Alien Fur

Freya with the letter A

For the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m having Fun with Fonts. Each day I’ll feature a few I like based on either the look of the font or its name. I’ll also pick a font to inspire one of my tweet tales
It’s tough to believe it’s already time for the A to Z Challenge again. It’s even tougher to believe I’ve signed up for this insanity for a third time, but here we are!
The first font I’m featuring is called Aquarium. I think it’s adorable, and each letter tells it’s own story. I especially love that most of the letters include a mischievous cat perhaps a tad too interested in the fish. 
The second one freaks me out a bit. It’s called Alpha Woman Hair, and all the letters are formed by a woman’s face and her long hair. Although it kinda gives me the heebie-jeebies, I appreciate the creative idea.

I picked the next one because of its name: A Yummy Apology. The beginning ‘a’ might be a bit of a cheat, but it’s listed with the other A Fonts, so I’m sticking to their categorization. Even though I think the swirls are pretty, I just loved the name, since it immediately gets me thinking of what a yummy apology could be and why it might be needed.

Next up is a name-look combo. While I like both the look and the name, I probably wouldn’t have picked either one if they hadn’t been paired together - Alien Sweater. Uh, what? The image of an alien wearing a sweater just makes me giggle. But this is the perfect name for this font, and I can’t imagine this font being called anything else, so the combo is a winner.

And sticking with the alien theme, my featured font is Alien Fur. Since I usually picture aliens with the ET or X-Files type slick skin, the name is immediately intriguing. And then the font itself looks just a bit wrong somehow. It also reminds me of the movie Splinter, which is an indie horror film that really creeped me out. Anyway, here’s my tweet tale inspired by Alien Fur:
Alien Fur
She adopted the dog after he appeared on her porch. Petting his fur calmed her, but the intelligence in his eyes always made her look away.
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? Have you seen the movie Splinter? How adorable is Freya with her letter A?

I never knew there's a site with 1001 free fonts! What planet have I been living on? LOL
LOVE your fun theme!
A yummy apology is simply... yummy!
Alpha woman hair is... creepy.
Freya is as cute as ever!

I'm a graphic designer so I love fonts! I gotta say, though, you'd have to have a very specific reason to use one of these babies!

Very clever idea! And I'm a bit of a font freak myself. I should check out the site.

Sharing fonts is a clever idea! These ones are interesting to say the least. I look forward to seeing what else you share. :)

I spotted the alien fur post when looking at A to Z posts on Twitter, so I had to stop by. It is a fun font indeed. I hope you have fun during the challenge.

Ok, I'll fess up. When I'm not being businesslike I use fonts which look like handwriting. Guess I'm just old school, huh?

A Yummy Apology is an old favorite. I haven't seen it for awhile though. I've used the Aquarium font before too. Or maybe it just lived on my computer. It was so long ago. Gotta love fonts! You can't stop at just downloading one.

Great fonts, am sending bloggers your way from my letter B post today.

I love ALL of these. Seriously. I want to adopt them all and take them home to play. =)

I love playing with fonts, too. I'm a retired graphic designer and picking fonts for particular projects was always a blast - although we rarely got to play with such fun stuff as Alien Fur because we worked for a newspaper and we were oh-so-serious!

Those were awesome and what a clever idea. I particularly like Aquarium.

Thanks, everyone, for dropping by! Glad to see you're enjoying the crazy fonts. And it's nice to see I'm not the only one who has fun trying out different fonts.

Donna, there should be enough fonts on the 1001 fonts website to feed your addiction for quite a while! :-)
