HOUSE SM:  It’s definitely difficult to choose only one!  How about the top 3? We recently did a custom Sailor Moon outfit for a client attending Armin Only (van Buuren) , a Peacock inspired Corset for an EDC Vegas attendee and a custom “Patron Saint of the Rave” outfit for a Shambhala Festival goer.  All were super fun and unique to work on!

HOUSE SM: Our custom, one of a kind pieces range from $65.00 and up.  We try to work with our clients to establish their budget.  The crop tops, tights, hoods, etc. range in price from $30.00 to $85.00

HOUSE SM: Oh man!  That’s a toughy too.  There is so much creativity at all of the festivals out there.  Our travels out west have definitely shown us some unique individuals.  Motion Notion in Golden B.C. definitely showed us that people aren’t afraid to push the envelope.
