I’m not very tech savvy. So it took me ages to get the video from ZMTV with Richard responding to the hot dwarf questions. @bff222 over on Twitter told me she was anxiously waiting for someone to make some gifs, and since I finally got my hands on the video, I went ahead and made some. So, @bff222, these are for you.
There he goes with the TOC again.
Martin sure does crack everybody up.
Richard’s so modest…but dude, you’re hot. Get used to it!
The second time she called him hot:
You know what: actually he was hot, literally:
Did you just say Thorin’s hot but Richard isn’t? Come on lady!
Yes, Martin! That is what she said.
Look at that thumb action in the last gif, Serv. 😉
This was probably my favorite interview from the press junket. I hope you enjoy the gifs. And now, seeing as it is 2:30 in the morning, I’m off to bed. 😉
We all remember those “I ♥ Hot Dwarves” t-shirts from Comic Con back in July, right? At the time I thought it would be great to have one, but I wasn’t sure I’d ever wear it. Well, it didn’t really matter anyway, because you can’t purchase them anywhere (at least not that I’ve found). A couple weeks ago a couple friends and I started talking about actually making or ordering shirts. We played around on the internet designing t-shirts, sweatshirts and *cough* panties. It was all just good fun, but then I happened across reasonably priced sweatshirts and iron on transfers and thought, “What the hell!”
I started out with a design. It went through a few different incarnations, but this is what I ended up with:
Did you know that dark fabric transfers have a white background unless you change it?
Next came the template phase of the design:
Happy with the template, it was time to print and trim the transfer:
Finally it was time for the transfer process:
There are a few imperfections that bother me. The iron on transfer directions weren’t clear enough about how long to press down on the transfer, which led to “hot” being a bit singed…ItsJSforMe and Zan decided it was singed because Thorin is just so darn hot. 😉 The black shirt also shows through the white a bit. All part of the learning experience, I guess. Over all I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. And I can always make a new one for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug next year. 😉
