Welcome to My Patreon!


Hi Guys! I’m Kira Elric but feel free to call me Kira. I’ve been making costumes since 2002, and active in the cosplay community since 2005. I’m a professional seamstress, costume commissioner, and wig stylist. I’ve made things from dresses to trench coats; vests to cowls. I hand pattern all of my work, and even do custom color dyes. I will be providing everything from early access to my latest works and my work in progress posts to behind-the-scenes content and live chats. 

I also intend to bring you guys tutorials, polls to pick future projects and the opportunity for customized personal items, plus some of you might even get to pick my cosplay!


Why Patreon?


Cosplay changed my life. I don't really know how else to put it. It made me into the woman I am today and it is one of the truest expressions of who I am as a person. So I want to give back. I want to be able to give people the confidence to make their own costumes and/ or just get involved with the community. I want to be able to inspire someone else in the way cosplayers inspired me when I first discovered it. 

So that's where you all come in. With your support I'll be able to create better, more frequent content. I'll be able to buy better equipment so not only will my own projects improve but what I'm able to offer to my commission clients will as well. 



Cosplay has helped me grow as a person. I've learned so many tricks and tips; practical skills that I now use in everyday life. It's so much more than a hobby to me. It's my passion. Cosplay is the reason I was able to work in the professional sewing industry and nothing beats the feeling of a finished costume and marveling at all your own hard work once you see it all come together.  

So I want to be able to give that kind of experience to those around me. I want anyone who wants to join this community to feel like they can and that they don't have to be afraid of trying to make their own things because of lacking skills. Let me share my skills with you so you can learn to cultivate your own. 


So Let's talk about Tier Rewards!

This is where I'll be doing a more detailed breakdown of what the tier rewards are and how they'll work!

 For only a dollar you'll get access to all my posts of work before anyone else! All my work in progress and new photoshoots will be posted here on Patreon before I post them on my social media, so you'll be able to see them first! 

I'll always love all of you forever. I know $1 isn't a lot of money but it's the idea that you're willing to support me and my work that means the most to me. I just want you all to know that I'm grateful for all of you following me, and choosing to support me!

Have I ever told you guys I'm a dork? Want to see more behind the process of my work? Love bloopers? Then this tier is for you! With just $5 you'll gain access to all of the silly things that happen in the process of making my costumes and filming videos.  Not to mention the silly things that happen at conventions.  

You'll also get a pack of buttons hand punched by me mailed to you! Show your support with pride! Sport them on your backpack, your purse, your jacket - where ever! The best part? My buttons are water proof! Don't worry about the picture getting damaged, they've been accidentally put in the washing machine and they came out just fine. 

You'll also  gain access to a private Facebook group where I will hold monthly scheduled live streams and have a gallery of all the Fan Signs I'll be making for you guys! 

    1 supporter button for your tier, 1 cosplay button, 2 buttons from Aqua Moon Studios
    *All buttons in each pack are random excluding Support Buttons 


In the $10 tier starts Discord rewards! I have a private "Fans Only" Server and you can be a part of it! Snag the "Golden Sage" role and all the perks what come with it!

I'll also follow you on all my social media so I can keep up with your work and check in every now and then and make sure your projects are going well, because in this tier you'll gain access to tutorials!

I'm going to be starting up Sewing 101 and explaining everything from the parts of a sewing machine and how to choose the right one for you to what's the difference between this fabric and the other one and why fabric choices are important. I will be covering basic sewing techniques as well as more advances ones since I know everyone is at a different level. I will be trying for three tutorials a month and that's where you guys come in!

In this tier, you'll gain access to polls - which means everything from an audience's choice tutorial on anything from sewing to wig style or even what my next cosplay could be!

There will also be HD versions of all my cosplay images that will be digitally signed and e-mailed to you upon request!
*Limit 2 per every 2 months of pledging.


If you find yourself needing even more of me in your day-to-day life, then you can get all kinds of stuff with just $20!  Not only will you be able to snag the "Platinum Knight" role for my Discord server but you'll be able to snag a bonus pack of buttons and signed prints!  You'll get a sneak peek of the process of the ebook that I'm writing, and a preview of my entire library of self made patterns! 

That's a lot of stuff! 

But wait there's more! I'll do some graphic design work** for you, be it making you a banner for your page or designing your business I'll do this for you once per years after just two months of pledging. Don't need graphic design work? That's cool, let me put my artistic side to work for you! I'll draw you a fully colored bust shot** of one of your favorite characters instead. 

Do you ever just look at a costume and don't to know where to start? Let me pattern out the hard part for you! I'll send you one custom pattern** to your measurements or a prop tutorial** made just for you once per year! 

** All items labeled 'once per year' require two months of pledging before the contributor is able to redeem. 


Let's talk! Grab your Discord role "Emerald Mage" and come talk to me in the Discord server any time I'm on with our chat channels!  On top of that, you'll be able to cash in a monthly 1-on-1 help session so I can help you get through any problems you might be having with your current project or one you have in mind. 
I'll even guarantee you a wig commission slot for any wig you need assistance with!***

Also just to let you all know how much I care and appreciate your support I'll send you a hand written letter from me to you. It means the world to me, but let me write it out for you. I might even include surprises! 

*** Wig Commissions are a promised slot. Should my commissions fill before the Patron is able to redeem, they would still be able to book a commission with promised slot. They still must pay for the commission work. 

I see no reason that I should need a tier higher than this! In this tier, you can find yourself some seriously awesome rewards for your support! 

For $100 you can pick out a character for me to cosplay! I just ask that you pick someone I know, and that you don't pick anything lewd. Want me to cosplay Dva from Overwatch - no problem! Want me to cosplay Asuna from Sword Art Online? I can do that too! I just have to know who the character is, I don't have to know the game or like the show!  We can discuss it and you'll get the very first access to the W.I.P. and finished pictures of that costume! I'll even have a 30-minute live chat with you in that costume if you want! *****

Doesn't catch your interest? That's cool. You can get a guaranteed costume commission slot instead! Have no fear of my slots filling up before you have a chance to talk to me! I'll make time for you! ****

Not only that you'll get the "Sapphire Paladin" role for the private Discord group where you not only get access to voice chat, but you can change your own nickname in the group so I know exactly what you want me to call you! <3  

On top of all that, you'll still get the previous rewards and five tickets for the monthly raffle of goodies! Remember there's going to be hand made one-of-a-kind items in there!

**** Commissions are a promised slot. Should my commissions fill before the Patron is able to redeem, they would still be able to book a commission with promised slot. They still must pay for the commission work.

***** The Patron must choose between picking a costume for me to make for myself, and save a commission slot for later use. They can do this once per year after pledging for 4 months. 

******Raffle Tickets from each tier do not roll over to the coming month.

Goals
$16 of $150 per month
My first goal here on Patreon is to buy a new dress form.
 
I currently have a small and plus-size one because my wonderful mother gave me hers.

I want to be able to buy a Medium adjustable sized dress form so I can expand my commissions and make all around better costumes.

A Medium size dress form would also help me with my own work, as neither of the dress forms I own, work for my measurements.
