(Sorry, not looking for any TFP or rental work right now, thank you for the interest though! This profile is almost just a place holder at this point)
Hi MMers! I'm a costume and clothing designer available for wardrobe styling and custom work and also the designer and one of the sewers for Artifice Clothing. Preference for fantasy, science fiction related themes, and anything truly bizarre and eye catching. My specialty is working with PVC/Vinyl and our team is very experienced with custom designs for photoshoots and have a quick turn around time for production if needed.
Please don't e-mail through this site if its a purchase question, sorry no one really checks here often. You can contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org, this account is just for photoshoots :-) that I personally set up.
If you want to see what we're up to you can check out the website's updates page, I don't get a lot of time to update this site and I will mainly be available for photoshoots with people I've worked with before.
I apologize if I don't get a chance to read and return emails or if the answer is brief, purchase inquiries should go through the website or to email@example.com . I really really appreciate all the emails and interest and I'm sorry but the answer is probably going to be no even if I do actually want to work with you. But just because I don't have time to make you free clothing or style your shoot doesn't mean I don't think you are awesome :-). I barely have time to do a 20th of all the photoshoots I want to and having to say no sucks but there's only so many hours in the week and paid website orders always come first.

A good TFP photoshoot with a stunning model, creative and technically skilled photographer and a great hair and makeup team is worth more to me than 10 paid photoshoots where I have no interest in the project. So no rentals sorry. I have such little free time outside of our regular work that I'd rather only do photoshoots that I am excited about (and that I know I'll actually get images from in a timely fashion).
If you'd like to work together the images will be featured on ArtificeClothing.com (with full credits) and we will also require the ability to choose a few basic shots to show off the piece aside from of course the artistic ones (usually I need a total of 4-6 images total per look with a decent back shot). I have absolutely no problem paying for photgraphic editing since your time is as valuable as mine and we've always got a budget for photoshoots. There is also no problem paying for makeup or model fees or covering purchases for props that will help the project. We sell the samples afterwards to make back the cost of the shoot and if its a good project its always evens out in the end :-).
There are so SO many people on my friends list right now I would love to work with if time and location weren't an issue.
I have worked with a lot of fantastic people, kind of too many to keep here on MM. Thanks for reading my tirade! Also if you are looking to work with any of the people on my top list I HIGHLY recommend paying them since although making art is awesome it doesn't seem to be accepted as currency ;-). For many of them this is their full time job and they are all professionals and deserve to make money off their creations (and you will be very satisfied with the results).
