Costumes

Since 2012, I've had the opportunity to be a part of Columbus' premiere Halloween event, Highball Halloween.  I have participated in the Costume Couture Contest, co-designing with Lauren Primm.  We placed 3 out of the 4 years we have participated and finally took the grand prize in 2017.  Since 2016 I have also contributed to the VIP tent decor with a  multiple looks that tie in with the White Castle sponsored themes made entirely out of White Castle packaging.  There are some earlier costumes I've made toward the bottom of the page.

Sinking Bride

This is the winning look Lauren Primm and I created for the 2017 Costume Couture Contest for Highball Halloween in Columbus, Ohio.  The concept was that of a Victorian bridal party that sank with the ship.

Short North Arch

Short North Arch

Created in 2017 for The Amazing Giants, the Short North Arch is made of PVC, hand-etched acrylic, and color changing LEDs.

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.

At least the wearer said it was comfortable and looked like he was having a great time.
