The Wealth of Kaitlyn Siragusa
How rich is Kaitlyn Siragusa? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $300,000, earned through success in her various endeavors. She earns a huge amount of income thanks to her business, and also has a Patreon account which provides her additional funds. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Cosplay Beginnings
Very little is known about Kaitlyn’s life prior to her rise to fame, as she hasn’t shared a lot of details regarding her family, childhood, and education. It is known that she has been highly interested in cosplay since she was young, and developed the skills needed to succeed in the craft at a early age. She created costumes, props, and prepared herself to look more like the character she was portraying.
Cosplay is a performance art in which participants portray certain characters from pop culture using costumes. It’s not unusual to see other interpretations of characters such as gender-swaps in cosplays. Some of the most popular sources of cosplaying include anime, video games, comic books, manga, and cartoons. The craft began in the 1990s, and has rapidly grown in popularity since, spreading from its origins in Japan to numerous parts of the world. Today, there are conventions catering to cosplayers, as well as websites dedicated to the craft.
Professional Career and Business
As Kaitlyn was designing costumes and participating in events, she was eventually discovered by the Houston Grand Opera (HGO), which hired her as a costume designer. The organization which was established in the 1950s by Walter Herbert, and is known for their airing of various operas. The company presents six to eight productions per season, regularly producing new works from American composers, and operates under a budget of $27 million, with the capacity of their theatres amounts to 3,300. The job also helped Kaitlyn gain work with the Houston Ballet, the fourth largest ballet company in the US, which also maintains its own Academy and trains over half of its dancers. They hold one of the largest endowments for a dance company at $73 million, and conducts over 85 performances annually.
The job helped increase her wealth significantly and also gave her the income needed to continue her passion in cosplay. Aside from that, she created her own company called A Charmed Affair, which provides a princess experience to children wanting to have a themed birthday. Popular characters from Disney are used, and they often have stories, games, as well as other crafts prepared for an event.
Side Projects and Additional Work
Aside from her main job and her cosplay endeavors, she also dedicates a lot of time towards streaming on Twitch, which is a live streaming platform focused on video games, though it has recently included other streams. Streamers have the ability to gain donations directly from viewers, and it has become one of the biggest streaming platforms on the internet with over 2.2 million broadcasters monthly and over 15 million using the platform daily. The company was created as a spin-off of Justin.tv, though the parent company was later abandoned to focus more on Twitch.
She started out doing video game streams on Twitch, but later became more of a variety streamer. She does ASMR streaming, and IRL streams in which she communicates with her followers. She also set up her own Patreon account, to cater to fans who have specific requests of her, typically those attracted to her who want her to provide content portraying a particular character. Patreon is a crowd funding membership platform, to help content creators run a subscription service. It is highly popular among YouTubers, though others have used it including artists, musicians, podcasters and writers.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known in terms of any of Siragusa’s romantic relationships. Several sources state that she is single, and is likely due to her Patreon and NSFW (not safe for work) posts on several websites. She has also not stated anything about having a boyfriend, as she has kept the topic out of the spotlight. She is mainly focused on her career and is still young, which is why many believe that she is not interested in being romantically attached in the long term.
