I've made many cosplay costumes and love the challenge of it! Figuring out the components of a cosplay from a movie/TV show/etc., with a client is part of the fun of creating these garments.
I have always loved creating wearable art. It didn't occur to me that other people would want to wear my creations until a few friends and family members commisioned pieces. Since I started my business officially in 2005, I've sold my own designs as well as custom designs. I pretty much do everything in my business (with a little help from family and friends) from designing all the way to working on my website. That means I wear a lot of different hats throughout the day! However, this does not keep me from making sure the quality of my designs are top-notch. And I always work directly with my clients to make sure their vision is fulifilled.
What I love about accessories is that they can completely change an outfit. My accessories complement what you are wearing and make a statement. As in my clothing designs, I also upcyle pieces when applicable.

Designing one-of-a-kind pieces that fit you and express your personal style and taste is one of the most important parts of my work. I love adding vintage pieces when it works with a particular style I'm creating. It's important to me to upcyle when possible.
