Before I launch into the latest shrine post, I would like to quickly apologise for my lack of replies to recent comments. I usually reply to every comment, but haven’t had the opportunity to do so in recent days. It’s not because I am on holiday – I have access to the internet through my personal hotspot. The reason I have not had time to answer properly, is that I agreed to do some translation work – and bit off more than I can chew. Typical freelancer problem: You feel tempted to take the work whenever it comes in, because you a)
are young and need the money and b) don’t want to lose your clients. The large translation coincided with the three days of our stay here where I had booked a rental car. So the little time I had with the computer after a day of sightseeing by car, had to be invested in work. Meh. However, the translation is (hopefully) coming to an end today, after I put in all of yesterday to get through it. Anyway, that is just a little explanation as to my (relative) silence.
Before I finalise my work today, I am treating myself to a little RAPS presentation, though. The title says ‘Team Leather’ – I’m sure you know what that means… Guy *sigh*. Guy is also our fellow fan Jacqueline’s (@FANtasticRCA on Twitter) favourite guy. She commissioned this RAPS in a creative exchange and stipulated that she liked season 1 + 2 Guy best. So RAPS Inc. went to the drawing board…
Some bling on the lid, courtesy of Kathy Jones, btw, who recently send me a massive stash of gems and stickers and tins and cutesy things.
So, season 1 + 2 Guy. RAPS Inc.’s head designer didn’t have to think long. Leather!!!!
Yep, he looks good in black, front and back, with long sleeves or short. Hard to see, but the backdrop behind the leather model(s) is black leather with metal studs, too.
I slightly adjusted Guy’s most romantic words for the purpose of the shrine – after all it is to appeal to the new owner, not to the misguided original recipient of the words…
The full works. I like how the candle light casts an orange glow of fire across background Guy… I hope Jacqueline has as much fun with her new mood enhancer as I had making it.

Incidentally, I am now wondering whether Guy has caught up in my RAPS stats. Last time I checked, he was badly underrepresented in my oeuvre. I will have to check when I am back home.
And now back to work and then:
