Zombie Unicorn Apocalypse!

The Captain America Corset Lives Again!

Check out the new and improved Captain America Corset Several weeks ago, while loading out at a convention, my original Captain America Corset was stolen out of my car.  I didn’t write about the incident at the time because I was so upset and angry there was no way I could put my thoughts and […]

Wonder Woman Pirate Costume Renderings

What if Wonder Woman was a Pirate?

My Wonder Woman Pirate Cosplay Idea With her impending movie debut, Wonder Woman cosplay is becoming increasingly popular. Personally, I admire and appreciate Linda Carter and the feminist icon that is Wonder Woman, but I’ve never been a big fan of the character. In fact, I didn’t really care for the Amazon warrior princess until the […]

Henry V: All Female Cast

At Nebraska Wesleyan University, we did two versions of Shakespeare’s history play, Henry V. One cast was “traditional” while the other was comprised of all women.  The show was set in the far off future, and it the effect offered an interesting perspective on a classic history play. Take a look at the production photos below.

Wrangling With Fabric Design

I love playing with fabric.  So I thought I’d share a super quick tutorial on how you can design your own fabric using a cotton bandana and fabric markers. What You’ll Need 100% Cotton Bandana Why cotton, you ask?  Well, natural fibers are the easiest to work with when playing with fabric dyes and paints. […]

One show was cast traditionally, and done with more “traditional” medieval style costuming.  Take a look at the production photos below. Can’t see the slideshows?

Sweeney Todd with a slight Steampunk Flaire

When I designed costumes for Sweeney Todd, the director wanted an industrial and Victorian feel.  I immediately thought of steampunk.  In hindsight, I wished I had pushed the steampunk design elements further with the show, made them bigger and bolder for our big stage.  But the details where loads of fun to create, and the […]
