Hobbit-Con and our Precious Richard Armitage

I had something else scheduled for today, but who the heck would want to read posts on any other topic than yesterday’s madness?

Hobbit-Con!

Just a few words on how it looked at my end.

Because I’m in the countryside, the internet connection is shaky at best, but I decided to join my Twitter friends to celebrate The Hobbit at Comic-Con 2012.

I had a blast!

We were waiting for the first RA picture to answer the most important question of all:

Beard or No Beard?

The answer is…

A beard long enough to be braided.

Our reactions to the appearance of our fuzzy friend was varied.

We were unanimous on the rolled up sleeves of the black shirt – a definite thumbs up!

We were also commenting on Martin Freeman’s hat.

All I can say is I wish it was perched on RA’s head.

He could definitely rock the retro look.

We were also commenting on how happy and confident he seemed.

My theory is that he’s channeled his inner Thorin, and that gave him the energy to project the sexy alpha male vibe.

Mr Armitage! We approve.

We might also put away the belief that he so loathes the film promoting experience.

He looked like a pro, and a man with a mission.

Thank You to everyone on Twitter, who made the experience so much fun!

A huge thanks to the following sites:

RANet – all images come from there

Heirs of Durin

Here are some lovely images from Jonia’s Cut.

Announcement about the name!

On a different note, yesterday while we were busy on Twitter, I realized how absurd the @iwanttobeapinup really is, especially if you’re limited to 140 symbols.

That’s why I’ve decided to ‘come out’, as it were, as AgzyM.

So, on Twitter I’ll be @agzym.

I shall also be using AgzyM in comments.

I was adamant to introduce any name that could be traced back to RL, but this feels good 🙂

I’ll be using my iwanttobeapinup with agzym for some time, just so everyone gets used to it.
