About Pascalle


Graduating with a BFA in Graphic Design from Indiana University, Pascalle has been solving creative challenges from a very early age. They can spot a typo a mile away, an unclosed div in their sleep, and are exceedingly at home in the Adobe Creative Suite.


In addition to being an art director, designer, published illustrator, and costumer, Pascalle brings a multi-dimensional approach to any design challenge, offering unique perspectives and visual solutions. Experience directing photoshoots, leading creative teams, and teaching sewing classes are great examples of their leadership abilities and initiative. HTML/Bootstrap responsive protyping rounds out the skillset, with six years' experience creating pages from scratch, or via Wordpress.


What spare time is left is spent walking the Break Reminder Beast, practicing sword combat for SCA, and gardening.

Inspired by K.J. Bishop's novel, The Etched City, and the illustrations of Yoshitaka Amano, the peacock frock coat was constructed out of velvet with multilayered eye appliques and glass beading. Photos by Tyler Mattingly.

Created summer 2021 for the Speed Art Museum's Isabelle de Borchgrave runway event. The ready-to-wear look was inspired by the Elizabeth I gown, and involved creating custom fabric. Handbag was inspired by the spanish mantua gown. Additional feature in VOICE Louisville's June 2021 issue.







FFXII Balthier; this costume required inital forays into leatherworking and custom shoes.







Winter Soldier v1; this comics-centered edition features a stretch metallic arm.
Later editions revise the arm to be more structured and metallic.







Winter Soldier v2; this version was more film-oriented and required extensive prototyping to keep articulation while still remaining metallic.
The final arm is created out of seltzer bottles and adhesive mylar, with plates secured by bookbinding screws.
This project is very much under construction - test wears were successful but can be improved upon for better range of movement.







Made possible through the award of LVL1 Makerspace's Makership, this armor not only required learning stretch fabric and corsetry, but thermoplastic as well.




Costume creation and wardrobe for FEVA's Moulin Louge performance of El Tango de Roxanne.







Netflix Castlevania required some familiarity with FX makeup; learning bullwhip was just a bonus.
