Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for January 2020

So far, approximately $182.48 has been raised out of our target of $280.00. We're about 65% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 January!

Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

JANUARY PLANS! FEBRUARY PLANS! PLANS AHOY! 2020-01-15T03:18:34+00:00

Hey there, hi there, ho there. As you guys know, Patreon is on hold this month! New people yes, you have to still pay money because you're still getting access to old rewards. We're starting back up February 1st!

There's been a very specific reasons I've been holding off on making this post, so while I'd like to start with January goals instead we're going to start off with...

....February Plans!

Been holding out on you all so I could actually share what I'm planning on doing. I wanted to do something (kinda?) Valentines Day themed this Feb so I am happy to give some first looks at a little character I've been making up Ai-Senpai (get it Ai MEANS LOVE...hahahaha)

She's an Office Worker who's really smart but pretty clumsy! I'm excited to do some fun stuff with this. There's going to be a wig with this that's pink and I'm going to style it like Haru from Persona 5 (but with bangs) and IT WILL BE A MEGANE SHOOT WITH ACTUAL PIGGYNUKKA MEGANE. I'm supposed to wear glasses but I don't...so I'll be wearing my prescription glasses with this.


Shoot is going to be happening during the weekend of the 25th! I'm not sure yet if we're going to do a set in my house (I purchased a backdrop holder so we can actually hide my freaking house!) or if I'm going to manage to book a photo studio with another cosplayer. I'll let you guys know when I find out.

Please feel free to let me know any ideas you guys have to go with this character like poses or little fun things to do and if I like it I'll incorporate it.


But onto the current state of things January Plans

I had a lot of people really upset that I put things on pause for this month but I promise it's going to be worth it for everyone. Here's a list of things I'm planning on accomplishing this month...


  • First off everything getting caught up. The only thing outstanding at this moment is physical prints for the few people who get them. I'll be ordering them tonight and getting them tomorrow now that I have computer access again.


  • Getting ahead is another major thing which is why January was paused. We're shooting the February shoot the month before instead of during the month as you can see above. What I'm hoping for going forward is that I can advertise shoots at the beginning of the month and then release things at the beginning to the mid of the month each month. It helps you guys get rewards earlier and decide if you want to pledge a month and helps me get more people on here in the long run since it's not just me haphazardly posting that somethings out right at the end of the month.


  • Continuing keeping my posts cleaned and only having a years worth of content up. We were already doing this but I haven't been keeping up on removing unrelated posts and removing old shoots. Doing this helps new and old Patrons navigate my site better, gives people more incentives to join if things are disappearing, and makes it so I don't die from keeping track of many gigabytes worth of content. If you don't like that you can't navigate everything at once, I previously implemented that every month you get an old shoot for free out of my Gumroad. This will give you a download link I don't think expires that you can keep in your email. I will be pushing this more going forward. If you've been here for awhile, just let me know and I'll just give you links for stuff you pledged for previously.


  • Rehashing my front page, small rewrites to some rewards, and a logo refresh. I'll be rewriting my front page a little bit because I would like to focus my posts on here more to "Paid Content" instead of free posts because this takes a lot of my time! Also going forward physical rewards will be mailed out the following month instead of the month of and rewards will be re-written to honor that. This gives me enough time to proof physical rewards and order materials for printing and mailing if I'm out instead of wasting my money and time trying to rush ship things to get out the month of. Also logo isn't changing much and may be moved to update in February but I think it just needs a little refresh to keep things new!


  • Planning shoots to give me rotating "Fashion" (I consider that things like what I'm shooting for next month to fall into that) and "Cosplay" every other month to give me time to actually work on cosplay and show you guys polished projects I'm proud of.


  • Preparing fair and legal plans, contracts and price guides to open the opportunity to work and sell content with other cosplayers in the future.


  • Hopefully editing one shoot that's been pushed aside for monthly content on here. I think I will be focusing on my duo set with RLRunescapeGF in our elves which will be available for a fee on our Gumroads. This will also give a good practice with a close friend on how to run collaborations in the future.



And since I don't want to overwhelm myself and make promises I can't keep that's what's going on. I think going into 2020 Patreon will be better and I can take the critiques those of you gave me during my end of the year poll to continue pushing my content forward in a way that makes everyone happy.

Feel free to contact me on any platform, PM, or via email at piggynukkacosplay@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns about anything!

I've been talking with a few other cosplayers with Patreons and a lot of us dislike how we have to rush things we see as "shitty" in time to do rewards. I know out of everything I enjoy making a cosplay and I hate having to do half assed jobs on stuff to pump out a shoot. What my ultimate goal is once I am financially stable in my professional work I want to change my Patreon to "Pay by project" instead of each month and only do shoots every 2 months so I can spend more time and effort into producing 6 dope ass shoots a year instead of 12 of me lightly dipping my toes into what I want to accomplish.

User #176195 - 15 Jan 20 04:13
This seems like a good step in that direction. The backdrop thing you've bought should help facilitate the transition since you can do higher quality stuff at home. ...oh and I really hope you find a way to make the light flash off your glasses for that sinister shine in at least one picture.
Taiyoucon over and back in LA! 2020-01-08T07:35:25+00:00

Boy oh boy guys, yesterday was my first full 24 hours of being home in the last month and a half and my body decided that sleeping 15 hours was what I needed. I still haven't been able to fully unpack, but it's good to be back in LA!


Taiyoucon was fun and I'm really thankful that I was brought on as a guest, not matter how tired I was. Both panels I ran (All About Wigs and How to Use Your Art Degree) were quaint but seemed to be enjoyed by those attending!

I only ended up cosplaying one day as Kirby and I only wore it for a few hours but I managed to do a shoot with a local photographer friend while I was there (I'll share when I get pictures!) The rest of the convention was spent supporting a few friends panels and straight up CHILLED because I freaking needed it.

If you didn't see on social media I will no longer be attending ALA because I am completely wiped! I need to do a few cosplay things for Chet like doing a few adjustments to his Chairman Rose Cosplay but starting Friday I'll have all the time in the world to myself and be able to post some things I'd like to achieve with my month pause from Patreon, finally unpack and get prints and polaroids printed, and let you guys know what February plans are.

But for now here's the selfies and stuff I took at Taiyoucon and posted on social media in case you missed them.

Announcement: Pausing for January 2019-12-19T19:53:50+00:00

TL;DR On the Bottom

Hey everyone,

I wanted to let you all know that even tho it was a minority, there were vocal people in the survey about how I’m struggling to get things out in a timely manner for my rewards! Because of that I have decided to pause my Patreon for the month of January.


What does that mean: You will not be charged for rewards for January! Think of it like pushing the pause button on a video. You do not need to delete your pledge and right before February I will be clicking the unpause button and you will be once February collections come around. You can read Patreon‘s support page about this here.


Why: Even though the complaints are a minority, and I won‘t be specifically doing what the complaints said, I do think I should re-evaluate how Patreon is going and try very hard to get ahead so when there’s a hitch in my life it doesn’t screw the rest of the line so to speak.

With me guesting and doing panels at two back to back conventions the first two weeks of January it’s becoming more apparent this will be a struggle.

Chet and I are going to be working together to see how we can streamline out shoots, editing, and I will be discussing with a few people about how to handle collaborations between cosplayers and photographers since we need to have plans and agreements that are fair for all parties and have legal documents available!


When will this go into effect: I will be placing the pause on my Patreon sometime next week. You will get an email in your inbox once that happens.


