ATTENTION: We sincerely apologize, however, due to an emergency Steff will not be able to attend Anime Austin this year.
Steff Von Schweetz is a self-taught seamstress, tailor, makeup artist, and all around crafter currently residing in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Steff began making costumes back in 2003. Through years of trial and error, they improved their craft and began to enter costume contests, judge masquerades, run panels, and be a guest for conventions. Steff is a firm believer that you can do anything through hard work and continuously pushing yourself. Since their start, Steff has made over 300 costumes for themselves and others. Their work has been featured in films (Wish I Were Here), magazines (Cosmode, MangaBomb, OtakuUSA, and others), and several websites (Nerdist, Microsoft, Kotaku, i09, and more).
Within the community, Steff strives to bring awareness to issues they’re passionate about including: LGBTQ+, gender representation, and body image struggles. They hope to keep the community as positive and open to all who might want to join. However, outside of costuming, Steff’s favorite pass time is annoying friends with their love of Neon Genesis Evangelion.
