Baby Faces , Skulls and Fairies

I love our customers. They are some of the most creative and unusual folks in the world. We just finished a pair of crowns for two women going to a Haunters Convention. They had this very original idea for a set of characters - twin ghost sisters of the 17th century that cannibalized all of [...]

Green Woman Vest

We've been working on a custom Greenwoman vest, based on the Greenman tail coat that Paul made about 6 years ago for Burning Man 2007. Our customer, Emily, is a LARPer from the UK. We've developed many new techniques since 2007 and Paul was able to create the new version with many refinements. He made [...]
