Costume Crazed!

Welcome . . . if you are here it is probably because you need to make some sort of costume . . . I have spent plenty of time on the internet myself trying to figure out how to make a certain costume (non-scary Beast mask for “Beauty & the Beast”?????)

I don’t claim to be an expert.  I don’t claim to have the best ideas, I don’t even claim to be that creative sometimes. . . but . . . .  not finding tutorials or ideas for some of the things I have needed to create, I thought I would start sharing some of what I have done.

I will say at the start that 1) the costumes I make are not historically accurate in technique, fabrics or design  2)  you will not be able to “recreate” them exactly because most of what I do is upcycling garments I find at local Thrift Stores 3) I would love feedback and a conversation on ideas and techniques.

I hope you find something useful and I’d love to hear your ideas, successes and problems!
