Today I am travelling home to mum. For a bit of entertainment during the inevitable waiting time at the airport, I have decided to post another shrine that has been sitting around in my stash for a couple of weeks. This shrine, incidentally, was going to be the Paddy’s Day offering. And so I started out with the green-flowery fabric background in the tin, only to discover after that, that my printer was not working and I had to make do with the imagery that already happened to be printed out. It didn’t fit into the dimensions of this tin, and so I abandoned the Paddy’s Day theme for this tin and started the actual Paddy’s Day shrine in a new, smaller tin. That one eventually became the Irish Lessons RAPS.
Anyhow, today’s shrine is yet another mash-up RAPS, i.e. a shrine that isn’t devoted to just *one* chaRActer. It has a slight Easter feel to it. You’ll see what I mean…
Can you tell I am hankering for spring time? The outside of the RAPS is fresh and cool. Those colours really give me a jolt…
Ooolálá… Now, what are those chicks seeing, that we can’t see??? I was tempted to stick a little “Armitage Army”-logo over the chicks. They kind of represent us, the fans, besottedly staring at the OOA, chattering amongst themselves. *chirp chirp* 🐥 “OMG look at him” 🐤*tweet tweet* 🐥 “His pecs, his shoulders, his thighs…” 🐣 *peep peep* 🐤 “Those raspberries make me feel hungry” 🐥 *twittertwittertwitter* 🐣 “I want to snuggle in those armpits” 🐣 *purrrrrrrrr* 🐥 “The perfect nest…” But well, the “looks of love” apply both to the OOA, whose appearance is pretty
and devastating, as well as the admirers whose love-struck gazes kill with kindness 😉
gGuy who is famous for his look of love… If that doesn’t say ‘love me’, then what does? I have no idea why Marian could resist that look…
I forgot to shoot the RAPS with the customary candles. But there are two slots for the candles among the pile of hearts on the left.
No idea yet what I will do with this RAPS. Rather than a raffle, I would love to surprise someone with this shrine. There are so many people who have consistently taken part in my raffles – and always lost out. I need to give Lady Luck a little push, I think. But I’ll have to deal with that once I am back from my travels.

On a different note – I was reading Judiang’s latest post and realised that I had carelessly neglected updating my List of Armitage Photo Shoots with the last known shoot. I have finally added Emilio Madrid-Kuser, who is responsible for the Jane Hotel shoot, to the list. To do so, I looked through his various online platforms, alas, no new imagery from that shoot was found 😔. However, you can read some of my remarks here. Kuser is currently top of the list. Chronologically, that is!
However, working on the list brought home to me that the number of photo shoots has really gone down after the highs in 2013 and 2014. And not really for lack of exposure – Richard has been as busy as ever, filming so many projects in the interim, promoting Hannibal and BS, garnering a couple of awards along the way (Saturn). There has been press photography (which doesn’t feature in my list), but a deplorable lack of more polished studio photography. While Sarah Dunn is not *my* favourite photographer of RA, I think she could be the one to get him in front of a lens again… especially as she is *his* “favourite photographer”. But for the moment, I am looking forward to whatever the BS promo machine is going to churn out in the run-up to season 2 of the show. I am counting on you, German photographers!!!
Ok, I better shower, get dressed and pack now…
