THE COSTUME ARTIST, THE AUTHOR, THE STORYTELLER

Based in Turku, Finland, Nina creates extraordinary pieces of costumes for all corners of showbusiness. She's best known for her works in the music industry, especially from artpieces worn by Kamelot and Korpiklaani. But she is not a stranger in the theatre world either, her costumes becoming a success where ever she drags her tailoring doll. She's even done burlesque, designing "nerdlesque" shows behind the stage and performing on-stage, even to George R.R. Martin himself!

 

Being also a horror writer and a storyteller, she takes inspiration from other worlds, which exist in the book pages or movies, inside and outside the earth, in Paris, in the scandinavian mythology or in her own dreams and nightmares at night. Her art speaks of her trips to England, France, Italy and Finland as do her bookshelves filled with strange goblins, venetian masks, bottles and broken clocks.

Goblins, fairies, aliens and historical costumes appear in her texts, wardrobe and shows.

 

Her passion for costumes started at 5th grade, when she drew a costume of a snowqueen. Already then she had an eye for details, as the queen's outfit was dripping of icy waterdrops. As a teenager when she saw Gwendal Peizerat and Marina Anissina perform "Dance mon Esmeralda" on an ice-dancing contest and finding the musical Notre-Dame de Paris, she knew for sure what she wanted to do with her life.

Later studying at the St.Michel University of applied sciences she started experimenting with distressed surface effects which eventually became her trademark.
