On a personal basis, today was a great day for fan matters. So I thought I would make a fan post today.
Eh, do you ever post anything that is *not* a fan post, Guylty??? A few bits and pieces have accumulated over the last few days, and it was topped by a creative flash, so I’ll compile it all in this one post.
My notebook arrived
A week or so ago I decided to test Society6 and ordered myself the Plushie notebook from Sinnaminie’s collection. It arrived today, and it is über-cute!
Talking of Society6… I compiled a…
Collection of Fan Essentials
So, while I was setting up Society6 – it occurred to me to look for other fans’ work on that platform. I already knew Sinnaminie’s and Circus Doll’s work, but I was delighted to find a few other fan artists as well. For the fun of it – and just because you *can* – I made a collection of Armitage Fan Essentials. Click the link and have a look at all the goodies. Those are the things I would buy
if I didn’t have to take my lovely hubster into consideration 😉 Wait another day and Society6 will probably have another 20% off promo on.
It’s fabulous to see so much truly great creative work!
Talking of creative work… Here is a…
RAPS Sneak Peek
Mean, I know. Only a corner of the latest little treasure box, because I am saving the reveal for another day since I haven’t been able to set up a little shoot for it yet. But finally, after a long time, the creative urge hit today. As soon as Mr Guylty and daughter had left the house, I ran upstairs and got started on the shrine. And no sooner had I finished it, and the family returned from their outing. That’s time well-spent…
Reveal to follow tomorrow, I think.
Lastly, a question regarding upcoming festivities
RA Birthday Week?
So, it’s four weeks *exactly* to the big day. I mean August 22, also known as Richard Armitage’s birthday. I am already hearing that there may be presents planned for our special man (if you would like to know more, please send me a DM on Twitter or e-mail me and I’ll pass on the info), but I was wondering whether there is any interest in marking the birthday the way we occasionally have done in the past. Last year there was no official fandom activity, and I did a birthday week on my own. Anyone interested in doing something this year? Maybe RA needs a little love after the so-so reception of BS in Germany, Pilgrimage *outside* of Ireland, and BoF pretty much everywhere.
Good thing that Castlevania is such a hit…
Also, I was wondering whether another charity auction would be an idea? I have accumulated a few special items over the last while that I would like to give away for charity – and I’d love to have an outlet for some of my creative exploits. What do you think? Or is everyone out-of-pocket due to summer holidays? Let me know in the comments.
So that’s it – hope there have been some fan items for you in this post. Tune in tomorrow – to check whether I have lost my RAPS touch or not…
