About

I'm a lucky girl...

I found very early in life what I wanted to do.

Creaturre was born 15 years ago (in 1999). At first it was a Larp costume thing. After many years making elf, magician and noble knight outfits, I took this class named "Tribal dance" thinking is was some African tribal dance thingy... this was in 2007.

I went from heart attack to heart attack from there, discovering a world of beauty I didn't know could exist. It took me three years to literally "turn the boat" of Creaturre and I finally became a full time dance costumer in 2010.

I just love sitting with a dancer in the hopes of getting into their minds to figure out what they want from their costume and what is their reason for performing. I have finally found my purpose in the costume world, and I am forever grateful to be part of their shows.

Unlike many of my peers, I love to work with stretch fabrics. I had to buy two special sewing machines and do many tests to figure out the best method of working with it, but it ended up working out really well. I turned that to my advantage and created many little pieces that could be very adjustable because of their elasticity. It was perfect for business over the internet, as I mostly never see my customers in person.

Between orders, I try to create new items that won't eat the business of someone else and that can possibly fill a gap in an area where it's needed. I think of myself as someone very practical in my art. So I like to ask dancers: - What's missing? What is it you cannot find for your performance? And I build my collection based on trial and error.

It is also very important for me to offer custom sizes on everything I create. I feel it's very unfair to be "excluded" of very beautiful styles because your body is not the typical size or height.

    I'm a lucky girl. I love what I do and I do it well. I started sewing for others at 17 years old and by 19 I was making a living out of it. I am totally fascinated by costuming, and performers are my weapon of choice.
