I find him extremely attractive. Before I saw photographs, I always expected him to look like almost every other men of his time, with huge sideburns, a beard and a mustache. I was agreeably dissapointed :)

Interesting...I myself find it hard to think of Mister Carroll with a beard. :-)

Oh, it's almost impossible! Especially when we know how ridiculous beards and moustaches looked in the Victorian era. I don't think it would have suited him ^^

ooh, I think he was really good looking.
I think this might be because I love his work so much that I have this romanticized view of him in my mind so I can't help but think he is attractive.
I tend to do this, especially with celebrities. I might not think much of someone and then realize they're awesome and then, afterwards, find them attractive.
I think a good example of this is The Beatles. When I first saw pictures of them I thought they were all a bit ugly. However, as I listened to their music more often, I started seeing them differently. Now I think that Paul, John, and young Ringo are handsome. Sorry George.

You know, a mustache kind of suits him.

For some reason, Carroll-with-facial-hair reminds me of Poe. :/ xD

I think he's incredibly handsome, yes, particularly in this photograph:

'Dreamy' is the word. I think it's his eyes more than anything. And I think women at the time thought him handsome too.

Yes, I expect I'm in love.

Also, that moustache is oh-so fetching. ;)
