MAISE DESIGNS

Gabrielle “Gabby” Donathan is a seamstress, leather worker, & jewelry artist with pieces ranging from Renaissance fantasy to Disney princesses, but her specialties are comic book and video game-based cosplay.  She is most known for her Harley Quinn variants and her mashup group projects for Phoenix Comic Fest.  In the past, she did Steampunk X-Women, Cyberpunk Gotham Girls, and last year’s favorite: Avengers in Wonderland.

She’s been blessed to work with many prominent local talents including a multitude of projects with the wonderful Itty Bitty Geek, Kaypickle on the detail-riddled Female Ezio, Katy Mor on projects for Aspen Comics that were used for San Diego promotional and booth costumes, and Amie Lynn–for whom she constructed Vivienne for Dragon Age: Inquisition’s promotional marketing.  She’s also worked on several costumes with world-renowned cosplayer Jessica Nigri, most notably her Arkham Knight Harley Quinn which was worn for Warner Bros at San Diego Comic Con 2014.
