy little world. Arms were wide open for someone like me; I had never experienced such a genuine sense of belonging prior to it.



Fast-forward several years later and I’m still finding myself cutting, pasting and painting the elements of the fictional idols I can only fathom to be. I put my fashion modelling pursuit on hold due to the extreme demands, but transferred my knowledge of posing and makeup into the cosplay realm. At this point, I’ve gained enough XP to create pieces that I’m proud to call my own, which makes my drive to improve my craft so much deeper. There is still much to learn and I’m extremely excited to share my practice and knowledge with all of you. I feel as though this campaign is my way to give back to the community that gave so much to me in a time where I felt so forsaken.



 - WHY PATREON? 
I decided to build a Patreon because I yearn to put my heart into making content without being restricted by the cost. One of the biggest obstacles I face as an artist is the unstable scale trying to balance my time working on a new project and working to secure money to sustain myself. Because of this, generating costumes takes longer to save up for and I’m unable to devote myself to the design. Patreon gives creators like me the freedom to produce our best work and share it within a community that believes in our endeavours. This campaign acts as a reciprocal beneficiary between us, allowing me to grow as an artist and provide you with work that is the best of my ability. On top of that, you get access to process work, makeup tests, behind-the-scenes video footage, and the chance to follow me on all my cross-country con adventures-  like this one!

Each pledge, no matter the amount, goes towards materials, equipment, travel to conventions, and overhead fees that accompany the content. Every dollar is appreciated! Considering that an average handmade costume costs me $250 - $300 to produce in materials alone, cosplay is not a cheap labor of love. By supporting me, you’re contributing to my odyssey and granting me the gift of creating content for an audience that is appreciative of my efforts. I want to return the love that this community has shown me by channeling my creative outlet into a celebration of our mutual interests.



Though I’m grateful for every amount, please ensure that your needs and responsibilities come first! For those who choose to participate, I thank you whole-heartedly for contributing to my creativity. Regardless of the size, your acts of kindness and encouragement don’t go unnoticed. Rewards will go out at the end of the month only if payment goes through. Lastly, any sort of harassment or inappropriate misconduct is not tolerated and your rewards will be voided if done so. 

Thanks for everything,

Emperiam
