Since I have Naruto to thank for me cosplaying, welcome to my village~

If you're reading this, you probably at least know my name is Riley and/or Riley Sinpai. If you stumbled upon this randomly, thank you for reading at all!!

What's a Riley?!

As I said, my name is Riley, and I've been cosplaying since around 2008 as a young weeaboo child. I cosplayed off and on with my friends, typically going to around one convention a year, making one to two cosplays a year. A year or so ago, I re-found solace from day to day struggles and life in cosplay again and started cosplaying even more than I'd used to!

Cosplay allows me to express myself creatively and celebrate my favorite characters at the same time. Without some type of creative outlet, I usually find myself a lost artist.

While every now and then I get discouraged because of my capabilities, space, or whatever failure may arise from crafting and making things - I continue to want to be better and learn however means may allow. SO THANK YOU FOR TAKING INTEREST IN MY WORK, and even THINKING about supporting me.

Now, what the hell is a Patreon?

Patreon is a platform that allows artists to give back to the supporters of what they create and produce! People can become "Patrons" to the "Creators" here via becoming a supporter. When people become Patrons, they get whatever rewards the Creator chose for that level of support!! Patreon is a neato symbiotic relationship, and a great idea.

You can also choose not to pledge anything at all and just "follow" people so to speak. You'll get to see updates and such that way!

Rewards / Mini Goals - more detail on the side/below

As you move up in Ninja rank, your sinpai will teach you new ninjutsus.
I've retired physical rewards until I move due to past complications with shipping/returned packages, or reach 50 supporters, whichever comes first! 50 ninja would mean I can reasonably provide them to everyone, whether it means going to a different post office if necessary etc.

Because of this, I've drastically increased how much digital content and creations I'm going to provide! FULL photosets can be HUUUUGE when shooting conditions are right, and even at a minimum a full shoot will have at least 15 photos. Considering how many shoots I do a month, it's quite a bit of time and love. If I do a quick minishoot for something I'm unsure of cosplaying, you'll also see it. :)

Rewards will be sent individually within Patreon at the beginning of the next month, and if it seems like photo editing will take longer I'll let everyone know.

Note: I'm not going to stop making/posting stuff on other platforms, this is extras/early access for those that do choose to support my crazy cosplay dreams. For example, I'm not going to post 20 pictures of the same cosplay in a row on social media no matter how IN LOVE with them I am.
