About Manuge et Toi Design (Christina Manuge)

Hey there!

My name is Christina Manuge, and I am proud to be Canada's #1 Burlesque Costume Designer. I work under the name Manuge et Toi Design, and have been creating unique, luxurious costumes for burlesque performers all over the world, for over a decade.  

I’m SO THRILLED to be here, on Patreon. For years, I have been trying to figure out how I can help MORE burly babes to look and feel their best. Not everyone can afford couture-level costuming like what I offer through Manuge et Toi. But EVERY burlesque performer deserves the confidence that a beautifully made costume can provide. So, I’m here to help with that! 

My goal with this platform is to help you up your costuming game. Wether you’re doing it for yourself, or for others, I want to share my knowledge and experience with YOU. I’ll be offering tips, tricks, how-to’s, and even one on one consultations. While I’m at it, I’ll also provide extra special content for those of you who just want to see more Manuge et Toi!

If I could do all this for free - trust me - I would! But it’s just not realistic. That’s why Patreon is the perfect thing! With just a little help from you, I can be all I can be! Which, conveniently, includes sharing my wealth of knowledge and skills with you. How perfect is that?!

LOVE CHILD

The LOVE CHILD tier is a great way to get a taste of my teaching style, before investing in one of the more tutorial-heavy tiers.


This tier is born out love for my fans, and of sharing knowledge! 


In addition to special Patreon content (detailed below), this tier includes a bi-monthly treat! Every 8 weeks, I will share one awesome tutorial from my TIPS ON TAP archive. That tip will stay available for the whole 8 weeks, so you’ll have plenty of time to refer back to it, as you learn and improve on your newfound skills! 


This tier also includes:

  • Patron-only feed, including behind the scenes sneak peeks!
  • Previews  and pre-order offers on new made to order designs!


** PLEASE NOTE: Benefits from each tier are for individual use only. Sharing benefits, and/or sharing patron accounts, is unfair to the creator, and strictly prohibited. **

Consultation
Limited (1 remaining)
$50
per month

This tier gets us face to face, one on one time!


I'll dedicate 40 minutes per month, to video chatting with you about whatever you're working on. You can take it all in one go, or split it up into two parts, for a faster follow-up on your progress. 


No time for a face to face? You can also opt for consultation by email. Send me your questions, along with any relevant photos of your project, and I’ll use those 40 minutes to respond in writing. I may include drawings to illustrate my advice, and links to relevant information. 


I won't be revealing proprietary secrets, so please keep your questions respectful of my intellectual property.
