Personal Bio

I'm the Elven Seamstress! I'm currently working on building up my own costume business from scratch, as I graduated from my Costume Production degree last year, and I can't very well carry on working at McDonalds for the rest of my life...

I'm a Live Action Roleplayer, and most of the costumes I make are either for my own character at LARP, my dear beloved's character, or are paid commissions from other LARPers who go to the same system. This is part of the reason I haven't done that much cosplay- it's not that I don't have time to make costumes, I just rarely have the time to make costumes for any other purpose than LARP! However, that does mean most of the costumes I make are immensely practical, as they're designed to be worn whilst tramping through woods beating up similarly-dressed people with foam latex weapons...

This also meant that my first ever cosplay was deliciously impractical!

Cosplay Bio

Well, I've always been interested in costume in general, I just never really got around to cosplaying! Then one of my best friends invited me to the Grand International Cosplay Ball last year, and well, I leaped at the chance.

I decided to make Sarah Williams' ballgown from the film Labyrinth- it just seemed the obvious choice for my first- I adore the film, and I have this big thing about sparkle- oh, and I practically AM the character, we even have the same name! I love the dress, and I'm so pleased with it. It's not exactly like it was in the film, but it's pretty darn close...
