Before the pandemic, I had worked for myself for 12 years, solely in costumes. I have worked in both theater and T.V. & film. Which was a blessing before the pandemic and has proven to be a curse trying to find a job in the pandemic world. IndyCraftivist started as a result. With almost 20 years of making costumes for theater, I was left with a lot of time on my hands. I decided I would start making products that I thought would be useful or something I would like to wear. I started with things I already had access to, which keeps quantities low. I am also passionate about reduce, reuse, recycle.
