Beautifully presented, O Hedgy-Corinna :win1: person. Wouldn't have expected anything less. May I venture to suggest the 'crockery' containers we are seeing are something from someone's own childhood :bow: :clown: :rose: , when we were a mini-person in our own right?

Only one rule - Corinna gets to decide as she is her current host... :)

@ hedgy :lol: :2thumbsup: EXCELLENT !! pic - such a smart idea.........only prob is, she'll have to use her 'fingers' to eat, as there isn't any cutlery!!! the toast would be ok - but I don't know how she going to tackle them beans. :lol:
Beautiful pic Corinna, can't wait to see what other clever ideas you have planned for her :jump:

@ Val - thanks, it wasn't that hard to do (for a first time), you may find it easier. The hardest peice was the tiny leather gloves, and trying to fit that tiny waist for leather shorts over the wide hips. :lol: I ended up sewing them directly on her, boy talk about awkward, plus I got more superglue on my fingers (and my lip ) than I did the material.
So I hope the Safari pack for Bratz is still available for you for the boots and binoculars, but the guns I had to share off one of the other actual "Lara " figures.

I did indeed own a similar set when I was little, but quite frankly I have no idea what happened to it. I have to admit that I only bought this set last week (after I heard that Lara would visit me) :blush:

So be it then ;). Could you please PM me your address, Jens?

Oh really, Jules, do you really think so, tsk, tsk, tsk? Lara, of course, brought her own cutlery which when I took the picture was still inside her backpack :D :-P



Here are a few more pictures :sunny:

Lara at the Steubenhöft
Image
Admittedly not the most spectacular picture in the world, but I thought I post it anyway as the Steubenhöft (and the Hapag Terminal nearby) might be of interest to some of our U.S. American and Canadian members who are of German descent. It's not unlikely that the Steubenhöft is the quay where your ancestors went on board the ship to America Image

Lara taking a walk on the mudflats (low tide obviously, 2 hours later she would have had to take a swim to be at the same spot :D)
Image

Lara enjoying a bit of (winter) sun on the beach
Image

Lara posing for the obligatory photo in front of the Kugelbake:
Image

Lara and me looking out to sea, both of us feeling a bit of wanderlust ...
Image
The ship in the picture is the Colombo Express, the world's largest container ship (335 m long and 43 m wide :-o). She's on her way to Yantian (via Rotterdam, Port Kelang, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Ningbo and Xiamen).

And this one, because I made a promise :blush:

Soo,
finally Lara arrived here at my home just in time for her birthday. :) Unfortunatelly it fell on the same day as Valentines Day. :( But here are the first pictures of Lara's stay at my home. :D

Image
^ Happy Birthday, Lara.
Image
^ Deep in the Jungle ...
Image
^ Brunch. :D
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
^ Lara meets the "Little Man" :daisy:
Image
^ Lara and the birds of prey. Image
Image
^ Lara: "What are we cooking today, Jens?"
Image
^ Lara: "Ahh, Pasta!"
Image
^ Wating for the lunch Lara sat down in front of the television to watch some of these weird judgement shows.
Image
^ Pasta al á Spinaci. :D
Image
^ Now it is proved: Lara Croft is unable to eat and be clean. :lol:
Image
^ After a long journey from Cuxhaven to Wuppertal and an even longer birthday Lara went to bed with my toy turtle "Schildi" at her side. Good Night Lara, tomorrow you'll have your first ride on the "Wuppertaler Schwebebahn". Have nice dreams.

A long and eventful day for Lara indeed; thanks for sharing your photos, Jens :up:. Looking forward to the ones you'll take while riding the Schwebebahn :)

P.S The 'Little Man' is a real cutie (and quite a Lara fan it seems :D).
