At ease RArmy and get admiring!

I can’t believe FanstRAvaganza 4 Week is at its end!

It really has flown by.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Traxy for organising the event this year.

 Thank you all the wonderful bloggers and readers who took the time and effort to participate, amusing and entertaining us with their Armitage Admiration.

On a personal note I’d just like to give a HUGE nod to Ms. Sally Boots, my wonderful guest blogger, who went above and beyond to fill this humble space with her quirky sense of humour.

I really do hope this isn’t the last time she decides to do so!

As way of thanking you all for taking part in FanstRA4, I’ve created an image inspired by an RA confession 🙂

At the beginning of the week I asked a series of questions hoping that the answers would tell us more about who the Richard Armitage Admiration community was.

Are you ready for the answers?

Here it goes:

I was surprised at the results of this poll as a huge % of my readers are from the US and Canada.

All I can say is Viva! EU 🙂

Where are you from RArmy

I’ve often stated that I’m a big bad fangirling cheat (no, seriously, you have NO idea…), but I’m happy to see that Richard has your loyalty!

It seems that falling in love with Richard is the start of something more long-term.

Now, if only Richard remembered our anniversary…

Itches are made for scratching and Richard is made for fangirl admiring.

Ps. All the Richard  images were created using your wonderful face and body parts you so kindly sent pictures of!
I wanted to make you somehow part of Richard, even if it’s in this quirky way 😉

Who the heck do you think you are, Armitage Army???

Happy FanstRAvaganza 4!

Welcome to one of the best weeks of the year to be an Armitage Admirer (and let’s be honest, it’s not too shabby on any ol’ day…).

This year is extra special over here at IWantToBeAPinUp as there’ll be a post each and every day during FanstRA4 and to help me out I am so happy to announce that I shall be sharing this space with a special guest blogger LittleSallyBoots, who you may recognize from the Armitage community over at Twitter (@Sally_Boots).

Ms Boots will be posting on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

This is how she describes herself:

So I’m a borrower/dwarf-sized English lass who likes to doodle and drink lots of
tea (it is the answer to life’s problems). I have lots of
obsessions *ahem* passions and aspirations, including, one fine
day, to stroke Richard Armitage (I am aiming high – quite literally for
me!).
I am muchly excited and a wee bit nervous to be blogging as a first time
blogger on Agzy’s wonderful blog this week ^^
Happy FanstRA4 everybody!

How adorable is she?!?

Please make sure you give her plenty of wonderful energy and support as she’s popping her blogging cherry this week and she’s doing it in style.

She’s whipping her blogging hair back and forth!

She’ll be spinning posts right round baby, right round!

Without your positive vibes, she can’t get no bloggin’ satisfaction!

Anyway, you get the idea…

Armitage Army small

Armitage Army, I’ve often wondered who the hell you are!

I mean, seriously, who do YOU think you are?

Armitage Army, RArmy, Armitage Admirers- a rose by any other name would smell as sweet!

You are my most favorite aspect of Richarding, and one that keeps me coming back, keeps me interested, keeps me connected.

I’m a big fat fangirling cheater, but I’m loyal to my RA peeps!

No offence to Richard and his breathtaking attributes, but the quality of fans (admirers, stalkers, craycray’s, whatever name works for you…) is one of his absolute best features.

If the fandom was represented by an Armitage body part, I swear it would be Lucas North’s bum in tight wet denim jeans!

Or Porter’s abs… or maybe that royal hooter stuck conveniently right in the middle of his face…or those runner’s thighs…

Oh, nevermind…

nosey fangirl

Knowing more about the absolute best part of Richard (as far as I can tell and eliminating the cardigans he’s been wearing and I’ve been drooling over) has always been on my mind since I met you, and I’ve decided to compile a bunch of polls to basically satisfy my, and perhaps your, curiosity.

Just so we’re clear, I think the RA fandom is better than the RA cardigans… just not by much…

Anyway, the thing is, the poll results will be hidden until the last day of FanstRA4 when I shall reveal them in my final post on Sunday, because I’m evil like that and believe in delayed gratification (yours that is. Mine? Not so much…)..

