About

The Worst Superhero Origin Story EVER!

The honest truth, mine is a pretty unglamorous story with a glittering ending. Let me start at the start...

Sewing and crafting are kinda my default settings, I'm the person who ignores your interesting story at dinner because I'm busy folding birds and/or roses from the napkins. My mother bought a sewing machine with green shield stamps when I was a small child. She never managed to learn how to use it, but I seemed to know how instinctively. I STILL have that very same machine and use it for all my work.

There are only two things in life that have ever come naturally to me, sewing and singing. So fast forward many years, of mostly making my own clothes and the odd wedding dress here and there. Through an accident of fate I ended up embarking on a career as a burlesque and cabaret performer. When I was first starting out I just couldn't afford the beautiful costume pieces that I envisioned or the pieces I imagined just didn't exist at all. So I realised if I wanted my acts on stage to look how they did in my head then I would need to make everything myself.

So I started making all my own costumes and props. Conversations backstage with other performers led to 'oh I've been looking for X, Y or Z, I wonder if you could make it for me' and always the kind to embrace a challenge, I did. From there I began getting orders from non-performers who wanted something OTT for a special occasions. After a friend asked me to run a stall selling my wares at an event she was organising I found myself with 'stock' for the first time ever, and well that's how the Etsy shop was born.

So essentially my story is one of necessity and accident, the finest combination of artistic motivation! I love Etsy because it allows me to reach a world wide audience with my creations. Gives me such a thrill to see my items bringing sparkly goodness to the farthest corners of the globe!
