Kristin Costa - Costume Designer and Prop Artist



I had a wonderful time at the Wonderland ball last Friday night. One of the most enjoyable moments of the evening was the discovery of artist and designer Kristin Costa. For the Alice themed event, she created a collection of exquisite outfits with a tongue-in-cheek interpretation of classic Lewis Carroll characters.

The red and white queens were interpreted as darkly theatrical. The queen of hearts costume was literally, a heart, a bodice of hand-painted veins and all. The white rabbit was a dramatic corset and mask ensemble with old fashioned marionettes.

Her work was also seen at the Shipwreck ball a few months ago. That collection presented witty takes on ancient sailing vessels and sea creatures.

If you're looking to obtain some of her handcrafted aesthetic into your own wardrobe, she just launched a corset and accessory collection on Etsy.com.
