iphotograf beauty and the beastabout Heidi

I've been sewing for over twenty years. I make formal gowns, historical costumes, outfits for cosplay, children's theater and movie costume recreations. Over the years I've been lucky enough to work with some amazing photographers who have documented my designs in a very flattering light. I'm especially grateful to Manny Porven (iphotograf) and David Sussman for their magical portraits.