Will we still get rewards this month?: Of course! I’ll be doing secondary edits on the 80’s Workout Shoot this weekend to release sometime on Monday, and prints and GIF’s will be shot the day I get back to LA (Dec 30th) and released either that night or the following day.


So you won’t be posting all in January?: I actually still intend on posting regularly with convention updates and with the side shoots I’ve been doing in Portland as I get them. This is just giving me a break from doing proper rewards (Full sets, GIFs and prints) to get a step ahead.

If at any point you feel like during the month I’ve done work that is worth your pledge, feel free to throw me some Ko-Fi’s. If not though, no worries!


Will I lose my Founder Pricing ($3 Tier)?: As long as you don’t delete your pledge you will not lose founding pricing.


And that’s about it. So a summary for those who didn’t wanna read all above


TL;DR

*You will not be charged for your next Patreon payment!

*You will be charged again for Patreon starting in February and sets will resume!

*All 80’s/December Rewards are still coming out this month.

*I will still be doing posts during next month, just not doing a full release (Which is why you aren’t being charged)

*You will still keep your Founder Pricing as long as you don’t delete your pledge


And that’s about it! Feel free to send a DM or an email to piggynukkacosplay@gmail.com If you have any questions or even just leave a comment below! And don’t worry, I’m not going quiet. I have my LOLITA DEBUT to share with you all this weekend on top of the other things you’re expecting ;D

Freddy Kruger Shoot 2 Preview 2019-12-16T04:21:58+00:00close

Shoot today was very fun! But very cold!

Shane showed me some previews and I’m loving what he got. I think I’m going to be very satisfied with everything and not want to shoot her again until I can find a Jason or other Kotobukiya Horror girls to shoot with.

Also my sister got me all of the 80’s workout photos today for the December set! I’ll be curating them and doing secondary edits during this week. I’ve got a lot of final week plans after work so I will probably be able to get things up but next Sunday or Monday~

A Little Update~ 2019-12-13T08:32:21+00:00

Hey guys!


I’ve been a little quiet this month and I wanted to apologize for that! Coming back to Oregon has been great but it’s opening my eyes in a lot of different ways about my career (For all of you new folks I do Visual Effects for Movies and TV professionally, cosplay isn’t my career) and how I handle my job.


Stuff at my studio in Portland has been wonderful and inspiring but at the same time it’s making me think deeply about how I’ve been mistreated a lot in Los Angeles studios. They’re keeping me really busy during my contract (Which ends next Friday!) and there’s been a lot more of my trip here spent mulling over some pretty deep thinking about my mental health and what I should do with my career going forward or trying to take my mind off it by spending it with friends.


I just wanted to give you guys a little update cuz it’s been a lot having my mind filled with that on top of being away from home.


I can say though that I’m doing ANOTHER Freddy shoot this weekend with Shane Phillips (On Sunday!) and my little sister said that she would be getting me the 80’s workout pictures this weekend.


I’m officially not working a full time job for 3 weeks at a minimum starting Xmas week so I’ll be actually able to devote some time to getting things together here~


Thanks for the support always y’all. I really appreciate it.

-Nikki

December Updates! 2019-12-03T21:05:25+00:00

Hey y’all! Happy Holidays and I hope you had a lovely thanksgiving.


Real Life

As most of you guys know, I drove 16 hours up to Portland, OR to work at my old studio I worked on Grimm at for a month long holiday contract! Things have been wild because I’m trying to live out of suitcases in a living room and need to clean up every day, trying to see friends, and working 40-50 hours a week. So my apologies for being really light on updates and behind on everything right now. I greatly underestimated how much this would be heavy on my schedule and how much it would be. I promise I’m trying really hard to get shit together!



Outstanding Rewards

I’m a bit late on rewards and I’m sorry about that! I don’t have a lot of selfies right now because I’ve not been looking my best and not taking a lot so I’m going to try to focus on getting some pics for y’all each day (plus I have some shoots coming!) so I’m going to try to have the the $1 selfies out on December 15th if not sooner.

Those of you who get physical prints should have everything mailed out to you! I know there’s a bunch of people who have provided me with their addresses but never message me to let me know what prints they want so I’ll be sending out a message later tonight so we can get preferences sorted out.

However, Elf Prints are a little behind because my power supply in my tower took a shit and died. I tried to edit things on my iPad but it was exporting at very lo-res and after asking the print tier what they wanted it was majority that people would rather wait for higher res images. I’m going to grab a power supply tonight and put it in my computer and I should be able to edit things tomorrow night! If you are anyone in the print tier that is upset that I’m doing high res late instead of lo-res on time please shoot me a message so I we can discuss how I can make that up to you!

Also Polaroids! I haven’t forgotten about you guys. As you guys know I ended up reshooting all my elf shit and my last Instax pack of film was full of dud film ): I just got a new 5 pack from Amazon that should be getting here tonight so my plan is to print and get everything in the mail tomorrow! Since I am behind I’m not going to be sending out proofs of polaroids since I am so behind so if you don’t like your polaroid just keep the one I send and let me know so I can retake it for you.


December Shoot

This month’s shoot is going to be the Work Out/80’s Outfit I did with my sister back at the start of fall! I asked her and she said she’s getting through editing photos but they are on the way. If anything changes I will let you guys know right away.

Also GIFs, Prints, and Polaroids for that will all be shot very close to the end of the year since I didn’t bring that outfit with me. I intend on getting back to LA on Dec 28th so I can shoot everything with Chet on the 29th or 30th and get it out.


Other Things

* As I said previously I’m doing a few shoots while I’m in Oregon! First one up is I will be doing a new Freddy-Chan shoot with Jason Desomer Photography on Saturday. I’m really hoping there’s going to be a lot of blood involved. This will NOT be a Patreon shoot and is just something fun I’m doing with my friend. I might release some extra photos on the $1 tier if he’s ok with it but that’s all.

* Second shoot I’m doing is with Shane Phillips the following weekend but we haven’t decided on an outfit yet. Again, this is just a fun shoot with a friend so I’ll be mostly posting this publicly with maybe a few extras in the $1 tier. I will however be taking a few extra lo-res things with my phone to spoil you guys with.

*Third shoot this month is going to be with my little sister which WILL be a Patreon shoot. I want to shoot my Lolita Coord I’m putting together with her and release it for January. The main shoot will be encompassing the cuteness and adorable air of the Lolita fashion either mixed with snow or the dying vegetation of Central Oregon. Since I do not feel ok with doing any “flirty” poses in that outfit I will be doing a separate lingere outfit for the print tier to fulfill those rewards.

*I’m getting ready to do panels at Taiyoucon so I am putting those together! I will probably post some sneak peeks of those as I get things done.

*I’m also preparing to shoot my goal shoot with the maid pigs! I’ll have some updates on that later tonight.

*I’m also trying to finish one cosplay commission while I’m in town and am trying to finish my Snorlax cosplay.


And that’s about all I’ve got for now ;; THINGS ARE BUSY.


If you have any questions, comments or concerns, PLEASE REACH OUT! Anyone who has hit me up knows that I respond quickly and wanna try to make you guys happy so don’t hesitate.


-Nikki

Exciting times! I think your intuition is right on for keeping the Lolita shoot away from the flirty tier. It's definitely not meant for that and I'm glad you agree!

200 Patron Goal: Casual Samus 2019-11-13T00:40:55+00:00close

Hey everyone!

I know I mentioned before but I have a little perk to hit before the start of 2020! I know in my selfies this month you probably saw this outfit I got recently.

