Tuesday Musings: Richard Armitage THBOFA LA Premiere Prep Checklist, December 09, 2014 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #669)

Hi RA Fans/Admirers, THBOFA--Dec0914LAPremiere01-Invitation_Dec0814TheHobbitMovie-sized

Tuesday/today will no doubt be filled with press events for The Hobbit folks as they prepare for tonight’s Los Angeles Premiere(right) of “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”.  Red carpet arrivals begin at 5:30pm (PST, LA time).

If I find a livestream link for the Red Carpet, I will post it.

Update, 5:15pm PST (LA Time):  The One Ring Net has a live feed going from the press pit–with the Happy Hobbit girls. Ha!  Note that their feed is choppy:


But what must go through the exquisitely talented British actor who portrays Thorin Oakenshield, Richard Armitage’s mind as he preps for his THBOFA premiere Tuesday night?

In 2012 for THAUJ’s World Premiere inWellington, New Zealnd, I proposed an RA ficlet.  
In 2013 for THDofS, I loved viewing the LA World Premiere Black Carpet livestream and shared my caps of several pictures–including a devastatingly handsome, you know who.

For 2014’s LA Final Premiere in LA, I propose for Richard Armitage a fun male grooming Premiere Prep Checklist–based on his prior stated preferences:

1) wash pitts, check!EsquireUKDec2013Photospread-vid--RichardArmitage-buttoning-shirt_Dec0814TeresaACap-sized
2) barely shave, stubble-rrific, check!
3) put on underpants, socks, handkerchief, cellphone, room card, check!
4) brush teeth, then gargle–with wine, or Thorin Cocktail, check!EsquireUKDec2013Photospread-vid--RichardArmitage-buttoning-shirt_Dec0814TeresaACap-GratianaL-sized-sepia
5) smile in the mirror, oops pull clothing tag off sleeve as I adjust cuffs and cuff links, check!

It’s showtime!

Of course my burning question for Mr. Armitage is, can your LA BOFA premiere suit/tux z12TH3BOFALondonPremiere--RichardArmitage-Suit02_Dec0114tycat-tweet-sizedtop your sartorial splendour with your London World Premiere of THBOFA vested suit?   Perfection!   Sighhh! (image right, courtesy of tycat tweet)


The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will be coming to a theatre near you soon. And don’t forget to check for RA Fans planning THBOFA events–such as the Chicago December 20th gathering to view the film, and have some fun in the Windy City.

Have a gReAt day and evening to all of The Hobbit cast and creatives–and to their fans like me who can’t wait to see the film!


Cheers!   Grati ;->


About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
