Jessi Arntz's fascination and love for costuming started at her first convention when she was thirteen. In 2008, she created her first costume; a suit of Mandalorian armor. She developed from there and after going to many conventions, and meeting many fascinating people across the spectrum of cultures became very involved with the steampunk community and started learning leatherwork.
Years and hundreds of leather hides later, she still strives to create incredible, themed works of wearable art and costumes that our customers proudly wear. Her company, JA Fantasy Art, loves to help people bring their original concepts to life and works hard to give costumers exactly what they need.
Most people in the steampunk community know her as Sonya Tyburn.
