Designed for Kids

When my 4 year old came home from school and said he needed a lion costume for his play, I thought how lovely it would be to have something original to wear. I set to work and came up with a costume that fit him perfectly, was beautifully made, and seemingly great for chasing his little brothers around!

Made for Parents

Whilst making the costume, it struck me that other parents might not have the time, equipment, or know-how to make a costume from scratch but might want to give their child a unique, handmade and high quality costume. And so the Handmade Costume Shop began.

My first costume order was for a Californian boy who wanted to dress up as a giant squid for Halloween! Seeing a photo of his face when the costume arrived was absolutely priceless; making kids smile is why I do what I do.

I love making original costumes, inspired by the kids who will actually be dressing up.   I offer a number of costumes off-the-peg, or if you want an extra special creation, get in touch and I can make something unique, just for your child.

I want to provide costumes that suit your needs and fit with your timescales, price range and imagination, so no request is too big or too small!
