Are you a designer? Do you design costumes for role-players or re-enactors, whether it be for theatre, movies or your local school’s drama coach …. Do you design clothes for today?

Or perhaps you are a designer of accessories, such as jewelry, shoes, gloves, masks, period-weaponry? Yes, even weapons!

My intention is to see if there are enough people to create an informal group or network, for potential business or personal collaborations.


My own background is the design and creation of personal parasols and umbrellas. Although I create parasols and umbrellas for modern day use, many of my commissions have been for historical replications for personal re-enactors, role-playing, living history museums, theatres, both here and across the USA. This also includes historical reproductions.

On occasion, I have worked with local artisans to complete certain commissions. I would like to continue using local expertise, but I need to know who, and where you are. I am certain there must be others, in the art/business category, who also find themselves occasionally in this same situation ….. wanting to use local talent, but not knowing if it is available.

Please do not hesitate to call me if you are interested, want additional information, or would just like to discuss your thoughts and ideas on what I’m proposing. I would love to hear from you.

I can be contacted by e-mail or you can call me at 604-886-9205 – preferably any time between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm.
