Charlie Baptist is an enthusiastic, resourceful and hard-working costume supervisor, costume maker, dresser, stylist and seamstress. Highly organised and focused with a classic kiwi ‘can-do’ attitude. Thrives when working under pressure, whether that is working on multiple productions or meeting tight deadlines. Charlie is happily working individually in her home studio or collaboratively in a workroom.


Charlie's main skill set is interpreting costume sketches and understanding designer visions to create high quality garments that not only look just like the picture but are suitable to last vigorous wearing. Charlie has worked in many work rooms across the globe with The Hobbit Trilogy, BBC - Strictly Come Dancing and Cuban Ballet - Danza Acosta among others.


Let Charlie help you with all your costume needs, whether you’re a designer with a vision that needs a costume supervisor to manage budgets, meet tight deadlines, to liaise with makers and source costumes. Or maybe you need an organized wardrobe mistress to liaise with the production team, to set up dressing rooms and facilitate costume changes.
