Columbia's Closet was a blog created by Mina Credeur that detailed her research and construction methods for making Rocky Horror costumes. In previous years she accepted custom commissions, but later only sold accessories and embroidered patches at conventions.


Mina Credeur created the blog in 2009 to compliment her custom costume business by detailing the work that went into her costumes. Because it's a blog format readers were invited to comment with their own results and insights. The blog was taken down in 2020.

Mina sold embroidered reproductions of the following at conventions and (sometimes) online:
