HBO has a good track record for shows that inspire products. (Exhibit A: Sex and the City.) Combine HBO’s marketing genius, a brilliant show, and a culture that loves a good sexy vampire, and you end up with a lot of weird things inspired by True Blood.
From the cool (like a makeup collab with Tarte cosmetics) to the kooky (nesting dolls and tattoos), True Blood influenced a lot of people to create a lot of really strange things. We don’t really understand why people wear things inspired by TV shows, but look at all the people with Bart Simpson tattoos–some shows and characters are just that memorable.
