Style Inspirations: Nicktoons

Like any child growing up in the 90's, Nickelodeon was the one channel I always watched. One thing I looked forward to watching were the cartoons or as they were called, Nicktoons. I still watch them from time to time and I thought that these characters would make great subjects for this weeks style inspirations.

Doug Funnie

Douglas Yancey "Doug" Funnie

Age: 11
Hometown: Bluffington
BFF: Porkchop and Mosquito "Skeeter" Valentine
Crush: Patricia "Patty" Mayonnaise
Nemesis: Judy Funnie, Roger Klotz, Mr. Bone
Favorite Band: The Beets
Alter-ego: Quail Man, Smash Adams, Race Canyon, The Chameleon, Durango Doug, Jack Bandit, Wafflestomper

Doug was the most straightforward character outfit to recreate. I ended up doing a more girly version of his sweater vest and khaki shorts outfit. This would be perfect to wear while running errands on the weekend. Also the feather necklace is a nod to Quail Man.



Species: Wallaby
Hometown: O-Town
Originally from: Australia
BFFs: Heffer Wolfe and Filburt
Works At: Kind of a Lot O' Comics
Hang Out Spot: Chokey Chicken

For Rocko, instead of having the triangle motif on his clothing, I wanted to transfer it to the accessorizes, with the earrings and ring. I did stay true to the color scheme though when it came to his top and shoes. I also added the skirt because unlike Rocko, you can leave the house bottomless.

Angelica Pickles

Angelica Charlotte Pickles

Age: 3
Hometown: Somewhere in California
BFF: Cynthia
Nemesis: Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, Phil and Lil DeVille, and Susie Carmichael
Nicknames: Princess (by her dad), Yucky (by baby Dil)

I mimicked the bows on the dress from the bows in her hair. Instead of trying to find blue and polka dot green tights, I used the earrings and purse in place of that. Plus I'm thinking that when Angelica got older, she would have acquired a Chanel purse. Most likely from her mom.

Sponge Bob Square Pants

Sponge Bob Square Pants

Species: Sea Sponge
Lives: Bikini Bottom
Occupation: Fry Cook at the Krusty Krab
BFF: Patrick and Gary
Nemesis: Squidward 
Hobbies: Jelly-fishing and blowing bubbles

No tie for Sponge Bob here, but I did replace it with the necklace where it looks like some of the charms are tie shaped. Although this outfit would look well with a Krusty Krab hat.

I'm so glad you've started doing these as a regular feature, they make me want to start dressing completely in character inspirations. I'm really loving Angelica's outfit inspiration. It's so bright and that dress is gorgeous!
