My Story

bags Are you frustrated by all the BORING options for bags out there?

Tired of boring bags!

Not more beige!

I mean, a person can only take so many floral patterns, paisleys, brown faux leather, and black vinyl before giving up the search for a bag that expresses your individuality, fits your needs, and is really well made.

Is that too much to ask for?

Actually, no. It’s not.

Say Goodbye to Boring . . .

If you’re tired of settling for the boring, factory made bags on the market, if you’re looking for unique, quality, USA handmade accessories that celebrate your special style and your favorite fandom while actually fitting all your needs, then you’ve found the right place.

It’s The Costume Wrangler’s Closet.


That’s me with The Costume Wrangler’s Closet at my FIRST con!

. . . And Hello to Awesome!

I hand make excellent, durable accessories inspired by a variety of fandoms for people just like you, people who want a bag that’s fun and functional, a stylish bag that expresses your individuality and shares your interests with the world.

Why Stop At Bags?

I don’t just make bags. With my background in costume design and technology, I can build just about anything out of fabric. I can even design just about anything too.

That’s why I started The Costume Wrangler’s Closet. I love making things, and I love being a geek. Plus, I was tired of never being able to find that perfect accessory, something that was well made, that did all the things I wanted (like carry all my stuff at conventions), looked cool, and reflected something I enjoyed. I was even more tired of never being able to find the cool cosplay and clothes I wanted in my size! That’s why I create custom pieces for folks like you. Whether it’s a simple headband or a complex costume, I love designing and creating pieces for people of all shapes and sizes.  If people come in all shapes and sizes, so should awesome.


What I’m About:

In The Costume Wrangler’s Closet, you’ll find a variety of fun and functional accessories, many featuring my own original fabric designs that I get custom printed with an American company.  Actually, I source all my materials from the USA, I buy locally whenever possible, and whenever I can I use sustainable practices like upcycling t-shirts and jeans. You’re going to find really fantastic quality, eco-conscious, and excellent handmade products in The Costume Wrangler’s Closet.  But don’t take my word for it. Read a few of my customer reviews
