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:

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?
