Create your own fantasy gowns with MissViscid!
Hi there! My name is Lena, and I am a self-taught costume maker with a passion for wearable art and role-playing (LARP, stage art and acting). I started sewing as a hobby, and over time, it turned into a full-time job.
My designs are meant to empower the wearer and make them feel confident and beautiful. Therefore I specialized on gowns that blend elements of royal fantasy with flowing layers and modern practicality. My favorite designs are those that are timeless and can be worn for years to come.
As a self-taught designer, I had to learn everything on my own. From the basics of sewing to more complex techniques like draping and pattern drafting, it was a long journey that has not ended yet. Every project is a learning experience, and every mistake is an opportunity to grow.
One of the things that I am most passionate about is encouraging sewing beginners to follow their own artistic path. Sewing can seem daunting at first, but with practice and patience, anyone can learn. I want to inspire others to explore their creativity and to create unique art styles for their fantasy worlds.
In 2021, I started digitizing my handmade sewing patterns into PDF files that you can download at any time from all over the world.
Through my patterns and tutorials, I hope to provide a platform for all who want to learn how to create their own costumes. I believe that everyone has an unique inner world, and I want to help them bring that inner world to life.
In my atelier in Germany I create all my costumes and patterns by myself. When buying at my shop, you are 100% supporting a one-person indie business.
Thank you for visiting my website, and I hope you find inspiration here to create your own mystical designs.
Stay magical and follow your heart!
