Welcome to Cosplayers for Cats!

Welcome to Cosplayers for Cats, a group that aims to raise money for our favorite charities through our favorite hobby! The pet project of Cowbutt Crunchies Cosplay, here you can find of cosplays, wigs, and tutorials for purchase, with 100% of profits going toward cat-related rescues and organizations. Donate to a great cause, and receive some awesome cosplay tools in return!

Our Rescues and Charities:

ALR Boston
Gifford Cat Shelter
Black Cat Rescue
Kitty Connection
Friends of Animals
Boone County Animal Care


Does all of this money really go to charity?

Yes!! All funds will be divided amongst the above donation groups, minus any shipping costs. The more funds we collect, the more groups we can add!

Why are you doing this? Why cats?

Social media and patreon have become pretty common staples in the cosplay world lately, and many folks have used them to raise money for future cosplay projects. We don't really have a desire to make cosplay a full time job or suppliment our income, but we do have a big interest in giving back to both the cosplay community and to charities.

We also really, really, really like cats. Our cosplay name is based off of our two oldest girls - Hammy has a cow butt and Viola like crunchy food.

I'm a cosplayer and I want to help out even more! What can I do?

We'd love to get more cosplayers involved in this project! You can become a partner by donating part of your own cosplay sales or patreon funds, listing your old cosplays, writing guest tutorials, or just by helping spread the word to your followers! Please email or message us if you're looking to join our group!

Can I see donation receipts from my purchase, or specify which group my donation is sent to? Can I suggest new charities for you to add in the future?

Sure! Just message us!

About Cowbutt Crunchies Cosplay

We are a married duo based in Boston with over 20 years of combined experience of cosplay experience, and at this point we dabble in a huge amount of materials - particularly sewing and extreme wigworking but also armor, electronics, and SFX work. We really enjoy giving that knowledge back to the community so that newer cosplayers don't have to repeat our trial and error mistakes. However we also want to begin to give back in another way, by using our cosplay skills to generate donations to cat-related charities.

We also really, really, really like cats!!
