Richard’s still running… And there’s another batch of crazy…

I’m continuing the Run Richard! project.

We’ve has some great ideas so far, you can check out the original post HERE and the first batch HERE.

I’ll start of with Joanna’s idea which she sums up by saying:

 “ja przyczepiłabym mu łyżwy ;)

Translation (-ish): stick some skates on the man!

I think someone feels winter is coming…

And if Richard feels a tad frozen over, I can think of at least a handful of ways I could warm him up 😉

On the topic of cold, Richardiana mentioned that:

“I’d really like to see him running towards something with such enthusiasm, even if it’s only a big bucket of chocolate ice-cream.”

How about an Ice Cream (Girl) Sundae?

Man, is this the wrong image to be fiddling with when you’re trying to watch what you eat!

Talking about forbidden fruit, Luciana shared the opinion of many RA fans when she said that:

“I imagine him running away from the producers of Fifty Shades of Grey… ;-)

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank her to making me have to google “s&m dungeons” and such.

 What is seen cannot be unseen and some things are not going to get erased that quickly…

I think he’s running the right way, right?

I’m no kink specialist, but I think I’d be afraid to spank Richard.

What if I damage that lovely bum!?!

Last but not least, Perry mentioned that running Richard is:

” grace on wings”

Time to channel some Hermes (the god, not the handbags), me thinks!

I have it on good authority (meaning the internet…) that Hermes was a messenger who was smart and playful.

He’d have to have one hell of a sense of humour to wear those kick-ass sandals!

I’ve had a great time fiddling with Richard, even if it was merely his image!

Thanks so much to all of those who have contributed, as always it’s the readers that make silly projects like these fun 🙂

Run Richard! Reader’s Ideas!

Thanks so much for all your ideas as to why Richard is flexing his thigh muscles and legging it!

I’m still collecting new ideas so feel free to drop them in comments.

Here are some of your suggestions from yesterday 🙂

First up, i.f. suggested that Richard channels some classic Hollywood charm.

Her brief was:

“Isn’t there a biplane chasing after him? I would love to see Mr. A. in a remake of North by Northwest.”

Wouldn’t we all love to see Richard running across fields dodging planes!

Here’s a poster from this gripping thriller:

Next up, Guylty is still not ready to put the cat/dog dispute to bed (although I think she’s about ready to put Richard between the sheets…), so she said:

“how about a cat behind him and a dog with open arms in front???”

I thought maybe we could push that idea a little further.

My sincerest apologies to those suffereing from Ailurophobia (an acute fear of cats).

Guylty made me do it, so you guys sleep tight tonight 😉

Beware of the cats Richard Armitage_edytowany-1

Perry suggested that Richard shouldn’t be running away from something.

“You can have him running towards your pin-up girl – I can’t see him running towards the empire state building..”

How about Richard running towards a sexy Pin Up standing (-ish) by the Empire?

Richard Armitage flowers pin up

All I can say is that is one lucky Pin Up Girl and I bet she’s happy she put on her good undies 😉

Kitty chose a different route:

“Upon his early arrival to the airport, he discovers that one-forty-three flight was really elven-thirty-four (dyslexia strikes again) and he must now make a mad dash for his gate.”

I bet being late for planes is something Richard is probably accustomed to.

Heck, maybe that’s where he gets those burly thigh muscles!

That’s one suitcase I wouldn’t mind rummaging through…Richard Armitage running through airport1

Will he make it?

I hope so, especially that he clearly has nothing to declare!

I do however declare that Richard is one hot piece of a…. anyway, moving swiftly along…

Last up for today Arkenstone suggested I:

“I see him running away from just female hands and holding screenplays (and maybe a few high heeled feet) at the bottom that have all the names of movies we think he should be in…Poldark, 50 shades of Grey, that Potato one, some silly ones…”

This was a tough one.

I couldn’t get Richard to hold anything and trying to stick books into hands just didn’t work.

I though that maybe I’ll approach this idea in another way.

Richard is running towards Hollywood, but there’s someone always grabbing at him and wanting something.

The hands are beyond creepy though, but at least the camera is aiming in the right direction 😉

That’s all I have for today, but I hope to be back tomorrow with more suggestions as to why Richard is running.

