To date, I have focused on recreating characters from games and television series that I particularly enjoy and find interesting. I have tried to utilize a variety of crafting skills to bring out the best and most accurate character I can. I also try to expand my skill set as I attempt each subsequent character, though living in a small apartment, unfortunately, limits some of what I can do.
So far, sewing and patterning are by far the most commonly used skills, but I have also worked with clay, paint, wire, paper mache, plaster casting, and beading. I have also worked with wood, bone and leather in the past, though I have not had the opportunity to incorporate those skills in a costume project as of yet. Recently, I have begun expanding into working with easily molded plastics, such as wonderflex, pvc, and friendly plastic. I would also like to expand more into working with moving parts and more interactive elements and lights. I am excited and open to learning any new skills out there.
The sub-pages in this category include all of my finished, in progress, and planned costumes. I will try my best to present and discuss materials and construction details. Please feel free to leave any comments and ask questions.
