Guyday Friday: Anachronistic never looked so good.

Standard

OK, so the sleek and slinky black leather togs sported by our favorite henchman weren’t exactly historically accurate. Are we really going to complain about it?

Because Guy + Black Leather = Mmmm, mmmm good.

c2fffff

And he knows it, too, the rascal. ūüėČ

Of course, he also looks mighty fine underneath all that buttery soft black leather . . .

Happy Guyday Friday!

Holey-moley. I knew I was still awake for some reason.

More new Armitage pix from Sydney, this time a series of eight¬†by a professional photog, Tracey Nearmy¬†for AAP Newswire. They are all watermarked; still, the Armitage Bearded Beaut in Black Leather is absolutely delectable. The Sydney sunshine seems to agree with him . . . You can look¬†but if¬†you try to snaffle you won’t get far. Just¬†don’t ask me how I got this one.

Below is a link where you can see all the portraits.  Warning: Drool, Thud, Squee and Sigh Alert!

Guyday Friday: Sleek n’ Sexy!

Standard

BeFunky_rh202_098

Our smouldering sex god is a wee bit vain (but at least he has something to be vain about). There’s the hair, artfully arranged¬†(with Ye Olde Medieval Haire¬†Gelle?),fetching curls at the nape,¬†those striking sideburns¬†accentuating the elegant, masculine planes of his face. Later, of course,¬†we¬†get the Amazing Mane, artfully tossed about to great effect like the proud stallion that he is.¬† And let’s not forget the Guyliner. Nobody rocks the Medieval Smoky-Eyed Gaze like our Sir Guy. And that stubble . . . . uhmmmmmm. Or clean-shaven for those special occasions.

He knows he looks damn good in those sleek, buttery soft black leathers, accentuating his lean, muscular physique.¬† Nothing like watching that long, slinky stride through the corridors of Nottingham Castle, is there? Or¬†study him¬†lounging purposefully, strong arms folded across that broad, tempting chest, a knowing smirk or look of¬†ill-concealed boredom or disdain¬†on his handsome face¬† . . . always keep your eye on the hot, sleek, sexy henchman.¬† It’s worth it on so very many levels. Trust me . . .

Who knew a cardi could be so darned sexy on a guy? Apparently Ilaria did. Thank you, sweetie!

Oh, how we love him in black leather, don’t we, ladies? And those black kicks are just great. The combo of the leather with that lovely, cuddly-looking shawl collar sweater is irresistible for me.

BeFunky_hobbit11f-2-web

Loved this look, too.  The plaid and sweater vest beneath the blazer-traditional but NOT stuffy, casual yet classic. He looks comfortable and confident and indeed, every inch the winner that he is.

BeFunky_817991092zzz

In his black leather jacket, hoodie and jeans, he looked young, vigorous and delicious. Another winning combination!

BeFunky_MarilynDenis-03kueve

Ah, the cardi again under a dark grey blazer. Love this color combination on him. Blues and greys work so well with his complexion.  Again, Ilaria, thank you so much for helping our man look and feel his very best. Kudos!

So what DOES the Hot Henchman wear under his leathers?

Study this view carefully. Do you notice any tell-tale undergarment lines?

Study this view carefully. Do you notice any tell-tale undergarment lines?

Somehow the comments on a ¬†recent post began to delve into the subject of men’s undies and what¬†versions Mr. A favors, and then ventured into commando versus boxers vs. briefs and well–I think everyone was just giggling like a gaggle of schoolgirls by then.

The subject of just what our dear henchman, the glorious Sir Guy, wears under those rather form-fitting (and what a form!) leathers of his also arose. We certainly wish for our favorite baddie-but-not-really to have freedom of movement and be as comfortable as possible as he slinks through the castle corridors, rides his mighty steed and races (alas, in vain) to capture that deemed elusive Hood from the Vale.

We did actually get a glimpse of Sir Guy’s undies in the second season in that very memorable scene when Marian visits Sir Guy and discovers him trying on his shiny new armor in the candlelight.

In medieval times, men did wear braies as undergarments. Occasionally the show did get some historical details right.

Let’s take another look at them, shall we?

I am trying to study the braies themself but find my attention keeps straying to the sculpted abdominals, the perky chesticles, the buff biceps . . .  what was I saying?

I’d better dress the man again.

BeFunky_rh206_114ffffHmmmm. Not sure that helped.¬† OK, back to Sir Guy trying on his armor. Let’s do a GIF this time, shall we? Click on Sir Guy!

Hmmm. Let’s try dressing him again. In a GIF. Click on that slinky figure in black.

OK, I think we need a frontal view GIF,¬†too–for thorough research.

Let’s see, where was I? . . . oh, yes. Guy. Leathers. Underwear. What fabric? Something really soft . . . wouldn’t want to chafe anything. And yet–supportive, too. Wouldn’t want any harm to come to the Gisborne jewels. Don’t suppose they had Ye Olde Henchman Jocke Straps back in the day.

c2fffff

He doesn’t appear to be wearing one here . . .

What was I talking about again?

I need some sleep. And good dreams . . .

Oh, yeah. Happy Guyday Friday!!

Sweet, Sexy Man in Black Leather

Standard

This is from a shot of The Hobbit cast members posing together after (?) the Apple Store interview in London. I cropped it down and used photo editing to take out an unnecessary¬†shoulder and played a bit more. This is one of my favorite of the casual outfits Richard wore–love that sweater style under the now ubiquitous black leather jacket–and doesn’t he look handsome and relaxed? As if he’s enjoying the ride. A lovely man.

And of course the candid of him arriving after that long, long flight in Wellington before TH premiere. How can he look so good? It can’t just be due to first class seating, can it?

There were problems with a water leak down the road from us (on what used to be part of the family farm, now owned by a timber company) and our own water got shut off. Been wrangling around to get it cut back on. Waiting for the Quint-Mar folks to show up now.  *sigh*
