I’m Tab Kimpton, full time Costume maker and Comic writer.
I began making costumes in October 2007 for a small recon in my local town. Since then I have made dozens of costumes, for myself, friends and commissioners. Unfortunately I now only make one costume a year for myself but I try to keep the site updated when I can!
I do a lot of skit and performance work in my costumes, so you’ll find some funny stuff on this site as well as serious costumes. I love making complex ridiculous costumes then taking them up on stage and being ridiculous in them.
I run a dealers table at most Anime/comic events in the UK, selling a range of Steampunk accessories and my LGBT comic work. I have several years experience giving panels and workshops at events and try to have a fresh set of panels for each calendar year to keep things exciting. If you’d like to have me do a talk at an event for you, please visit the events section to see my schedule and the sort of panels I give.
If you’re interested in LGBT, Queer, Gender and Sexuality comics, feel free to have a look at my comic work at Discord Comics
