I've been running my Patreon for about 8 months now, and after conducting my first Patron survey, I decided it was time to update my reward tiers! I didn't remove anything, but I did shuffle some things around, and I've added nine new reward items to the existing tiers, so basically... everything has gotten better, at no cost to you!
When Arya first wore her House of Black and White robes in Season 5 of Game of Thrones, I practically threw a party. She'd been wearing the same outfit for three full seasons, and while I loved that the costume was recognizable... I really wanted to be able to make something new. So I jumped on it pretty immediately, even though the costume was pretty much exclusively shown in dark scenes, and very difficult to make out.
I recently had the opportunity to receive a costume from cosall.com!
Full disclosure: It was sent to me for free so I could do a review, but I'm gonna give you my honest opinion, good and bad, so you can decide whether or not it's somewhere you'd wanna buy from!
You guys probably know I usually make all my costumes, but I am a firm believer that cosplay is for everyone, whether you wanna sew, buy, or borrow your costume. So for those of you who do buy costumes, hopefully this review will help you decide if you want to buy from Cosall.

When I created my Pokémon Go trainer’s costume at light speed the weekend after the game was released, I had no idea that it would explode into thousands of new followers and dozens of commission requests. Unfortunately, I’m really not the commissioning type — I barely have enough time to sew for myself as it is! But what I can do for all the Pokétrainer hopefuls out there is walk you through how I put together my costume, so you can take a stab at your own!
