Who is Melanin Squared?

Hey everybody! We’re best friends who work toward bringing more positive, Black representation to the nerdy community. We cover conventions, cosplay, entertainment, and even some food and travel! We also started Squared Cookies, a vegan cookie box. Keep reading to get to know us a little better!


Lo-fi connoisseur, Undercover Otaku

Hey, it’s Coco! Big Nerd on the outside and an even bigger nerd on the inside. A lil’ fact about her: She LOVES Japanese culture. Anime, manga, cosplay, music, and food! Her wanderlust and a huge appetite for adventure mean you’ll never catch her in one place for too long. She’s a Pisces, so she goes with the flow like a Waterbender. Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu ^^


Slytherin, Life Lover

Marrista is the vegan baker behind Squared Cookies. When she’s not baking her time is spent outside, making magic, or exploring one of many crafty hobbies. She’s just a meditating closet-gamer who wants to connect through are and anime.

Squared Cookies

Vegan cookie boxes

Squared Cookies was dreamed up by Marrista through her passion for baking. A life-long love of sweets followed her into veganism and now she aims to share the sweet side of vegan life.
