Make an appointment so that I can help you find a clear solutions suited to your situation.

I put my many years of experience and my thousands of hours of work, learning, trying / mistakes at your service.

A 30-minute zoom meeting so that we can look at your project together.

📌 Do you need help making an action plan for your next project?

📌 Are you stuck on a part of your costume and you don't know how to go about fixing your problem?

📌 Are you afraid of going wrong and ruining your materials?

I'm here for you: We discuss YOUR project and YOUR questions for half an hour. And I give you all my advices.

So that you leave with lots of new knowledge and lots of cool stuff. So that you understand where you're going and have a great plan. And you procrastinate less and you are not afraid to move forward with your project.

I can help you with:

  • Sewing
  • Patterns
  • Fabrics of all kinds
  • EVA foam
  • Worbla
  • Assembly of different materials
  • Fastening systems
  • Finishing of 3D printed parts
  • Painting
  • Weathering
  • etc.

🤓 Keep in mind that English is my second language (I'm here to help you, but my English isn't perfect).

      <tc>How it works?</tc>

      * Be advised that English isn't my firt language - I'll be super happy to help you, but I just wanted you to remember. 😉

      First, you will have a short questionnaire to fill out.

      Because I want to know about your project. I want to know where you're at. Have you started? Are you stuck? On what? That way, we can get to the heart of the matter from the first minute of our meeting. No wasting time.

      Then you can make an appointment.

      I offer you several time slots: AM, PM, evening, and even on weekends. Your schedule is surely very busy, so I offer you as many options as possible.

      Our meeting will be by videoconference, via zoom.

      Just you and me. For us to discuss your project, for 30 minutes. It's perfect for taking the time to discuss your project without blocking too much time in your schedule.

      And you'll leave with the recording of our meeting.

      So, no stress. You can take notes if you want. But you can also concentrate 100% on our exchange. You will have the opportunity to re-watch the video, whenever you want, as many times as you want. If there are details you forgot, if there is a technique you would like to see again, if you just want to see my beautiful face again... The video is yours.

      I had the chance to test Julie-Chantal's help service for a project that is just starting. Thanks to her help, I was able to prevent many pitfalls, see ways of doing things that I would not have thought of, all while laughing and without pressure!

      Whether you are a beginner or experienced, I highly recommend the services of Julie-Chantal. I've been making costumes since 2012 and, despite my years of experimentation and a ton of tutorials on the internet, Julie-Chantal has taught me a lot of super useful new tricks.

      She is able to dissect your needs and explain the materials, techniques and steps to follow. I now have lots of new things to test in my next cosplays!


      Julie-Chantal's help service is simply wonderful to get unblocked, reassured or simply learning new techniques to make our difficulties easier.

      Her attention to detail, her ability to listen and her ease of approach make this consultation something quick, efficient and simply pleasant.

      You don't want to waste time looking for hours for a solution on the internet

      It's true that Youtube and Facebook help groups are great for finding solutions to your questions. On the other hand, the answers are not always perfectly adapted to your situation. And it's possible that you'll waste a lot of time doing your research.

      I offer you an easy solution: no endless research. No headache to know if it really works in your situation.

      You procrastinate your project because you don't really know where to start

      Doing the first move and starting a project is often the most difficult step...

      I'm here for you. I love making action plans and planning projects. We will put your project in order together. Afterwards, you'll feel super motivated to start.

      You're afraid of screwing up and ruining your project.

      My best advice is is always to do tests. It's the best way to avoid getting screwed up.

      But if you have no idea where to start, I'm here to help you find options.

      You messed up (it happens) and you need help getting your costume back

      Don't be ashamed, I still often mess up when I'm making costumes (even with 20 years of experience). It's part of the game. This is often how you learn the most (it's painful... but effective).

      Sometimes though, it takes a little help to get up. I can be the crutch that will support you when you get back on your feet.

      <transcy>You have doubts?</transcy>

      You don't know if you will be able to explain your problem to me?

      My form is quite complete. I even ask for photos, so you can show me a visual of your situation (or your inspiration). And if I don't understand, I'll ask you questions BEFORE the meeting. The idea is to be ready when we'll start your session. Above all, I don't want to waste your time.

      You don't know if I can help you remotely?

      I have 2 webcams, to be able to show you different angles of work, and close-ups if necessary. Besides, our meeting will be recorded. This means that the techniques I'll show you, you'll be able to look at them again and again, to make sure that you really understand the details and the nuances. Honestly, I think it's even better than sitting next to you.

      You're afraid you won't understand the techniques I'm going to show you?

      I have given sewing lessons for beginners and coaching to more advanced people. I can adapt to your situation without problem. If you need an ultra easy solution, let me know, and that's what I'll find for you. It's as simple as that.

      You don't know if you're equipped enough to do what you want?

      Even though I have accumulated a lot of products, different materials, tools and specialized machines, I'm still a big fan of simplicity. I like simple and inexpensive options. I also like to find several ways to get from point A to point B. We'll find, together, a solution that suits your situation.

      You don't know how long it will take to see everything you want to see?

      I'm going to be super honest with you… I also have a bit of trouble judging how long it takes to explain stuff. But, I do my best to give you as much information as possible in 30 minutes. Usually, we manage to see a lot of things.
