Every color you see here was cut from a different piece of fabric. Early in my career, I created a technique for creating smooth, flat, and intricate applique patterns – it’s what I was always known for!

Marie Porter is a spandex & cosplay costumer in Minneapolis, and author of the “Spandex Simplified” series of sewing manuals. After a long hiatus from creating custom sportswear, she has returned to the business, refreshed and ready to go…

Ok, enough of that third person talk! Hi, I’m Marie!

I do costuming for Synchro swimmers, figure skaters, pro wrestlers, dancers, gymnasts, custom clubwear, super hero costumes, cosplay, pageants, baton twirling, and more. If you can wear it, odds are I can and will do it!

I can design an outfit from a description of an idea, from scratch, or from a supplied design. Feel free to contact me about your specific needs.

I’d like to welcome my past, present, and future clients to my new spandex costuming website!

Hope you enjoy the new site!

Marie
