Announcement    IT'S 2022 HALLOWEEN SEASON! ORDER EARLY TO AVOID ACCOMMODATION FEES!! I AM NOW BOOKED THROUGH HALLOWEEN. IF YOU HAVE NOT PLACED AN ORDER BY AUGUST 20, ACCOMMODATION FEES WILL BE IN PLACE IN ORDER TO SECURE HALLOWEEN ORDERS.

FIRST, please let me apologize for price increases. My main fabric stores have increased their prices by 30% per yard, and Etsy has increased their fees to 6.5%.
I am being squeezed at both ends and am trying to still make a profit!

Please note that I have been contracted with a theater from their 2022-2023 season, so please order costumes early as I will be busier than usual. Also, please place your Halloween costume order or request EARLY to avoid accommodation fees. I am already sewing Halloween costumes for 2022 to early customers!

Please note that I LOVE custom requests. All costumes are designed by me alone -- I can change any of the fabric color or trim to suit your preference, just ask! I also sew very quickly, so let me know if you need a rush order. For an immediate response, please text me @ 408.493.3422.

Live. Love. Do.

My husband bought me a sewing machine one year for Mother's Day -- the least expensive WalMart special he could find. He always knew I wanted to start sewing, but also knew that I didn't want to invest too much money in my venture until I knew I really had the time to pursue it fully.

The sewing machine sat in the box for a year or two before I had the courage to open it. It was going to be my first daughter's second Halloween, and I was determined to sew her a custom costume -- Boo, from Monster's Inc.

With no sewing knowledge at all (literally), I read the directions on how to work the sewing machine, purchased fabric (way too much), and busted out a Boo costume. I received so many compliments that year, I thought, ok, I must be decent at this sewing thing.

After, I followed sewing blogs, watched YouTube videos, and read everything I could on sewing (without still taking a single class). I started taking "custom orders" for the next Halloween, and basically faked it until I made it. I forced myself to think outside the box, and to complete each costume.

Since then, I've sewn over 3,500+ costumes!

It's an amazing venture, and I love every minute of it!

Hi! My name is Nicole, and I'm a full-time wife and mother, and after having my third baby, I hung up my RDH license, and devoted my life (during naps and after bedtime only) to designing and sewing costumes. Creativity runs in my blood, and after 30+ years, I am finally devoting the time to realize my own artistic talent (and having so much fun in the process!).
