Long post incoming! Please read!!
Let's start with where we're at for February!
Feb's Lewd Shoot - Spider-Gwen and company. The rest of the set should drop next week. The photographer is editing those instead of me since I am working on my two other cosplays NONSTOP!
Feb's BIG BUILD - Ashe - Cosplay is currently at 74% done and photo shoot is tentatively set on 2/24.
Feb's MEDIUM BUILD - Morrigan Aensland - Cosplay is at 65% done and photo shoot is tentatively set on 2/28
That means the full sets will drop in between 2/24 and 3/3 and rewards will be mailed out by the 10th.
I will be doing the Ralph Breaks the Internet version of Snow White this weekend with a GIANT ASS group of ladies (2/23), it will not be available for physical February rewards but will be part of February's digital rewards.
March's Lewd Shoot - Lewd Ashe - photo shoot set for 3/7
March's BIG BUILD - Ursula - cosplay at 25%, photo shoot TBD
March's MEDIUM BUILD - Alolan Vulpix or "Icy" - cosplay at 15%, photo shoot with KCLane Cosplay on 3/17
I was inspired by OhMySophii's 48 hour challenge and MIGHT TRY IT in March with a genderbent Bakugou from My Hero Academia. I already have some pieces for this costume, so I'll really just be making the armor and weapons. If I have everything else on track, then I'll be able to do it!
March brings two conventions for me:
Nakakon - 3/15-3/17 - I'll be appearing for a brief time on Sunday. I may be able to make Saturday, but no guarantees!
Planet Comicon - 3/29-3/31 - I'll be appearing all 3 days as a Cosplay Guest.
MARCH PATREON CHANGES!
Starting in March, I'll be changing up the tiers a bit. This is after some research, some soul searching, and some polls from you all. I'll be releasing these shortly to the public, but here are the new official images/tier explanations:
For the Bard/$1 tier-
You still get full access to everything on the feed, which includes selfies through the Lens feature on Patreon, WIP posts, and participation in polls. I'm ADDING shoutouts on Twitter for all $1 patrons when you sign up, on your Patreon anniversary, and your birthday!
You'll receive the same stuff the Bards do, plus a monthly digital download of all the selfies I took that month! I'm adding access to my Snapchat. You'll have snaps sent directly to you, as opposed to following my stories. I will be doing snaps every time I'm in costume that month as well as videos of me singing in costume (1-2 a month).
For this tier, you'll get everything from the Rogues tier and the usual 5x7 physical print of this month's BIG BUILD cosplay. I'll also be adding in a 4x6 of the LEWD shoot this month. Your digital rewards will be the official prints from all 2-3 shoots that month and permission to print them yourself.
This tier is keeping the physical rewards, gaining the addition of the monthly 4x6, and will receive digital downloads of entire photo sets!
I am getting rid of the Wizards tier after review!
Warriors will now receive double physical prints (2 8x12s, 2 5x7s, 2 4x6s) every month. And they will be getting 3 polaroids every month specific to them!
My plan is to have everything built and shot by the end of the month. Lewd shoots will be done at the beginning of the month with sets dropped the first or second week. Editing takes me A LONG TIME, so sets will often be released in multiple parts right as I finish them (that's why some drop after midnight or right at 8:00 am). All sets will be dropped by the first weekend of the following month. I'll put up polls for the next month's lewd shoot when they apply (sometimes, I'll be teaming up for more group boudoir and we'll just go off of what we all want to do as a group). In the summer, the lewd shoots may also turn into pool shoots instead. Digital and physical rewards will be mailed out FROM NOW ON before the 15th of the following month!
Here's what I'm working on personally:
I get in my head sometimes, I suffer from depression, I get lazy and distraught. I'm working on it. I'm going to keep you all more updated on these things. Sometimes, I bite off way more than I can accomplish, and I'm going to be honest about that too. I know that with a full time job in the medical field and a full time cosplay job, I can only get so much accomplished and sometimes, I have to push cosplay to the side in order to prioritize my family and health. I can't guarantee every costume will get finished or every month will have the same rewards/expectations. What I can guarantee is my effort to be as upfront as possible with you all. All I can ask is your continued support and patience. I promise that I've got some cool things that I'm doing!
