Hi! Welcome to my page! My name is Caitlin and I'm a costume designer and seamstress for hire! Here, I'll post images of my work! If you're interested in a design or costume creation, check out my etsy page!
Today I launched my brand new, 100% me website! Adaria Designs feels so much more official with a website and domain name all to our own, rather than a smattering across FB and Tumblr or other websites!
Thank you all so much for your continued support!
During this holiday season, as I have some time off from commissions before the new year, I will be reorganizing my office and getting a cutting/sewing table. I actually have a little secret about my office: it’s the second bedroom in an apartment. A second secret is that my cutting/sewing table is the roll-out rotary cut board and a card table that wiggles when I sew too quickly!
I’m so excited for my new table. Thank you IKEA~

Aela the Huntress cosplayed by my amazing client, A. I am thrilled to see how well the project turned out to be! I bet she’s cold, though. <3
Cosplay created by Adaria Designs (aka me!)
Worn by A. E. (Client!)
Tonight, Adaria is practicing her Google Fu in preparations for finishing Link’s costume!
Remember, cosplayers; It is not always skill or great talent, but the effort and dedication you put into what you do! Now, practice your Google Fu and find those tutorials. Then go practice what you’ve learned.
You are no longer on Level 0.
Congratulations on a great start up! I look forward to using your site as soon as I’m back from the holiday! ~Adaria
"Skyrim" Aela the Huntress
Materials used include mole skin suede fabric, faux-fur, faux-leather belting, Worbla Thermoplastic, and chain mail.
Aela the Huntress—Worbla Progress
So this was an exciting day! My adventures with Worbla continues from bracers (not shown) to the shoulder pieces! I’m having an amazing time learning and working with this material. It is as sturdy as they say, you need no glue, and it seals itself. There are bracing pieces on the inside to hold all of the seams together, of course, but in some situations it almost felt unnecessary.
These have passed the drop test.
Aela Work in Progress Part 2!
The chainmaille has come in today, which I’m excited for, and the Worbla I’ll be using to create her bracers, pauldrons, and accessories has also come in.
Please pardon the awful iPad photo! I was just SO EXCITED about Aela the Huntress that I had to share an in progress shot—which I normally post only to my Facebook! Do you guys think I should start posting in progress shots here?
