My kinda lady

The second most viewed post over on my old blog had been a style inspiration post (with no text whatsoever) with a thematic cohesiveness consisting of some of my favorite quirky female fictional characters. I’ve decided to revamp the old post here because I’m still so inspired by them all. The ladies have loads of style and some serious character.

First we have Vampira (played by Maila Nurmi). Vampira’s most notable film appearance may have been in Ed Wood’s craptastic film Plan 9 from Outer Space (which is one of those so-bad-it’s-good kind of movies), but she still totally nailed it. I mean, she even had her own show (besides having incredible cheekbones).

Next up is Morticia Addams (portrayed by Carolyn Jones in the 60’s television series, although I really like Anjelica Huston in film version as well). Morticia is the wife of Gomez Addams and mother of Wednesday, Pugsley and Pubert Addams in “The Addams Family”. She was created by cartoonist Charles Addams and apparently he based her on his first wife Barbara. I really like Morticia as a character because she’s very much herself and yet is part of a really weird yet surprisingly functional relationship. And she could rock a tight black dress like no other.

Last is Lily Munster (played by Yvonne de Carlo). The Countess of Shroudshire (daughter of Dracula), she is the matriarch of the Munster household, from the CBS sitcom The Munsters. Lily is a vampire but is also the voice of reason. And she had killer hair.
