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!
Here's a quick overview of how each tier has changed!
This tier gets you into the secret club! You get access to my Patron-only WIP and behind the scenes feed, as well as my brand new private Patron-only Instagram, where I'll downright spam my Patrons with updates, both serious and silly.
This tier also gets you into the exclusive livestreams that I do after each cosplay is finished, where we can chat about cosplay and anything else you're interested in!
I also added a twitter shout-out, if you're okay with it, so I can publicly thank you for your help!
This tier got some serious bulking up! In addition to the early access to photos and high res desktop and mobile wallpapers that this tier already offered, I added a 25% discount on all print purchases, the ability to vote on which cosplay I'll tackle next, and I moved the photoshoot behind-the-scenes video down from the $10 tier into this one, to make it more accessible!
Previously, this tier gave you access to either a photo editing timelapse or a crafting walkthrough, but I've decided that that "or" should be an "and"! Now, this tier gets both of those videos for every costume.
I've also added close-up detail photos for every costume, so you can really see the handiwork, a 15-minute one-on-one text chat for each costume cycle where I can offer personalized cosplay feedback or critique, or we can just chat, and access to a Patron-exclusive cosplay suggestion box on my website, where you can suggest cosplays you'd like to see me do, and I'll research them and consider them!
In addition to the signed print that is offered with this tier, I wanted to do something else tangible. I really like how some cosplayers do polaroids, since they're one of a kind (and so retro!) but since I shoot most of my photos myself, polaroids would be difficult to achieve! So instead, I decided to offer one of a kind photobooth strips with this tier. (That means I'll be visiting the mall in costume every once in a while... eep!)
I actually only introduced this tier recently, but I couldn't help adding to this one, too! This tier included a 4x6 goofy/silly print, as well as a hand-written thank you letter and whatever cool things I want to add each time — stickers, postcards, doodles, etc. (I have a bunch of fun ideas for this!)
I also added a free 8x10 print of your choice, including images I don't usually offer as prints!
