P.S. Please note! I AM NOT A COSPLAYER!!! Those of us who have been involved in the art of costume making, especcially in the professional level guilds, have always known our art to be Costuming. "Cosplay" is a relatively new fad that technically means "Costume Role-play" and the focus is not necessarily on the costume, but on the activity. Wearing a costume and posing for pictures also is not necessarily cosplay. As one who focuses on the artform of making a complete character look, I am a Costumer and would prefer being refered to as such. Thank you for understanding!

Also, I do not do commission work. If I have anything for sale, it will be posted to my journal :)

-STOCK- Please note, my work is not stock art. I have had a few people use my work as such in a taseful manner though. If you want to use my work as stock, please ask permission first. Don't use it in any inappropriate manner, and credit me! The costumes I make are hand-made and took a lot of work. :)

Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite style of art: Realism

I'm working on my first renaissance gown and I was impressed by your work on that italian renaissance gown. I thought that was really great, I wish I could sew that well. As such, I cannot find a pattern that I'm happy with so I've opted to make it without a pattern. It takes alot longer though. Great job on that dress! That cotehardie was beautiful too!

Thank you! You know, for the main part of that one, I didn't use a pattern either. Just created a simple bodice (it laces up, so no real fitting issues), and the trained skirt was kind of a large "U" shape which I pleated into the bodice. Good luck with it :)

I've been on your gallery for about 30 minutes, and I'm super impressed!! It makes me want to rekindle my love for the Star Wars universe. 

Do you have any interest in creating GI Joe costumes?  Most of what I've seen has been very "October 31st-ish."  I'm no Costumer, but rather a 3D modeler and 2D digital artist.  Apart from my few 'toon works, I'm all about the appearance of realism in my own craft, as well.
