The Sugar Dandies ‘as seen on Britain’s Got Talent – Series 6’ If you ever need a pink poodle, dancing bear costume or anything truly fabulous, do not hesitate to call Marie Kirkby. Her work takes pride of place on our costume rack!
David Greenwood – Pegasus PR We tasked Marie with designing and creating a bespoke, man-sized, turkey costume for use during a national road show. From initial contact through to final delivery, Marie was a pleasure to work with – going above and beyond to ensure the costume was delivered on time and that it surpassed all expectations. Highly recommended!
Anthony Mullen – Drongomala I commissioned two Planet of the Apes outfits (orangutan and chimp) from Marie and was delighted with the result. The consultation was the right blend of listening and guiding me on the right choices for garment creation. Fitting was fun! She is a thorough professional and your exotic projects are safe in her hands.
Natasha Schofield Marie helped me in a last minute crisis! Creating a bespoke ringmaster’s jacket from rushed measurements and no fitting. She created the finished product in just 5 days from the initial enquiry. The finished product was fantastic. Great quality and fitted perfectly. Highly recommended!
Edward Jenkins – GamerI have commissioned some cosplays for use at major gaming events throughout the UK. For example, at Ayacon and Amecon, the UK’s two biggest animation and gaming events. To see some of the work undertaken Google Image search “ayacon duke” and I will be the first 1-8 results.
If you want to bring something to life from photos, games, media, a drawing, etc. Marie will be able to do this, with near exact accuracy and with exceptional quality and service. Using all the correct materials, if they are required, such a neoploy for a survival suited character and leather for a jacketed character.
Balancing out the review, I would say that you don’t get the above without paying for it and that Marie might be a bit more expensive than others if you want the type of work I’ve described above. But you definitely get what you pay for. If you are looking for something cheap and in bulk, they may be able to accommodate you anyway, as with all places with excellent service you have but to ask.
Betka Finn – Happy bride I had an idea for a wedding dress from the Edwardian era but the creation and adaptation of this embryonic vision was all the work enthusiasm of Marie. She has outstanding skill and insight backed up with ability which helped create the most amazing dress which truly made me feel like a princess. Thank you so much Marie xx.
Claire Rudkin – Art Director Marie has worked for me on many TV productions over the last 10 years. Her work has always been of the highest standard and her creativity second to none. I would highly recommend
Hannah Lee Weller – director, The Show Team Productions Ltd We regularly use Marie Kirkby to design and manufacture costumes and accessories for stage,
TV and corporate events. Her work is always fantastic, and she has the talent to adapt to the most
lavish requests or the tightest budgets. She consistently meets the tightest of deadlines with a friendly
approach and excellent results!
Phil Peacock – Head of costumes Butlins Arghhhhhhhhh I screamed down the telephone to Marie I’ve got an emergency I need a set of costumes by next week! ‘No problems’ said an understanding Marie. She organised everything for me including the fabrics, she followed the brief came in on budget, made the deadline! And produced some fantastic costumes…… Thanks Marie you saved my Bacon!
Tim Slater – theatre/company Manager & Show producer Having worked in all aspects of the Theatre business for 22 years, I was very lucky to have had the chance to work with Marie Kirkby on many occasions. Her standard of costume making & design is second to none and what’s so great with Marie’s work is that she’s gets it to you on time & always of the highest standard.
Paul Hawkins – Capital Media group Marie and the girls have worked with us for three years now and delivered fantastic bespoke costumes, which have fitted our briefs to the letter. We very much look forward to working with Marie again.
