RA Pocket Shrine 137/? – Unleashed

For those of you who thought that RAPS Inc. has gone bust: No, the international manufacturer of droolage facilitators still exists, as the international gutter press has just revealed:

So here are the exclusively obtained images of the latest RAPS:

Trevor Belmont – you could’ve guessed it. He’s a bit of a heart-throb, isn’t he? The kind of man who is a hero – but also needs a bit of rescuing himself. No wonder that female fans all over the world are already falling over themselves and for him… Hence the bling-bling on the lid…

Trevor Belmont has been unleashed – a master of quip and whip, he definitely deserves a few candles.

But hey, if you thought Guylty was going all anime, you are wrong. I couldn’t resist referencing the man who is lending his voice so animatedly *coughs* to Belmont. And no, even though I am referencing the computer game which the first season of Castlevania is based on, I did not get the name wrong. That is a deliberate reference, and you may have already spotted why…

If you pull up Trevor’s lapel, his flesh-and-blood, yet fellow fictional, cousin is revealed. Live action Castlevania? We’ve got him already… our favourite knight, Guy *sigh*.

There you have it. Guylty is entering the Castlevania fandom fray with fan art of her own. Can’t wait for season 2.

  1. Brilliant! I love it ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Especially the way you’ve brought him to life 😁

    And the interview too 😉 I always enjoy your marketing speak 😂

    • Thanks Helen 🙂 – glad you like it. I couldn’t make a shrine *without* a discernible reference to RA in it… I was actually stunned by how similar the two images were.
      Hehe, and I love writing those fake marketing communications. I shouldn’t say this (because it is my bread-and-butter), but it’s such a load of b*ll*cks…

  2. Ha! This is brilliant. That Guy is a very sneaky knight! Your creativity never ceases to delight me. I love that you mentioned there’s already been a Pilgrimage shrine! Congratulations to whoever gets to receive this one. 🙂

    • Aw, thanks Violet – you’re always so supportive 😘.
      Yeah, the Pilgrimage shrine… I really, really have to make a proper shrine to sexy scar man… (ugh, and I have just remembered that I also need to write a review about Pilgrimage *eeek*)

  3. The whip, Guy, hot and & cold… I can say, without exaggeration, that this is one of your best works. ❤ It's absolutely awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ❤

    • I just can’t resist taking the piss – of myself and occasionally of RA. It keeps this whole thing grounded 😉.
      And yes, I had to put the Armitage in the shrine, otherwise it would just have been a PS without the RA…

  4. This is a WOW! Trevor is shrine-worthy, not to speak about Guy! Whip it like a Belmont, shrine it like Guylty … can you think of something about Guy?! Love your “interview”, the animated series was a great surprise, I would have never imagine me fangirling Trevor from Castlevania, yet here I am and I find great pleasure in loving this guy!

    • I am so surprised about Castlevania, too, Glady. And about finding an animated character so interesting. I guess I am seeing bits and pieces from other characters in him – the slacking of Chop, the hero part of Lucas, the arrogance of Guy, the fighting badassery of Porter… The voice work by RA brings it all together.
      And how’s this for a slogan: “Whip it like a Belmont, shrine it like Guylty and ship it like a Guy” 😉

    • Glad you like it, Kim. I was surprised how much the two images of Guy and Trevor matched. As if the Guy image was a blue print for that profile of Trevor…

  5. Snake-f*ingly awesome! I do love how Belmont’s appearance echos certain incarnations of RA… couldn’t have found a more perfect example! Well done… I adore it!

  6. I LOVE IT!!!!!!! yes, Sir Guy IS Trevor Belmont, a bit more seasoned – a probably a hell of lot more drunk!!!! I am in love!!! (Again!)

    Sometimes, sabbaticals are needed and yes, that haircut is NOT shrine-worthy!

    Like

    • I doubt we’ll get to see the “softer side” of Trevor, but for the moment the fantasy, fuelled by romantic Guy, is enough 😉
      Hehe, glad you agree on that haircut… Thankfully, the BS poster is more flattering. In any case, I do NOT look forward to seeing RA as a right-wing thug, but hopefully that gets balanced out by other action…

  7. Great shrine. As wonderful as Trevor is, it’s nice to see RA’s face under cover of a lapel. What a great way to sneak him in. I am so glad you are are shrining again. The RA world shines brighter when you do.

  9. Poor Miss Pleasure being grilled by those mean newspaper people! She acquitted herself well though.
    Love the shrine and the whip… and that sneaky Guy hidden behind!

  10. As always, you’ve outdone yourself. I’d never heard of Castlevania until the Netflix series but am so hooked. I wonder if the illustrators used Gisborne as their inspiration, they look so much alike. Trevor’s is hot.

    • I have been wondering about that, too, Snowy! And there is a slight chance that he might be – just because in animation they start out from the voice, and then create the visuals. And RA came not only with his velvety voice, but a body of work that includes characters which show some similarities with Trevor… Or at least that is what I am telling myself. I do like Trevor, too!

  11. I was hoping that you’d be inspired to shrine Trevor! I’m not sure if it was planned by the animators but I think the fact that Trevor has so much of the look of RA makes him even more endearing to his fans. Brilliant RAPS as always, I love how you manage to include a sweet but subtle surprise or some tongue in cheek humor in them. Including Guy was genius and one of my favorite profile pics of him. So happy you’re back in the Shrining groove 😊

    • I agree, Donna – Trevor really is another Armitage character in more ways than just his voice. But yes, having said that, the shrine needed a picture of RA to become an item for our fandom.
      Initially I had planned to use another Guy profile for the RAPS, but then I came across this, and it looked so appropriate. It made me wonder whether the makers of the series actually had looked at Guy for inspiration, too.
      And yes, the shrines definitely always need a soupçon of humour. Otherwise it gets too freaky 😉

  12. Endlich ein neuer Shrine, bin begeistert!
    Castlevania habe ich noch nicht gesehen, aber das outfit und die langen Haare finde ich schon mal sehr ansprechend ❤ bin sehr gespannt!

    • Freut mich, dass er dir gefällt. Castlevania musst du unbedingt angucken, Suzy! Ist insgesamt nur anderthalb Stunden lang, kann man also an einem Abend durchziehen. Und Armitage ist wirklich gut!

  13. I’d never heard of this video game until word came that RA was voicing Belmont. And Belmont looks so much like Gisborne I wonder if Guy was the inspiration. What did Belmont look like in the real Castlevania game?
