Episode 8 Dawn Climie Costume Set Supervisor

Dawn Leigh Climie is a Costume Set Supervisor with over 24 years of experience. After graduating from the NAIT Apparel Design program, Dawn began her career in local theater and independent films.

In 1992 Dawn received a scholarship to the Banff School of Fine Arts. There she learned the history of costuming and enhanced her skills as a seamstress with a concentration in 1800’s era ladies dress.  For the next few years, Dawn applied her passion and honed her skills on period films
while working in Alberta. In 1996, a chance to work on the feature film THE THIRTEENTH WARRIOR allowed Dawn to relocate to Vancouver.
While in Vancouver, Dawn has built a resume of over 100 film and TV projects including
the film TRON LEGACY, the TV movie ONCE UPON A MATTRESS, with costumes by
Chris Hargedon and Bob Mackie, the homegrown feature FORSAKEN, produced by and
starring Kiefer Sutherland, and the award winning TV series ONCE UPON A TIME with
Emmy nominated Designer Eduardo Castro.

The honor of working with Emmy, BAFTA, Costume Designers Guild, and Academy
Award winning Costume Designers Ellen Mirojnick, Michael Kaplan, Shay Cunliffe and
Mark Bridges on the films THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK, MIAMI VICE, MISSION
IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL, THE BOURNE LEGACY and 50 SHADES OF
GREY, has allowed Dawn to work in locations as diverse as the Dominican Republic,
the Eastern US Seaboard, Prague, the Philippines, Dubai, Paraguay, the ice glaciers of
Kananaskis, Alberta, and of course, beautiful Vancouver! Dreams do come true.:)
In 2013 Dawn started the blog, DON’T SHOOT THE COSTUMER in hopes of sharing
her love of costuming and some of the tricks of the trade she has picked up over her
career. It’s a way for Dawn to put into action one of her firmest beliefs… empowering
education, sharing and passion in our industry creates excellence in our community
