MADE IN THE FOREST

cruelty free animal costumes, festival hats and headdresses handmade in bristol 
"Suuuuuper cute! Ordered a custom color and they did it such justice! Easy communication and fast shipping :) I am very satisfied and will definitely order from this store again. Thank you!"
"In these times during the pandemic, you just HAVE to support artists, and I made a fantastic choice by supporting this one! MadeIntheForest did a spectacular job on some ears and I could not ask for anything better. Money very well spent instead of buying from a warehouse. Thank you so much for the lovely little letter you sent along with the ears. I 100% recommend them for your ear needs! These are going to be for a cosplay for TikTok (Haru from Beastars). The ears are bendable and the fabric is soft. please support your fellow artists!"
ABOUT US

My name is Lexi.

After university (studying Textile Design) I started making and listing jewellery etc. on Etsy while I applied for jobs. I decided to call my shop 'Made In The Forest' as the home where I grew up in Somerset is right next to some beautiful woods. And I love the themes of fantasy and nature that the word forest suggests to me. The wolf hood was popular so I branched out into more animals, more hats, then tails too. Soon, after sales kicked off, I realised I didn’t want an office fashion design job anyway! I took a part time seamstress job in Bristol for about 8 months until I was earning more from Made In The Forest, and I was able to quit! I have loved being my own boss ever since.

Music festivals are the best part of my year. I love to dress up in crazy sparkly outfits, and now my shop enables others to do the same. I love animals, and most of my costumes are animal related, I always look at real animals for inspiration to make my creations as lifelike as possible. I am vegetarian too, so obviously would never real fur, leather or suede in my items.

Thanks for reading my story Lexi x
