About Platyfly Studios

Platyfly Studios recently participated in RAW Natural Born Artists Indianapolis showcase! We strutted our stuff on the runway and showed off some new things that I've been working on behind the scenes. To check out all the nifty photos from this event, visit our Facebook page!

I have always loved making things with my hands. When I was seven years old, I started sewing for the first time. I now have over 20 years of experience creating clothing, accessories, jewelry, and various other crafts. This experience has in turn given me high standards for quality, and I strive to hold myself to those standards.

My formal education is in web and graphic design. Knowing how to play with shapes, color, spacing, and other design elements is a skill applicable to any creative medium, and that insight has served me well.

Platyfly Studios specializes in affordable handmade goods for the whimsical and mischievous. Mythpunks, cosplayers, reenactors, Pagans, and other fans of fantastical or quirky styles will find just what they are looking for. This store is also an ideal place for the gender nonconforming/nonbinary and transgender communities, whose members often have difficulty finding quality off-the-rack clothing that fits properly.

P.S. - What the heck is a "platyfly" anyway? A platyfly is, most simply, a platypus with butterfly wings. But more specifically, it comes from my personal affinity for the platypus, and my aunt's tendency to call me Butterfly. It is a reminder to dream big, because anything is possible.

Additional services:
- Custom corsets
- Made-to-order sewing, jewelry, and knit projects
- Wedding attire
- Gender nonconforming/nonbinary clothing
- Specialty custom work for transgender clients
