Angela Clayton is an 18-year-old budding costume designer from Long Island, New York.
She started out making incredible cosplay costumes. Check out these awesome Elsa and Merida costumes!
She soon upgraded to historical and fantasy-inspired gowns.
She runs a blog that features helpful progress pictures and construction notes.
“I love the freedom of working on original designs, and the complexity and detail work that comes with historical projects.” Angela said.
Recently she started a YouTube channel with tutorials and informative videos.
Her Elsa costume took around 250 hours to create, with 170 of those hours dedicated to embellishing the cape by hand.
This feathery white dress was inspired by some of the opulent gowns on the Marchesa catwalk.
Here, she re-created the outfit from the Portrait of Doña Isabel de Requesens painting by Raphael and Giulio Romano.
This pleated navy Renaissance dress used 12 yards of fabric!
Her Cinderella-inspired dress is a beautiful take on Disney’s version.
Angela says this Christmas angel dress is one of her favorite costumes she’s made so far.
At the moment, she’s obsessed with medieval fashion.
