Hello there! I'm a physics graduate student and generally overexcitable geek. And as much as I love teaching and learning about physics, cosplay allows me step out of my mild-mannered graduate life and become something more.

Magical girls, superheroes, scientists (okay, I don't fall that far away from my graduate student alter ego)... they all allow me to explore different aspects of who I am, and the person I hope to become!

The only thing I love more than dressing as a character I love is sharing my process -- research, building, makeup, posing, and photography -- to help others learn to do it themselves. I release tutorials, timelapses, patterns, and tips to help others start (and continue) on their own creative journeys.



A photo is worth a thousand words, and nowhere is that more apparent than cosplay. So much work that you don't see goes into each stitch, each ruffle, each brushstroke.



This Patreon is for people who want to know the stories behind the cosplay. Here, I'm documenting the story behind whole process: the research, the design, the casualties (my poor, hot-glue-burned fingers), the unexpected successes, all the way down to the final picture edits. By being a patron, you get to see the 1,000 words behind each photo!

Plus, every dollar that goes into this Patreon goes straight back into cosplay. Wigs, fabric, foam, photoshoots, sewing machine maintenance... all so I can produce more content directly to YOUR computer & phone screens (and in person if we're ever at a mutual convention)! Living expenses, convention attendance, and travel will all still come out of my own pocket -- Patreon just helps me afford materials and tools I might not be able to otherwise!


I hope you'll consider pledging! I'm made some things to bribe- I mean, to encourage you. Read on to find out more!

Patreon Feed ($1+)
Functions like a Facebook feed, but DELUXE! Stay up-to-date on everything crafty, see what it's like behind the camera, and access all new photoshoots, tutorials, and more before they're released publicly! 

Private Livestream ($1+)
Kick back and take a night off with me as I delve into what's currently going on in my cosplay world! I'll go into detail about current goings-on as well as plans for the future, plus we can just... chat about stuff.

Movie Nights ($5+)
As anyone who knows me can attest, it's very entertaining trying to watch me sit through any movie that didn't bother to fact-check their science. Monthly movie nights for $5+ Patrons will feature me ranting at the TV as we all watch The Core, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, and other equally infuriating movies. Don't forget the popcorn!

Patron-Only Blog ($5+)
Patrons at the $5+ level get exclusive membership to my Patron-only blog, which follows my creative journey through each cosplay! See every bit of my cosplays come together, from the smallest accessories to the biggest props! You'll also get to see detail photos, behind the scenes videos, and more!

Patterns & Digital Downloads ($5+)
I offer high-quality photo downloads for $5+ patrons! Each project gets you several different HD photos that can be used as desktop backgrounds, mobile backgrounds, or to make your own prints!

I make a lot of patterns for specific characters, and I want to share them with the world! As a $10 patron, you'll get 2-3 digital patterns for each costume, including Patreon-exclusive details.

Costume Gallery Page ($10+)
For each project I complete, $10 Patrons will get an extra webpage, which serves as a landing page for everything about each completed costume: the main gallery, convenient navigation to all blog posts, download links for all digital rewards, and fun extras like GIFs, selfies, and silly test shots. PLUS, this page will still be available if you un-pledge! If you supported the costume through Patreon, you'll be able to access the content you paid for no matter what!*

*if you delete your pledge, you will no longer be able to access the Patreon blog, but all other content will be available.

Physical Rewards ($20+)
Cosplay and cosplay photography is just another form of fan art to hang on your wall! If you pledge at the $20 level, you'll get a Patreon-exclusive 8.5x11 and 4x6 print from each project you support to frame and gaze upon in your darkest moments.

Cosplay Keepsakes ($50; limited!)
Want something more personal than a print? At the $50 level, I'll actually make you something from the remaining materials of my costume! Bookmarks, armbands, paperweights, light switches, and other accessories made from the same fabric and materials I used foThere's a limit

Goals
$131 of $250 per new costume
When we reach $250/month, I want to dedicate one day each month to a 12-hour crafting stream for the general public. I've done these before on Twitch; they're always a lot of fun, AND we get a lot done! Up until now, they've been limited to con crunch week; going forward, I want to make them more consistent!
