Sionnach Studios is the combined effort between Billythebrick Cosplay and The Feathered Hart Costumes!
We have found that we tend to work together on most of our commission projects, and so creating a single name under which to operate was the next logical step. All commission projects and film work will happen here, moving through the studio, with more personal projects appearing on our individual pages. This has been a long standing goal for both of us, and we are beyond excited to see it coming together.
The Feathered Hart (Heather)
Heather has been making with her hands since she was 8 years old. Anything her mom or other relatives put in front of her was fair game–sewing, crochet, knitting, hook rugs, coloring, painting, pottery, sculpture, and so many more. She tried so many things and enjoyed all of them immensely. As she got older and had the freedom to explore more mediums she’d never dared to try in the past, she realized how much she loved making costumes and props because it requires so many skill sets, constantly drives her to continue learning, and has helped give her the confidence to be herself.
She began this with the intent of sharing her passion for creating and her making adventures with the community and she hopes to encourage others to create their own art adventure.
Billythebrick Cosplay (Will)
After almost 20 years in the IT world, Will moved on and decided to make cosplaying and prop building a full-time gig. He’s been doing it seriously for over seven years now. He does everything from sewing and pattern making to foamsmithing, mold making and casting, to 3D model design and printing. And if he doesn’t already do something, he’d love to learn it and add it to his toolbox.
Will has placed in several costume and prop contests as well as judged multiple contests. He also frequently hosts and participates in cosplay related panels at conventions.

Redbird Makes (Paige)
Paige is the latest addition to the Sionnach Studios team! Paige has been making things for as long as she can remember! As a child she made longswords out of yardsticks and duct tape and, while her materials have changed, the spirit is still very much the same. Paige has a never-ending passion for creating that shows up in every aspect of her work alongside a razor sharp attention to detail. You can follow Paige on Instagram and Facebook.