Chet kept saying that I look like Samus in this and I thought "Oh people like Samus, that's a good idea!"

So I'm issuing a goal, if I can get to 200 Patrons (Any amount) by January 2020 I will do a casual Samus shoot in this and release it to all my Patreon tiers along with whatever set I choose to do for January for $3+ tiers!

If we don't hit it, I won't do it. This works for me since I don't feel super strongly about Samus and this is just something that somehow worked out!

So any of you folks just following, nows a great time to even just pledge a $1! I'll also be trying to get some hype on my social media~

Sweet Baby Jesus, I hope this happens.
Lots of Updates! (Shoots! Guesting! Work!) 2019-11-11T05:04:23+00:00

A lot has happened these last two weeks. LIKE REALLY A LOT OF STUFF. So I want to update all you guys with what’s going on~


UPDATE 01: GUEST FOR TAIYOU CON JAN 2-4 (Mesa, Arizona)

My second guest appearance at a convention will be the start of 2020! I was invited to TaiyouCon in Mesa, Arizona. All I know at the moment is that I’ll be running a panel each day for the convention. As I get more information I’ll update you all as well.


UPDATE 02: PATREON MILESTONE “PIG MAID SHOOT WITH REAL PIGS“ HAPPENING FIRST WEEKEND IN JANUARY

The whole reason I’ve been putting off saying when I was getting that reward done was because I had been in talks with Taiyou Con about guesting and couldn’t say anything until I was announced. My friends who own two pigs in Pheonix, Arizona agreed for me to shoot with them and I will be getting that done while I’m in town for cons. I will need to design and make the pigs maid outfits so I’ll be making updates on that soon.


UPDATE 03: WORKING IN PORTLAND, OREGON FROM NOV 20-DEC 20

I just got the word on Friday that I was hired for a 5 week contract at my old studio in Portland! This might be a bit of a hassle to start but I think this will work out for everyone!

I’ll be starting my drive up to Portland on November 18th (The Tuesday after this coming one) and it will take me a hot minute to get settled into being in my friends for a month. Before I leave I will have all physical rewards I’m behind on shipped and out to their respective tiers so do not fret.

Why is this good news for you guys though? I will probably be doing at minimum 3 shoots while I’m in Oregon with my photographer friends! Shane Phillips (Has shot my Hug Attack Nozomi, Punk Sailor Moon, and PJ Hanekawa), Jason Desomer (Honestly has done so much of my shoots I can’t count...he shot my Colorless Witch shoot last December) and my little sister have shown interest in doing shoots with me so I’m going to try to work some things out! I’ll be putting plans together and going through my cosplays to see what I can bring up!


Hopefully this time I don’t have my car windows smashed and get robbed XD I think it’ll be a good time though!


UPDATE 04: ALL OF JANUARY OFF FROM NORMAL JOBS

The main reason I’m going up to Oregon for 5 weeks is because LA fucking dies because every person up the chain of command goes on holiday for two months and work is slim pickings.

Work is still pretty dead come January so I decided since I’ve got two cons at the beginning of the month back to back I’m just gonna take the whole month off. With now confirmed work until the end of the year I can more than afford it and I’ll be back on the grind come February.

During this time I’ll be putting a lot of work into making Patreon is on a better schedule and running really smooth.


That’s about all the updates I’ve got for you guys though. Tomorrow I’ll be making a post in attempt to get some more folks on Patreon and if we can hit a Patron goal I’ll be doing a special extra shoot for ya’ll in January ;D Get hype for that.

November Update 2019-11-05T07:42:20+00:00

This is overdue by 4 days and my apologies on that...



Real Life

I'm legit dying and I don't know how I'm surviving. Most of my days are spent working from the moment I get up until I go to sleep because I'm technically working three jobs (Full Time Motion Graphics, Side Movie Compositing, and Patreon).

I'm trying REALLY hard to get this movie job done but it keeps becoming a gross under estimation on my part of the work that's involved =_= I'm still really pushing to have it done this week.


So any like, physical rewards that still aren't sent out I'm REALLY REALLY SORRY AND I REALLY PROMISE I WILL GET TO IT AS SOON AS I CAN. I just have been so busy...If there's anything digital I need to send since I know some people are paying more for certain tiers to get digital prints stuff please message me if you need it right away. I'm so frazzled right now.


November Shoot

This months shoot will be my Elf I shot back at the beginning of last month! This will just be a solo set of only me.

The photos of RLRunescape GF and I together will be available as a separate set you can buy from either of us with a discount available to our Patrons. This way we can better split the money from that evenly since it's not really fair to split our Patreon earnings down the middle.

I'm hoping to have this up around the 15th since it's already shot! I will need to take GIFs and Polaroids but that's it!


Besides that...that's all I've got for you this month guys.


Pray for my soul and I'll let you all know when I'm done with the movie job ;_;

October Update and Plans 2019-09-28T05:11:14+00:00

YESSSS IT'S MY FAVORITE MONTH!


FIRST OFF A BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL

Hey guys, for those of you that missed it, yes the second half of September rewards (Mini Nadeshiko set, Prints, GIFs, Polaroids) are late. We are shooting them this weekend (Sunday) and they will be released during next week. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH for understanding my job situation and letting me be late to try out the movie job. Even though it didn't work out, I am going to get paid for my time there and it helped me discover a bit more about myself and even get through a mental health hurdle, so it was not in vain.



Real Life Stuff

With that said, I actually feel pretty ok with life right now! I'm really busy right now, as I'm working Fulltime doing Motion Graphics Freelance for a company and I have a side job doing remote work on a movie that is all due by October 4th, but something just feels nice? I'm not horrendously struggling for the first time in a long time while working and I feel kind of content? It's really nice. I know it's been hard to personal stuff because I'm always worrying about something. But I'm not right now...I hope this feeling stays after stuff dies down after the 4th.




THIS MONTH IS MY BIRTHDAY! I'M 30 YUCK.

I turn 30 on October 12th! Even though I'm not hype about hitting my 30's, I am excited that my birthday is on a Saturday! I'm planning on doing Karaoke and eating yummy things on my special day.

If you guys would like to send me a card or anything I have a PO Box that I check regularly! I love cards and letters!! So if you feel up to it my day will be even more special with kind words from you all~ my PO Box is:

PO Box 641272 Los Angeles, California, 90064

Also because I know I'm going to get asked, yes I have a wishlist on Amazon. You do not have to get me anything, but if you do feel like doing so, I'll make sure to thank you. I used that list as just a general gift list even for my family so there's some spendy stuff on there so please don't get that. I'll add some other stuff later this week.



October Photoshoot Plans

I'm in a situation right now where I have a lot of things shot and a lot of things planned, but I wanna keep with certain month themes, specifically Halloween because it's my absolute favorite holiday!

Since I don't want to overwhelm myself and fall behind even more, I decided to do what was my "low effort" Halloween idea where I will be a spooky scary skeleton!

This outfit should be coming in the mail tomorrow and I really wanna do some dope ass skull makeup on my face with gold accents. I also might get a spooky lil' crown, so I'm like the Skeleton Queen. I've been thinking about something like below.


I also am still shooting my elves stuff with RLRunescapeGF next weekend that I mentioned in this post. I don't know exactly how we're going to be releasing things since I haven't done a proper collab shoot yet, but you'll at least get photos of me frolicking around in a flower hot tub looking all ethereal and shit. I want to release this in November, only because I want to keep October Halloween Themed.


