I've set up a Patreon for people to support a new project I'm working on: a series of articles about the cosplay community, cosplayers, cosplay photographers, social issues, etc. 

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform. Whereas Kickstarter is for bigger, one-time projects, Patreon enables fans to support a creator who makes regular, recurring content. All you need is a Facebook account or an email address plus a debit/credit card or a Paypal account. If you've become my patron, at the end of the month you're billed for the amount you've pledged per article. You can cancel at any time, so it's not like you're locked in to be my patron for the rest of time.

I plan on starting out at one article a month, but I'd like to transition to doing maybe two per month. You can set up a monthly maximum so you don't go over your budget.

I don't make much money through writing (I'm a freelance video game journalist), so I'm trying to work on new things that will get me out there doing something good. Cosplay has become more mainstream, but most of the publications reporting on it focus on the costumes through photo galleries. I like looking through those, but I think it has the consequence of a lot of readers focusing on the end result of the costume instead of celebrating the person wearing and making the costumes. 

If you have some money to spare (even $1 per article helps!), I would greatly appreciate it if you could support me on Patreon. I intend to diversify discussion around cosplay.

ToX2: Don't Forget to Have Fun
Tales of Xillia 2 is out now! Hooray! These two years of waiting have been painful! (Now it's time to wait for Zestiria, ahhh!)

I made this costume last year quickly about a week before Otakon, and there are a few issues with it, but I really like wearing it because I love Leia. Of all the Tales characters, I think I relate to her the best. 

Costume details are available at ACP.
