Hi! We're Lena Yasutake and Anna Yasutake, and this is the Kickstarter for our business; Cassandra's Closet. We're a custom costuming business that specializes in historically inspired costumes made from upcycled and recycled materials.

I am a teacher and costume designer. I specialize in creating costumes from upcycled, vintage and repurposed sources. I love what I do! Upcycled textiles, fabric, existing garments, rescued treasures.

I am an experienced account manager within the publishing industry. Skilled in organization, communications and database management. Well versed in the joy of tidying up!

We Need $16,000!!!

$16K in pledges is what's needed to actually get us into our new home. So why did we set our minimum goal at $6,000? Because in spite of all of your amazing support, we won't receive  a dollar of that funding unless we meet the minimum. $6K will still be enough to help us overcome the wholesale hurdle. 

Our Vision

Upcycled and restored costumes are more than just Green; they embrace the history of each piece that goes into them, ending with something truly unique and special. We at Cassandra's Closet are careful to operate as sustainably as possible; mindful of leaving as light a footprint as we can. However, the extra time and energy that goes into deconstructing garments increases expenses. We are passionate about offering affordable costumes to rent or purchase, which leads to pretty tight margins. Your contributions will be invaluable in helping us to build up our business to the point where it is successful and sustainable. We plan to do everything we can to continue offering both value and quality. We want our costumes to be accessible to the community. We believe everyone deserves to dress up!

So, lets break it down: 

The Goals:


Our most important goal is to fund the space, but before that we need basic supplies and materials. If we are unable to reach our true goal, all funds we do raise will go to these basic needs.  

How It All Began

Cassandra's Closet first began with a Regency wardrobe designed for the cast of Sense and Sensibility performed by Bridgeport International Academy. Lena Yasutake, head costume designer, dramaturge, and proprietess of Cassandra's Closet made an arrangement to accept the costumes in lieu of traditional payment.  It was the beginning of the Costume Shop. Lena soon began renting out the costumes for Regency weekends at The Governor's House in Vermont to benefit the school. Not only did customers not mind that an empire waist gown used to be a cotton curtain, they loved the narrative. Good for the planet and fun for the client!

Later she was invited with Joan van Geldern to rescue a collection of vintage costumes from a condemned barn in Pennsylvania.  These beautiful costumes had once been a part of an international performance art troupe in the 1970s. Lovingly restoring the vintage costumes gave them a second life and fueled Lena's passion for upcycled fashion. She wanted people to know, that the clothes were made from upcycled materials and had graced the stage. A friend and fellow Janite, Faith Monzeglio, pointed out that most Regency clothes are remade, bought secondhand, and shared. "You could call it Cassandra's Closet", Monzeglio suggested, "because that's where Jane Austen often got her clothes; in her sister Cassandra's closet." It was love at first listen!

Just as Cassandra Austen was Jane's closest friend and confidant, Anna Yasutake is Lena's. Anna stepped in with support, tea, scones and a plethora of administrative knowledge and professionalism when Lena needed her most. A perfect partnership was born. Two Janites; sisters by chance, friends by choice, partners by providence. Lena brought her creativity and artistry and Anna her brilliance, skill and steadfast support. Their shared dream is Cassandra's Closet.

Perks, Swag, & Costumes!

Some quick notes to all of our wonderful backers! 

  • We are a COSTUME design company, so while we strive to make sure that you are always looking fabulous and period appropriate, we are not creating historically accurate, hand-stitched garments made of all natural fibers. We LOVE historical costumers! If that is what your heart desires, please contact us for a referral. True to our commitment to recycle and repurpose, your gorgeous new fitted tailcoat most likely will be upcycled from a wool dress coat. We hope you love the idea of that as much as we do!
  • We are not (yet) weavers or cobblers but we have the inside scoop on historically appropriate stockings, top hats, gloves, and shoes. We're happy to procure those for you so that you can attend the next ball looking amazing from head to toe!
  • To our international fans: We have not forgotten you! But it's not fair to charge international shipping prices to everyone. So reach out to us and we'll put together a custom package deal, just for you!
  • Looking for a perk combo that's not here? Reach out and let us know! We can put together a special deal for you, or even create a new reward level if we get multiple requests.
  • Whether it's questions, requests, or suggestions, we'd love to hear from you and get to know our community!

The Impact

Historical costuming is often thought of as nothing more than a niche hobby, but costume offers us a unique perspective of history. It's personal. Wearing a Regency short stays or a 1860's gourd corset impresses upon you a practical fact of life from this period that you could not get from the vague and large scale picture of history proffered in classrooms and textbooks. Upcycled and restored costumes are more than just Green, they embrace that history. Keeping pieces of it alive to grace the stage and remind us once more how people lived. 

  • Upcycled and restored costumes offer a green solution for theaters, schools, actors and enthusiasts. In a world dominated by polyesters, nylons, and other synthetics, our commitment to upcyling fabric and garments helps to keep synthetics out of landfills as well as giving natural fibers new life.
  • Lena Yasutake has been a costume designer and dramaturge for over 11 years. She has put on numerous successful plays with schools and camps as well as hosting popular Regency retreats. Her recent Jane Austen ball to benefit the lovely Teel house was a triumph. With her record of creativity and success, we hope to bring her love of history and theater to the world.

Risks and challenges

To You:
Happily, while there are always risks when investing in any type of new business, very few such risks apply to you since your perks are largely handmade by us. The biggest hurdle to receiving your custom costume will be ensuring that all your measurements are correctly taken and sent in. However, we're here to help! We will work as hard and long as needed to ensure you receive your thank yous (whatever form they take) as soon as possible!

To Us:
When talking about the risks for the business on the other hand... there are quite a few associated with a costuming/design startup, especially when you tread into the wonderful world of customization. Every piece takes hours and hours of loving attention and hard work, which can be lost in a moment if the costumes are not properly stored and cared for. We've been plagued by moth attacks, experienced the loss of favorite pieces by the hand of a burst pipe, and had pieces mysteriously go missing after shows. On top of this, the materials needed to make historically accurate pieces are incredibly precious and hard to come by. We're talking silks, linens, wools, materials that most fabric stores don't even stock anymore. Beyond securing deposits, there's nothing we can do to keep our costumes safe from absconding hands, but we can protect them from the elements. This is why we need a safe place to store our costumes; so they can continue to bring life to history. Such space is expensive when you have a sizable inventory. So in our quest to make sure everyone can afford a costume, your contributions are invaluable.
