Hello! My name is Caitlin. I am a maker.
I specialize in niche fashion, creating custom sized one-of-a-kind pieces incorporating unusual materials and cutting edge technology whenever possible. These details bring beloved 2D characters to life and makes every look special.
My time creating costumes as well as ready to wear clothing has lead to developing a very eclectic skill set:
Draping, Pattern-making, Tailoring
Dyeing, Distressing, Screen-Printing
Corsetry, Spandex, Leather
Digital Embroidery & Fabric Printing
Foam, Thermoplastic & Resin
Lasercut design, LEDs & Wearable Tech
Bodypaint, Make-Up, Wig Styling
Adobe CC, Inkscape, Final Cut Pro
Over the years my background in hospitality has given me a wide variety of transferable skills. It has enhanced my eye for attention to detail, proven the importance of anticipating the needs of others, and provided experience in customer service that proved to be useful while self-employed as a costume commsissioner.
The five-diamond standards I became accustomed to providing have become part of who I am. I've gained experience working with teams at a variety of properties, including the Wild Dunes Resort, The Inn at Biltmore Estate, M'Couls Public House, and the Proximity Hotel. At the Proximity, I worked as the Manager on Duty for several years, giving me invalauable leadership experience with a diverse group of people.
