Sammy Van Wye's love for cosplay started at a young age, and unbeknownst to her two mothers, gifting their daughter a sewing machine for her thirteenth birthday would send her on an exciting and creative journey that she is still on to this day. This passion for cosplay and sewing eventually led Sammy to study fashion and costume design for her higher education, which helped her secure her first industry job at the Disneyland Resort working in Entertainment Costuming. She worked on various parades, special events, and her favorite show, Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular. She began cosplaying with Chad in 2015. In 2016, Sammy, along with Chad and Jason of Hoku Props, competed in TwitchCon's first cosplay contest and took home the grand prize with their "Larger Than Life" Lionhardt cosplay from Blizzard's Overwatch.
