Before I delve into the video goodness of the interviews that took place at Comic-Con, let’s talk about a few things:
⭐ The Apparel: blue shoes, can’t go wrong with anything blue in my opinion. even this:
I happen to really like the grey “letter jacket” type coat. though it does remind me of when I was in High School and took to wearing my brother’s letter jacket while he was away at college. it never dawned on me that this could be boyfriend repellent. I was clueless in the dating department.
⭐ The Hair & Close-Cropped Beard: win/win! I’ve always been pro-Armitage beard myself, he seems more at ease when he’s wearing a beard. the hair- I like the new coiffed ‘do too. both of these are worthy of discussion but all Richard seems to want to talk about is his derriere…
⭐ The Trailer:
followed closely by “DAMN IT!” I thought I was all resigned not to watch Richard’s upcoming episodes of Hannibal but after seeing that tease, how can I resist? it’s scary and sensual and disturbing and all around intriguing. the way he pops his back into place, and how eerily straight his posture is when reading the magazine, and the ball hat–I do have a soft spot for ball hats
(edited to add: the original trailer was removed, so I’ve replaced it with a similar one)
the (big) part of me that shies away from gore is still wary though, as is my sissy psyche. confession: remember when I had that disturbing dream that I was Dolarhyde and broke into my own house? when I close the windows each night now before I go to bed, I check the lock on that particular window twice and then nod to myself “so Dolarhyde doesn’t get in”. true story.
⭐ The Antics of Boyish Armitage:

okay, break time’s over!
but first– Bonus pics for no reason whatsoever:
Okay, carry on.
