I'd really like to take a moment to rant about what I've found to be one of the most unpleasant parts of being a bride-to-be (quite possibly the ONLY unpleasant part).

So today I picked up my wedding dress, and tried it on one more time to make sure nothing was damaged or dirty.
Now, this dress only came in one size, so it doesn't fit perfectly. The back only zips up about halfway, but is otherwise perfect. But when asked about putting a corset back into the dress, the dress store employee's first response was "oh, well you're going to be losing weight, aren't you?"
And THIS is what has driven me completely insane. Everybody and their cousin not only ASSUMES that you must be trying to lose weight, they will all but INSIST that you do. They make snide little comments about what you're eating, reminding you that "you have a dress to fit into".
What would ordinarily be considered major social taboo suddenly becomes totally acceptable, just because you now have a ring on your left hand.
I've not only experienced this firsthand, often from complete strangers, I've watched it happen to so many other engaged women. But it's unacceptable, and it needs to stop.

Time to face your nightmares.
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art

Welcome to Placebo FX Makeup - Horror, gore, and character special effects cinema makeup work, with an underpinning dedication to service.


Placebo FX Makeup is run by and consists solely of myself, Steph Koza.
I've been in the field for nearly six years now, and continue to love every minute of it.
With a specialty in horror and gore, I have done work in everything from aliens to fairies.
I've enjoyed doing custom makeup work for movies ranging from indie to full budget, and ranging from basic wounds to full non-human characters.
I also have a passion for scaring people half to death. As a result, I've been working in haunted houses as an actress since I was about quite young and have more recently been doing makeup for one of the top haunted houses in the state.

Now, I hope you enjoy taking a look through the various pieces of my work that are available in the photo galleries above. This is my passion, and I enjoy allowing people to take a walk through my, admittedly somewhat strange, mind.



I currently reside in a suburb of Los Angeles, CA, and actively commute to sites all over the LA basin and beyond.

Is there a way, with makeup, to enhance a healed scar from an oil burn and make it stand out?

You're a very good make-up artist. :)

Tell me, what do you like to be the most when you put on makeup, and why? :)

Not sure if you're aware of this, but one of your works is being spread under the guise of an actual rubber bullet wound in connection with the riots in Ferguson.
