Getting Our Start

I first learned to sew from home ec class in middle school and I never stopped. This evolved into a love of creating costumes and cosplay. I got my start creating handmade, upcycled apparel in 2011 and began selling at festivals and conventions. I expanded to online sales and other kinds of conventions as the years have progressed.

Recycling has been a lifelong passion, so it was a natural fit to begin making clothing from unloved materials. My main supply for materials are local thrift stores. I select items based on color, material, and pattern. Most of my purchases are pieces of clothing that would otherwise not find a home and would be discarded, only adding to our growing landfill issues. Taking unwanted items and turning them into wearable art that will definitely be loved and treasured again is so important to my sense of self.
