WHO IS THIS WEIRD GIRL???
Hey, guys, I’m Jennifer Van Damsel!
I make costumes, I create sets, I do photography, I edit my own photos *insert cool gif of me doing awesome karate moves*, and, I want to use all of these things to take you on some adventures through my brain!
My Patreon is really for those that want to support my creation process, so I can keep growing and learning as an artist. I use Patreon funds to pay my bills, create new sets, make new costumes, purchase new equipment, travel to conventions, and whatever else I need to run my business; like photo paper and shipping supplies.
My work really means the whole world to me, which is why I am so thankful to my Vandals for enabling me to keep creating. This really is a dream job in so many ways and I have so many things I want to show you!
I really hope to get to know you all better, show you all of my cosplay progress steps and tips, and most of all improve upon my crafting and photography skills to really show you I appreciate your support! I want to grow a community with you guys, really interact with one another, and become a big, friendly family!
Well, what are some things about me, anyways?
I talk… a lot. I drink a lot of coffee, I go on tangents forever; I am very forgetful (I future apologize for anything I forget! Please remind me haha). I get distracted easily and I’m sure there’s about a million other things I could put here but, mostly I am VERY shy! It might not seem like it from the way I type but, it’s true! I get so embarrassed trying to make cute or sexy videos!
Okay, so I’m pretty much just a big nerd that loves pen and paper games, RPGs, “vidja” games, tabletop games, Magic the Gathering, movies, music, food, comics, cosplay, photography, art, rainbows, animals, glitter, goth, fashion, drama (in art, not people hahaha)… well, just about everything. Mostly, I love to work, because my work is all of my passions put together!
I have been cosplaying since May of 2012 and photographing my own work since 2017 (yes, I am also the photographer for 95% of my photos!). I worked for a comic book publisher named Overground Comics (check them out too!) for 3 years but, now, creating costumes, designing sets, photography, traveling to conventions, and running my Patreon are my full time job!
