The fabric of the dress was airbrushed to get the green ombre and lace appliques were placed on the bust and the hem of the skirt. Quite a few faux flowers were sewn on the cape for an extra springy look. Very excited to show this off in person at WonderCon this year!
All this fabric was hand dyed, stitched, and painted to get all the effects you see here. I started with white linen and spandex and went bananas from there.
This dress traveled to Paris to visit the Eiffel Tower!
We based this gown on a Japanese doll
The is the most intricate gown in my gallery so far! The bodice is a faux leather with a crocodile skin pattern stamped on. It is encrusted in pearls and rhinestones.
Almost a hundred layers of different fabrics swirl down the skirt all accented with hundreds of pearls and rhinestone detail.
Handmade silk roses detail this silk and tulle party dress inspired by a hat from a client!
A lighter version of the Snow Queen. A previous client loved hers so much, she opted to get a second!
Patches and hand painted fabrics help create this ragdoll effect. Custom gloves made by Alex of Otherworldly Creations.
My dear friend wanted to cosplay as the 11th Doctor but in a genderbent style. I created a flowing purple coat and black circle skirt that spin incredibly together. In lieu of a vest, I opted to make a lavender silk corset that has decorative silver buttons. I added a micro pocket watch and a key -- We also had to change the locks on the Tardis so now the key is cute!
I love this gown! I put it together using pieces from previous costumes and leftover fabric. It was incredibly fun creating something completely original with the challenge of not spending any money!
This is the deluxe version of the Snow Queen costume, complete with lights for extra magic!
Another version of the now Queen, this client asked for darker colors throughout than I had used in other costumes and the lace we found reminded us of snowflakes!
This client didn't want the cape to drag on the floor so I designed it to be extra flowy while she moved in it.
This is an Atlantis Princess outfit with an optional modesty corset!
Inspired by Boo from Monsters Inc, this is an outfit created for Dapper Day at Disneyland.
I truly love Grecian inspired dresses, and this dress was no exception.
I've become obsessed with Megara the past couple days while I fell back in love with the movie Hercules an worked on this costume.
I layered different two-tone chiffon fabrics for an almost ombré effect. I decorated metal filigree with large gemstones for the medals on the dress. The neckline is decorated with tiny rhinestones for a subtle rich effect.
This client was from Colorado and liked the idea of a 'darker' Tinkerbell that was more suited for a cold Winter.
The second of the two Rainforest fairy costumes I made.
I was dying to make this costume look like the fairy had created it from things she found around the forest!
Make it Pink! Delicate Lace creates the collar for a truly royal look.
This was a personal project. I've always wanted to be Wendy, but never liked any dress I've ever seem of hers. I wanted it to be ethereal and look like it was ready to take off into flight.
This was created for a client who is a huge Game of Thrones fan who wanted dragon elements added to the dress. I added golden scales to the belt and dragon wing like shoulder pieces.
I loved the giant feather and gorgeous lace I used for this traveling outfit!
The client for this Snow White gown wanted something a little less "glittery" than my last version, but still wanted an elegant look. I used solid fabrics, mostly velvet and charmeuse, and tied it all together with a beautiful lace.
This is was commission for a girl for her character performing. I wanted to create the icon day dress but still put my spin on it. I choose to adorn the corset with sea details. Pearls, bubble beads, seashells all surround a delicate seahorse charm.
Miley wanted a Vidia (from the new Tinkerbell movies) costume for this Halloween. I loved that Vidia's costume looked like a Galaxy Plant, so I went with that theme.
When I heard that Frozen was going to have a panel at D23 2013 I jumped at the chance to create costumes based on the main characters.
I made my Elsa costume from fabrics that made me think of ice and snowflakes.
I made the Anna costume from rich velvets and suede with hand painted appliques.
I met several animators from Frozen, and they all let me know that they thought my dress was the best they had seen. Yay!

I was commissioned to make the dress that Annette Funicello wore as Mary Contrary in Babes in Toyland. I took my favorite elements of the dress and added a few details of my own!
This is an original piece inspired by Woodland Nymphs and Fairies. I named her Ivy because of all the Ivy detailing. Very original, I know :)
This is a costume inspired by Jasmine from Disney's Aladdin!
In creating this Jasmine costume I was asked how we could make it a bit more modest. I created an underbust corset that can be added if needed or wanted!
