About me

Location East Coast, United States
Introduction After seeing the Opera of Leningrad's costumes when I was 9, and a visit to the Musee de la Mode et de la Costume when I was 10, I was hooked. My sewing and historical clothing education have been through reading alone. I have a busy full-time career that has nothing to do with costuming - historical costuming is my creative outlet.
Interests Costuming - imagine that!
Favorite Movies Star Wars 4-6 (the new movies should be wiped from the face of the earth...except maybe the costumes) Elizabeth, Dangerous Beauty, Marie Antoinette.
Favorite Music No one, including myself, seems to know...I just like listening to the radio.
Favorite Books Memoirs of a Geisha, Harry Potter, Queen Betsey the Vampire series Fred the Mermaid series The Tudor Tailor
