The Crooked Feather is creating Tutorials and Vlogs for Costume Props and Accessories

patrons

Here at The Crooked Feather I am constantly trying to push the limits of costume design and functionality.  With your help I can work on more varied and interesting projects and pass on what I learn to you!  Not only that but you can help decide what insane costume piece I figure out next!  With your support I am hoping to get some breathing room from commissions and instead focus on tutorials and prototyping.  Help me help you learn to make some really cool stuff!
Tiers
Thrifty Maker
$2 or more per month
This tier is probably the most bang for your buck. For just two measly dollars (or more... I wont stop you...) per month I am giving you access to our interactive Patreon feed which will include things like:

  • Early access to new videos: I will upload new videos right here for my wonderful Patrons to see before anyone else!
  • Access to Prototyping Vlog: Unlike my regular tutorials, you will get to join me as I make mistakes and try new and possibly dangerous things in the name of high tech costuming! While I cant promise explosions... I cant promise there wont be any either...
  • GIVEAWAYS!: One entry into exclusive Patron Only givaways! This could mean free feather trinkets, prints, coupons and even full sets of wings!
  • Adblock forgiveness: Supporting me on Patreon eliminates that guilt that you definitely feel when you block my monetized adds on Youtube and allows me to make more tutorials more consistently.
  • Insider news: I have a lot of projects in the works. Some are small, some are big! From brand new moving wings to fiber optic dresses and micro controlled headgear, I will keep you updated on all the exciting new projects I am working on! 
  • Community: The Patreon feed is interactive, meaning it's not just a place where I put stuff and you just passively see it. It's a place where you can comment on things and ask me questions and get actively involved even further with me and my projects!  Vote on Vlog topics and my next prototyping project!
Social Hour
$5 or more per month
Join the maker movement by donating just $5 and you can talk with me personally about your costuming questions and troubles!

  • All Previous Rewards: This reward entitles you to my Patron Only feed and all the goodies it provides. More details above.
  • Monthly Google Hangout:  Making costumes and props can be an infuriating, but rewarding process. At this tier you can join me once a month for a few hours to talk about the fun and frustrations of being a maker. I am happy to answer questions and help you come up with new ways to make great costumes!  Or we can just talk about how delicious cupcakes are... whatever... :P
  •  Bonus Giveaway entry: TWO entries into exclusive Patron Only giveaways! This could mean free feather trinkets, prints, coupons and even full sets of wings! 
Tutoral Tinkerer
$10 or more per month
Want more? More action? More Excitement?? MORE MAKING MADNESS!?!?!
At this tier you get:


  • All Previous Rewards: This reward entitles you to my Patron Only feed and all the goodies it provides as well as all the goodies at the $5 tier. More details above.
  • Private Tutorial and Post Archive:  Patreon is not terribly friendly when it comes to finding old posts.  At this tier you can find all of the parts lists, videos, and Blog/Vlog posts from Patreon in an easy to find format.  No more scrolling for a year to find that one post where I talked about that Stuff you need for your project or how to do that one Thing. Here you can find everything quickly and easily and save your poor middle finger from that evil scroll wheel.
  • Exclusive Text and Image Tutorials: Also on this private page will be text tutorials and images to help you through step by step in making your props! While I understand the video tutorials are great for seeing first hand how something is done what takes 3 days to complete can take just 10 min on a video.  Rather than pressing pause for hours at a time you can print off these pages and follow along at your own pace and watch the videos as a supplement to make sure everything you are doing looks correct!
  • Mega Bonus Giveaway entry: THREE entries into exclusive Patron Only giveaways! This could mean free feather trinkets, prints, coupons and even full sets of wings!  


Collector
$20 or more per month
You want it all!  The hangouts, the tutorials, the Vlog! But thats not enough. You just cant get enough of these costumes, these props, THESE MAKER MASTERPIECES!!! Ok Im stretching pretty far... However, if Cosplay prints are your fancy at this tier:

  • All Previous Rewards: This reward entitles you to my Patron Only feed and all the goodies it provides as well as all the goodies at the $5 and $10 tier. More details above.
  • Free Signed PATRON ONLY Print: And YOU get to vote on the costume and pose!  You can vote from my current costume/prop list and a pose to go with!  Be as vague or detailed in your requests as you want and I will do my best to oblige.  The top asked for combo will be included in my next photo session and anyone at this tier will get a free 8x11 print sent to their house/apartment/floating castle. Currently schedualed to come out every 2 months.


VIP
$50 or more per month
Oh Man.  You just cant get enough, can you?  Well thats ok, because there is plenty of Maker love to go around!  If you are a budding cosplayer or maker this is a great tier for you!  Here you get:

  • All Previous Rewards: This reward entitles you to my Patron Only feed and all the goodies it provides as well as all the goodies at the $5, $10 and $20 tier. More details above.
  • One-on-One Advice/Critique: Get a 30 minute Skype or Whatsapp chat with me every month!  That google hangout can get crowded, so if you want advice or help regularly with your projects this is a great way to ask me questions one-on-one!  I may not have all the answers, but I'm crafty and we can always figure anything out together if we put our minds to it! 
  • Best Friend :P
    $4,000 or more per month
    You are officially my favorite :3 If anyone actually pays for this one you get:
    • All Previous Rewards: This reward entitles you to my Patron Only feed and all the goodies it provides as well as all the goodies at the $5, $10 and $20, and $50 tier. More details above.
    • Exclusive Hangout Day: Hang out with me for a day at a convention of your choice (subject to scheduling restrictions)! Wear a set of wings and strut around with me in style! You can also join me for a day at any convention I am already going to. For my current Con schedule please visit my website thecrookedfeather.com. 
    • Full custom sets of wings: How often you can get a set depends mostly on what set of wings you want.  We can go absolutely bananas with fiber optics and LED lighting and MADNESS every other month or so, full on custom electronics and such may take a bit longer just to account for design and engineering and parts, or if you want just little guys or easy replicas we can do a set per month of active patronage.

    While I plan on recording my shinaniganz anyway, this cap will let me prototype something new and untried every month! At the moment I am slave to my customers schedules. FREEEEE MEEEEE from my monetary chains and I can try new and different things on a regular basis. Want me to make feathers that look like they are singed and smoldering?  Want me to make a dress that glows and lights up? How about a moving Medusa wig? As a patron you get to cast your vote for my next prototype Vlog project, AND you get one every month! While more complicated projects may take more than a month, any that do are sure to be worth the double feature ;)
