Stellar Scholar is based on the wonder and endless possibilities of stars and the pursuit of the end of the universe for knowledge and creativity that they may inspire.

Outfits might look very put together and prim and proper much, however disheveled, messy, and chaotic appearances are permitted due to how one might look after studying, creating, or pursuing knowledge.

Elements of outfits usually include journals, notebooks, sketchbooks, backpacks, briefcases, messenger bags, waistcoats, dress shoes, pleated skirts, fitted pants, glasses, quill pens, or fountain pens.


The central themes and philosophy of Stellar Scholar include the pursuit of knowledge and inclusion of all as well as kindness to others, knowledge access for all, the ability for everyone to learn in their own ways, and work together to expand all knowledges.
