Costume Production

Future Man Season 2 Gallery

As a member of Motion Picture Costumers, Local 705, in the Women's Custom-Made/Specialty Costumer category, I pattern, build, and alter costumes for television and film. 

 

Often, these costumes are for people, but my actors have included cats, dogs and puppets.

I crafted many of the costumes for Future Man Season 2. I built the patchwork cape for Wolf along with his standard military style vest and pants that were covered with recycled pockets. We built over one hundred futuristic body suits with solar vests and a fleet of burlap sack smocks. 

 

I made the Hedgehog, Tammy Turtle, and the Worm for Mascots. I also made a Pokemon style costume for Shaquille O'Neal for the Maroon 5 video, Don't Wanna Know.

 

I worked on the fourth season of Arrested Development and one of the challenges was re-creating the clothes for Lucille (Jessica Walters) and Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) that they had worn seven years before in the final episode of season three. I built three versions of The Thing costume (with fellow costumer Robyn Simms) which was worn by Tobias Funke (David Cross).

 

A large part of my job is making things that already look good, look even better by fitting, tailoring, and altering the wardrobe. I handled all the costume alterations for Season 1 of Dead To Me (Netflix). I spent Seasons 3-5 on Switched At Birth fitting and altering costumes for the entire cast.

 

When working at Jimmy Kimmel Live!  I get to use my full range of skills by patterning and making costumes start to finish. It's not just a sewing job when you work on a variety show. We craft with heavy tools and hot glue. I was on the four person crew that made Jimmy's "Suit of the Loom" out of tiny rubber bands! 

 

My theater background is specific to pattern making and historical costumes and I am always excited to work on a period show.