There's also another possibly collab coming near the end of the month with another model I very much look up to who will be visiting and staying with me for a bit. I don't want to spill the beans yet because I need to 200% confirm with her, but you all will be VERY HAPPY if this goes through. We talked about doing Mushroom Girls.


My little sister also said she will get my 80's photoshoot edited and to me sometime in November. So I might release this in December? Or do something Christmas-y and release in January? Let me know what you guys want.



Other Stuff


  • I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN ABOUT SNORLAX, ITS THE ONLY COSTUME I'M CURRENTLY WORKING ON RIGHT NOW. Jobs just....got overwhelming ;; I hope to continue to work on it this month which is why I went with a low effort costume instead of making something special for Halloween.
  • I finished Cartoon Cipher's Animated Avatar last weekend! I'll make a post revealing what I did after they incorporate it into their channel since I don't want to take away that fire from them.
  • Still need to make a walkthrough post of Nadeshiko, I wanna do that this month.
  • I do still wanna see about doing a livestream again. Things just got so crazy so quick. Things will be calming down after the 4th!
  • I'll also make sure to do a little birthday post like I did last year! I thought that was cute and fun!

I applaud you, you always have so much on your plate but you always knock it out. you get the patreon stuff done(and it's always awesome!) and get your day job stuff situated. A lessor person would crumble under the pressure. Stand tall! We all adore you and your talent!

Job Update! (October is still on~) 2019-09-23T19:16:34+00:00

Hey guys,

First of all THANK YOU ALL who commented on my Patron Only post about my trial at a job this weekend and understood about me not getting rewards done on time this month. TL;DR For those just following: I was offered a freelance position at a movie studio and was given a trial over the weekend.

The conclusion is, the place isn't for me. It was extremely small, dirty, and unorganized (Digitally was what bothered me, but physically as well). I was working with a bunch of guys who were about 20 years older than me who didn't know how to "send a file path" and kept dumping their busy work on me and their files were all messed up when they got it to me for "finishing touches". It was overall extremely frustrating and I felt like I got 2 hours of work done in about 11 hours.

Thankfully my previous freelance job was happy to have me back and I'm hired for this week and am on hold for the next! This means I will have a normal work schedule for October and will be able to get rewards done and won't put Patreon on pause.

I'll still be searching for a regular compositing job that's the perfect fit for me, but being able to try this out AND recognizing this was a bad choice for my mental health was a big step for me! Even my therapist is very proud of me. Thank you all again for letting me give it a shot and understanding that my real job is very important to me!


I'll make sure to extra update this week with lens clips to make up for being so quiet this last week <3

I got home from Magwest last night and had a great time! During the convention I got to cosplay with my friend PinkHarm and she did an outfit of the final boss from Kirby and the Crystal Shards. I think she looked so cute and we took a few pics together I wanted to share with you guy.

If you are active on my Twitter at all you probably saw that I had a lot of conflicting news coming in on the job side of things today! My current freelance job was fighting with another studio to see who would get to hire me freelance and have me available and it was very...weird. A nice feeling to be wanted but weird.

At the moment I am for sure working until Friday at my current freelance job, and I also am starting a small remote freelance job on a movie that needs to be done in 4 weeks. I have the possibility of 3 things after that:

1) Working at a studio in South Pasadena on some new movies for a few months

2) Continuing to work at the current laid back studio on boring work

3) Only do the remote movie job

If 2 or 3 happens I will be fine, but I'm a bit concerned about option 1 as that means I'll be pulling a lot of overtime and will have a second job on top of that! If 1 ends up becoming my life I think I will be putting my Patreon on pause for the month of October so I don't burn myself out. It's an option that doesn't charge any of you guys any money so don't worry if that happens! I should know by the end of the week what is going on and I just wanted to give you all a heads up because I was thinking outloud to myself about it on twitter.


Freelance life is rough and you guys typically know about stuff as soon as I do. It's a lot of "Hurry up and wait and hope to god you're available when they need you" kind of stuff and it can be spontaneous and stressful. Thank you to all ya'll who understand that I've got a real job and cosplay is just a side thing~

I got one of my shoots back from Anime Expo! Because of some rights stipulations I will not be releasing the images as a Patron, set but will be releasing them on here and my social media for free (at a slower rate, there's 10 photos).


This is the first of my three favorite shots from the shoot!

September Update! 2019-09-01T05:02:06+00:00

It's almost September and it's still so hot...that's LA for ya...



Real Life

Things have gone through a lot of changes this month as you probably have seen! These last two weeks I wanted to dip my toes to get back into working and I just went straight into a standard amount of work someone would do on a weekly basis. Which for me, that's a light load.

Currently I'm freelancing at an advertising studio for normal work hours M-F (no overtime at the moment but that might change) last week was very weird and not stressful at all. I got extended for the rest of the week after labor day and we'll see how things go after that. This is not a company I'd like to stay at permanently, but for now it's a nice and chill thing to nudge me back into the groove of things.

I had a few people fill me in for some remote work standard work that I can pick up if the advertising agency doesn't continue. One's compositing and ones for animation. I'll deffo keep you guys in the loop as I figure out whats going on though!



Goal Met! (For the moment)

I posted before that we reached my $700 a month goal to do the Pig Maid shoot with real piggies! As of today we dropped below that and I expect tomorrow and the following day it will drop a little more. As long as we are hovering in the area though I will still continue planning on it though!



GIFs, Prints, and Polaroid for 90's/Swimsuit shooting tomorrow!

In case you missed it, I'm doing all the last of the 90's/Swimsuit rewards tomorrow because we will be getting the wonderful much better camera for increased shoot quality~ I would have had to do two shoots so I just wanted to save time and do it all together at once.

My plans are to get GIFs and Prints edited and out tomorrow night (it might hover into the after midnight hours, but like still in the same time period of the "day") and Polaroid proofs will be printed and emailed out on Monday!



September Plans

Haaaa, I'm not going to do a public Snorlax shoot for September even though I plan on getting the costume done in the next two weeks because I don't wanna stress about it :')

So instead you guys are going to be getting~

One backup shoot I did which is Solo Poogie in bed that I did, which I should either be out before Magwest or right after.


As well as a mini shoot of my Yamato Nadeshiko Solo (since my R.Mika lives all the way in Chicago)

GIFs, Polaroids, and Prints will revolve around Nadeshiko this month since I already gave you all rewards with Poogie already. Also I say mini shoot but the likelihood of it still being around the normal amount of pictures is pretty high. Nadeshiko is just, essentially a prop to R.Mika, so I don't want to get over my head and run of of ideas or break character to make things work without Mika.

I do wanna try to get some photos putting Yasha Makeup on like I just went solo and am mad at Mika though! (No outfit, I don't have the time for that shit.)



MagWest!

Did you know Chet's in a band?

Now you do and they're going to be playing at MagWest September 13-15th in San Jose!

I am playing band manager so he doesn't get overwhelmed so I will be tagging along with him and possibly running whatever merch booth they have during their concert?

I'm not very prepared to be honest but would like to get my Snorlax Cosplay done for this and to bring my Kirby cosplay as well! If you guys will be attending let me know! And if not please check out the Magwest livestream during their show to show your support! I'll update you all with the schedule once we figure it out.


October Plans

The likelihood of me having Snorlax done for a shoot I can get done in the second half of September is high! But...it IS October, my favorite month because of Halloween. Also my birthday (Jesus Christ I'm going to be 30....)

