Liz Galeria - a.k.a. Anty Lyz - majored
in theatre arts in college. Her favorite work is specialty
costumes. She has designed or worked on almost every
costume era from pre-historic to space aliens.
While working as a show dresser
in Reno, NV, she worked with exotic dancers and mastered
the fine art of rip-away costumes. Her
fashion design work includes many different styles and
eras of costumes, clothing, lingerie, corsets and headwear
for all walks of life, including
several female impersonators, such as Holotta Tymes
of Tyme of Your Life Productions.
Some of her most rewarding design
work was with performance artist Frank Olivier of the
Cabaret. She was artistically stretched, pushed
and pulled to design some of her most creative costumes
and secret designs.
She loves making all kinds of corsets,
including rehearsal (training), show (much tighter),
re-enactment (historically correct), tight-lacing (very
tight) and many costume type corsets. She also teaches
corset and lingerie making classes in Castro Valley,
Her background includes seasons
at the local Renaissance Faire, The San Francisco Opera,
and many small theatre groups in the Bay Area. In 1993,
she worked for the Redwood City Community Theatre and
designed costumes for their production of Jesus Christ
Superstar, which earned a nomination from the San Francisco
Bay Area Theatre Guild.
She's done a lot of work over the
years for some impressive clients, including Bette Midler
for The San Francisco Opera in Walt Disney's Hocus Pocus.
She also worked on costumes for MC Hammer and crew for
his Comeback Tour.
Several years ago, Liz credits
her partner with a vision of this company and it's considerable
growth. Mark and Liz have since created several franchises
to specialize in certain vertical markets.
