Awards & Honors


🏆 Here are some of the awards I've won for my cosplays! 🏆


Some have been awarded in honor of my construction techniques, needlework, or presentation of character or skit performance. The awards listed here are from conventions only, but some of my other costumes have also earned special honors. Explore the rest of my site to see which others have also snagged an accolade!

You may notice that from 2011-2020 my awards are addressed to Momo Kurumi,

my former name. 2021 marks the first year in which I am known as Momo Kariño.
