Momo Kariño Designs was founded in 2022, but Momo is not new to the art world. She is a cosplay veteran of 15 years, and a seamstress & apparel designer. When it comes to art, though, she has been drawing for fun for over 20 years! She has a minor in art and design, and a Bachelor's of Science in Apparel Design. Her experience as an artist include being an illustrator, graphic artist, technical designer, and lead pattern maker. Additionally, she served as a teacher assistant for the Fashion Illustration course at Purdue University while earning her degrees.


Some of her published illustrations include working on The Exponent, the leading newspaper at Purdue University. She also has had her art printed in convention program guides, such as for RamenCon, and designed the logo, tickets, and program book for the 2014 Purdue Fashion Show. Momo went on to design several other logos, such as one for

the Purdue Anime Club, and of course, all of her own cosplay and art logos as well! Her art has been featured on many the official social media pages of brands such as Neopets, DeviantArt, and more!


She has worked as a store hostess at Disneyland, Joann Fabric, Kohl's, and Charming Charlie, even going on to be hired on as an assistant manager for Charlotte Russe. In addition to her experience working brick and mortar retail, she has also promoted & sold for booths such as Funimation and Cosgear. On top of all of that, she has run several of her own e-commerce shops, such as with Etsy, Society 6, Red Bubble, and of course, her own shop here! Whether it be in the art world, cosplay world or "real" world, Momo brings a world-class level of engaging, upbeat interaction.

Professional Philosophy

Momo became closely involved with conventions and the geek community as a way to give back to a group that has shown her over a decade's worth of valuable lessons, and become like family to her. Be it through conventions or online, she is always eager to collaborate with those that share the same goal. Momo subscribes to five core values, and infuses these ideals into every aspect of her life. They are to:

Lead by Example, Embody Kindness, Advocate for Accessibility,

Fight for Diversity and Representation, and Support the Community
