Cosplayer & Artist Momo Kariño
I started cosplaying in 2007, but didn’t really start making my own stuff until 2011. I love cosplay because it is a great way to meet fans of my favorite series, and make friends. Additionally, I’ve always been an artistic person, so the crafting and art that goes into making cosplays and making scenic character photos is an enjoyable pastime for me.
Which character have you enjoyed cosplaying most so far?
This is always a tough one to answer, since I’ve done so many characters, and love them all for different reasons. But some of my top faves are Sailor Jupiter, Space Faerie, Tess, and Yoko.
Do you follow a beauty regime to look so beautiful?
Not particularly, I actually used to struggle with acne a lot, even well into adulthood. Switching to some Korean brand of skin care products versus the U.S. drug store brands I was using seems to have helped. I’m also quite fond of hydrating masks!
What is your favorite food or drink?
French fries probably are my favorite food, though not an entirely nutritious meal, haha. But on the flip side, I love me a good, healthy smoothie.
If you could have a super power, what will it be?
I always thought it would be cool to have “ghost powers” like Danny Phantom does. But idk, that’s a lot of power and responsibility haha. So maybe just the power to find all lost things, that would be sort of neat. I’m always losing things, so I think often about where they must have ended up. It’s like they disappear into thin air!
Are you more of a lingerie or bikini babe?
I love summer, swimming, and the beach, so it’s bikinis for me! Plus they’re generally more comfortable. Well, sometimes. XD
What turns you off on a date?
Whenever anyone seems to dismiss my hobbies and passions, or think they’re weird, it probably won’t work out. I like to say conventions and cosplay are “my full time hobby”, so if they want a “sexy cosplay GF” but think cosplay is something that only happens at comic con, they’re in for a big awakening…

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Momo. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I think sexy simply lies in confidence. Not just in one’s looks, but in everything else too. Of course, it is crucial to balance that confidence with humility, but ultimately, I think a lot of my admiration comes from seeing people just comfortably be themselves.
