About Stephanie the Yarn Monster

Hi! I’m Stephanie the Yarn Monster.  You may have seen me running around conventions in my head-to-toe yarn cosplays.  Yes, it is warm under there.  Years ago I went through some tough times and slowly ended up cutting out all of my hobbies and interests from my life due to increasing anxiety and depression.  Eventually, I had a moment of realization that helped me to figure out how to move on from my depression and I have been slowly trying to re-establish my old hobbies and interests ever since.  Discovering my passion for knitting my cosplays certainly helped me to reclaim geekier aspects of my life.  That is why I will be writing about what I feel is important for me as a geek girl.  I’ll be writing about conventions, cosplay, local events – a little bit of everything I love.  And since I’ve got a Master’s in English Literature and Film Studies I can guarantee there will be book and movie reviews (LOTS of movie reviews).  So why a blog?  I’m an English major.  Some cosplayers prefer to model and take fantastic pictures for social media – I’m more of a wordsmith and I’d like the opportunity to get back into writing.  So join me as I explore this geeky universe for all the best life has to offer!
