Voodoo Dolls

Lily with the letter VFor 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

Although I’ve already featured a blood-dripping-down-the-wall font, I knew as soon as I saw it that I had to include Vampyrish ABC. Not because of the design (although the bat is a nice touch, it’s still a pretty average horror font) but because of the name. Now I know it’s supposed to be pronounced vam-pire-ish, but to my eyes it's totally Vampy Rish. Y'all, it’s a font named after me because I’m a vampy Rish! Okay, I’m actually pretty much the opposite of vampy, but it’s still fun. And Vampy Rish is now the new name of my alter ego who is brave, bold, and doesn’t care what other people think.

I think it’s nifty that even though the letters are on their side with Vertigo it’s still extremely easy to read. The brain rocks.

Now Vaticanian Initials is harder to read, but I really like the fancy look of the letters. Clink on the name link to see the details in the larger version.

While scrolling through the fonts, I’ve seen several in the style of graffiti tags, but most of them were difficult to decipher. VTKS Street Vision has the look of a tag while maintaining readability.

One of my favorite short films is Sebastian’s Voodoo (I even wrote about it for an A to Z post my first year), so of course the font inspiration for today’s tweet tale is Voodoo Dolls

What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How Vivacious is Lily with her letter V?

OMG - these are all so cute! Vertigo is a clever one. Vampyrish and Voodoo dolls make me smile! :)

I like Vaticanian Initials best, though it would ideally only work on a title page, without so much text to read.

I'm that pretentious person who uses the original spelling Vampyre, so I love the name Vampyrish ABC. Perhaps hypocritically, I don't like the original spelling of fairy, faerie.

I like VIKS Street Vision! I write articles for my "day job," so when I'm writing fiction, I'll often use a fancy, handwriting-style font. It brings out the creative in me. Of course, I change it to boring Times New Roman before sending it to my agent, but nobody sees it but me while I'm writing!

These are great! You're right about the Unicorn font--kinda plain. :-)

By the way, I fixed my comments. Thanks for letting me know about that!

Have a great evening!

The font love was pretty spread out this time with no clear winner. As always, I appreciate you stopping by!

Font's are wonderful Jocelyn, they seep to have appeal and a life of their own. I suspect this is what happens when the feather is dunked into the well.
