Theatrical Costume, Accessory and Prop Design since 1985
Whimsey Wear was formed in 1985 when I began to specialize in the English Renaissance period and moved toward a retail business. My work has been featured in movies, theater, and a variety of entertainment and advertising mediums as well as and themed events and personal collections worldwide. I specialized in masks, period accessories and exotic one-of-a-kind clothing.
One of few mask artists in the U.S., I was a favored attraction at the Original Renaissance Pleasure Faire and The Great Dickens Christmas Faire as well as many other faires, reenactment and exotic/erotic events. I am proud to have been the first creator or fans, hatpins and dusters in renfaire community. Sadly, the local renaissance and reenacment circuit has lost much of the magic that it once held for me and I officially retired in 2007.
Recently I have migrated to graphic and web design. See my new work at SusanFields.com.
Although I have moved on to new ventures, I still take the occasional custom order and am considering resuming some of my items after we move to another part of the country. While I was not diligent about photographing my work, you can still see some examples here. A variety of available items and crafting supplies can be found on the "For Sale" pages at great prices! I have more things that may not yet be listed, please inquire if there is something you are looking for.
