31 Days of Sensational Shops - Nerdy Monsters

31 Days of Sensational Shops is a month long tour of geeky, fantasy and/or monster-filled shops in December. Please stick around to learn more about today's Sensational Shop!

Today's Sensational Shop is Nerdy Monsters - run by Jennifer Sargent!

Tell us about you - the creator!

Hi, I'm Jenny. I'm a 20-something who has far too many creative ideas swimming around her head at any given time. I love making things; crafts, videos, photography, stories, etc. I live in Los Angeles with my boyfriend and for fun I like to see local bands, explore the city with my friends, and make art.

Describe your shop and what you sell

My main shop, Nerdy Monsters, is where I sell my plushie creations I make by hand. I've been experimenting with making accessories, hats, buttons, and more. Whether you want to dress your geek chic best or snuggle up to collectable cute friends, Nerdy Monsters has you covered.

What is your favorite item to make? Why?

I love sewing plushies the most. They may not be as 'useful' as the accessories, but creating characters with personalities and stories is so much fun. I spend time and care creating each and every one.

How and when did you start your business?

I have been making my own costumes and creations for years. I make my own patterns and imagine up unlimited amounts of characters. It only seemed natural to start to share that with the world.

Anything else you would like to add?

Each Nerdy Monster is a big fan of something. Harry Potter, Doctor Who, you name it! I take requests and custom orders if you can't find a Nerdy Monster that shares your passion. I'm also working on a project called Magic Cats. So far all I can say is that they are all one of a kind designs. No two will look the same. Feel free to ask me any questions! 

Where can buyers find you?

Thank you so much for coming by and meeting Jennifer Sargent of Nerdy Monsters! Tomorrow will be another Sensational Shop! Don't miss out!
