Costume Designer / Sequin Connoisseur

Layne McGovern is the Costume Designer for all three seasons of Video Game High School as well as some of RocketJump’s shorts including Every 90's Commercial Ever, Skyhook, and Tie Fighter.

Layne graduated from FIDM’s prestigious Costume Design program in the midst of the 2007 Writers’ Guild of America Strike. To gain experience and build her portfolio, she started to style friends of hers for photo shoots. Eventually Layne’s expertise developed into costume design for a range of independent features, commercials, and photo shoots. At the recommendation of the production coordinator, she joined the crew of VGHS and the rest is history.

Layne has also worked as a set costumer on shows such as Girl Meets World, Dog With A Blog, and The Thundermans. She is also the costume designer on projects such as Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie and Epic Meal Time. Through RJFS, she is excited to share the world of costuming with a new audience and to explore what costuming means and how new emerging technology can affect it.
