10 Most Attractive Female Characters from Cartoons

Do you love cartoons? We are sure you do. It is one of the best parts of our childhood – just watching “Transformers” or some crazy TV series from Nickelodeon for countless hours. Of course everyone has their own favorite characters and episodes. Our collection mostly consists of those good old legendary cartoons from the period of early 80’s to present time. Some of these beautiful girls (well, they’re not all actually girls but still we love them all) remind us of those good old days when the cartoons were made in a traditional way. Of course today’s 3D animation is really spectacular and well-performed but sometimes we miss that spirit of hand-drawn elegance and charm.

Below you’ll find our version of the top ten female characters from famous cartoons. We understand that tastes differ and will be glad to hear your variant of this list. These cartoons were the role models for many kids from all over the world and still are. So enjoy this list and maybe you’ll find your favorite one here.

Jessica Rabbit from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”

Tinkerbell from “Peter Pen”

Latte Art – Charming Coffee Designs

Latte Art is a trend that has become popular several years ago. The secret is simple – you have to stir espresso and steamed milk creating charming surface pattern or even design. Coffee foam art requires great skills but results are truly awesome. Today there are few international Latte Art contests where best artists (each of them is called “barista”) demonstrate their creativity and original performance. We thought that it would be a great inspiration for you people to see the collection of some of the most original examples of these amazing designs.

Wikipedia:
A barista (from the Italian for “bartender”) is a person, usually a coffee-house employee, who prepares and serves espresso-based coffee drinks.
