We are wife and husband team Kate and Tony Daley Di Poce. Kate started Daley Kreations in 2012. Since then, we have built costumes together, fallen in love, gotten married, and are now dedicated to making DK the go-to place for cosplay supplies in Ottawa. Together we have over 20 years of costuming experience.
is a special effects artist and full-time geek, originally from Kingston, ON. She made her first cosplay for her first con in 2002 and started studying sfx make-up under Academy Award winner Dick Smith shortly after. Kate has designed costumes and make-up for theatre, film, tv, and of course, cosplay.
Tony (aka Panda Partner)
started cosplaying at Dragon*Con 2009. He really enjoys building big monster suits like Earl Sinclair from the show Dinosaurs (with which he won Best Novice Mascot at Costume Con 32), and the Japanese Kaiju Gamera. Kate is good at fine details but Tony likes handling the logistics - Tony is DK's road manager.
