About Us

Ember Costumes was a blog and costume tutorial website started by siblings Angela and John back in 2007. Our costume experiments and failures led us to post our tutorials and successes to help other fledgling costume-makers!

A lot has changed in the past 10 years. John is now a married computer programmer with a lovely wife and two little girls, a nerf enthusiast, a LARPer, and a skilled leatherworker. Angela finished a degree in writing, got married, had three kids, and is a black belt, sewing hobbyist, and stay at home mom!

One thing that hasn't changed is our love for creating things and sharing them with the people we love. We also love to help, so if you have a question about a project please reach out via email or comment and we'll do our best to answer!

Thanks for reading!