I had grand plans for this project, seeing it as a fandom equivalent of Alfred Kinsey’s report on sex, but reality has taken me down a peg or two, so let’s water it right down like a jug of Sangria on a hot July evening, and be happy with the little things in life, like a jug of watered down Sangria *hiccup* on a hot July evening.

The questions (with multi-choice answers, even when more than one makes no sense at all) are very run-of-the-mill, so bear your soul and help this nosey parker 🙂

So, without further ado, I’ll take geography for 200, Richard (works only in a reality where RA is the host of Jeopardy!).

Ok, that was easy (enough), so let’s move on to the ‘nails on the chalkboard’ one.

Reminds me, I need to unscrew the lightbulbs in my house and start hosting guests by candlelight…

How about your Armitage experience?

How many hot British cucumber sandwiches are you buttering (and cutting the crusts off) in that naughty brain of yours?

Richard had me at Hello!… well, at punching Hot Pipe Stevens while managing not to damage his pocket watch (a talent I greatly admire in a man…), but what about you?

I bet Richard is a marathon man (you can understand it whichever way you like, I certainly won’t be explaining myself…), but what about your admiration?

It’s not only who you admire, it’s where you do it, and I don’t mean in the shower or on the bus coming home from work, so mind. out. of. gutter please!

It’s also important how you do it.

After all, there’s the right way, the wrong way, and the Armitage way (or Norway, which also works…).

No, but REALLY, how do you do it?

Are there any other questions regarding the RArmy that you’d like answered?

Is there some kind of fandom question tickling the back of your brain or any other part of you?

If so, please leave your ideas in comments and I’ll do my best to include your ideas into the post 🙂

Let’s get the Armitage Army to spill the cotton!

Let’s get our secrets off John Porter’s chest!

Results will be revealed on Sunday.

Ps1. I still need more of your face/body parts for my FanstRA4 project, so please send them my way!

Ps2. This post was, in part, inspired by a wonderful BBC series Who Do You Think You Are? which I really enjoy watching and can only regret Richard never took part in as I’d love to peek at the ancestors who produced such a  fine specimen.

My favorite episode? Probably the Alan Cumming one.

Collecting RArmy Body Parts!

 

FanstRA4 Richard Armitage NY

Dear Fellow Armitage Admirers who have ridiculously good taste in men !

Although I should be focusing on the mammoth task I have ahead of me today, it being the day of ‘sink or swim’, my mind seems to want to find refuge in brainstorming FanstRA4 ideas.

The date for THE BEST ARMITAGE event (well, apart from Armitage Day, eeerrrr Armitage Week, King Richard Week…. OK, so we do like to celebrate a lot around here…) has been set for the second week of March 11th and will run for…not 1, not 2, 3? Nope… For 7 slamming saliva inducing days!

This year I decided to really flex my Armitage blogging abs (which exist only in virtual reality) and have a post for you each and every day throughout the week.

That right folk, I’m bringing absurd admiration to a whole new level!

I’m enlisting help to fill the space, so can anyone say GUEST BLOGGER?!?! 🙂

I shall remain mum as to this blogger’s identity for now, but I’m really excited.

FanstRA4 Richard Armitage March 11th

Back to the topic at hand (no pun intended).

I need a hand (again, no pun intended) with a project I’ll be doing for FanstRA4.

RArmy, there’s no easy way to say this, I’ll I’ll just go right ahead and say it:

I need your body parts!

Before you start running for the hills or calling the cops on me, let me specify.

I need pictures of parts of you.

It can be  parts of your face or body.

You are very welcome to send me a whole pic, but for privacy reasons, I’ll be more than content with small parts of you 🙂

The more the better, and I really do need hundreds!!!

If you’ve never done anything like that before and you’re not sure how to crop, here’s a small guide.

There are billions of ways to do this, but here’s a simple one.

Take a picture of yourself.

I shall use Richard as my model… and will continue to explain once I stop staring at his beauty…

OK, so here’s the pic:

001001

Then go to PicMonkey and click on ‘edit photo’.

Pic Monkey Edit Photo

Once you open up the pic, choose the ‘crop option on the left and start cropping:

Pic Monkey crop Richard Armitage

The end result will be something like this:

Richard Cropped Eye

You can send them in anonymously to:

iwanttobeapinup[at]wp[dot]pl

I really hope you will join me in the FanstRA4 project 🙂
