December '08 - A Fuss About Alison Carroll.
I would just like to say that I have no
grudge against Alison Carroll, I have no ill
feelings towards her and think she's a great
Lara model. It's good to have a gymnast
playing the roll of Lara and being physically
capable of doing the same moves as Lara.
object to is the way she's been photographed
with her dressed as Lara doing high kicks
without any underwear on and the camera
showing her crouch. I know not much is seen
and they are more of a tease than actual
pornography, but it's out of place for an
official Lara Croft model to be photographed
in that way.
seen plenty of amature Lara models posing on
the internet with next to nothing on, there
are even porn stars that have dressed as Lara,
but they are not officially representing Lara
Croft so they're not actually causing any
harm to her reputation.
new Tomb Raider game Lara does have some
outfits that show off her cleavage, and her
wetsuit is very revealing but it's still
within the context of the game. There is no
outfit that would reveal what's underneath
her shorts if your turned the camera angle in
I know I've
seemed to have made a big fuss on this, I'm
not a prude, I've seen 1000 times worse
pictures on the internet, but I'm worried
about the context of the pictures in relation
to the game. Eidos may have attracted lots of
new male players but only at the expense of
search for Alison Carroll on Youtube and read
the comments that people make on vids that
she appears in, then you'll know what I mean
about Lara's reputation going down the gutter.
showing some of the pics that I'm talking
about on this blog entry to show you what I
mean, remember that these are official photos
of her, not just a sneaky shot taken as a
game's show but proper posed photos. Click
