From Art to Garment

I recently did an interview with Jen Thompson of Festive Attyre. I first found out about her when my husband and I discovered her website and were impressed with the costumes she made — many of them inspired by paintings!

The costuming group I’m a part of, the Dallas-Fort Worth Costumers Guild (DFWCG), will be attending an art exhibit at the Kimbell Museum in Fort Worth. They have Impressionist paintings on display, and many of us are looking forward to seeing them.

We’re also looking forward to being inspired by them!

Please check out the interview and see how Jen has been inspired by art, and how she works out the details for some of her costumes!

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.
