Jen Running Deer, owner of The Masquerade Lab, has been sewing for over 20 years and has always loved costumes, starting with an award winning 7th grade Miss Piggy number. Along the way, she's outfitted Aliens, Superheroes, and a famous Ranger or two…among other things. She's made multiple appearances in the Puget Sound with her costumed Lord of the Rings troupe and teaches Teen Costuming Workshops for the King County Library System.
