Bringing characters to life with custom made costumes
Creative Beasts came from a love of crafting, cosplay and designing my own characters. Original characters are a lot of fun to act as, but obviously if your character is unique or complex it can be difficult to get a costume.
Over the past two years I have been custom making costumes of original characters for people, made several large unique toys, over 100 accessories and had stalls at various conventions. I plan on growing Creative Beasts and expanding the amount of commissions I take each year, while improving my skills as a designer and crafter.
Anyone who is a child at heart, enjoys acting, creative character design and of course, big fluffy animal costumes!
Costumes of a character, especially ones with a mask, can greatly help those with social difficulties as it creates an escape from reality. It will help others and also help me to advance my career and skills in costume design and crafting.
Funding for more equipment and advertising, a wider reach among potential customers and a few good connections would do wonders to boost this project.
If this project gets funding, it will be used to purchase more equipment and make a better work space. In the future, Creative Beasts could expand to teach this craft to others and even offer employment.