There's a lot of options I have. Snorlax, Halloween Outfit, Birthday Outfit, something spooky. I DON'T KNOW. I'm open to ideas so lemme know what you guys wanna see.


Progress

All I'm planning on working on this month cosplay wise is Snorlax and designing whatever I'd like to wear for Halloween this year!


Commissions

I'm so happy I got so much done last month! It lifted a huge rock off of my shoulders and I'm very grateful. I still am plowing through some stuff so this is what I'd like to check off this month:

  • Cartoon Cipher Animations (Due on September 20th, will make a whole post for that when I'm done)
  • Infinite Combo T-Shirt Design for MagWest (Due Monday)
  • Pacman Kigurumi


Anything else?

Yes indeed! I still need to do a write up on how I made my Nadeshiko outfit so expect that sometime this month.

Also Midna Ash and I are talking about getting an Elfuda and Kuroda shoot done sometime this month, but I'm busy until after MagWest and I know she's going through a lot of stuff. But we are planning and I think this will either happen this or next month.

I also do want to do a Jackbox Games livestream but it's not gonna happen this month. I know I was trying out that reward (I've kept it on the $1 reward as "TRYING OUT" since I started it) and I want to keep it, but I think I'm going to start attempting to do it monthly, but it won't be a guaranteed monthly reward. It's just a bit too much to secure when work is sporadic and I don't know whats going on.


And that's about it for me! Patron Only update for old set requests, shop coupon code (I'VE GOT ONI POLAROIDS I'VE BEEN WAITING TO PUT UP), last call downloads and post clear out, and so forth will be up either tomorrow or Monday.

Feel free to contact me on any platform, PM, or via email at piggynukkacosplay@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns about anything!

90's Turned Bathing Suit~ 2019-08-26T19:13:20+00:00close

So yesterday was wild. As I let you guys know I wanted to reshoot my 90's set cuz the photos we took before were not up to my standard and most were un-salvagable (we had sensor issues with focusing. So a stripe on my outfit would be the focal point and then blur the rest of me. Even doing High Passes to resharpen it just looked like shit. I'll be including a few but I didn't have enough for an entire shoot!).

It got better though because I COULDN'T FIND MY FREAKING SHORTS THAT MATCHED. I legit tore apart my room yesterday and they're no where to be found. So if you saw my lens clip yesterday I said I decided to instead shoot in my swimsuit and still use the top.

So yesterday turned into a beach bathing suit shoot, and even with all the problems it turned out really nice!!! I really like this photo specifically!

I'm going to be grinding away so I'll either have the shoot out tonight or tomorrow for all you Patrons :3

Reshooting 90's outfit tomorrow (on the beach!) 2019-08-25T05:06:33+00:00

Hey everyone! The reason 90's photos haven't come out this month yet are because the shoot I did before was a bust :') Over 75% of the photos have major focusing issues that I just can't save. It was one of the reasons that pushed me to find a different camera because I basically wasted a huge chunk of money renting a space to do photos...

But! I am going to Santa Monica pier with my friend tomorrow to retake photos and get some that actually look good. I'm going to be also doing my best to make do with some of the photos I did get from the studio so they'll be a mix of both and I should have everything edited and out the beginning of next week~

Shoot Quality Increasing! Info Inside~! 2019-08-24T03:03:54+00:00

I'm happy to announce that moving forward with newly shot shoots, the quality will be much better and I will be able to control things a lot more! One of my other cosplay friends is upgrading her equipment and is passing down her camera down to me on a payment plan.

I know a lot of you don't know much about camera stuff (and I'm still learning myself) but the camera we have been using when Chet has been shooting my stuff is from 2008, so the sensor is over 10 years old and not good. We have a lot of issues with not being able to shoot anything in low lighting, high noise, focusing issues, and a lot more which puts a lot on me in post production to try to make it things usable and to a "professional" quality.

I've had a lot of issues with Patreon shoots so far because I either have to work with other photographers every month which is a loss of my income, sometimes I don't feel as comfortable (only because they're not my partner), and I have to wait to get photos back on their schedule OR Chet and I would shoot and photos wouldn't come out so I'd either lose a lot time trying to salvage what I shot or I'd have to completely reshoot it.

So I am actually VERY hype for this because I feel like I'm going to be able to give you all what I want to do every month. Thank you for all of your support and I can't wait to show you all what I can do with the proper equipment.

Elfuda Costume Walkthrough 2019-08-23T20:49:07+00:00

I'm running behind on doing some walkthroughs and How-To's on how I made my costumes! So lets get back on the train!

As someone who is struggling with their weight right now I read Plus Sized Elf and really loved the silliness of Elfuda and her not really wanting to lose weight if it's coming in way of her eating her precious french fries. I usually don't jump on a doing a cosplay that fast but I fell in love quick and wanted to make her!

Simple cosplays like this seem like they're easy, but I feel like you need to put extra work in simplistic stuff like this to make it stand out since it's easier to see.


Wig

I knew this was going to be the one piece of this costume I was going to put the most work into. I started out with a Jeannie from Arda Wigs in the color Champagne. I thought it would mesh with my skin tone a little bit better than a lighter blonde.


The wig comes with a clip on long pony tail that is detachable, so after taking that off my first job was to separate out the pieces of the wig and heat style it so it stayed in place. With wigs like this you need to hit it with a blow dryer on the pieces you take out so the fibers become meldable and then cool in the position you need.



Arda Wigs have much larger wig caps to help fit our giant American heads, which works great unless you're doing updo styles. With these you need to have them fit your head almost exactly so the hair goes over your skull naturally without any weird bulges. I went ahead and made a dart in my wig since it was a bit bigger near the bottom. You can find a tutorial on how to do this yourself here.



With updo wigs it's also really good to consider if stubbing is a good option for you. Stubbing is the process of cutting off extra hair on the ponytail and then gluing the nub that's left in place. If you have long hair, this is really helpful to stop drooping since you can attach other hair that is more dispersed to distribute weight, or in my case, allows you to add pre-done hairpieces so you don't have to do it yourself. You can find a tutorial on how to do that here.



We're starting to get there! After this I went ahead and just did some basic trimming and cutting to match Elfuda's style and started making the braids! Taking actual hair from the wig to braid I felt wasn't a great idea since the hair on these wigs are placed ever so carefully to cover the wefting, and even pulling down a little bit of hair for her ear ahoge was starting to show the wefting underneath. I thankfully had that large clip on pony tail I wasn't using for anything though! I went ahead and took some wefts from that and glued them together.



I wrapped the closed end end in a similar color felt and glued it down and then cut off the lace holding it together and basically stubbed it. I went ahead and braided it off the wig and then cut it to the length I needed and repeated the felt process on the other side. At first I thought putting clips on the backs of them to attach it to the wig would be a great idea but it ended up making it too bulky. So I went ahead and just carefully sewed the braids to the front and then to the elastic on the pony tail to hold them in place. I went ahead and placed the hair around the front so it looked like it was actually a braid coming from the scalp as well.



From there I just did a few more trims to the wig, did some heat styling so the ear pieces had a nice curve, tipped some areas with hair wax, and then attached my bun piece to the back and it was perfect! I really loved how the wig all came out.



Pants

The next interesting part of this costume was the pants. In the comic it's very obvious that Elfuda is wearing a pair of joggers/sweatpants that she got too fat for which you can see in how her pantylines show in the back and the sagging around the ankles. BUT THAT'S NOT HOW SWEATS WORK AT ALL.

