These were super fluffy, super easily adjustable, they took a bit long to send but the shop owner was quick to get back with me and I'm overall very satisfied.

About

Daily Magic and Whimsy

Everyone has that favorite item, that item that when you put it on transforms you; makes you feel magical, mysterious, flirty, exciting, rebellious, or whatever you are secretly dying to be. Gimme Paws is my way to create items that can bring that daily magic and whimsy into my customers lives.

Fascinated and enthralled with creating whimsical and unique designs, Gimme Paws was born out of creative frustration and career impatience. I have always had a dream of owning, operating and designing for my own business. Being involved in every step of the process, succeeding on my own, and feeling pride in the happiness of my customers. I always thought it was a dream that I would have to keep on the back burner till years down the road. But my need to be free to design pieces that inspire me and create with my hands was too strong to ignore, so on New Years Eve, as 2011 became 2012, I made the decision to make that dream come true not matter how scary it felt and so GimmePaws was born!

I adore fanciful accessories, pieces that can transform a pedestrian outfit into a dramatic statement ensemble. I am inspired by Isabella Blow, Jim Henson, Alexander McQueen, Edward Gorey, musicals of the 40s and 50s, and anyone who has the courage to stand out in a crowd. I like to explore the transformative nature of clothing and am inspired by subcultures that develop specific visual statements. I am beginning my Gimme Paws journey by focusing on animal inspired accessories. These pieces were born from the cosplay, furry, burning man, and dance communities. Fun and furry pieces that can be incorporated into a costume or worn out on the town, as well as, being appreciated by all ages.

Each piece is hand crafted by me at my home studio in sunny Los Angeles. Only quality materials are used; super plush faux furs, soft anti-pill fleece, cuddly poly-fil and any unique materials needed to complete a custom design. Using my knowledge of sewing, costume construction, jewelry making, millinery, puppetry and more I give each piece the love and attention they deserve.

I have so many ideas and creations for the future of Gimme Paws, I can't wait to share. I am planning to expand to include jewelry (my first love), handbags, millinery, prints and original artwork! SO STAY TUNED <3
