Underwater, in Space

Hello! I'm Tess Aquarium. I'm a costume designer, fabricator, textiles hacker and teacher based out of San Francisco. This little corner of etsy is my way to share some of my creative, funky costumes with YOU in little bit sized morsels.

A lot of my creations are custom or one of a kind but I still want to make something for everyone (and hug all the cats) so my little accessories are the perfect way to give you something one of a kind!

Domestic: Any item under 13 oz is shipping first class to save you on shipping. Anything over will be shipped priority. Shipping prices on items will reflect this. If you would like a small item shipped Priority mail just ask!

International: If you don't see "Everywhere Else" listed as a shipping choice it means it's a heavier item and I'll need to do a cost breakdown individually by country. Just ask!

ONCE YOUR ITEM HAS LEFT MY HANDS I CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES IN TRANSIT! My items are durable and I package them well. Up until this point I have never had a problem. If you are nervous just ask for insurance, I will happily let you purchase this.

Clothing: I take on a limited amount of custom orders. If you think my style vibes with what you are looking for shoot me a message. I specialize in fur, spandex, unusual fibers, burning man gear and circus stuff.

Accessories: See something you like but want different colors? This is doable, just let me know what you like and what you are looking for.
