I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s and was considered a “tomboy”. I also really enjoyed role-playing adventure games and used to pretend to be specific characters. My role models at that time were Princess Leia, Wonder Woman, and a character called “Princess” from an obscure show called “Battle of the Planets. I loved that these were girls who could keep up with the boys, were strong and smart, and were one of the heroes of the stories.
Celara was a name was born out of my love of a series of books by author David Eddings. I took two of my favorite characters from those books and made a new name from them. Polgara and Ce’Nedra were combined to make Celara and it has been my alter ego ever since.
I want every little girl who has been bullied for wearing a geeky shirt to know that they’re not alone. And I want to celebrate what being a geek really is. Explain why we create fan art, participate in cosplay, and engage in dialogue discussing the minute details of the characters and stories we love. Celara is my homage to how we all connect with each other through these.
If you back this project, you are not just supporting the creation of a calendar, but also the creation of this new character. Thank you so much for your support!
This calendar is an introduction to Celara. The illustrations show all the fandoms that she is a part of and some of the ways she celebrates them, whether they are real or just real to her.

Risks and challenges
Our biggest risk is if we run into any production delays with our printer that would then delay our shipment of these calendars to you. We have a great printer who we are confident will do everything they can to finish and deliver these on time. The art and design of the calendar is well under way and will be done before the Kickstarter is over, so we can begin printing as soon as the campaign ends. We have built in extra time on our end to get these packaged and out the door so should we encounter any delays from the printer, we will hopefully still be in okay shape to get these delivered on time.
Our working goal is to have these in your hands the week before Christmas; however, should we encounter delays, our delivery will be pushed back to December 31. We will keep you posted as the campaign ends and we begin printing with what our timeline looks like.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
