“What I love about Another World costumes and makes them so unique is that they conjure up stories and characters without being restricted by them, so children can make them into whatever they want them to be.
I find them so useful in my play therapy context. The costumes can help the children embark on their own individual journeys in their imagination.”
“Presenting your costumes to class is always exciting and generates anticipation to try the costumes on, and most importantly bring the stories alive.”
“It’s wonderful to see how much the children enjoy the costumes as a tool for their imagination, using imitation, discovery, empathy, confidence building, gender exploration and filling in their own gaps in the story.”
I’m Sarah, creator of Another World Costumes and I design and handmake everything in my east London workroom.
I’m passionate about celebrating and nurturing creativity and nourishing our imaginations and believe a wonderful way of doing this is through stories and imaginative play.
My mission is to create dressing up costumes which inspire children to explore and express themselves freely, discover, empathise and work out their own ideas and stories.
