Ruffled Designs

Ruffled Designs creates
appealing, easy-to-wear costumes. Everything is unique & custom-made. We look forward to working with you!

We're two people with over a decade of experience creating traditional & wearable art.

Here's a glimpse of how we work:

  1. Hand-crafted with care, never rushed.

    Our costumes are 100% handmade in-house. They take 1-2 months to make.

  2. A reference sheet by a professional artist.

    This clarifies the appearance and features of your costume before we begin, so we're all on the same page. You don't need to bring a design.

  3. We aren't afraid of crazy ideas.

    Whether you need a standard animal or a fantasy creature, we're up for the challenge.

  1. The best materials & techniques.

    We use the softest & most durable faux furs, reinforced stretch stitching in high-stress areas, lycra or mesh lining over foam parts, and finished edges to avoid fraying.

  2. Beautiful sculpture.

    We create smooth, natural shapes with our years of experience at complicated padding.

  3. Same day response.

    We provide progress photos at your request.

  4. Cleaning is beyond simple.

    Use our invisible zippers to remove the padding from your costume. Then go right ahead and toss the entire thing (except the head) in any standard washing machine on cold with a gentle detergent.
