Costumes

For the past 4 years I've had the opportunity to be a part of Columbus' premiere Halloween event, Highball Halloween.  From 2012-2015 I participated in the Costume Couture Contest, co-designing with Lauren Primm, and placed 2 out of the 3 years.  This year I am contributing to the VIP tent decor with a  total of 4 looks that tie in with the White Castle sponsored "Haute Castle" theme made entirely out of White Castle packaging. Also, there's some older costumes I've made toward the bottom of the page.

Bespoke Pestilence

Bespoke Pestilence

A Black Plague inspired costume.  The shoulder pieces were meant to look insect-like so that it would reference the fleas that spread the plague.  Her hands were made black to reference how the victims' fingers would turn black and fall off.  The necklace is made from fake nails and the bones are made from pounded paper.

Carnival in Wonderland

Carnival in Wonderland

A sideshow concept that fused together Alice in Wonderland and a Carnival.  The target on the Queen's back spun to reveal blades that were thrown at the target.  Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum performed hand balancing acts and then transformed into the tent that the models walked out of.
