CASTING CALL

Hello all!

I was plain lazy when I returned from my trip and didn't even turn on my PC. Heck, I haven't even been writing.

But never fear, I've hopped around to visit a few of you and will be making my rounds soon.

Well it seems it's already the week of the 24th, and time for this...


Please visit their sites to check out the other posts.

I have a clear picture in my head of what my main characters look like, for that reason it was really hard to find matching photos on the net. Still, I gave it my best. Here they are.

CRAVEN: King of Pantheas, a planet in another realm. He possesses the power to travel the psyche. His ambition: to lead his people into evolution while combatting a physical threat, fretting over the woman who broke his heart and another mind-bloggling female who's connected to him in ways he can't begin to image. He's not quite human, but if he were...hmm.






Take the green eyes from guy #1 (ditch the skinny physique), replace with the brawn from guy #2 (except someone needs to put some hair on his chest. What's the infatuation with men going hairless?), add the sheer manliness of Antonio Banderas, but make him really tall. Throw in a few spots in select areas. Voila.


THEODORA: Primary soul and angel pupil. Harbors a clear obsession for Craven and the people of his realm. Her goal: to keep him from harm and eventually claim a place at his side as his queen. She's human most of the time, but I haven't given her a face. If you've read my story you'd understand why I feel it's not fair to do so. I even considered opting for this...





But if I made her look like someone, she would be average, nothing terribly special to make her stand out. She'd be someone everyone could relate to...a woman with a lot of good and a little bit of darkness. (After all, she was a self-professed goddess at one time.) This is the best I could come up with.



So there you have it. I'd like to thank the ladies who hosted this blog hop. It was really fun. And I will visit everyone else by Thursday.
Have a great week! ...^-^...

  2. I like how you grabbed a mesh of photos for your characters. It's so right, sometimes you can't find that 'perfect' match in your head :)

    Great job!

  7. Oh, Antonio, you could read me the back of a cereal box and I would swoon. That voice, that smolder.
    Ahem, need a cold shower now.

  8. Antonio... *sigh*...
    Ahem, um, where we we? Oh yeah... Love the cleverness with the mixing of photos! :D Sounds like an awesome story!

  9. I'm not best placed to comment on the male character choices (more hair on my chest than on my head) but I love your approach to building your ideal character. Very Frankenstein of you :)

  10. I couldn't wait for this! Great post! What about Cassia? What would she look like? Theodora is my favorite. I love the connection she has with Craven--it really rocks your book.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Craven! Rowr. ;)

    I love how you used multiple photos. Of course, like Lisa, I'm curious about Cassia now. (And we all know what curiosity kills, so... *grins*)

    Thanks for participating! :)

  12. I love the character names. :) And the whole story sounds super interesting!

  13. I love how you used three photos to create the perfect guy.

    This blog hop has been a lot of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Whoa...lot of skin in these pics;) But still looks cool:)

  15. I'll have to check this out.
    I will say that the dude with the abs and the tighty-blue-whiteys and the pecs made me Goggle Jessica Alba.
    Just to keep me on the straight and narrow.

  16. Wowza. I gotta get me a protagonist who looks like that.

    Unless you base your character on a real person, it's tough to find a good match sometimes, isn't it?

    Fun blogfest. :)

  17. Sometimes a photo mashup is the only way we can get the elements we're actually looking for in regards to our characters.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love Antonio Banderas, but yes, he needs to be taller! I've always pictured Craven with longer hair for some reason. And I see you made up for my lack of flesh! Ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  19. What a sexy array of photos. Good casting

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your characters sound awesome. Antonio Banderas always = a good cast :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am very much intrigued by your characters and I do agree that your lady char should not have an ordinary human face, maybe you should endow her with a pair of translucent eyes or some pointy ears :) - you know my obsession with elves -Please let us know what you've decided when you finish..creating them. Kisses and good luck.

  22. Love the pics. Let me guess: you had fun researching the male character ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. You are such a wonderfully naughty girl. I bet your husband loves it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Looks at chest..looks at abs...Puts shirt back on.

    Nice job, Laila. The funny thing is, I had a really hard time getting an image for my MC because I really don't know what he looks like. I've been writing from inside his head for nearly a year, but he never looks in a mirror.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great entry! I loved that image of Theodora in that white dress. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. How fun! Interesting that your female character is fairly faceless, average. I really should do this for my characters I suppose, but my readers will come up with a completely diff image, I'm sure!

    ReplyDelete
  27. did a good job here Laila. My characters are always a mixture of others when I go looking for a picture of them.

  28. As usual, I <3 the way you use pictures

    ReplyDelete
  29. I can't pic a famous actor for mine either, I like to mesh. Good choices :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Purty. :D The body of guy #2 is really nice.

    FYI, Craven is another word for coward in Game of Thrones.

    Glad you enjoyed your trip and took some time offf. I need some time off.

  31. Fun bloghop! Antonio Banderas looks good in that picture!

  32. Hello! (((((hugs)))))

    It’s so awesome to visit your lovely blog today on this Halloween blog hop. I think this is an awesome opportunity to meet other authors! I’m joining your blog and I hope you’ll join mine, too, so we can learn more about one another.
    My favorite monster movie is Night of the Living Dead and I’m dressing up as a mime. Mime is one of the most ancient forms of theatre, appearing around the time of the Greek tragedies. I hope to perfect the art and technique of portraying a mood, idea, or narration by gestures and bodily movements. The only problem is…that I have a big mouth! LOL. It’s so nice to meet you!

    Chrissy

    P.S. I’d love to connect with you online!
