Words and Pictures collaboration project

Welcome, welcome! This idea has been brewing for awhile and I decided to post it now, even before it’s fully cooked, LOL! If you’re willing and able, we’re going to work together on a project called “Words and Pictures.”

It’s long been known that our dictionaries do not include enough words to describe Richard Armitage, his talent, and his characters. So we have had to make words up. One example is the word “chesticles” which means “Richard Armitage’s bare chest.” ๐Ÿ˜€

Screencap courtesy of RichardArmitageNet.Com

So here is your challenge. If you can think of a word (or phrase) that applies to Richard Armitage or one of his characters, please post it with a link to an appropriate image in the comments box below. Also include a short definition. This word need not be of your own making, but it can be one you saw elsewhere. ๐Ÿ™‚

The deadline is Monday, March 26 at 12 noon, New York City time.

Here’s an example:

If you have not yet played before, please feel free to jump right in. “All comers, all welcome!” ๐Ÿ˜€

I really look forward to your contributions. Have fun and good luck!

The results of our collaborative project will be posted sometime next week. Let’s see, shall we? ๐Ÿ˜‰

EDIT: Your contributions need not be in English. All languages are very welcome!!!

NOTE: Thanks for all your submissions.ย  The deadline has passed so please check for your results by Saturday at the latest.ย  I hope to have one bonus post between now and then.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

      @Bettina: Wow, great contribution! I haven’t heard the word “Armirousing” before so it’s an extra bonus for me. Thanks very much!

      • Bettina Cheim says:

        @bccmee: Glad you liked it! Somehow I can’t get that “pet name” out of my head when I see that hunkilious man! Have a great weekend! Thanks for all your hard work on your website! LOVE IT! (;

  1. cdoart says:

    Sorry, my brain just is empty after a crazy week ;o(
    And my suggestions like fan-tastic and extRAordinary do not really extend the dictionaries. Furthermore, all pictures of RA would match those words, so I don’t have a distinct suggestion, yet. I must think some more ;o)

  2. Luciana says:

    What a great idea!!! For obvious reasons I’m out this time… I just can’t ‘play’ or create any word in English, but I’ll love to see the result of this project!!!

  3. jos2507 says:

    I think that in an interview I heard Dawn French describe Richard as a “Guy of P-leather”… (my English is far from perfect because I’m French – not from her family – so I assume it was for “pleasure” ?) lol

    • bccmee says:

      @jos2507: Your comment is brilliant! I’m glad you explained you’re French but not Dawn. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

      Thanks so much for playing and I am delighted with your contribution of the word “Pleather.”

      If possible, could you please post a link to a picture? If not, I will find something suitable. I appreciate you taking the time for our little project!

  4. Bettina Cheim says:

    tRAnfixous: the ability RA has to make womens’s jaws drop (THUD) and to pierce their hearts with his electric blue eyes (AAAH)

    LOL! This could go on forever bccmee!


  5. Beachbaby says:

    I was just looking through some Lucas pics & realised I kept being drawn to the “crinkle” pics so my word is “crinklicious” ๐Ÿ™‚

    • bccmee says:

      @Beachbaby: “Crinklicious” is a delicious and appropriate word. Do you have a definition to go along with it? Great screencap choice too!

      • Beachbaby says:

        Oops – helps to read ALL the instructions ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Crinklicious: highly pleasing ripples on Richard’s forehead
        (mmm – think I’m mixing up my nouns & adjectives here…….)

        Thank you. It was such a chore LOL – which crinklicious cap to choose. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tantalizage: Richard’s ability to tease and excite his admirers’ desires!


    Weekend is starting, since I’m getting NADA done at work! WAY too distracted! (;

  7. Bettina Cheim says:

    See bccmee…I’m so distracted I forgot to put my info in…Tantalizage was my word!!!

  8. capaca says:

    “Watching for the plot” – Gratuitous appearances of Richard’s body without clothes, which may or may not be integral to the actual plot, but we pretend it is anyway.

    If you want me to choose a specific pic let me know, otherwise I’m just gonna leave you this: http://recycledvinyl.tumblr.com/tagged/watching-for-the-plot

  9. cristine says:

    This project seems to be a bit too challenging for me as English is not my natiive language. But I’m truly enjoying reading the comments and the new word inventions + gorgeous pics of RA!! Or is it just that it’s already 0:30 on Saturday here, after a hard week at work, and my brain isn’t functioning any more ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Faboamanto says:

    Has this been used before? Probably.
    The disease we all catch after watching RA, especially in North and South

    Or – in another language one – Spanish:
    DespRAmpRAnante = RA Stunning


    Great idea!

