Making costumes is a life long hobby. Working at the Victorian Opera Wardrobe Department consolidated Kari's love for costume. Since then she has created ball gowns for the daughters of every friend as they come of age. Deb ball dresses, formal dresses, tango dresses, ball gowns, fancy frocks... have all come off Kari's sewing machine over the years.
The Unusual Suspects
In recent years Kari took on volunteer costume consultant for The Unusual Suspects. A crazy Balkan street band from Maleny in Queensland Australia, they play at festivals and events. Kari designs and makes individual headdresses for the band members.
