CareerEdit

Creation of ShantaeEdit

In 1994, Erin had a flash of inspiration while coming back from her camp counselor days, and created a character named after one of the campers, Shantae. She also imagined that she could conjure animals or charm them with a dance, which would later be refined as the transformation dances. Matt liked the idea and picked the character fo flesh out the background and mythology.

Erin sported very long hair at the time and would often give a blow in Matt's face when she turned around. This inspired Matt for the Hair Whip, Shantae's trademark move.[1]

InfluencesEdit

Aside from the aforementioned encounter with a camper named Shantae, Matt Bozon has claimed that the main influence behind the character for Erin was the 60s TV sitcom I Dream of Jeannie.[4]
