TTSVC2 ~ Fangtasia

Another day, another great vampire book challenge! I hope you have read Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire series – if not, why?! At the very least, you must be watching (well, right now, waiting for) True Blood! Just a few more weeks now until TB returns, but in the mean time, we will celebrate another awesome vamp series with the Sookie Vamp challenge #2:

Welcome to Twilight Tuesday Sookie Vampire Challenge (TTSVC) #2!
This month we are drawing our inspiration from Fangtasia, Eric's vampire bar in Shreveport.
Craft Portion: Create a project that screams "Fangtasia,"!
Comment Portion: Would you go there? What would you expect to see there? Let your imagination run wild! This is Fangtasia we are talking about here!

I am all over this one! Mainly because I would flippin’ LOVE to go there! Especially if Alex Skarsgard really was Eric and he really was there! *sigh* Yeah, I would totally be there. We’ve discussed SHSVVs, haven’t we? Smokin’ Hawt Swedish Viking Vampires? I am, of course, drawing a lot of inspiration from the HBO series – I LOVE LOVE LOVE that show! – and I have to say that I envisioned Fangtasia to be exactly like Alan Ball and Co did for HBO! I love the way the vamps move – and those “go-go” dancing vamps were awesome! TTSVC2 Fangtasia I’d be completely enthralled by them… and let’s face it. Vamps are just hot. I’d love to vamp watch with an appletini, and if I was really lucky – hang out with Pam for a bit. Cause you KNOW I love Pam. Yep – I totally do. She’s cool. Anyway, here is my ‘poster’ – you know, the kind that show up by the thousands on campus around Thursday afternoon??? lol I had a terrible time photographing this! I found a wicked awesome graphic online, since I could not figure out the font to save my soul… and I printed it on acetate. It looks ridiculously cool in real life (modest much?) … if you look really (and I DO mean really) closely there are pictures of Pam and Eric ghosted in the background. I made a charm with the address on it – because how can you go to the hottest vamp bar in town if you don’t have the address?? And we all know that vamp Life Begins After Dark… I want to go to Fangtasia. Like, Now!

Has anyone been able to figure out what Font they used for the Fangtasia logo?? Alexander Skarsgard is hotter than the devil himself. I recommend watching him in Generation Kill and the new Lady GaGa music video

Beth said...

Sew - I couldn't agree more!! He is smokin'! LOVED Gen Kill and the Lady GaGa video was great as soon as he flipped her over the balcony! :) She shouldn't have been kissing on my man...
