Humble Beginnings to Big Things

Fogg Couture started after I graduated college. I really didn't know what I was going to do with myself. I went to school for education and graduated with a bachelors in secondary education in social studies and minors in history and religious studies. After my student teaching experience I became very disillusioned with all the politics and sexism that sometimes goes along with teaching and I wanted to find something that actually made me happy.
I grew up Old West re-enacting with my mother (image gunfighters and prostitutes, at least they were the fun ones) and watching scifi and mystery shows with my father. It really seemed like I was just met for Steampunk.
I was first introduced to Steampunk through a show called The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne and became obsessed with anything Verne. I loved the style, thought not always historically accurate, which seemed to make me like it more. I put aside my Neo-Victorian interests to focus on school. When I started dating my now husband we got back into Steampunk and started looking into the community more (which there isn't a lot here). I was also still in school so I didn't look to much until I got out.
After student teaching, I started designing, bought a domain name, discovered that I have iWeb on my Mac, and started searching Hobby Lobby and the Arc for finds. Friends started donating fabrics for me to play with so I could start relearning my sewing skills. (I learned sewing in 4-H and it had been awhile.)
I started looking more into the facebook Steampunk communities in the area and discovered a woman calling for designers for a fashion show she was doing. Her name is Karen Holloway and we are still good friends (her and her partner Sue are aunts to Little Black). I have been doing fashion shows and photo shoots with her 3 years now.
I have also in the last year started the League of Fogg. It's composed of myself and my favorite models who all became rather close. We are still figuring out what we are still but we usually describe ourselves as a Steampunk pin up group. We came out with a calendar for 2014 and were also featured in Ladies of Steampunk (November 2013).

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Most items are none refundable. However, I want to make sure that you are as happy as possible so please contact me and I will work with you the best I can.

In most cases there will be a 20% restocking fee.

I will not accept something back that has been worn or smells like cigarette smoke since that makes it hard to resale.
I work through PayPal for connivence for everyone!

I will not ship something out until everything is paid in full.

If you decide to cancel your order let me know as soon as possible. I am willing to work with you. I expect to be reimbursed for anything prior to the cancellation (i.e., buying packing materials, boxes, etc).
I ship through USPS. I ship standard mail which takes up to 7 business days sometimes. If you live outside of the Unites States I will have to bill you separately for shipping.

If you would like to ship something different from this, let me know. I have no problem working with you. However, it will be at your expense.

I put standard insurance on packages but if an outfit is particularly expensive or if the buyer requests I can put more insurance on it at the buyer's expense.
