I run a small custom costume store here in Copenhagen. I come from escola de samba liverpool and trained in costumier work in rio. I make alot of my girls costumes back in liverpool and they have graciously let me use their pictures for promo work.

My costumes are one of a kind, built to rio carnival standards (ive also danced in rio carnival so i know they need to hold up etc). I have also been a member of a samba school here in Copenhagen and danced myself last year at carnival.

Our order books are open all year and it takes 6 weeks to make a costume. We cater for all shapes, sizes and budgets and nothing is ever to much work. All our feathers are hand dyed and all our crystals and rhinestones are genuine meaning you get your moneys worth. Our frames are made of steel and everything is made so you sparkle and shine.
