• 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.

Masquerade Princess Celestia

Princess Celestia Ball Gown
This gown was made for The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball. I wanted to create a human version of Princess Celestia (My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic). Not only did I want to make a human version but also something decadent that she would wear to a masquerade. Celestia has a sun theme, I incorporated a star burst to the center of her tapestry panel. I added white LED lights to the wings for an ethereal glow. Fluffy layers of tulle and pearl organza make the high collar and puff sleeves.

Atlantis Nymph

MyBelle Photographee did a beautiful photoshoot with Sarah Willick in her Atlantis Nymph costume. 

This costume is designed for a Sea Goddess. The skirt is inspired by waves crashing on the beach; rolling waves pull back, revealing shimmering frothy layers of skirt. The jewelry I designed to look like ancient magical relics, matching the necklace to the under-bust decor. Natural sea elements like the sea fan headdress and fin shoulder pauldron give the impression that this sea dwelling goddess decorated herself with the finest natural sea life. 

Disney’s Aladdin & Jasmine

Raiya Corsiglia – Director did a photohoot last weekend with Traci Hines & Leo Camacho As Jasmine and Aladdin! 

Jasmine – Disney Princess Jasmine Costume for Traci Hines. Keeping it more realistic using fabrics like silk and lace encrusted with crystals and gems like a real princess would wear! The silk has a slight gradient to a darker teal at the bottom. Flowery lace vine grow up from the bottom of the pant leg. Jasmine has a bit of sensuality to her and I wanted to enhance that by adding a slit that lace up at the sides of the hips. I think it bring attention to a beautiful part of the body that usually is not revealed added to her exoticness.

 Aladdin – Disney Aladdin Costume for Leo Camacho. For this costume I used more realistic texture that would bring him to life. Worn linen pants with dirt around the cuffs. His vest is a raw silk what I hand dyed purple. For the fez I sprayed the rim a darker red to make it look as sweat had seeped up around the hat band.

You did an amazing job on both costumes. The attention to detail is astounding. They look like the real Aladdin and Jasmine! Brings me back to the day when I was a kid and used to watch the movie all the time. :]

Enchantress ( Marvel Comics)

I had two comic book costume events coming up and wanted to pick a character I could pull off. I loved Enchantress, her design differs from comic books and TV series. This allowed be to pick and choose my favorite parts to design this costume. I love her design because it reminds me so much of She-Ra! At Comic Con 2012 my photographer friend Paolo Cellammare did a photoshoot with Jack Conway as Star Lord, Dasha Bolotina as Scarlet Witch and myself as Enchantress.

Bellydancer’s Winter Theme Wedding Gown

Stephanie commissioned me to make her fantasy wedding gown. This customer commissioned me for a frosty theme fantasy wedding gown. She is a belly dancer with a beautiful tattoo on her back that she wanted to elegantly show on her wedding day. I designed a gown that would be worthy of a princess belly dancer on her wedding day with delicate lace, ombre silk and crystal details.