  11. This is a great idea Bcc. My english is not good,so I donยดt know if Iยดll get make up a word in time, but any way , Iยดm enjoying very much reading all the suggestions of my friends.Ladies,have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Here we go : charmingtage ( itยดs a mix of charming+armitage ).


  13. Hi Bccmee!
    This sounds fun! I contributed two terms to the RA lexicon. So here are pictures to go with them:

    1) Guy-li-cious: Definition–An adjective describing RA’s irrestibly leather clad (or not) Sir Guy fixing us with his smouldering gaze–and we melt into a quivering puddle of womanly.
    Picture: I like this picture because we see a hint of Gisborne “glutes”, despite Sir Guy looking at the sherrif in this instance: http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/RobinHood/album/seasonthree/Episodefive/slides/5_025.html

    2) Be-Guy-ling: Definition–An adjective describing the trance like state that RA as Sir Guy elicits in us with his oh so sexy smirk. Some drooling is involved, on our parts.
    Picture: http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/RobinHood/album/seasonthree/Episodefive/slides/5_084.html

    Cheers! Grati ;->

  14. Snicker's Mom says:

    I have to think on this over the weekend. What a fun idea!

  15. Ana Cris says:

    Body Art – The body behind the tattoos of Lucas North

  16. Luciana says:

    Insanity + Armitage = Insanitage – mental condition after knowing RA.


  17. jhezser says:

    My word is “Richarding”, which is basically the activity of pursuing all things Richard Armitage, watching DVDs, fanvids, reading RA blogs, commenting on RA blogs, looking at RA photos, listening to RA audiobooks, etc.etc. I don’t have a particular photo to go with this word. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great idea Bcc! Love,Judit

    • bccmee says:

      @Judit: Ooh, most excellent word! I’m delighted to add it to our collection. Thank you!

      If you can’t find an appropriate picture, perhaps someone else will volunteer to help? ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. fabi4 says:

    Thank you for a gReAt distraction while I was doing my house cleaning today, thinking on a word/picture to your project. ๐Ÿ™‚
    In Portuguese: arRAsador = devastating. It means how strogly is the effect of pictures like this on us, poor mortal women:
    Armitageitis: highly contagious and cureless disease. Any resistance is futile, specially to this:

    • bccmee says:

      @fabi: Wow, I appreciate all your help! Two words, awesome! You’re the first person to post a Portuguese word! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks very much for your participation.

      • fabi4 says:

        Bccmee, I think we have a problem. My language is Portuguese, but I’m from a former Portuguese colony, which is Brazil. If the flag is due the language, right. But if it’s due the country, could I have my own? Or maybe both, LOL. Thanks!

  19. fabi4 says:

    Typos alert: it’s “strongly”. Blame the effect, LOL.

  20. Emma says:

    Such fun! Here’s mine:
    gRAzing – The time one spends browsing through pictures and articles of Richard, even if theyโ€™ve seen them a hundred times before

  21. beengizzied says:

    How about …

    RAmBUNctiouS : A reference to Lucas’ nice buns and fans’ boisterous reactions to them

  22. Lady Prisca says:

    Very good project Bccmee. I don’t know if it’s good for you but I ‘ve a phrase :
    The Richard voice is an arm of massive seduction.
    In french (my language) : La voix de Richard est une arme de sรฉduction massive.

    • bccmee says:

      @Lady Prisca: Oooh that’s lovely! I think RA has the dreamiest voice. *sigh*

      How would I write it as a phrase and definition in French? Here’s what I would put in English:

      Richard’s Voice – an arm of massive seduction

      Congratulations on contributing our first French phrase!

  23. jhezser says:

    OK, here goes: http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/cbeebies/album/slides/cbeebies4_029.html
    His look says: I dare you not to go Richarding while you’re supposed to be working!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ And can I have a Hungarian flag please??? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • bccmee says:

      @jhezser/Judit: That’s a great picture choice, thanks! Can you translate your phrase into Hungarian? Then you shall win your Hungarian flag reward. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      As an American who speaks only English, I find the other languages very exotic. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  24. Ania says:

    Great project Bccmee!!!
    I donโ€™t feel so well in my English to make a word in that language, so here is my sentence in my language: โ€žRyszard jest nieziemsko przystojnyโ€, which means : โ€œRichard is unearthly handsomeโ€ http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/Richard/Promos/2010Promo/album/slides/Apr2010-McGorty-02.html
    And maybe one more word, I admit that I often define myself that I’m “zRYSIOwana” and means that I was charmed by Richard or have changed under the influence of Richard. “Rysio” is a short form of the name Richard. ๐Ÿ™‚
    BTW I’m from Poland ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. jazzbaby1 says:

    RA related sniglets, huh? Gonna have to think about this a little bit. And look, I can comment again!

