Amy Quinn-Tatt

Costume Seamstress

Hello and Welcome

My name is Amy Quinn-Tatt, an experienced and professional costume seamstress, designer, props maker and all-rounder based in Melbourne Australia.

Over the years I have gained experience in designing and crafting costumes from scratch, learnt how to 3D print, make foam armour and helmets.

Started sewing in 2012 after taking up cosplaying as a hobby, originally started by doing volunteer work in costume as princesses and well known children characters, raising money for various charities (Good Friday Appeal, Cystic Fibrosis) and assisting at events and festivals, I started frequenting local conventions, including going interstate to cosplay.

A year later, I started to gain interest in making cosplay costumes for others, becoming an entrepreneur by operating my own business.

In 2013 I was approached by a local film director who asked me to design and make a costume for his feature film "The Green Woman", overcoming a few learning curves it was a success and the teaser trailer has released on YouTube and has gained 5k views (as of 30/01/2019).

Since then, I have really enjoyed working on film projects, making connections and networking, building my portfolio.
Being involved in making Miss Australia's outfit for the Miss International Beauty Pageant in Tokyo where she won 3rd runner up, got invited up to Queensland to join a cruise ship for 2 weeks to do costume fixing and change of performers and got offered a role to work as Wardrobe Assistant for Taylor Swift’s backup dancers for her Reputation tour Melbourne performance.

In November 2018 I also got nominated for Hazel Rodgers Wardrobe Award at the Music Theatre Guild of Victoria for my work on Rock Of Ages at Altona City Theatre.

Currently working at Melbourne Theatre Company until July, doing wardrobe maintenance for 3 live shorts and occasionally assisting in the workshop.
