About Me


Mem portraitHi!  I’m Mem.  I am a New York-based costumer, crafter, cosplayer, and historical interpreter.  I’m currently in graduate school at NYU, getting a dual masters in costume studies and library science, and I have a BFA in costume design.  I’m also the wardrobe supervisor for the Tisch Grad Acting program, and a Domestic Sites interpreter at Colonial Williamsburg, and last year I portrayed Lady Frances Brooke, Baroness Cobham at the New York Renaissance Faire.  And I’m generally a huge geek.

1461102_10202361009337352_1415814583_nThis blog is dedicated to my historical costuming and other costuming and crafting projects.  My main time periods of interest are Elizabethan (late 16th-early 17th century) and mid-Victorian (1860s-1880s), though I dabble in late 18th century, Regency (early 19th century), Steampunk, and the occasional cosplay.  I love to learn new crafts.  My most recent experiments have been in embroidery and hand-spinning.  This year I’m hoping to work on lacemaking.

If you’re a knitter, you can find me on Ravelry.

Thanks for stopping by!