I decided the best way to go around this was to make a pair of leggings out of a stretchy material that was a bit thicker like sweats and to make certain areas tighter and others baggy. I went ahead and made a masking tape pattern of a pair of leggings I already owned to start.


Something I didn't consider though was that the stretch across the knit would GREATLY VARY and that the waistband on my original leggings was pretty big. The first go I had went...very badly and I had to make another base pair. This is why I always buy extra fabric!



Round two went much better! I haven't worked with knit a ton and I knew that I didn't want the stripes to pull and warp in tight areas of the pants so I went with a thin spandex and backed it with knit stabilizer to start. Sadly, since the spandex was much thinner than the green fabric that caused a lot of weird puckering and pulling that I didn't like the look for.



SO OUT THEY CAME and I did another go with a thicker fabric and this worked wonderfully! I learned an important lesson from this to consider in the future too. After that it was just hemming the legs and putting in the waistband+elastic and it was complete.


Shirt

This was pretty simple. White shirts are usually made of thin fabric (especially for women) and even though Elfuda is kind of a slob, I thought she'd go for something thicker and akin to a work out shirt. I was able to find a pretty thick shirt from Uniqlo that fit what I wanted.



Tasha Leigh already had the "Love Oil" characters made so she sent me the PNG and I was able to get a friend of mine to do a vinyl cut out of it so I could do some "Fake Screen Printing". Basically you just stick it on the shirt and you can use it as a stencil.



I already have a lot of screenprinting ink from making some Christmas presents a few years back so I just painted over the stencil a few times with a paintbrush and it came out perfect!!



Ears

I got my ears from Aradani Costumes. I got them painted in the fair skin tone but they still didn't match my skin. I went and got some grease paint that was a bit more pink and to my skin tone. I wanted to add shading but didn't want to invest in a collection of other grease paints so after there was a few layers of my original color on, I went ahead and did shading and highlights with eyeshadow. Normal makeup DOES BREAK UP LATEX, but since the eyeshadow isn't directly touching the latex it seems to be doing fine.


Before (Left) and After (Right)


Bow

I have gotten a lot of questions of where I got my bow so I also wanted to address this. I got a very cheap bow and arrow pack from a costume shop in Hollywood. It came covered in felt that was really ugly.



I thought this would just be a temporary bow until I could afford to get a better one, but I was happy to find that under the felt there was just a cheap wood!



I was able to rip off all the felt and then I just spray painted the bow brown. I also added tennis racket grips to the middle.




And that's about all for this walkthrough! As you can see a lot more work went into this costume than it probably seems and I think it shows and paid off! If you have any questions about any part of walkthrough please feel free to shoot me a DM or an email at piggynukkacosplay@gmail.com.


Happy crafting!

Goal reached! Pig Maid Shoot with Actual Pigs!!! 2019-08-22T20:40:02+00:00close

Thank you everyone for helping me reach my next goal!

I'm very hype for this and have gotten permission from my friends in Arizona to shoot with their pigs. It will take me a little bit to get things situated for the shoot as I have to design and make costumes for these little angels as well as plan and drive out to Phoenix but I will be aiming to travel out there for this in October or November!! (As long as plans work out with their owners).

Even if my pledges drop in that time I'll still be going through with this so no worries, and this shoot will be available to all my Patrons! (Yes even you $1 ones, you helped me get here too).

I'll be posting updates as I design and make the pig costumes so deffo keep your eyes out for that. Until then make sure to check out Paris and Luna's Instagram to see what shinanigans they get up to until then/

The next goal is more far off for sure, but will be to have me make a normal Momohime costume from Muramasa (Best Vanillawear game IMHO)

But also to travel out to Washington to a remote hot springs to try and recreate the bath scenes from the game. It would be the most intensive photoshoot I've ever done, since it would be heavy travel in many manners (flight to Seattle, drive outside of Seattle, 5 mile hike one way and camping) but I think it would be so freaking worth it! I hope I can reach it before next summer~

OMG you would be ADORABLE as Momohime, I can hardly handle this. (I have been wanting to make a new Muramasa costume, but can't decide on one. I like Momohime, but also could re-make Torahime, or make either of the Kitsune's...)

I got the one shoot I did at EVO back of Me and Ashley Riot in our R. Mika and Nadeshiko costumes!

I spoke with the photographer that if things seemed a bit hectic in editing I'd be totally fine with doing it and he passed them all off to me. By the end of the day both Ashley and I were having costume malfunctions mostly in the wigs so these were a bit intimidating to start.

But I'm gonna try to take them time to edit one ever 1-2 days since it's about a 2-3 hour time sink. I'll talk with both the photographer and Ashley if they'd be ok with me putting stuff up on here for Download, but if not I'll deffo post public stuff for everyone to enjoy!

Print Tier Information 2019-08-19T19:47:14+00:00

**I'm making this to link in the actual tier! But this is good info for everyone if you are interested**


So whats the print tier about?

Every month I will be offering two (or more) print quality photos that are not going to be included in the normal set nor offered in my store. With the $15 you get print size digital downloads of the prints, one print of your choice shipped to you signed and with a cosplay card, any extra digital photos I decided to throw in and everything in the $3/$5 tier.

With these photos I will be putting more time into planning the poses I'd like to do as well as editing them to editorial standards. I'll basically just be putting more time into these photos so they look really nice.

I will also be trying to avoid wearing tights, fashion tape and glue as long as it is physically possible in the costume since I will be able to shoot for a shorter amount of time in a controlled environment where I don't have to worry about malfunctions.

I will also say it's safe to assume you will get extra digital photos in this every month, as me shooting and only liking two photos is unlikely.


What if I don't want a physical print?

No problem! Just let me know and I'll add you to a list of people who do not want prints. This will not reduce the price of the tier unfortunately as I do not want to manage two tiers for this and it helps level the cost of physical goods for me for the tier and makes it worth it to keep creating this content!


You say the prints will be "flirty" what does that mean?

I will be trying to gear the photos more to a lot of the stuff you see Ero Cosplayers use to promote their stuff online (as well as referencing). "Cheeky" and "Pinup" would be the best way to describe what I'd like to do. If I feel comfortable being that way as a character or in an outfit, this is a way to get a little more.

Some cosplayers I love that I will be looking to for inspiration are Pialoof, Bunnie Hime, and Pattie Cosplay.

I don't know what they do for their higher content, but most of the photos in terms of posing that they post on social media are things I feel comfortable with and would like to try.


If you feel comfortable doing these as a character? What will you do if you don't?

There's characters like Winnie the Pooh, Parappa the Rapper, and other things I've cosplayed that I wouldn't be ok with doing a pinup print of, because I think that's disingenuous to their character.

If I choose to do a shoot in a month where I wouldn't feel comfortable doing a print, I will shoot something separately for the print tier.

I'm international and want to join the tier and get physical prints

No problem! The only thing is that your prints will be shipped out every 3 months instead of every month. This is to make it so shipping costs are the same for you instead of having to jack up the tier $10+ to allow you to join.

If you pledge for less than 3 months and want to "cash out" your prints I would just require you to pay the shipping difference.


I'm in the Polaroid or Founding Tier and don't want to lose my spot there

Please reach out to me! As long as you adjust your pledge to reflect the rewards you want I do not mind sending you the rewards and keeping contact through email.

I got all dressed up but we lost the light cuz Chet had to work late today (I don't have any lighting equipment so we rely on the sun so we don't have to bump up the ISO). I got all the Polaroids shot myself but I can't take DSLR photos myself.

