Wicked & Wonder Shop—A mother and daughter inspiration!

My name is Lane and I am the ‘chief’ proprietor—designer, seamstress, artisan, photographer-- and more at Wicked & Wonder, yet it is my daughter, Luxe ,who is its muse—its inspiration, art director and guiding force!

While I had been doing art since I was 9 and then took fashion and design courses in college, it was not until, Luxe was born that suddenly my passion to create took on an almost frenzy. Slowly I began making wild and crazy contraptions for my kids to wear. It began with an itsy bitsy magical pumpkin costume for Luxe’s first Halloween that lit up from within using wired LEDS, and slowly as Luxe got older it is she who began to drive the creative concepts and telling mom what she wanted to make or WHO.

Wicked & Wonder Shop—A mother and daughter inspiration!

My name is Lane and I am the ‘chief’ proprietor—designer, seamstress, artisan, photographer-- and more at Wicked & Wonder, yet it is my daughter, Luxe ,who is its muse—its inspiration, art director and guiding force!

While I had been doing art since I was 9 and then took fashion and design courses in college, it was not until, Luxe was born that suddenly my passion to create took on an almost frenzy. Slowly I began making wild and crazy contraptions for my kids to wear. It began with an itsy bitsy magical pumpkin costume for Luxe’s first Halloween that lit up from within using wired LEDS, and slowly as Luxe got older it is she who began to drive the creative concepts and telling mom what she wanted to make or WHO. Eventually it evolved over time to include her little brothers in the hijinks and the whole family. (If she was going to be Alice for Halloween then surely her baby brother would make the MOST adorable Cheshire cat! ;) Soon people started asking us where we got ‘that costume’ or how we made ‘that prop’ so I started photographing our designs, put up an Etsy shop…and Wicked & Wonder was born.

NOW i have over 25 YEARS of sewing, pattern drafting, and tailoring experience and my daughter, Luxe, is now well past 9 years old, but that hasn’t slowed us down. In fact our ‘work’ has just grown more passionate and more intense. Today we decide what we will wire, light up, or forge.. tomorrow we build a framework to support a pair of wings or maybe the biggest skirt that has ever been made. It doesn’t matter... we love it! We love the stories that we tell … the journey of creation, and the production of beautiful fantastical work that makes us smile and fulfills peoples fantasies!


Our work -- “Beauty” is in the details

Wicked & Wonder creations tend to be a hybrid of the technical and highly functional fused with just a touch of sparkle and magic and simple-- even --minimalist aesthetic and lines. We like hardware and wire, metals and plastic, equally as well as ribbon and eyelet, silk dupioni and tulle. We love tinkering and experimenting and especially love what happens when we put these seemingly opposing if not complementary materials & media together into wondrous creations for children and those young at heart.

We also have a love of and an inclination towards the magical and fantastic, with a special penchant for the holidays and Halloween. We love costuming, cosplay and fabrication, and there is no greater thrill than making something real that we only imagined in our minds or saw in popular culture.

Our costumes, props and accessories are made with high-quality materials—fabric, thread, findings, embellishments-- and with high attention to detail! We work hard to make each piece something that is hip, creative, fashion forward –maybe even astonishing --and yet also durable and lasting.

Wicked & Wonder is our homage to all things ‘deliciously’ dark and wicked as well as the innocence, purity and wonders of childhood. Here you will find those 'evil queens,' wicked witches, and dark dragons right next to dashing princes, pixie fairies, and powerful heroines.

We hope you like our shop and begin weaving your own stories and dreams!
