Manips: the Gentlemen of BTVS  
So this other day there was a photo editorial with a bunch of models in cravats and long-waisted suits.  So what do I do?  Turn them into the Btvs boys, of course!


+ please let me know what you think
+ please don't link directly
+ icon/graphics website HERE, resources HERE.
And if you want to use any of these as fic inspiration, let me know and I'm happy to make banners out of 'em. Or heck, if you want to take 'em and play on your own feel free! Just let me know if you use 'em (I'd love to see what people do with them).

And icons, just in case you want 'em:

Dear sweet lord, I am dumbstruck with amazement. Xander and Ethan in particular...

Hee! thanks lady! The match with Ethan was what totally inspired me to do this series - it was just too perfect so I'm glad you like!

Thank you darling woman! They were great fun to do (it's the kind of photoshoot that was just too hard to pass up)!

I need to make a **SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!** icon b/c that is the only thing that could convey my awe and delight at this. Dandy!Ethan especially. I also especially love Oz.

It's amazing how much BETTER David B. looks in your manip than in... any canonical 19th-cent Angel episode ever.
my monkied brain: angel - smilekatekat1010 on August 6th, 2009 12:57 pm (UTC)
HEEEEEE!! I'm so glad you're delighted -that's just the awesomest compliment (and I adore Dandy!Ethan especially myself).

LOL about the DB - I think it's because I wasn't trying to give him awful!long!hair :D

*grin* it's cuz Xander is perfect for *every* time-period! heee.
Kat: Xanderseductivembrace on August 6th, 2009 12:42 pm (UTC)
These are just awesome! Especially love the Xander (this one just BEGS a time-travel fic) and Oz, and Giles.
my monkied brain: g/x - found youkatekat1010 on August 6th, 2009 01:01 pm (UTC)
AWW THANK YOU! If you end up writing one, let me know *grin*

and if you're jonesing for something that has Xander in cravats, check out mireille719's Regency!au (G/X) - even though it's a WIP, it's an AWESOME read so far, and is part of what inspired me with these boys in their costumes.

Oz' shaggy collar! Ripper's herringbone! Ethan! Ethan! Ethan! These are all fantastic and fabulous and inspired.

Goes into memories.

HEEEEEE!! AWWW - THANK YOU! so so glad you liked!
Carrie: Buffy Deerheadlightsrivertempest on August 6th, 2009 12:58 pm (UTC)

Yes, I'm already writing a fic that Spike would fit perfectly for!!!! OMG, these just so wonderful, especially Ethan and Xander!

Oh please, could you make me a banner with the Spike one? The title of the story is 'Incandescent'. I am not above begging. :D
my monkied brain: spike - manipkatekat1010 on August 6th, 2009 01:07 pm (UTC)
sure!! what size banner would you like? and anything other than spike, or just his beautiful self there?

Not only is this an amazing and incredible idea, but no one but you has the panache and skill to pull it off. These are simply GORGEOUS. The Xander and Giles ones in particular thrill me...and inspire dirty thoughts. *nods*

You're insidious. Now I want to write Wilde-esque Xander/Giles. Or Dickens-esque Xander/Giles. Or just plain old Victorian Xander/Giles, with evil Ethan scheming against them, and an Angel/Liam with a DECENT Irish accent. Fie!

ilu, lady! <3
my monkied brain: giles - secret smilekatekat1010 on August 6th, 2009 11:12 pm (UTC)
*tempts tempts tempts tempts* YOU SHOULD DO IT! (though seriously, how in the hell do you write a decent Irish accent?)

oh, wait, i'm supposed to be looking innocent here! I'm so so so glad you're loving them darling! Thank you thank you for the marvelous feedback dearest one! *squishes you to pieces*

As I scrolled down, I kept thinking, "That's my favorite. No, that one. No...." All are incredible!!

sahiya on August 6th, 2009 01:16 pm (UTC)
These are awesome! I <3 them. Especially Ethan!
my monkied brain: g/e - mysticskatekat1010 on August 6th, 2009 11:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you darling! Ethan was definitely the one who inspired this whole thing - so glad you like him!

Those are wonderful. Tried to pick a favourite but kept changing my mind.
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on August 7th, 2009 01:00 am (UTC)
thanks sweetest! and that's a problem i'm happy to provoke! :D

EEE these are amazing! I'll admit right now that while waiting for the page to load I thought "holy shit the creepy Gentlemen? WIN!" instead of dudes in oldtimey finery.

I think I like your interpretation better than mine. There's less zombies and more hot dudes in oldtimey finery.

Xander is my faaavourite! <3
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on August 7th, 2009 01:01 am (UTC)
EEEE!!! lol, i love the way your brain works (although really, not beyond the pale to think about the creepy-gentlemen - it is the right series right :D)

Xander is my faaavourite! <3

this seems to be the consensus! so glad you like him (and them all) thanks darling!!!
