About

Once upon a time...

My love for fabrics and fashion started early. I was never really a fashion follower, but more of an inventor. It got me into a lot of trouble sometimes, but I kept on going and sticked with it. I did find out that it was not just the clothes that interested me, I liked working with my hands. Making images in my mind work.

I never fitted in art academy or fashion academy (did both) and, as my teacher advised me, just went for it. With no real budget to launch my own label from, I got lost and dependable on steady jobs on payroll. I did make the occasional costume for going out and LARP, but not as many as I wanted to.

In 2010 I got the opportunity to start my own company and do what I always wanted to do. It was a though road (and sometimes still is) but I really got my satisfaction in setting up a workshop and design and sew all day.

With more than 15 years of larping, I always design with 'is it practical?'. I usually make costumes that can take a beating and doesn't limit your movement. I also keep the 'is it comfortable?' in mind. It shouldn't hurt anywhere and if you want to wear it for a few days, it shouldn't be a struggle.

I'm active on instagram and facebook (both @samallacostumes). I'm not into the popularity contest on social media, because I believe it is lost energy for my creativity.

Sustainability: Eco Info and Fair Trade

I'll add ❧ Eco Info if there is a material in the item that has environmental friendly and sustainable properties.

- Biological / Eco Friendly: Environmental friendly materials, either in production and / or use.
- Saved from the Bin: These materials were on their way to be thrown away, while they are in lovely condition! Think B-choices and suppliers overstock.
- Recycled: Pre-used materials that I fixed and polished for another round. I find these in thrift-stores and vintage markets. These are usually embellishments.
- Fair Trade: no person in the process of this material has been unfairly treated (like slavery).
