— MEET THE SHOP —
Our shop has cutters, drapers, stitchers and an office assistant!
Bethany is the owner of Bethany Joy Costumes. She manages the business side and is the principal pattern-maker, but is also known to pick up a pair of scissors or a needle when need be.
Our Workroom Manager, Melanie, makes sure we stay on schedule and meet deadlines. She is also Bethany’s main assistant with principal garments and leads team members through higher-level costume construction. She is also one of our Lead Drapers, with experience in LED-lit costumes and fat padding.
The other Draper/Cutters are Elizabeth, one of our main dressmakers, and Brent, who handles our more crafty and tailoring-heavy projects. They are charged with patterning, draping, cutting and leading our stitchers through the assembly of the garments. Every now and again you might catch them behind a machine.
Erin is our first-hand shared by the drapers and is the Lead Stitcher, specializing in stretch that keeps the workroom entertained.
We have a rotating group of stitchers. Right now, Athene and Becca are our leads on assembling garments and doing finishing work.
Lastly, Simone is our office assistant. She is the first person you’ll talk to when communicating with the shop, is our shopper, organizes receipts, sends emails and works on this website!
