Get To Know Us

Here at Brighid Designs we like to take a gentle stroll through history and fantasy, meeting many interesting and varied people along the way. Over the years this has lead to us meeting all sorts of lovely folks, and working in many centuries.


We have outfitted everyone from nobility to the poorest members of the parish, and we always aim to please. We cover periods from around 1200-1950, although we have been known to mis-program the time machine occasionally and slide earlier in history. We also cater for LARP, Cosplay, Steampunk, Goth, Alternative and any other member of society who struggles to find clothing they like in a mainstream store. Contact us today to start your bespoke costume.

No costume is complete without the perfect accessory. We don't only specialise in sewing historical and fantasy costumes, we create handmade accessories including hats, badges, and so much more. Contact us today if you have an accessory, you would like making alongside your costume.
