Hello everyone! I never thought I would find myself doing something like this and so I am going to be blunt: Life is expensive. Especially as an adult when you are expected to do things like pay rent and bills and insurance for your car and feed your husband and cat. It can really catch up with someone.
Things become even more complicated when you add in an expensive hobby. Cosplay. As a responsible adult, I realize that my aforementioned expenses come before things like paying for hotels, con tickets, costumes and accessories, etc. however that doesn't mean that I will just give up said hobby all together without a fight.
Myself, my sister (and cosplay partner in ~DuoPrincess) ~RedVelvet-Cake and my husband were planning to attend a convention in April, however thanks to some unexpected speed bumps, my bank account is looking emptier than ever. The convention in question is AD Sabokon in Las Vegas, Nevada where we not only have plans to visit with out-of-state friends but there is a Persona group featuring said friends that we are supposed to be apart of. It is basically the one thing I have been looking forward to all year and I will be crushed if things fall apart now.
I am not the type to just blindly ask for money with nothing in return, so here is what I am willing to offer: I need to raise at least $200 for convention and travel expenses. I have set up a PayPal account with the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
For everyone who donates (even the smallest amount helps!), I will draw something for you. Fanart, OCs, pairings, you name it! When you make your donation, please be sure to leave your request along with a way that I can contact you (DeviantART, Twitter, Tumblr, etc) when your picture is done.
If you cannot donate, please help spread the word! I am desperate here and I know that I cannot do this without you! Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for all of your help!
