    About me

    I have 5 years’ experience of working in the theatre, film and television industries in a broad variety of roles including costume maker, dresser, and standby with responsibility for providing support, continuity and maintenance to principle and supporting artists.

    I'm well versed in designing and delivering a diverse and eclectic range of styles and period wear from Edwardian drama to science-fiction and from contemporary romance to medieval comedy. Her stage and screen skills also include the creation of historically accurate costumes, foundation wear and corsetry, and adapting garments and costumes for physically demanding performances such as ballet.

    I have acted as wardrobe supervisor and stylist for music videos in the rock and RnB genres.

    I am skilled in the specialisms of dyeing and breaking down fabrics and garments, wig dressing, millinery and shoemaking.

    Along with my experience in the TV, Film and theatre industries I have over 10 years’ experience designing bold and elaborate costumes for events within the “cosplay” and LARP (live action role-play) arenas, creating unique and inventive twists on famous fantasy and sci-fi characters as well as devising completely original characters from the wildest depths of her imagination

    Within my company 'Costume by Blue' my commissions open a gateway to a new universe of possibilities. Working with clients every step of the way, Blue can design and produce custom-made clothing for whatever project or event you require, whether it be for stage, screen or cosplay events.

    “Costume making and dressing is not just a job: it’s my life, my love and my passion, and I put that zest and energy into every costume I make and every set that I work on.”
