Welcome to Altered Ego, Quality Custom Costumes.

I'm Marika, the seamstress/hostess of this site. To give you some idea of my background, I have 6 years of cosplay experience and 10 years of sewing experience under my belt. My resume of costumes stretches from Renaissance dresses and Halloween costumes to Alchemists and Ninjas.

If it's a character or outfit that I may not be familiar with, all I ask is that you provide some visual references for that outfit. I'm not against doing a costume for a character that I've never heard of before. And even though I don't make props, shoes or style wigs, I will try to help you by pointing you in the direction of those that can.

The gallery includes some examples of my own costumes and those I made for others. If you have any questions, concerns or comments and wish to contact me, you can use the e-mail address located on the "Contact Me" page. Please remember, however, that I cannot guarantee an immediate response, but I will try to address your message in a timely manner. If you haven't received a reply back within 5 business days, please feel free to e-mail me again.

So yes, welcome and please, take a look around. And remember, I'm always willing to answer any questions you might have.
