ANIMA! X

website bio picture

Nationally recognized as a musician, dancer, and costumer for the stars, Anima X has been delighting audiences for decades with her award-winning creations. An icon of the 1970s Manhattan punk scene, Anima’s band Xerox headlined the opening of the Mudd Club alongside the B-52’s. After the breakup of Xerox, she went on to form Animal and the Amazons, whose “June Brides” US tour reached such success as to merit a mention in the movie Party Monster. She can be seen in movies such as Sid and Nancy, Crocodile Dundee, and the Woody Allen film Stardust Memories.

As a fashion designer, Anima is a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Costumer’s Guild. Her costume credits for rock videos include Madonna’s Like A Virgin, Pat Benatar’s Love is a Battlefield, and Def Leppard’s Rock of Ages. She and her creations have been featured in spreads in the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, and Us Magazine, and on shows such as NBC’s Real People and CNN’s Fashion America.

Through her company I Believe In Fairies Productions, Anima is keeping the magic of faeries alive with her fantastical costume creations for the stage. She creates every facet of her unique family entertainment productions, from props to scripts to music. Since 1990, her shows have been seen at Disney, Six Flags, state and county fairs, and family festivals across the country. Her hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind fairy wings help children of all ages display their love of faerie magic to all who see them and inspire those around them to believe that beauty really can help return magic to our lives.
