Monster High: Morta Bogey by YourRoyalAwesomeness Monster High: Morta Bogey by YourRoyalAwesomeness
Since I recently went to boot camp for my writing, drawing, and character development skills, I decided to give this little girl a shot. I've been developing her and her background for about a year or so now and I can finally say that I am happy with her.

Since there is no specific information on what exactly Boogiemen are or what they looked like, I shot off on the opportunity to create my own portrayal of them.

Boogiemen are hideous, demonic creatures who live off of the blood of children. Anyone who looks at the face of a Boogieman dies, that's why nobody knows what they look like. Basically, they are pretty much demons who reside in Hell and leech off of little kids. Boogiemen are raised not by the elders but by their environment. Since pretty much all the young ones are born in Hell, they grow up to be the monsters their parents are. Morta didn't grow up in Hell, though, so she's hugely flawed. She isn't (as) evil as most of her kin are, but still has the need to eat as any other. I've made it so that Boogiemen can live quite a few years without blood, however, if they do not feed before a certain time, they will die. So, basically, Morta is most likely going to die because of her conflicting morals.


I'm a ray of sunshine, I know.

HOORAY FOR CREEPY DOOMED BOOGIE GIRLS!! : D

I think you did a wonderful job on her! I really love her design and personality!
It's so true... there are so many versions and unknowns with Boogiemen that you can really take some creative control and do some amazing things!

I really like the whole face thing and...really all the headcanons you've created for her! ^-^ Great job! Oh! and the art is great too. I love that pose hehe

You're welcome! ^-^
I doooo! She's one of the best new oc's I've seen in a while!

I actually have a boogie girl for Mosnter High too and I had to make up my own headcanons with that xD She's a different type though... her father is the Italian boogieman and they basically...eat all the good dreams of young human kids and replace them with horrible nightmares. Of course,my oc is a half-blood since her mother was a human (looong story) BUT point is, it's amazing how many headcanons we can get from a singular idea.

Aww, thank you!! :iconjapanpastaplz:


Oh, that's cool! It reminds me of Hypno :iconhypnoplz: and Drowzee :iconpkmndrowzeeplz:! I agree! It's really interesting to look at the outcomes people can come up with with just one simple prompt. Boogieman, a monster who scares little kids - that's all we know for a fact. XD

hehhe yeah kinda does remind me of them too xD

It is! And it's even more cool knowing the variations that different countries have taken on that one creature. Like... the Boogieman in Thailand is completely different in look and nature than the one in Italy. And the Boogieman in Italy is an altogether different creature than the American one.
And some stories they come from abandoned imaginary friends and others were born into their boogieness like Morta here and my character!
Do you rp?

My favorite Boogieman from a different country is either Spain or Germany, they kind of go creepier than just the "he punishes children".

Yes, I do RP.

Ahhh yeah? xD My oc's dad basically knocks on the door of a house, forces his way in once the door is open and physically takes misbehaving children to his shack in the woods and use them as slaves for a full year. But the whole eating dreams for energy thing came from me xD

Awesome! I'd love to do some MH rp with you! Either here or skype... There's also a mh of tumblr thing

There was one where Boogiemen ate children, but I can't remember which country it was from.

STAHP IT :iconblushplz: YOU'RE SO FLATTERING. But I'd be honored to! :3

I have a Skype, so it would probably be easiest. XD Tell me your Skype.
