More dress-up fun with Guy and the Creator


San Diego Comic-Con International

There’s a reason why I made Guy a highwayman in my novel in progress. He sends chills down my spine when he declares, “Stand and Deliver!”

Guy is still trying to determine just what costume he wants to wear for Comic-Con International in San Diego. Here are some ideas he is tossing around. Yeah, I am seriously enjoying FaceInHole, Loonapix,BeFunky and other fun photo editing sites online. When you can’t sleep anyway, it’s a creative and pleasant way to pass the time and the subject matter is so–appealing. And I always did like playing dress-up. And dressing up the ChaRActers. 😉

You gotta admit. Richard–and Sir Guy–would make sexy, sexy pirates. He’s already got the kohl liner down pat.

This really isn’t a stretch for our dark knight. But he does look so good in chain mail and armor (and out of it!) and knows how to wield a weapon.

Being a tad jealous of a certain King Under the Mountain, Guy is thinking of getting his royalty on. This photo was originally of Al Pacino as, I believe, Richard III. This seemed quite fitting. 😉
Too bad Pacino’s neck isn’t longer. Well, not everyone can be as beautifully made as our dark knight.

The wasp-waisted Victorian dandy. The man does do period very well.

Comic-Con International is coming to San Diego in a few short days. Sir Peter Jackson and the lead actors in The Hobbit–Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen and RICHARD ARMITAGE, along with director/actorAndy Serkis and co-screenwriter Phillipa Boyens will be part of the blockbuster movie’s panel on Saturday afternoon, July 14 in Hall H. And I will be there, too, as a reporter for Comic Book Resources and as an enthusiastic RA blogger and admirer.

Yet again, I could not resist.


I hope you find this as good a laugh as I did. I’ve been up for quite a while now and I am a bit punchy.  I have also decided I have a rather goofy face. 😉

Clyde, who was in need of some Dapper Dan pomade to control his floppy locks, was also pondering whether it had been wise to give Bonnie that extra shot of Grandpa Leonard’s hooch before hitting the bank.
