Kumoricon Lite Event Hosts
A Portland native, Momma Sammu has been cosplaying for over a decade and attending sci-fi and fantasy conventions all her life. She attended her first anime convention at Kumoricon '06 when she was but a wee Sammu.
Momma Sammu has won over a dozen master level awards for skits and costumes in her 5 years of competing at cons across the country and internationally. Besides her hobbies in all things nerdy, she is also an avid performer and improv actor. She is very excited to take the stage as MC this year at her home con.
