Sami is a 6 yr old cosplayer. She has been cosplaying since she was 3. She is a member of Star Wars Galactic Academy and Costumers With a Cause. She does charity and community events with those groups (including 501st, Rebel Legion and Mandalorian Mercs) and likes to attend comic conventions. Sami has been featured by many of our favorite “geek/nerd” sites. She has a huge love for Bell 3D bike helmets and incorporating them into her cosplays with roller skates. Her biggest fandoms are Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Disney, Toy Story, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Scooby Doo and Big Bang Theory. That is the narrowed down list! lol! She also loves to watch videos on Youtube that other children make.
The BEST part about this journey has been making friends all over the world and Sami learning how great it feels to be able to give back and help other children! We are so happy to have Sami as a valued member of Costumers With A Cause and for everything she does to help children and their families. Thank you, Sami!

Meeting STAN LEE at C2E2 2017. I was so nervous and shy. He is my favorite celebrity. He even put his arm around me and gave me a side hug. My mom says I am very lucky!
Who is your favorite superhero?
Supergirl. She saves lives, she can fly AND she has a awesome costume!
What is your favorite place to visit?
Florida, Gulf of Mexico…the beach. It’s so sunny and warm. I like seeing the dolphins and one even swam around our paddle board. It went back and forth underneath it. That did freak me out a little though because it was so big and I didn’t trust my mom that it was NOT a shark! Lol! I also love trying to catch the lizards. It’s also fun to dive for sand dollars.
Where do you WANT to visit some day?
California! One of my mom’s best friends lives there and I like her and her kids alot. They have visited us here in Wisconsin but I have not been to California. I also made a new friend named Sloane through Instagram and our shared love of Star Wars. We are pen pals and we are going to visit her this summer. I can’t wait!
What was the nicest thing you did for someone?
I gave almost all of my Halloween candy to my older brothers and sisters.
What do you like best about doing charity work?
It’s fun to do with my friends even though most are grown ups, they are still a lot of fun. I also like helping the little kids.
