I’m sure a few of you out there have been waiting for this one.
I have been cosplaying since 2007 but this is honestly the first step for me into this side of the cosplay world. I have always thought of this as a hobby where I would never make money from it. I felt that this would only be something that I could use to “escape” the real world and put some smiles on children’s faces when I come strolling into the children’s hospital or even the convention floor dressed as their favorite video game or comic book character. Once I learned that there were cosplayers out there that were well known enough to offer prints to their fans I was surprised. It was like an entirely new world of cosplay to me and I honestly thought it was kind of cool. However, I didn’t think I would ever get to that point.
Apparently I was (sort of) proven wrong. While I am still no where near well known as most cosplayers, I really have had some requests from my followers for prints. I’m flattered, of course, but I wasn’t sure if it was something I could get into at the beginning. Recently, however, I’ve been giving it a little bit more thought. If this is something everyone wants, then why not give it a shot? So, I want to reach out to everyone who follows me through this blog, my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by putting some feelers out there for a little bit of feedback and see what my followers have to say!
I just want to warn you: they will not be available right away if this is something I decide to pursue.
If I were to offer prints, there would be a process that comes along with it. First, I’d have to find a good place to have the prints made, research the policies with opening up an online store through Storenvy, Etsy, or whatever other choices I may have. The second part of this process is getting some photoshoots done of all my cosplays!
Here are the cosplays I would most likely be offering (until I get more done obviously):
- Arkham City Harley Quinn
- Slave Leia
- Arkham Asylum Harley Quinn (maybe)
- Portal 2 Chell (hoping to get boots done before this one happens)
- True Blood Jessica?
Man I need more cosplays. 😛
There will also be a photoshoot happening at some point with Arkham City Harley and New 52 Joker. That may also open up more options for prints with the both of us. So here is my little questionnaire!
- Would you want prints from me?
- What cosplays would you like to see prints of?
- Do you have suggestions for more potential cosplays that you would like to see from me?
- Do you like fairies?
- Feedback for me is always appreciated! Let’s just keep it constructive!
If you could let me know what you think in the comments below, that would be awesome! I love hearing feedback and knowing what my followers want from me! I will let you know now that all proceeds I would potentially gain from print sales would first go toward bills and college tuition with the remainder going toward cosplays. Being an adult sucks, but I gotta make sure I have a roof over my head, food in my stomach, and electricity so I can continue bringing you awesome content and be able to practice sewing for cosplays!
Thank you for your support! <3
