~About Us~

In the 17th Century, the name of Saint Audrey gave rise to adjective 'tawdry', meaning 'cheap and pretentious; cheaply adorned.'

Quality, one of a kind costuming, hand-made in Portland, Oregon.

Beautiful, one of a kind costuming and upscale accessories, hand-made by one of four local Portland artists. We never make the same thing twice, so any piece you get from Tawdry Angel is absolutely uniquely yours.

Tawdry Angel has been making unique, one of a kind costuming for over a decade. We source our fabrics locally, scouring estate sales and second-hand markets to get the best possible deals to keep our prices as low as possible while still prioritizing comfort and quality. We wear what we make and for half the year we live at festivals selling our works, so we know what our work has to be able to handle. Since our pieces are entirely unique, our stock is always changing. And feel welcome to contact us about custom designs! We are happy to make you exactly what you're looking for.
