Groovy Ghosties

Bailey with the letter GFor 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

I know most of these fonts are more fun than practical, but I can’t think of any real world reason to use my first G font pick … except for the fact that it’s adorable. Grazing On Grass has letters that look like they are either hedge sculptures or grass mowed into letters. But that’s not enough to make it stand out – the font creator then adds cute animals nibbling on the vegetation. Tiny, charming cows and sheep surround the letters enjoying a nice meal. Completely impractical, yet 100% cute. (To make it fit, the letters ended up pretty small, so you might want to click the link to see it big enough to make out the animals.)

I picked the Gotcha font because I really like the 3-D look of it.

And then I picked Ginger Snaps because I like all the swirls and curlicues. Plus I love gingersnap cookies and think Ginger Snaps is an awesome werewolf movie.

For Galaxy 1, I really like the way the look and the name of the font work together. The letters not only have a futuristic shape to them, but the random pattern of white dots really does make it look like gazing up into the stars.

For my tweet tale inspiration, I’m picking Groovy Ghosties, mostly because it makes me giggle. It’s probably supposed to be a creepy font, but the expressions on their silly, little faces just makes me laugh.

Most people living in haunted houses deal with moans & the smell of dirt, but our ghost died in the 70s, so we get disco beats & patchouli.
 
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How Gorgeous is Bailey with her letter G?

Ohhh, I like gingersnaps a lot! It appeals to the feminine girly girl in me. Oh, I looked at the previous comment and it looks like we are like minds.

My daughter is a cow lover who would adore the grazing on the grass. LOL. I went hiking the other day in cow country and I'm sort of over cows for a bit. :-)

Happy A to Z!

I love the ginger snaps one. I can see it being a rom-com cover font.

Ginger Snaps! Okay, there's a font I want to take home and keep forever. I'm such a curls girl.

I really like the Grazing on Grass - very cute, and I also like the Ginger Snaps - very pretty, and I like ginger snap cookies. I like to use different fonts for different characters when I'm writing. It helps me keep track and develop their personalities to choose a font that suits them.

I saw that you're in Summerville, SC. My great grandparents lived there. :-)

I could definitely see myself using Ginger Snaps often. I love groovy ghosties as well. Those faces are too adorable!

Groovy Ghosties is adorable but I can't imagine reading much in that harder-to-read font. But how is it that Ginger Snaps font makes me want to sit down with a glass of milk and dip those letters in?

I love the Groovy Ghosties, since I love ghosts and ghost stories. I also think it looks more cute than creepier.

Those groovy ghosties are so funny! I love all your picks. I enjoy making images sometimes and one of my favorite things is choosing the font. :)