Keep those ideas coming 🙂

Run Richard, Run! But what’s he running from/towards?

Empty Lucas Running insert idea

I really enjoy getting ideas from the comments my wonderful readers leave, so I want to try something new today.

I’ve used the image of Lucas North running many times.

There’s something about how Richard’s body looks in motion that makes me want to cry out a Hallelujah!

Just look at those thighs and that junk in his trunk!

I could send hours fiddling with this image and, actually, I have.

I’ve had Richard running with dogs:

And running away from dragons:

Now I want to hear YOUR IDEAS!!!

What is Richard running away from?

What is Richard running towards?

Leave your ideas in comments and remember, the dafter the better and nothing is too out there!

Give as much info as you can to help me, maybe a little background story or link to a photo, and I will do my best to PS your ideas and post them throughout the week 🙂

To start us off, here’s Bilbo Baggins, the ultimate fangirlhobbit, chasing after Richard for an autograph!

Honestly, I can’t blame the amorous Halfling, that’s more or less what I’d look like!

I can’t wait to see what you crazy lot will come up with!!!

Stereotype Sunday: Je t’aime Richard!

I’m continuing on my theme of Stereotype Sunday and it will come as no surprise that I’m tacking the French today!

Viva la France!

French Armitage 1_edytowany-1

I’ve taken the stereotypical elements associated with the French: The Eiffel tower, sexy French man drinking wine, baguette’s and fine art.

We were in dispute regarding the onions but Magzy summed it up by saying: Well, can’t someone see this whole project as bit offensive…

We left the onions out.

French Armitage 2

The ridiculous moustache had to stay though!

Do we know if Richard speaks French?

Many British children learn it at school, so there’s a chance he has at least some elementary knowledge and the thought of it has me yelling: Oooo lala!

I love the sound of French.

You might be saying: “There’s an oversized ferret canoeing in out toilet bowl while waving the EU flat” and it still sound sexy 😉

We know he’s given Russian a shot (and had a shot of Russian vodka) and bless him for trying!

This is an on-going project so if you have any other national stereotypes you’d like to subject RA to, pop it in comments and I’ll do my best to be an equal offender 😉

Tha gaol agam ort Richard!

Scottish flag Armitage

Today’s Stereotypical Sunday was suggested by Nadia who longed to see Richard frolicking in the Highlands.

What do Scottish men wear under their kilts?

As always Richard probably knows but he’s not telling!

Then again, some say that if men wore anything under kilts they’d be wearing skirts 😉

 Richard is a Skinny Malinky Longlegs from the north, although not that far north, but he sure has the pegs to decorate a kilt!

scottish Armitage

I’ve used the stereotypical elements of the kilt, bagpipes and a beautiful glen, but I passed on the haggis as it just refused to mingle with the other elements…

Talking of Scotland, there’s also something a bit Braveheart about Thorin, could be the hair, could be the dodgy garb or the yelling…

They both believe: Gie it laldy! (you should do things with gusto).

Armitage Braveheart 1

Whit’s fur ye’ll no go past ye, Richard!

Going from Silly to Stereotype Sundays?

Magzy asked me the other day whatever happened to Silly Sundays.

I think it’s 90% of post content here could be described that way so that didn’t make Sunday any special.

My mind went from Silly to Stereotype Sunday, inspired by Ms S’s love of German beer.

Armitage, Bavarian lederhosen, sounds like a winner to me!

International Armitage flags

So I’ve decided to take stereotypes of some countries and used them to objectify beautify our dear Richard!

This will be an ongoing project, so if there’s any other stereotypical features or garb of a specific country that you’d like to see RA plonked in, drop them in comments with suggestions on which feature to highlight.

It’s all a bit of fun, so I don’t want anybody huffing and puffing ready to blow this blog down, I don’t drink vodka much, nor do I have beached hair or eat kiełbasa.

Today we will start with German Armitage!

German Armitage

We know that Richard has the legs for these shorts and socks, he’s also been photographed nursing an oversized beer in his younger years.

