Feisty Diva started making costumes when she was drafted into working at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Drawing on the sewing skills she learned from her mother and grandmother, she set out to make her own garb to help save money and put together a look she could call her own. The costume making evolved and progressed into different eras and themes as she was invited to various historical reenactments, cons and parties and had to create new outfits for each event.

When she began modeling, Feisty Diva incorporated her costuming skills into her repertoire to collaborate with photographers in the pursuit of unique imagery.
