We had a lot of excellent entrants in our Adina West print book giveaway, so I thought I’d highlight some of the most popular. I asked for your favourite vampire inspiration, be it in books, movies or television, and you definitely made the judging difficult. But looking for illustrative decoration was easy.
Eric Northman, the Sookie Stackhouse series
“I’d have to say Alexander Skarsgard as Eric Northman in True Blood! Perfect casting and just overall yummy.”
(Pretty happy they chose to give him a haircut for season 2, actually.)
“The best Blade is Blade Trinity. Jessica Biel amazing, Ryan Reynolds super muscles. I don’t remember anything else.”
Lestat, Interview with a Vampire series
“Lestat de Lioncourt from The Queen of the Damned movie – definitely not the Tom Cruise incarnation.”
Bram Stoker’s Dracula
Claudia, Interview with a Vampire series
“I was fascinated by her un vampire like looks – her gorgeous golden curly hair, pale white skin and the way her vampire ‘fathers’ dressed her like a doll. I didn’t know anything about vampires when I saw this movie and the scene where Claudia struggles with the fact, that she would never grow up and never would become a woman made me understand the supernatural elements and the immortal elements of being a vampire.”
Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Strangely no one nominated Edward Cullen from Twilight, but I suppose that makes sense because Joel wasn’t allowed to enter.
