These aren’t all the costumes we’ve done — we’d run out of space pretty quickly if we posted everything! — but they’re some of our favorites. Costumes are sorted by series, then variant, then character.  Click on the series title to visit the full gallery, or click on individual costumes for details.

The Scarlet Pimpernel

So… Alena is a rabid Scarlet Pimpernel fangirl. By rabid, I mean she has read all 17 of the Scarlet Pimpernel books written by Baroness Orczy (and amassed quite a respectable collection of early editions of Orczy’s works), watched every extant film and television version, seen the Broadway musical so many times she’s lost count, has a laminated membership card…

Terra Cotta Warrior

Our first terra cotta infantryman was commissioned by the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis for the National Geographic Treasures of the Earth exhibit, a permanent wing which includes replicas and interactive displays of the terra cotta warriors from Xi’an, China.

White Christmas

When The Historic Artcraft Theatre showed the classic holiday musical White Christmas, Alena (a lifelong Danny Kaye fan) and Yaexrae enthusiastically replicated the dresses from the famous “Sisters” number and appeared onstage and in the lobby of the theatre for the event. The dresses were patterned from scratch (inspired by Edith Head’s original designs) and feature…

Rise of the Guardians

We saw RotG at the late show on opening night, and (possibly due to the fact that it was a 10PM showing the night before Thanksgiving) we had the entire theatre to ourselves… which meant that about 10 minutes into the movie, we were already arguing vocally over which of us got to cosplay which…
