Introductions are hard, so let's start with the basics.

Hello. My name is Sarah Hafley.

How are you? I'm doing fine, myself, thank you for asking.

Who am I?

I am a maker, artist, designer, crafter, and business owner. I am the artisan behind Dungeon Couture and Mystik Merchant. Dungeon Couture is a boutique for the adventurer offering bags, accessories, and apparel with a geeky slant, while Mystik Merchant offers costume reproductions and cosplay clothes, featuring canon-accurate robes and cloaks. I've taken on MM from it's original owner who operated it for 20 years and will be expanding it to include key costumes from a range of fandoms.

Why am I here?

I am here to look for Patrons like you. People with a discerning eye and a curious nature that enjoy helping small creators succeed. The costumes and accessories I sell are lasting investments, but that also means sales are very seasonal. To make up for the dips between seasons, I want to offer a taste of geek couture and design to a wider audience.

What am I going to do with your Patronage?

In a word? Create. Your patronage will support me in the pursuit of unique and well-crafted goods and to experiment with new designs, materials, and techniques. The higher the patronage, the crazier goals I can attempt. I would like to expand beyond just the basics I'm currently offering to include more unusual materials and designs, and that means learning constantly. Scale mail, integrated lighting, unique fabrics, foam armor, and beyond to wherever my imagination leads me.

Your contributions will also help me afford to upgrade and repair equipment, keep up my stock of materials, and offer more content all around. Your small contributions will help me keep the prices of my larger works down and available to the general public. In return I'll give you a carefully tailored and educational look inside of my process, along with the occasional specialty item not offered for general sale.
