Welcome to Geekphoria!

My name is Amanda, and I will be your blogess extraordinaire. In all reality, though, I’m just a life-long geek dying to share her love of video games, fantasy, sci-fi, crafting, and cosplay with the rest of Geekdom. By day I’m a mild-mannered political science Ph.D student, and by night I’m marathoning Star Trek on Netflix, sewing costumes and crafting props, and reading everything I can get my hands on.

I live with my boyfriend and my cat in Urbana, IL, in an apartment that my sister lovingly describes as looking like “a twelve-year-old boy lives there”.

Just a tiny bit of my nerd collection.

Find me online!

Geekphoria is my home planet, but you can also find me and my work on these other sites:

and Etsy Store Links

Please consider enabling me to keep producing excellent content and cosplay by donating to my Patreon account. I buy all of my cosplay and crafting materials, and each of the games I play on livestreams, and everything I review. Even most of my giveaways are items that I’ve bought for you, the readers! If you’re not comfortable supporting me through Patreon , here are some links to my and wishlists that can help offset some of costs I have in my quest to make the world great for geek girls everywhere!

I’m always looking for sponsors or people to run giveaways with me!

Here’s a picture of my cat. Hi, Duncan!
