The Lair is for women (at this stage, limitations with costume) wanting a costume to wear in fantastical lands, restrained by self-doubt and/or simply looking for a costume and photo studio with a unique difference. As a Creative Artist Specialist in costume, set and artistry in the digital realm, I’ll help you reclaim your sense of self, in an enchanting world as the extraordinary you.
