three different frames with red shoes on them and the words, valentine's day
My double-sided Lunar Chronicles bookmark. As of now we have 2 non-evil candidates for the Lunar crown. Who's it gonna be? Can be sized down to 2x8, blew it up for display/reading ease. All images are property of Marissa Meyer or in the public domain.
a white robot with blue eyes standing in front of a sign that says i love you
and lastly, as of 9:37pm PST on 8/31/13, a cute captioned pic of Iko, everyone's favorite robot. I chose that font specifically so I could make it look as if her name had been engraved on her stomach.
the word la lunasisis written in blue ink on a black background
This pin about the blue plague uses a font that involves skulls and disintegrating letters. How can this not fit? It totally fits. I love this font! It just screams "beware of blue death."
the words i've got some news for you fembots have feelings too
This isn't from Marissa Meyer's playlist, but from a comment on the blogpost ABOUT her playlist. A fan recommended this song, with this quote, and Marissa approved it in a response comment. So I used it here. I also used this computer-font since the song is about robots.
the words keep calm and wear a red hoolie are shown on a black background
I wish I had one! That font is "French Script." Who do we know from France? *cough* Scarlet *cough*
an image of a woman holding a cat in her arms with the caption, let's fish fishing hard
this is a beautiful piece of artwork I found a little bit ago when I Googled "The Lunar Chronicles." I added the quote from the song "Little Red Riding Hood" by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, which is about how the wolf really loves Red, but is afraid of scaring her off. "Little Red Riding Hood, I'd like to hold if I could, but you might think I'm a big bad wolf so I won't."
an orange light is shining on the face of a young woman with brown hair and yellow eyes
Using a picture of Ellen Paige with the font LCD (liquid crystal display) displaying a quote about Cinder's lie detection. I used 3 shades of the same hue of orange (a tint over the contoured letters, a shaded glow around the words, and an orange in between for the light appearing in Cinder's right eye).
an image of some type of text that is in the style of video game characters
Modified "Nerd Girl Problems" pin. I chose the Scarlet font for its bestial look (and made the red brighter than the font around it for effect). I used a modified form of Tangled (from the Disney film) for Cress. "Winter" drips ice. I made the background gradient by hand using math, color-mixing, & Photoshop to simulate the book covers. I applied a reverse-gradient as an outline to make the fonts pop.
the blue light text is made up of trees and branches, with one word below it
I chose this font because it just LOOKS icky. Doesn't it? Sickly and rotting and gross? The blue sort of off-sets this (imagine if I made it mottled and used my favorite sick-green-yellow coloring) but I made it blue because it's the Blue Plague. I love this font, though. It's just so...sick.
the words are written in green ink on a black background
This is a quote from a song on the Cinder playlist, according to Marissa Meyer's blog. I love Muse! I made a series of song-quote pins using fonts that simulate handwriting, because I imagine Ms. Meyer hearing this song, thinking, "OMG, this one!" and writing it down in her notebook so she doesn't forget. I chose the sickly green color here, however, because the quote has such a sad tone to it, so heartbreaking and a little bitter. =(
a man sitting down in front of a wall with his hand on his hip and looking at the camera
Another potential (and very handsome and charming) actor who could play Thorne if they make him look a touch younger - Ryan Reynolds (with a funny quote). I chose this particular font because I associate the character of Thorne with lettuce (due to his rampion-class ship).
a black and white photo of a man's face with hair blowing in the wind
Alex Pettyfer as Jacin, the young Lunar bodyguard. I have heard rumors that he may be the love interest for Winter, and if that's true (given what little we know of him right now) I imagine he'll be placed in the position of Huntsman in the adapted Snow White tale. Thus, with the black and white photo, I chose a deep blood-red for my font, because I associate those 3 colors with Snow White very heavily.
a young man in a sweater looking at the camera while leaning against a brick wall
Shane West (sweet, handsome, and very charming) as Captain Carswell Thorne. Except he's not really a captain, but he did steal a ship, and he is quite the sweetheart (if a little ridiculous). So I call him a gentleman thief. I used the color green because his ship is a Rampion-class, and rampion is a type of lettuce.
a man standing in front of a white wall with the words wolf on it's side
Shiloh Fernadez as Wolf. I call him "Selene's Champion" because at the end of Scarlet it is decided that he's going to teach Cinder how to fight. I use shades of gold because I associate gold (in conjunction with black) with good wolves.
A very handsome young man who would make a GREAT Kai. I used the logo BlackHole because it's strong, sharp, and reminds me of a less-feminine form of the Lunar Chronicles font on the book covers. I used crimson and gold because those colors are very prominent (and good luck) in Chinese culture. Inspiration, Book Boyfriends, Young Man, Chinese Culture, Kai, Handsome
