This tier is probably the most bang for your buck. For just two measly dollars (or more... I wont stop you...) per month I am giving you access to our interactive Patreon feed which will include things like:

  • Early access to new videos: I will upload new videos right here for my wonderful Patrons to see before anyone else!
  • Access to Prototyping Vlog: Unlike my regular tutorials, you will get to join me as I make mistakes and try new and possibly dangerous things in the name of high tech costuming! While I cant promise explosions... I cant promise there wont be any either...
  • Adblock forgiveness: Supporting me on Patreon eliminates that guilt that you definitely feel when you block my monetized adds on Youtube and allows me to make more tutorials more consistently.
  • Possible Thank You in Vlogs: I couldn't do this without your support! There are too many of you to thank in each post, but on my Vlogs I will personally thank some of you for your support!
  • Insider news: I have a lot of projects in the works. Some are small, some are big! From brand new moving wings to fiber optic dresses and micro controlled headgear, I will keep you updated on all the exciting new projects I am working on! 
  • Community: The Patreon feed is interactive, meaning it's not just a place where I put stuff and you just passively see it. It's a place where you can comment on things and ask me questions and get actively involved even further with me and my projects!  Vote on Vlog topics and my next prototyping project!
Social Hour
$5 per month

Join the maker movement by donating just $5 and you can talk with me personally about your costuming questions and troubles!

  • All Previous Rewards: This reward entitles you to my Patron Only feed and all the goodies it provides. More details above.
  •  Access to the TCF Discord and the ongoing conversation with the maker community! Live discussions, voice chats during hangouts, and occasional additional voice chats during the month if requested!   
  • Live Google Hangouts:  Making costumes and props can be an infuriating, but rewarding process. At this tier you can join me  for a few hours a month to talk about the fun and frustrations of being a maker. I try to have one half hour session once a week or so. I am happy to answer questions and help you come up with new ways to make great costumes!  Or we can just talk about how delicious cupcakes are... whatever... :P
Tutoral Tinkerer
$10 per month
Want more? More action? More Excitement?? MORE MAKING MADNESS!?!?!
At this tier you get:


  • All Previous Rewards: This reward entitles you to my Patron Only feed and all the goodies it provides as well as all the goodies at the $5 tier. More details above.
  • Private Tutorial and Post Archive:  Patreon is not terribly friendly when it comes to finding old posts.  At this tier you can find all of the parts lists, videos, and Blog/Vlog posts from Patreon in an easy to find format.  No more scrolling for a year to find that one post where I talked about that Stuff you need for your project or how to do that one Thing. Here you can find everything quickly and easily and save your poor middle finger from that evil scroll wheel.
  • Personal Thank You in Video Tutorials: I couldn't do this without your support. As a thank you I will select some of you to thank by printed name at the end of each of my video tutorials with possible shoutouts thrown in. I will do my best to get through all of you every few months.
  • Exclusive Text and Image Tutorials: Also on this private page will be text tutorials and images to help you through step by step in making your props! While I understand the video tutorials are great for seeing first hand how something is done what takes 3 days to complete can take just 10 min on a video.  Rather than pressing pause for hours at a time you can print off these pages and follow along at your own pace and watch the videos as a supplement to make sure everything you are doing looks correct!


VIP
$50 per month

Oh Man.  You just cant get enough, can you?  Well thats ok, because there is plenty of Maker love to go around!  If you are a budding cosplayer or maker this is a great tier for you!  Here you get:

  • All Previous Rewards: This reward entitles you to my Patron Only feed and all the goodies it provides as well as all the goodies at the $5, $10 and $20 tier. More details above.
  • Signed Print: One signed print from any photoshoot done by TCF. No additional purchase necessary from the Patron Only Shop, you will get it automatically once we get physical copies.
  • Tutorial Shout out: A personal shout out at the end of my tutorials. Please let me know if you would like to opt out of this :P
  • One-on-One Advice/Critique: Get a 30 minute Skype or Whatsapp chat with me every month!  That google hangout can get crowded, so if you want advice or help regularly with your projects this is a great way to ask me questions one-on-one!  I may not have all the answers, but I'm crafty and we can always figure anything out together if we put our minds to it!

Reward
You are officially my favorite :3 If anyone actually pays for this one you get:
  • All Previous Rewards: This reward entitles you to my Patron Only feed and all the goodies it provides as well as all the goodies at the $5, $10 and $20, and $50 tier. More details above.
  • Exclusive Hangout Day: Hang out with me for a day at a convention of your choice (subject to scheduling restrictions)! Wear a set of wings and strut around with me in style! You can also join me for a day at any convention I am already going to. For my current Con schedule please visit my website thecrookedfeather.com. 
  • Full custom sets of wings: How often you can get a set depends mostly on what set of wings you want.  We can go absolutely bananas with fiber optics and LED lighting and MADNESS every other month or so, full on custom electronics and such may take a bit longer just to account for design and engineering and parts, or if you want just little guys or easy replicas we can do a set per month of active patronage.
