About the Designer

Welcome, and thanks for visiting Sickly Sweet Style!

My name’s Heidi and I’ve always loved things that are a bit quirky. I hope you do as well.

So that you better understand my Collection, here’s a bit about me.

I started out in costuming in 2000 by making myself a costume to wear to the Ren Faire. Some of my favorite costumes to make are cartoon characters and historical recreations.  If the era requires a corset, the chances are good that I have an outfit for it!

Ironically enough, I love wearing costumes but you’ll rarely find me dressed up on Halloween. I save most of my fun outfits for clubs and conventions. My two favorite conventions are Costume College in California and DragonCon in Atlanta, GA.

If you’re into historical costuming and enjoy learning from fellow costumers, Costume College is well worth it. I’ve been going since 2006 and have taken some great hands on classes in jewelry, corsets, fairy wings, masks, leather working, ironing (yep! ironing!)...just to name a few.


DragonCon is less learning and more seeing and being seen. I’ve had quite a few costumes win contests at DragonCon, including my Daphne and Jessica Rabbit costumes.

Sharing my love of costuming with others has been a dream of mine for years. And now it has finally come together! Some of the inspirations for the items in my store include gaming, goths, Anime, Muppets, and a little bit of Disney.

I hope you like my Collection as much as I enjoyed making it.

I’d love to hear from you.

Drop me a line and let me know what you think.
