• Welcome to Firefly Path!

    I have this silly habit. With every person I meet I imagine what they might look like in the faerie realm. As I begin to know them better their fay features become more evident to me. This is the way I design fantasy costumes, enhancing or contorting their attributes. Lifting the veil to reveal their own otherworldly beauty and enchantment they possess. There is a place somewhere between waking and sleeping where faeries play. In this twilight hour we can pass through to their world and in that short time we might be able to enjoy their glamor and learn the secrets of their society.
    I hope you enjoy the journey through these costumes I create, the lore I weave, and the images the photographers have captured. Every stitch that has been sewn, every bead that shimmers helps tell the faerie's story. During the growth of Firefly Path my life has been a faerie tale. I've traveled the world with my wonderful friends to capture these mystical creatures on film. Seeking them out in castle ruins, perched in desert canyons, finding them in lush rain forests, hidden inside an ancient bathhouse, gracing palace courtyards and through it all I've learnt that dreams really do come true and I am so very happy to be sharing mine with you.

Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball 2013

Every year, the Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball is the event I get the most excited about! The Firefly Path forest display grew this year with the help of Raiya Corsiglia, Zach Marquez, and Jack Conway. The studio has been abuzz these last few months with Firefly Path seamstresses Jes Reaves and Cassie Wanda Marshall Mich creating costumes for both patrons and themselves. I wanted to say, for those of you whom I had the pleasure to meet and chat with at the ball… THANK YOU! I’m so honored that you find the work we do here at Firefly Path inspiring. Seeing so many beautiful guests wearing Firefly Path costumes and accessories at the Ball fills my faerie heart with joy! Thank you for sharing your love of Fantasy with me!