It sounds like we'll try another day for the hi-res $15 print rewards this week. My new Instax film should be here Wednesday so I'll have proofs for that soon!

New Reward for $3+ Patrons: Expired Shoot Access 2019-08-10T02:01:00+00:00close

I am still getting Patreon to 100% to me but this is another reward I want to offer everyone: expired shoot access!

As you all know, I had to start removing shoots because of the space in my Google Drive as well as scalping problems. You all will still have access to my last 12 shoots (Though I may drop that down to 6 in the next few months with this new system) but for anything that was taken down before you joined, you now can get a coupon for a free shoot out of my Gumroad store 1x per month.

I will make a post for this every month but you will need to message me to request the shoot so I can generate a coupon code for you on that particular item. Gumroad allows me to upload the shoots directly to their cloud system so that allows me to not overfill my drives and for you to have immediate access to these as soon as you get the code and to download at your leisure.

This also helps me by keeping people with consistent pledging and also leaves an option for people who don't want to Patreon to buy a specific set they want. I feel like it's a win/win situation for everyone.


You can check out the Gumroad store here. If you're really jonesing to get a set immediately shoot me a message, but if you can wait this will formally start next month after I get everything together.


Next on the to do list is to figure out how I'm going to go forward with prints and polaroids each month. I should have that figured out in 3-5 days and announce it!

August Plans! 2019-07-29T20:47:57+00:00

August is the month for Fightan' Gaemz

Yeehaw, I'm glad we're getting into the last month of summer because I'm ready for fall. Personal life has been a bit weird. I'm overall ok but I have a lot of things I'm working on that are hard. I hope next month I cam come to say I'm doing better. I will be starting to apply for jobs again after EVO and continuing therapy and stuff to help my overworking nature.



Patreon Changes Moving Forward

As you guys know, I'll be raising my prices on August 1st to help with costs of things. Again, if you are in the $3 you can stay in that pricing! It will be founder pricing and available for the duration of a consistent pledge.

I will be locking the tier to new patrons on August 1st, 11:59 PM PST. After that if you want to pledge you will need to do a $5.

As you guys saw this month I did a lot of shoots! Instead of leaving these as "backups" since I love some of them like the 80's shoot, these will be a more staggered release so I might shoot the 4k shoot a month-2 months ahead of time so there's more than enough time to edit or if work gets busy I have a bit of a buffer. I will be looking and assessing my sets and how I want to release these sets later this month.


Also the $15 Print Tier is Changing to be more "Flirty"

I haven't had a ton of interest in the print tier so starting in August (Though the two of you in it right now are still getting something for July, don't worry!!) I will be doing the tier like so:

Each month there will be a back focused photo and a front focused photo which I will try to make more flirty and saucy than my normal sets. These will not be including in the $3/$5 tier. This will NOT be NSFW, so please don't join thinking you will get something of that nature and get angry.

Both pictures will be available to tiered Patrons as a 4k Digital Download and you can choose one to be printed and mailed to you (or you can skip out). This tier will remove the downloads each week to avoid scalping and it will require you to provide an address for mailing reasons as well as to vet people from leaking.

This will also apply to the international tier I have available as well. You will still receive downloads at the same time as everyone but to keep prices the same and not over charge you for shipping, I will be shipping every 2-3 months depending on where you live.

If there are any questions please leave a comment or DM me!


EVO

I'll be leaving for EVO in about 4 days! This is my favorite event of the year and I'm very excited. I plan on wearing two cosplays (Cop Chun Li and Nadeshiko) and I'm hoping to do a few shoots.

I'll be watching finals in a friends room this year cuz I can't afford it but I will be at the event during pools (2nd and 3rd) if you will be there let me know! I should be easy to find and I still have postcards left from Anime Expo to give out.


August Shoots

In an attempt to actually keep my "I don't want to release stuff right at the end of the month" since Snorlax is still being worked on, I will be releasing my 90's bootyshort outfit set! I did a bunch of more ~saucy~ poses in a studio and I will just need to go out to the beach to do about another 15 and it will be ready!

I also still intend to get Nadeshiko done for EVO. I would really love to do a full set for Patreon of her, but I need to speak with Ashley Riot (My R. Mika) if she would be ok with it. I will be doing a shoot with Ashley regardless, but just me releasing it behind a paywall is where it gets a little tricky.

If Ashley doesn't want to I will still do a Nadeshiko mini set of me only that I'll either get out this or next month as an extra for you guys!

I'm also doing ANOTHER Oni Shoot this month since a photographer hit me up asking if he could. So there will be some BTS and some pictures from that for sure as well!


September Shoot

SNORLAX PUSHED AGAIN AND I WILL EAT MY FUCKING FOOT IF I DON'T FINISH MAKING IT IN AUGUST GAH!


Cartoon Cipher

I mentioned before and I think posted my walkthrough of the logo, but I am working with Cartoon Cipher as their artist and animator for the time being! Today they released a video of a preview of their new weekly anime show they will be doing and you can see my logo and avatar I've been working on for them!

It will take me a little bit to get a finished post on their character since I need to teach one of the folks in the group how to use some different programs I'll be making the puppet in, but by the end of this our little friend up there will be moving while delivering the news and have a full lip sync as well each week!

Keep your eyes open for more stuff about that but for now give their announcement video a watch and sub to these guys! They are hard working and I want them to succeed.

Cartoon Cipher Youtube


Commissions

These kinda took the way side to getting extra shoots done and I feel bad. I did work really hard on Cartoon Ciphers stuff and it's on a home stretch for me to finish some things up just by the end of August. I would still like to get more done this month in that sense.

I'm going to mostly be focusing on the Cosplayer Youtube Opening and a pair of Elfuda pants for Tasha Leigh. I'm also hoping to get the Alstafo commission I was requested to do from FGO and Pacman Kigu but I feel like that's asking for me to get overwhelmed and die.


BUT THERE'S A LOT LESS SHIT GOING ON IN AUGUST SO WHO KNOWS!


And that's about it from me for now. I'm gonna be checking out to get work done but I really appreciate everyones support as I attempted to get a backlog set up for you guys. Thank you ❤︎

Feel free to contact me on any platform, PM, or via email at piggynukkacosplay@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns about anything!

Reminder of price increase to New Patrons 2019-07-25T20:41:17+00:00close

Hey everyone,

My sister left this morning and I took a LONG ASS SLEEP JESUS. I woke up at 1 PM.

BUT I wanted to remind everyone that if you are not pledging or are in the $1 tier and have been interested in the $3 tier that prices are going up on August 1st! At 11:59 PM (PST) on August 1st I will be locking the $3 tier to the number of patrons that are currently in it.

So that means if you pledge before then you can still get in for $3 and have it that cost for as long as the consistency of your pledge.

This price increase in the main reason I have done so many shoots this month so right now I have...

  • At least one other Oni Girl Shoot besides the one that's releasing for rewards this month
  • Solo Poogie Bed Shoot
  • 90's Booty Shorts Outfit
  • 80's Jazzercise Outfit


I also have EVO coming up next week that I'm wearing Nadeshiko and Cop Chun Li so the likelihood of me getting a shoot of one of those are very high. I'm getting so on top of things and I hope you all will love the work I've been putting into it.

Sister leaving tomorrow! Back on Patreon stuff~ 2019-07-25T00:47:59+00:00close

Hey guys,

My little sister has been visiting for the last 3 days which is why I've been mildly quiet. I'll be pouncing back at working on Patreon stuff tomorrow after I take her in the airport in the morning.

