Again, by request…
It’s funny that some of you mentioned a paper dolls graphic, because that was one of the many ideas I had for the “shirtless Lucas” Picture of the Day (POD) last month from RichardArmitageNet.Com. I had other ideas too, so I made two silly siggies for today’s post based on the POD from 24 March 2011.
Here is your first shirtless Lucas silly siggie:
(try saying that 3 times real fast!)
Initially I was going to make a “Pin the tattoo on the Lucas” game, but then the idea evolved into temporary tattoos. The “lick ’em and stick ’em” idea came from thinking about the lucky makeup gal who got to apply the tattoos to Richard Armitage on the set of Spooks. I got to wondering what that job would be like. 😛
Then I remembered the temporary tattoos that came as prizes in boxes of Cracker Jacks when I was growing up. You would lick your arm then stick the tattoo on the skin and press and peel it off. The tattoos would wash off in your weekly bath! Yes, as a family of seven kids, we only took baths once a week, LOL!
Maybe that explains the different location of one of the tattoos from season to season: the makeup girl had to be replaced regularly due to fainting. This would be one job where drooling would come in handy, but perhaps thudding would cause you to be replaced. These are only theories as I do not have any inside information!
Here is your paper doll siggie:
As you can see, I went with a retro theme. I seem to be regressing to my childhood. I have a feeling that although Cracker Jacks were an American phenomenon, paper dolls were fairly universal. Did you play with them? I sure did!
I also promised you the work-in-progress so here is a link:
By the way, there is still time to vote on your choice of image and font for the collaborative Vicar of Dibley wallpaper! The poll closes Sunday night and I’ll post the wallpaper next week.
Talk to you soon!
Edit: The Vicar of Dibley wallpaper poll is now closed, but you can click the link above to view the results. I’ll have the wallpaper completed this week. 🙂
