What's up guys? I'm Beth but I go under Dark Skies Cosplay! I wanna start this off with a huge thank you to everyone who chooses to support me in this craft! It truly means a lot to me and as this grows, as we grow as a giant family, I can give more back to you amazing people with time!

So to start, my journey started way back in 2008. I was invited to my friend's Halloween wedding where it was requested to dress up. I had been playing Kingdom Hearts at the time and the only thing I wanted to wear was Kairi, thus, the photo above was born. In 2009, I attended my second convention ever, Anime Festival Wichita, in Wichita, Kansas. I had hand designed the Keyblade match, since I made Kairi from Halloween Town and with the help of my mother, since I had no idea how to sew at the time, and the help of my good friend's dad, since he had all the power tools, I was able to create the dress, headpiece and keyblade.

That was just the beginning. Soon, Kairi's dress evolved into my Steampunk outfit and I officially retired the Keyblade for a cane sword and a few prop guns. I watched videos, I gained skills, I learned how to make a squirt gun look like a Steampunk gun. I learned to make a necklace out of gears and even a working clock(That's right, the clock in the middle tells time)! I even crafted a backstory to fit for my character and I was hooked. I dived deeper into the cosplay world, not just the Steampunk side.

My second outfit was all body armor and two and a half foot wings(yep, that's right!) that came off my back! I learned how to use EVA foam and craft foam, I learned how to manipulate PVC Pipe to bend and I even learned how to make my own harness to support the wings! Within 3 months, this cosplay was finished and ready for Planet Comicon and I was beyond proud of it. Sure, I knew my crafting skills could grow, and they still are, butt at the time, this was amazing to me.

Just recently I learned to make a Clicker mask from The Last Of Us and I'm still growing in my skills. This outfit, and the ones before have taught me so many things. I am self taught. I don't have a ton of money to build these outfits with. I'm blessed with amazing people willing to teach me crafts so I can do them myself.
So why Patreon?
That's the question, isn't it? That's why we're all here, right? Well, with your help, I'll be able to build bigger and better things! I'll be able to afford photo shoots to offer prints to you amazing people at an affordable price! I'll be able to dip my foot into the pool of prop making and become what I truly love in love(the ability to make and  sell props). Right now, I cannot offer much, but with your help, I'll be able to offer so much more in time!
I want to offer my thanks, give a way to connect with each of you personally, and to be able to continue giving you guys the content you want most!
