Coffin Thrill: Vampire Hunter D Fanlisting

Guess what, guess what? I’m too excited to announce this before the official lunch of the site, but I just have to share it. I just have to. I’ve adopted the Vampire Hunter D fanlisting from Myka. She had it up for adoption and I chance upon the post, one day. Of course, I immediately sent her an e-mail about it. XD

Here’s the layout of the upcoming site Coffin Thrill: Vampire Hunter D Fanlisting:

I’ve spent like days worrying about that layout – wondering what type of layout this time. I started that after I watched Sherlock Holmes this afternoon. I didn’t get the inspiration from there though – but Robert Downey Jr. is sexy. XD

Unlike the Lunatic Symphony layout I did before that took me hours rearranging details, I did this one in one whole sitting, including the coding – about 2 hours or so. And then, I spent the rest of the day filling up the about page. I spend more time thinking about what to put there than code this.  I just randomly picked an image I liked best among the scans I currently have – since I only have a few high quality ones. And started from there. While editing this image a bit, I thought, as oppose to a striking shades of colors, a soft feeling would suit it best – since D himself is a quiet, elegant soft-hearted bishie. And since the art (image) itself is already very pretty, there’s not much to edit in it.

Btw, isn’t the image I used lovely? It’s the cover of the 9th Vampire Hunter D novel: The Rose Princess. I’ve been a fan of Vampire Hunter D since I was a kid. It’s one of those childhood anime I used to watch. D is one of my childhood crushes and I used to think that I wanted him for a husband when I grow up. Unfortunately, I didn’t grow. *sob*  I also remembered owning a VCD copy of the Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust too. I’m trilled to be allowed to adopt this fanlisting. Every time I think about it, it makes my day brighter and brighter and brighter. x3

PS: I’ll fill you guys in with the link when everything else is done. 😉
