About

I am a professional artist with over 10 years of costume fabrication experience.

Hi there!  

  I started What'sUpHotdog Costumes in 2016 to create custom, quality fursuits for people all around the world. I started making costumes for fun at 12 years old and have had a passion for it ever since. I attended college at California Institute of Arts with an interest in Costume Design. After college, I worked at a variety of costume and special FX companies in Los Angeles, California. While working for these companies the clients included; Universal Studios, Disney, and Dreamworks. There I learned professional standards and techniques for mascot and costume making over the years employed. Now, still living in sunny Southern California, I am now returning to the community which inspired me to create costumes in the first place! 

 

With a strong background in professional costume making and passion for character creation, I strive to make one-of-a-kind quality character costumes that reflect each clients custom requests.
