Red Carpet Adventure……in Pictures

I’ve had some formatting issues with this post. It does not look the way I want it to but, for the sake of my sanity, I am publishing it the way it is. xx

Many of you have heard about, or possibly read about my little RA adventure in the Auckland airport.  Sadly, there are no pictures on my camera from that.  There are, however, several pictures from our lovely Red Carpet RA encounter in sunny Wellington.  I know first hand the excitement of seeing “new” pictures of Richard Armitage surface and I feel like I’ve kept these (mostly) to myself for long enough. So here’s my little FanstRA pressie for all of you lovelies.

These are just from my little point and shoot and not pro quality by any means.  Still, I hope you’ll enjoy them……

First glimpse

“There he is!!” First glimpse of the man himself!

Impatiently waiting as RA finishes his interviews.
You can almost hear the collective “squeeing.”

I love the chuckle on Mr Security Man's face as he spots the anxiously waiting Army.

This pic is not particularly significant other than I adore the chuckle on Mr. Security Man’s face as he spots our little group.

And finally he's on the way.

And finally he’s on the way…….

Signing and chatting

RA signing and chatting. It meant so much that he took time to chat with each of us as he signed our books and pictures.

He signed a couple of things and then decided he wanted a different pen. Ruth is looking in her purse for a Sharpie.

apparently, it's a really big purse...

and, apparently, it’s kind of a big purse…

aaaand, we have a pen...

aaaand, we have a pen…

Hello darling...

Hello darling…

I don't know what it is about this pic, but I just love it. All furrowed and adorable. I think he may have caught a glimpse of the t-shirts we all had on.

Reading the Team Thorin shirt.

What a lovely smile.

I think he likes them….

I believe there was a bit of cheeky conversation going on in these next few pics, but that is not my story to tell.

Well just say he was definitely having a good time…..

After he finished chatting with our group, Richard stopped to greet a few friends. I have no clue who the woman is, but the man he’s shaking hands with is The Hobbit concept artist Alan Lee.

and he's gone

Richard stopped for a few more autographs before heading off, out of sight.

Going through these photos brings a flood of memories and emotions.  There is just so much to share about that day, and the whole amazing trip, but I can’t seem to find any more words right now.  It was by far, one of the craziest, and best experiences of my life so far and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

More for another day. xx
