About Us

Dreampower was born 28 years ago, from the vision and creativity of Shari Woods. Shari is the mother of five (now all grown up) creative children.  Shari understood the important role of imaginative play in kids lives and development.

Shari designed and hand-sewed her first costume masterpieces for her own children. They received such praise and interest from other kids and their parents, that she quickly saw the demand for her unique costume designs.

Dreampower was an immediate hit!

Twenty years ago, after graduating with a degree in Fine Arts, daughter Sarah joined the Dream-life! Now Sarah is the mother of two children, 11 year old Maya and 7 year old Macy. They provide a great deal of inspiration.

Shari and Sarah use the finest fabrics, and original designs to create heirloom quality, everyday-wearable dress-up clothes.  Our costumes are sold online, at craft shows, and at our studio in Waterloo by appointment.

While often imitated, Dreampower is proud to be:
the original dress-up costume company!

We hope you have as much fun with our costumes as we have had making them!
