Eye Candy = Inspiration

Hey there, so I'm just a bit excited today because I found some new inspiration and I just really really love it.

About a week ago there was a music video featured on Youtube. The video was from the channel MonsterHigh. Something about the look of the video intrigued me, so I watched it. I actually kind of liked it a lot. Today I did some more 'research' into what MonsterHigh is all about.

As far as I can tell, is a website for young girls. It is centered around a group of characters who are all the children of famous monsters and they attend high school at "Monster High". The website makes a series of 1 minute cartoons and they are posted on youtube at

I watched all of the episodes of the cartoon today and I just really liked it a lot. Mostly, I fell in love with the "style" of the cartoon. The colors and the outfits and the makeup on the characters is all just so much fun. It's all really girly and cute.

Here are the main characters of the cartoon:

These are some pictures of my favorite characters/outfits:

I really really want to make actual costumes of some of these outfits. They would be amazing for halloween! I am just excited because these cartoons have given me so much inspiration for makeup and nail designs and costumes. I'm excited to "play" with the inspiration I am getting from this. Anyway, that's all that I could think to share with you today.

Check out an episode of the cartoon:

...btw, today's quote from the book "365 Days to Let Go: daily insights to change your life" is here:

  1. I wish it was a real TV show. I saw the commerical on TV and wanted to know what it was about. It's really cute. If it came on TV I'd watch it. My favorite is the werewolf and the vampire.

  2. @Najela I know! I wish it was on tv, I would totally watch it! Or at least, if the episodes were longer, I don't mind watching them on youtube. I think Frankie's outfit is my favorite, but Lagoona is probably my favorite character.

  3. @Heather: Draculaura's outfit is really cute too. I think they should consider putting this on CN or Nickelodean. Or making more cohesive story line. There is a whole untapped market out there.

  4. I remember seeing the music video for this on the front page of Youtube a few weeks ago and checking the site. It's definitely interesting.

  5. Haha, they are like what would happen if Punkyfish bought Bratz.