You guys get something out of it since she shot photos of me while she was here 😋 so thanks for understanding of me not being as on top of things for a few days~

Shooting my 80's outfit! 2019-07-24T01:13:04+00:00close

The studio my friend rented has two spaces and the one she got is really steampunk and I had no idea LOL

We're trying to make the best of it though and already have gotten great pics! Check out lens for some previews~

Live Stream this month! 2019-07-22T17:39:08+00:00

Man shit is getting crazy and time goes by so freaking fast!!!


The majority of the votes for the livestream were for Saturday afternoon so I will be hosting it at Noon (PST) on July 27th.


Also shoot went mostly good yesterday! We got a lot of photos but I couldn't stay for the full time, a locker that was on a dolly we were using for some photos fell and clipped me in the leg and arm. My leg just has a bump but my arm HURTS. It specifically got my wrist and forearm so if I hold in certain positions too long it starts to ache. I figure in the next day or two it'll be a lot better but for now I must heal~

Hey everyone! I'm ready to head off and get two shoots done today! I'll be shooting a more comfy bedroom set of Solo Poogie from Monster Hunter as well as doing a shoot of this crop top and the booty shorts that go with it.

GETTING A BACKLOG YEAH YEAH~ And one more shoot will be done on Tuesday of that Jazzercize outfit.

I'll make sure to take of BTS for Lens!

Playing around with Oni Photos~ 2019-07-19T18:56:40+00:00close

I got the photos back from our Oni Shoot unedited and I was playing around with a look I wanted for them and I went probably wayyyy too far on the artistic side of things.

This is the kind of photography I like for my cosplay stuff though! I feel like this tells a story even though it's just on a stoic background. I really hope that doing these shoot backlogs will help me be able to play around with the looks and editing for my rewards a lot more for you guys more often.

What do you all prefer? Fun stuff like this or do you not really care and just want simple straight on stuff?

I feel like it depends on the shoot. A detailed costume warrants a detailed photo shoot, an everyday outfit maybe doesn’t need something super detailed and artsy. But it also depends on how you feel and what you wanna shoot

User #176195 - 19 Jul 19 19:19
I prefer the the narrative. The special stuff is better than one pose with five different facial expressions.
user avatar
piggynukkacosplay - 19 Jul 19 22:42
I agree! I usually try to make sure 25 of the photos in the sets are all at least slightly different pose variations or angles to help! I would hate if someone was like "25 photos minimum" and it was just 5 poses with 5 diff expressions hahahaha.

The simple. The frontal. You basically.

User #5062228 - 20 Jul 19 17:07
I can appreciate both, I think it depends on the shoot/cosplay which style would fit better in a specific instance in my own opinion.

User #3726853 - 19 Jul 19 20:14
I love the more artistic/narrative stuff! I know it's more work to do that, but I'd love to see that when you have the time for it 💖

piggynukkacosplay - 19 Jul 19 22:43
Cosplayers tend to think alike uwu I love putting the work into it as long as I have the time which I'm REALLY hoping to start doing going forward. Just having a month to edit a shoot so I can do like 1-2 photos a night and really go foward with it.
Ack! Content Stolen again! 2019-07-14T18:10:35+00:00

Hey guys!


Just found out all the links for my shoots and all the content on here was posted again! All google drive links are off and I will need to reupload all of them. It will take me about 24 hours so sorry for all content being gone for that time ;_;


I am 100% sure I know who did this and it sucks cuz they used a fake credit card so I got $0 from their pledge. I thought it was weird someone went into my polaroid tier and stole a spot and gave me a fake address.

Got my order from Shopholik and DANG I LOVE THIS! It's so me and super comfy. Chet and I are gonna do a backup shoot of this sometime in July on the Santa Monica boardwalk.

It will include a Yo! MTV Raps hat and my longboard for ultimate 90's vibes.

First Oni Girl Photo! 2019-07-12T19:59:07+00:00close

Last night Howl sent me this photo of my Oni Girl and I love it! I shared it on my social media but I wanted to make sure that you guys got to see it too.

Gosh, I love this costume so much and I wanna do more with her. I'm thinking about maybe when I'm in Vegas for EVO to wear that cute black and white jumpsuit I got with the hella clevage and do like, Oni Girl out on the town or something. Do you guys have any other outfit ideas? I really wanna do more with her.

A concept for a pic I think would look cool is a medium shot where you are staring at the camera while liking your upper lip, in a way that draws atention to one of your fangs. I think that would give the same mix of sexy but a little hint of danger your halloween pics had. Also, hope this is not too weird, but I got a thing for mean but cute girls flipping the bird :3

Oni Girl would look rad on a balcony with Vegas behind her! Other than a rougher punk look, maybe swing the other way and make a more Japanese costume for her. Maybe cannibalize other costumes and make a kimono. Or pack the wig and prosthetics along if you ever manage that hot springs photo shoot!

Omg Jnco Jeans are so fucking expensive and I would also need to do a kickflip while smoking a juul if I wore those.
Some Updates! (Please Read) 2019-07-11T17:36:52+00:00

Hey everyone,

I've been doing my best to get shit together for the price increase in August. Remember all of you currently in the $3 tier can stay there. If you unpledge you will lose that spot but you can stay in it for as long as you consistently pledge. Also Patrons interested who are not currently pledged, you have 19 more days to jump in the $3 tier before it moves up to $5.



BUT THE IMPORTANT NEWS

August 1st will also come with some small changes that possibly will benefit you but also me in the long run!


*OLD SETS WILL BE A REWARD AVAILABLE THROUGH A COUPON FOR $3+ TIERS*

You know how I had to cut down to 12 sets currently available on here? Well I will be making old sets available on my Gumroad account! For each month you are a Patron you will get a one time use coupon that will allow you to get the set for absolutely free. If you don't wanna do it, and just wanna set they'll be $10 a pop.

This helps me since I can individually send out older sets and not have them backed up online and it will stop folks from trying to bargain with me in my DM's to get sets and not join Patreon.


*PRINT TIER IS CHANGING TO BE MORE ~SAUCY~*

I guess people don't like prints cuz I've only had 3 people join the print tier (One provided a fake address?) and I only have one person currently in it.

So in an attempt to make it more appealing starting August 1st I will be gearing the monthly print to be more flirty. Me doing a poll to ask what people want hasn't really helped so I will probably start offering two prints (one back focused and one front focused). Both will be available to you as a Print Tier via Digital Download but you will have to pick one for what is delivered to you. Neither picture will be included in the $3/5 tier so that will be the only way to check it out.

If this doesn't get more folks interested I'll probably go ahead and cut that as an option!


SHOOTING A LOT OF SHIT THIS MONTH

The official Patreon Oni Girl set is being shot on Wednesday with my friend Gaimie. I'm also going to be shooting something with my sister while she's visiting near the end of the month and Chet and I will be shooting a 90's boardwalk inspired outfit at Santa Monica Pier and Beach in this outfit.


The last two will be backup shoots and will NOT be releasing this month. As I create a small backup of 3 or 4 shoots I will probably release a couple extra shoots in a month and then be able to just plan a month ahead so myself and my photographers will have 30+ days to edit something instead of trying to slam it out in two weeks. That also means I'll be able to release things in the middle or beginning of the month instead of the end.


I'm taking this very seriously so thank you guys for sticking with me on this journey! I'm gonna make this Patreon the best I can for you all.
