James Hayes supplied Earl Sinclair's fetching dresses on Dinosaurs.

James Hayes is a costume designer who joined the Jim Henson Company for Dinosaurs, creating outfits for the Sinclair Family in different situations (ceremonial wear, formal, drag), as well as costuming guest characters (such as Pearl Sinclair) and alter-egos (Earl as Captain Impressive).

Hayes subsequently worked on Muppets Tonight and was one of the many Muppet Workshop artisans whose quilt work was showcased in the book Quilting with the Muppets. Outside of Henson, he worked on the puppet series The Puzzle Place (earning a Daytime Emmy nomination for best costume/styling) and Imagination Movers (building characters). For the 1996 film Ed, Hayes was credited as tailor to the titular, animatronic chimp.