    • bccmee says:

      @jazzbaby1: Hurrah, you can comment again! ๐Ÿ˜€ I look forward to your contributions. Haha, I remember the word “sniglets.” Wasn’t it coined by a comedian named Rich Hall? I wonder whatever happened to him.

  26. Here another adjective for the most guylante man in whole planet( galante= gallant).I suggest too Guybeau.(beautiful Guy)

  27. Thorindependent: adj. 1. A love of the character Thorin is dependent on the actor playing him
    2. The success of The Hobbit movie is dependent on RA fans (ha!)
    3. Whether or not RA should shave is independent of the fact that he is no longer in character for Thorin
    4. Beautiful eyes and a smooth voice are independent of other dwarfish good looks.


    • bccmee says:

      @Stacie: Wow. Just wow. Thanks for your really great and detailed entry with four definitions! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love that picture of Richard Armitage and it’s what I use as a base for my twitter avatar.

  28. angemar3 says:

    Hi everyone,
    LOL, some words are really funny, I have to add to my vocabulary, just love it.
    Iยดm in love with Armitageยดs amaizing beautiful blue eyes = “blueris” = Blue + iris” ๐Ÿ™‚
    http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/StrikeBack/album/series1/Episode1HD/slides/ep1hd_008.html I took this beautiful pictures from the amazing web http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/

    • bccmee says:

      @angemar3: I’m delighted you found such a lovely and appropriate word to describe Richard Armitage’s eyes. *sigh* โ™ฅ Thank you very much!

  29. Melissa says:

    This is awesome

  30. mersguy says:

    “Armitaged” this is how I describe falling for the many charms of Mr A.
    The moment I got Armitaged – โ˜บ


  31. Ok, BCC, Italy has to attend the challange!
    I’m not the creative kind concerning definition, but I found this that is funny and community-centered.
    Armyllaring= looking for and creating connections in the universe of Armitage’s fans.
    Comes from the Italian noun “Armillare” that is a special instrument used in astronomy to determine the position of stars and planets.


    What do you think? Do I deserve my flag? LOL

    • bccmee says:

      @Carla: Oh thank you so very much for our first Italian entry! And you were thoughtful enough to include the etymology, brava! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love Italy, although I’ve only visited your lovely country once. Someday I hope to return. โ™ฅ

  32. jacqui_coinyard says:

    I’ll have a try don’t know if it is to silly.
    You call it Crisps we say Chips and since RAs middle name is Crispin I’d say Crispy might be a nice pet name since there are plenty of women who find him as tasty ..as crisps..?

  33. jacqui_coinyard says:

    Love the entry’s from other country’s!

  34. Just a little correction.The second adjective is Gisbeau ( this sounds bettter) e not guybeau.( Beau is french )but I think all know what it means.Bellow the picture for this word

    Here another one: GARbogeous.( garboso from the portuguese + gorgeous) It can means someone very distinct,elegant, handsome, such as Richard Armitage.

  35. Hi Bccmee,
    Just for you, I’ll add a phrase– “Pret a Porter”:

    “Ready to wear” now becomes:
    1) ReAdy: http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/StrikeBack/album/series1/Episode3/slides/ep3_104.html

    2) Willing: http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/StrikeBack/album/series1/Episode3/slides/ep3_105.html

    3) Able to sweep us off our feet, *swoon* *thud*: http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/StrikeBack/album/series1/Episode3/slides/ep3_106.html

    Cheers! Grati ;->

    P.S. And here’s a bonus: Oh yeah, Porter really knows how to activate my “armitageogenous zones.” http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/StrikeBack/album/series1/Episode3/slides/ep3_108.html

    I hope I’m not too late…

    If not, here’s my contribution :


    With the French text : “A croquer…”.

    Which means someting like that : “Delightful…”.

  37. bccmee says:

    I’m a bit stunned at your large vocabularies, LOL!

    ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  38. Oh, am I too late? I’ve been sooo busy at work.๏ผˆร—_ร—๏ผ‰ Sorry, but I’ll give it a try some other time!
