MayFaire Moon Corsets & Costumes


I’m Nikki Cohen, pleased to meet you.

I’ve been a costumer for almost thirty years now in various capacities. I started, as so many of us do, making costumes for myself, then for friends, then for sartorially adventurous strangers. I pursued a Master’s Degree in Costume Design for a year at the University of Massachusetts, and then one year at Carnegie Mellon University, before I realised that perhaps I didn’t want to be in professional theatre, and it might be a good idea to stop racking up the student loans in the meantime.

I’ve studied pattern drafting and flat-patterning, costume history, dye work, and millinery. I’ve written many articles on costuming, often for a semi-whenever magazine for Renaissance Faire workers and enthusiasts.

I’ve worked backstage in productions small and not-so-small, I’ve been a dresser, a wardrobe supervisor, and a stage manager. I’ve been there, done that, and gotten numerous t-shirts. I know what I’m doing, and if I don’t, I can think up a viable, effective, and aesthetically pleasing alternative.
