Helium Heaven

Chloe with the letter HFor 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

Since I write horror stories and thrillers, it's not too shocking that my favorite holiday is Halloween. I love getting dressed up in fun costumes, like a fairy gothmother, a family of zombies, or Mrs. Peacock. Halloween and other scary stuff must inspire font designers as well, since the font site has a special section dedicated to Halloween fonts with almost 50 choices. Only a few of them actually start with the word Halloween (and therefore H), but it was still tough to pick just one representative. I decided to go with Halloween Spider because arachnids freak me out.

Although I'm not sure what the name Happy Roxy has to do with its look, I thought the design was really clever with all the letters formed from circles with sections carved out of them.

For this next one, the name says it all: Halfs are Enough Latin (although shouldn’t it be ‘halves’?). All of the lower case letters show only either the upper or lower half, yet it’s still easy to read. I think it’s amazing how our brains are able to fill in the gaps like that. 
Halfs are Enough Latin
 
It’s the same thing with Heartbroken. Although both halves are present, it seems like the jagged gap down the middle should make it difficult to read, but it really doesn’t because brains are awesome.

I’m going with another silly one for today’s tweet tale inspiration. The balloons of Helium Heaven have such goofy expressions as they’re twisted into letters that it just makes me grin to look at it.

Suzy loves Mickey but parents can’t afford trip to Disney. So they dress up like the chars, suck some helium, and make her birthday special.
 
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How Handsome is Chloe with her letter H?

I had no idea there were so many fonts available until I started reading your blog! Thank you for so much visual alphabetical creativity!

Haha, I looked at the pictures before I read the words, and I waited a full minute for the rest of those half words to load! :p

I love the Latin one...Latin gets a bad deal, it's saved my life in Brazil, as it does in fact, whenever I'm in any of the romance language countries. Of course, like everyone, I hated it at school.

Ooh! These are all so much fun!

Love the Halloween spiders - so jaunty!

And the 1/2s & the Roxy one are both so very clever.

Yeah, I'm amazed at how creative people get with making fonts.
