Goodness me! What an episode! We need to celebrate that. With a (D)RAPS!
True to my word, I am creating a RAPS for each of the Red Dragon episodes. This is number 3 in the series of 6. And you would’ve thought that I would have no trouble choosing images and theme for this pocket shrine. Well, to tell you the truth, there was almost too much goodness (in terms of visuals) in that episode. Plenty of trunk shots, intense staring, romantic hugs, or even stronger stuff *c
limaxoughs*. And Guylty did not know where to start. I had to do plenty of rewatching in order to come to a decision. Research. Yeah, right. Here’s the start…
I had mentioned on Twitter that I wanted to incorporate the tiger scene in the shrine. Well, I started out with good intentions, although slightly hampered by the lack of tiger-striped material. I even went through three different shops on Friday to get hold of anything with tiger stripes – stuffy toys, scarfs, I would’ve bought a saucy pair of knickers if that would have provided me with some stripes. But – no luck. I settled for something animalistic, though, glued the fabric into place and then found myself floundering. What next? How?
Turns out, the shrine had different ideas to its design than I did. Instead of recreating the intense tiger scene, I suddenly found myself in the bedroom with Dolly…
There he is, curled up in his happy place, cuddling with the Red Dragon. Honestly, I didn’t see that coming.
And with that, the
slightly sexy theme was set. Here is the Woman Clothed with the Sun, seen from the other perspective. Sort of.
Candles are so romantic – especially when… – how fitting they are in this shrine.
Yeah, I know, the beast is not exactly what one might want to dream about when thinking of Dolarhyde. I am not sure who has swallowed whom, whole? The Red Dragon Dolarhyde? Dolarhyde the Red Dragon? Or Dolarhyde Reba? Come to think of it, I wouldn’t mind being swallowed by Dolarhyde. He looked pretty good when he was “swallowing”.
Like before, I am raffling off this shrine over on my Twitter. If you would like to win this (D)RAPS, these are the instructions:
Go to my Twitter @GuyltyPleasure. I have tweeted six shrine-related tweets, indicated by numbering (1/6, 2/6…). Quote (which is a kind of RT) my tweet 6/6, making sure you include the hashtags #Hannibal #SwallowedWhole. And you are in. RT open until Monday, 10 August 2015, 8am GMT.
The shrine will be sent anywhere in the world, free of charge! I only have one favour to ask: Please allow another three weeks before I send it because I would like to hold on to all six final shrines til then in order to take a ‘group shot’ of them for my archive.
Good luck 🀄
