November 2008 - Alison Carroll, Lara Croft
been updating one of my websites with info
about Tomb Raider Underworld that comes out
tomorrow. I then realised that I had
forgotten to update the Lara models section
and needed to add a bio and pictures of
Alison Carroll the official Lara Croft model.
So I searched the internet and looked for
pictures of her.
gymnast so unsurprisingly a lot of the
pictures were of her doing high kicks and
acrobatics. What I found surprising though
were the amount of pictures where you could
see up her shorts, and in one of the pictures
I was sure I could see her *****. Or maybe it
was black underwear made to look like
something else. They're all professional
photos so surely any mistakes wouldn't have
been posted online.
remember hearing that Lara Croft's creator
Toby Guard once quit when the Lara image was
being used in an overly sexual way. He then
came back years later when making Tomb Raider
Legend. I wouldn't have thought he would
agree to pictures like that.
that sex sells and there's always a fine line
between when something is seen as sexy and
when something is blantantly sexual. For
example Lara dressed wearing a skin tight
wetsuit while swimming could be seen as sexy
but still realistic, whereas if she was
wearing a cutdown wetsuit with her cleavage
showing it would be too obviously sexual. I
hope I explained that right.
think a model dressed as Lara showing her
crouch and hooha are a bit too over the top
for my liking. This is just my opintion, I'm
not saying it should be banned or anything
but I'm saying that companies such as Eidos
should keep a careful eye on things like that.
are lots of nice pics of Alison Carroll too.
