About Me

Hey, everyone! I’m Courtney, owner of Courtney Leigh Creations, where I make and sell costumes and accessories to people all over the world. I studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) and graduated in 2008. Since 2010 I have been running a costuming business where I have made over 900 costumes for international clients, theatre, haunted houses, cosplay, and fan films. Aside from costumes, I’m also an occasional fashion designer, having designed 3 fashion shows in 2011, 2014, and 2016.

When I have a little down time, I am a freelance, self-taught makeup artist specializing in airbrushing and gore. I’ve been doing FX and dramatic makeup for 6 years and am the former manager of makeup at Fear Farm in Arizona. In 2014 I started body painting as a hobby and hope to expand on that in the near future, but for now I enjoy making tutorials and have participated in numerous panels and demonstrations throughout the state about alien makeup and airbrushing. MORE TO COME!
