Creature Costumes

This is the first baby costume I made - it's a mountain lion, in case you weren't sure...
All costumes are made from supersoft fur.

 This is my bear costume. I make all hand paws separate to the sleeves for easy removal 

Cwtch Club has arrived!

Cwtch Club is a new company that makes softie 3d keepsakes from children's drawings and creature costumes for babies, toddlers & children.

I am an experienced & talented Costume Designer & Maker with over 15 years of experience in TV & theatre. I can turn my hand to anything and have recently decided to turn it to making soft toys & children's creature costumes to order. 

I have a degree - BA (hons) Fashion, studied in Cardiff and then Southampton. I started working as a Wardrobe Supervisor in 1996 for touring opera - Opera Box and began working as a freelance Costume Maker, Supervisor, Assistant & Pattern Cutter for many different theatres and production companies such as the Swan, Worcester & the Sherman, Cardiff, Kevin Darby, Script to Screen, Mappa Mundi. I got my first TV job in 2000 working for Pobol y Cwm, followed quickly by Lucky Break, Nuts & Bolts, Dot's Story, Footballers' Wives, Jacob's Ladder & Tracey Beaker.

Decide what animal you want to dress your child in, let me know the age/size required & I will get it produced within 2 weeks. I charge £60 for this service plus postage. Unusual sizes or particularly difficult creatures will cost extra, ask me for a quote.

Is your child a talented, imaginative artist? Send in their pictures to have them made into 3d, a life long keepsake.  All fabric and materials used are safe for children & non toxic. Send a picture of the drawing via e-mail for a quote. I endeavour to complete any orders within 2 weeks.
