makin' moves

Cabin life has been so good to us.
I'm feeling a little nostalgic about leaving this wonderful place, but I'm ready for what's to come.
In memory of our lovely home and the surrounding environment, I was fortunate enough to do a Virginia inspired shoot with the insanely talented duo Jason and Tammy Keefer.
It was truly a dream to be able to utilize the landscape around our cabin and create magical photos that really emphasize the inspiration behind M.L.N.W.
All of the clothing was designed, constructed, and styled by Me (except Clint's...that's coming later ;-)
Tammy and Jason shot on 35mm Film and Polaroid, which was very exciting (i adore film!!!!).
I feel so lucky to have had the chance to work with them before we left.

Here's a sneak peak of what's to come...and be sure to check out Jay & Tammy's site for links to their blogs, cool things they like, and more wonderful photos by them.

Glinda the Good


About a month ago I was commissioned to create a "Glinda the Good Witch" costume for Ms. Jackie B. of the Black Box Players, for their annual "Wizard of Oz" production.
It took almost 50 yards of tulle, lots of patience, passion, and a steady sequin hand to construct this piece.
I designed the back as a lace up corset so it can fit different "Glinda's" of varying sizes, and the crown (my favorite part) was cut from lightweight plastic sheets then covered with fabric, beads, pearls and sequins to help it sparkle beautifully under stage lights.
All of my work concluded this afternoon during the productions dress rehearsal held at the Burnley Moran Auditorium. My stage shots aren't the best, but we got some nice detail shots behind the scenes. I'm a little sad to see the end of this project, but proud and satisfied with the reactions and work that I put into it. Thank you Ms. B for finding me, then trusting and believing in my vision for this costume.
The "Wizard of Oz" opens Friday May 7th at 7pm and tickets can be found at

What's Next!?

i will forever remember this project through the sequins i find in random places throughout our house ;-)

what's reality anyway?

Costumes are as important as the people in them.
Here are a few that inspire me to do what i do.

Blade Runner

Meet Me In St. Louis

Gone with the wind


Star Wars

this isn't a costume, but YSL from 1965 is notable for sure.
