Personally I love DC comics especially Batgirl, Birds of prey, and Cat woman. I’m all about the femme fatales. Other than that I love Star Wars, Doctor who, anything Marvel, and Lord of the rings. I also love a huge amount or cartoons and games but probably too many to list.
I started to stock Pinup Girl Clothing last year and it's been fantastic as it allows our American customers easier access to our pieces. The collaboration came about just before Suicide Squad came out. They asked me if I could make them some exclusive Harley and Joker pieces for their suicide squad collection. As you can imagine for a small company like myself this was quite a big deal. I sent them a few samples before we decided on the final product which is now available on their website.
You can see my pieces of a lot of cosplayers, convention goers, as well as a lot of lovely ladies on Instagram including plastic jewellery collector/blogger @kim0006 who has quite alot of Snikt and Bamf jewellery including some custom pieces made especially for her.
I do indeed! I love making commission pieces for people; it’s nice to have a new challenge or perhaps a look into a fandom that i hadn't been into before. I've found a lot of new shows and books thanks to commissions.

I've always loved dressing up ever since I was little, when I discovered that there was a whole group of people who do this on a regular basis my mind was blown. I often dress up for the bigger shows while on my stall, sometimes we're too busy for me to wander about in them but it's still fun.
My favourite events are the comic conventions i do especially MCM London, it has such a great atmosphere, everyone is so happy to be there.
You can expect loads more geekery from us, including jewellery, homeware, and maybe even some large scale decorative pieces for your walls.
I would like to thank Jess for her time with this interview. Make sure you check out her work here and look out for her at the events she is attending for the rest of this year.
