About

"Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story." - Mason Cooley.

Really, I started with the idea of making a Blog. I wanted to chronicle the costumes I make every year for Halloween. I got slightly derailed on the blog however (it simply wasn't drawing in any revenue, and it was costing me a chunk of change) - but before I took the blog down, I'd made a costume for a tiny monkey by the name of Timmy. He's the Think Geek Mascot.

This year (2012), I made Timmy an Assassin's Creed 3 Costume, and during the podcast for his unboxing - I was inaccurately quoted as having an Etsy shop. At the time of the video, I didn't... but it got me thinking about it.

Why didn't I have a shop? A lot of people seem to like my stuff, and I have a good time making it. Not to mention, I have a ton of materials in the house to make all sorts of things.

Emboldened by the idea (and by the glowing reception of Timmy's Costume) I decided to go forward with the Shop.

And here we are!

I'm still fishing for what will sell nicely here, and I'm looking to make some pricier items. Keep an eye on the shop - you never know what I might toss together next!

Thanks for checking out my page! A Story in Cloth was started when I started making tiny costumes for Timmy the Think Geek Monkey. I like making jewelry and costumes out of unconventional items, and generally, that's what you'll find in my shop. Guitar Picks are among my favorite items, but I'll generally work with anything I can find. Enjoy shopping! And do feel free to let me know if you have any custom work you'd like done!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Generally I'll request payment before shipping, and I'll always try to ship things within a day or two of receiving the order. You can cancel at any time for a full refund, as long as the item hasn't been mailed yet.
Shipping
I will generally always ship things via USPS Flat Rate, unless doing it at their standard rates happens to be cheapest. My goal is to get it to you as quickly and safely as possible, while staying under the price I listed at shipping - so I will explore my options while at the Post Office.

If you require anything be shipped faster, please message me before you make the purchase, I'll see what the prices for faster shipping are, and change the shipping cost accordingly before you buy.

I've done plenty of shipping overseas before the shop, and have had no issues with customs or overseas shipping - so please don't hesitate to ask about shipping to any country.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you receive an item, and would like to return it - please message me privately. Of course, I always hope that my buyers are happy with what they receive - but if you happen to not be, I'd like the chance to make it right!

If any item is lost or damaged, no matter when it happens - please do feel free to send me a message, and I'm happy to tell you what it would cost to make you a replacement set. Generally, if all the pieces are still in tact, I don't mind repairing items for free.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders welcome! Please - I LOVE doing custom work. Even if you don't see anything else like it on my site, send me a message, and let me see what I can do for you.

** While I only have Doll Costumes up on the site, I can make their person-sized equivalents. My preference is to have the wearer of the costume live close by, so we can tailor the costume to their measurements - but barring that, I've done pretty well with sizing, even from afar.

Likewise, I don't mind repairing items that I didn't initially make. Let me know what you have, and let me see what I can do. Figure on a guess that I'll charge you for any materials I may need, and I charge $10 an hour for custom repair work - minimum 30 minutes.

I currently don't make any guarantees. While everything I make is made of pretty sturdy stuff, most of my items are meant to be costume items - so, try to keep the items out of moist environments (like bathrooms) and be careful when wearing the items (I recommend against brushing your hair while guitar pick earrings are in, that can hurt.)