I’ve taken the most stereotypical features like the full Bavarian outfit, beer, beautiful mountains, Octoberfest, pretzels, and some dog shape wurst because obviously no German household would be complete without it…

By the way, I met two Armitage fans in London last year in December and they were both wearing lederhosen which I felt was quite extreme seeing that it was very frosty that day…

OK, they weren’t, but wouldn’t it have been fun?  😉

Zum Wohl! Armitage Friends!

Richard Armitage Coiffure Take 2

BAFTA-LA-02 

Two Richard Armitage Hair posts in a row is just sloppy blogging, but what’s a fangirl to do?

This could’ve been avoided had Richard emailed me and shared his intentions of walking the red carpet sporting a beyond sexy do!

Next time I hope you’ll be more considerate Richard!

BAFTA-LA-04

I can’t fixate on the Poldark news until it has been fully confirmed, but maybe we’ll get another round of Armitage as a romantic hero in a BBC costume series, hence the style!

Be still my heart and try to take in the Armitage coiffure beauty without bursting into flames!

No hard feeling though Mr Armitage, your look tickles my lady bits and I most certainly give it my two trembling thumbs up.

It’s a bit of a Brazilian blowout and I refuse to believe you can just step out of the shower, run you’re fingers through it and be off.

There’s no wash and go here!

Visually the do is stunning but I’m withholding passing ultimate judgement until I am able to run my fingers through it!

Is is soft and smooth or more crunchy from hair products?

As much as I approve of Richard’s hair, here are some other styling ideas he may want to consider:

He may want to channel the lovely Dawn French and get himself a Dibley vicar haircut

If that’s a little too conservative, how about a little Justin Beiber (minus the baggy pants and brat behaviour)?

R6

Oh Baby, baby, baby Yeah!

Billy Idol anyone?

R4

It feels like a good day for a white wedding, let me just go grab my veil and I’ll meet you at the altar…

If punk is less your thing and metal is where your tastes lie, how about some rock classic

R1

And my favourite, the artsy take on a Warhol…

R5

and if I want to be a Pin Up, I wouldn’t mind Richard being one too 🙂

My favourite still remains this…

Richard, you still manage to astonish and amaze me each time you appear on any red, green, or aquamarine carpet!

You keep it up and I’ll be more than happy to change the name of the blog to “Richard Hair Watch”!

Ps. Not that I was looking but the hairy chest is back too…

Splitting hairs about Richard’s hair…

Armitage Bald

The debate continues, so cue the hair puns!

Hair we go:
Todd is going to great lengths to finish this cutting edge tornado flick and one can only hope he’ll pony up soon, once he straightens out a few things.

I think it’s great he tweets pics hair and there of highlight from the film, we’re still waiting for a great clip, so I’m brushing off any criticism from other fans that he’s showing his true colours by teasing us.

There’ve been some cutting remarks, but let’s knot get tied up about it.

Armitage Hair magic Black Sky

There have been discussions throughout the RA community regarding Garner’s intentions and the disturbing change in Richard’s hair length, as he’s clearly still sporting hair from down under… and I mean from NZ, so get your mind out of the gutter!

It’s something I’ll have to mullet over, although it looks like the mane issues were covered here and here, so check it out if you want to get to the root of the problem.

Gary Thorin Hair

The truth is I can’t wait for the tornado flick, it doesn’t wash any more and I feel stranded.
I’m receding now, it’s all getting too hairy for me and I think I’m just splitting hairs now.

So, to cut this short, hairs to your success Richard!

You are a cut above the rest and we are rooting for you!

The Armitage Tango. A tiny RA fantasy for Lady Anne

Armitage Tango 1c

This post is dedicated to Lady Anne with hopes that is will brighten up her day.

And to all my other online friends who are going through hard times and may need a Tango Richard.

The Connection
by Eran Braverman

I carefully escort you to the dance floor
And pause, hesitate, till you are ready.
Gently, gently, gently, I take your hand,
And put my other, o so softly, at your back.

Armitage Tango 5a

We begin to dance
And, momentarily
We connect.
We connect.

Armitage tango 3

We become inseparable, entangled.
We are enveloped in escaped sensuality, that
For the duration of this dance
Is perfectly balanced; how precious it is.

Armiatge tango 7

Let this dance never end because
The connection is sadly, purely, only, for the duration of this dance.
Let this dance never end because
When it ends the connection will shatter like perfect glass.

Armitage tango 6
