I am an award winning costume maker and cosplayer based in the Southeastern US. With nearly 20 years of sewing experience, I have built an extensive portfolio of costumes ranging from intricate 18th century court gowns worn at Versailles, to Victorian bustle gowns worn on the international competitive cosplay stage.
I received both undergraduate and Master’s degree from the University of St. Andrews (St. Andrews, Scotland), where I honed my art history and museum studies with an intensive focus on costume and fashion in art.
Specializing in detailed, craftsmanship heavy costumes, my portfolio is versatile and showcases a wide range of skills, from meticulously hand sewn and embroidered historically-inspired costumes to sleek and finely detailed armor builds.
My costumes have won several major awards, including placing in the central region two years running at the Crown Championships of Cosplay, one of the most prestigious international cosplay championships in the world. My work has also been featured in print and online publications, including Bernina’s We All Sew blog and Cosplay Culture magazine.
I present in-depth and informative sewing and costuming panels at conventions around the southeast, with a mission to share knowledge and inspire costume sewists in their journey.
Please contact me directly for convention bookings. I am a craftsmanship oriented maker with background in sewing, armor making, and costume wig styling. I offer several costume, sewing, and craftsmanship related panels. If you would like to see me at your local convention, please suggest me as a guest!
*Please note that at this time I am unfortunately not accepting commissions from new clients outside of my local network. You must be local and have a personal referral. I do NOT loan out or sell my personal costumes, my patterns or my original costume designs.
