Stephanie is the protagonist of LazyTown.

Description

"Stephanie is a sweet, optimistic girl who's just moved here to live with her uncle (the Mayor of LazyTown). She's our audience's point of entry - the new arrival, a stranger who's trying to figure out this new place and its crazy ways. Sympathetic and curious, Stephanie likes her new town; it's weird but fun. She's an aspiring dancer, so she appreciates the fantastic moves that Sportacus performs.

Because she wasn't raised in LazyTown, Stephanie doesn't struggle with basic health issues like the other kids. Instead, she's trying to figure out how to stay true to what feels right for her while surrounded by the unhealthy behaviors of her new friends.

Stephanie is positive, curious, affable, and able to learn from her mistakes. She sees her life as a grand adventure. One where she can try new things, makes new friends, and sometimes hangs out with a hero! Hey, even when the chips are down, she holds to her motto: "There's always a way!"" — LazyTown.com

Personality

Stephanie is bubbly, optimistic, friendly, and always has a smile ready. She is easy to get along with, and has lots of energy. Stephanie isn't without her flaws, though. At times she can have trouble with making the best decision, but Sportacus is usually there to help her make the right choice. Some of Stephanie's favourite things to do are dancing, singing, playing sports, and hanging out with her friends, especially Sportacus.

Appearance

Stephanie wears a dress with pink stripes, which are different shades of pink. She also wears pink sneakers and has several pink bracelets on her right wrist. She also wears a dark pink headband with silver sequins and pink socks (and in Energy Book, pink leggings). Besides pink clothing, Stephanie has bright pink hair, which is in the classic bob style. She also has fair skin and brown eyes. Every now and then, Stephanie will change her outfit, but almost all of her outfits are pink. Sometimes Stephanie will wear a light pink hooded sweatshirt with her name across the front in stylized purple lettering.

Character Development

Stephanie hasn't changed a lot in the stage plays and the show. In Áfram Latibær she was a stiff and weak girl who wished to do a split. Sportacus helps her by teaching her ways of stretching out her muscles to eventually do a split. We see her later on being able to kick her legs up and magically do a split. In Glanni Glæpur í Latabæ, she most resembles the TV version of Stephanie. She is in her pink style, and she is very flexible. We also see her perform Bing Bang for the first time here.
