From chain mail to felt and clay Knight Blue Designs knows how to create full costumes and articles for any Comic Con, LARP (Live Action Role Playing), or event…

“We create custom costumes, set design and propmaking. Sewing a costume or building a prop depends on budget, detail, deadline, and the materials and capabilities available in our creation lair.  Creating costumes and props exactly from the artwork of a 2D or 3D cartoon can be intricate and takes time to bring it to reality. Almost everything we create was created custom for each specific client.”
