Are you looking for a unique costume, designed especially for you? I would love to work with you to make your costume dream come true.
When you first contact me we’ll discuss your ideas – is a dark fusion piece what you are looking for perhaps a sassy burlesque costume? The options are endless. If you’re not sure what you want, send me some pictures of yourself and tell me a bit about who you are – I am more than happy to let YOU be my muse and source of inspiration. I work with all sizes and do always take your body shape into consideration when creating your unique piece. You decide on your style and concept and together we can make the costume of your dreams a reality.
The materials I work with, from jewellery and fabric down to the buttons and threads, are as far as possible vintage, and some antique. I believe in honouring the crafts of times past and love the feeling of history and untold stories that echoes in a piece. All of my pieces are handmade by me, they are unique and made to last.
Cost will vary depending on design and materials and hours put into the process of creation, a bra will usually ranges between €150 to €240 if I can use the material I already have at hand for your bra, but can go higher if I need to make additional purchases to be able to complete the look you want. A full costume set with bra, belt and hair adornment or headdress start at €350.
Once we have decided on a style and the design idea regarding colours and embellishments, you will make an initial deposit of €80 to get the process started. You will be involved during the design process. I will share the progress with you and ask you for feedback when needed. Once your piece is done, it will be listed as a bespoke creation reserved in your name on my online Etsy store, where you will make the final payment of the piece including the shipping cost, before it will be sent to you. Normal shipping time within Europe is a week, for the rest of the world you should estimate a shipping time of between 5-15 business days.
Bespoke bras or belts take between 2-6 weeks to make, and 4-10 weeks for a whole costume depending on current orders and availability of the right fabrics and embellishments for your pieces. It is always a good idea to contact me before placing an order if you need your piece to be done in time for a specific show.
