View Full Version : Your quest for Lara-ness!

Right! If you were to BECOME Lara! To train as Lara...
What would your MAIN problem be? Or your ADVANTAGE? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif (Apart from money, own trainingground, obviously). Physycal health or problems? Motivation? :D

Speaking for my self, I enjoy to much alcohol... And a few cigarettes (In secret!) to be Lara Croft. :eek:
However, I am quite athletically build... I run fast... And am quite average in most sports. I remember I ran the fastes in my school when I was younger!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Cigarettes, my fault...

Well my main problem would be looking the part.

lol Draco. :D

I am like Lara in a lot of ways, other than the money of course. But on a physical level I am, and mentally.

I don't have her accent either, but I love English accents so I wish I did.

Lo Guhvna, petrol up tha lorry yet?

04-10-04, 00:34
I'm with you Thorir on the ciggies, unfortunately! Putting those aside, oh how I wish I could :eek: , there would be a small problem of my chest, yes a small problem indeed!!!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

04-10-04, 05:22
Hmmm...I'm definitely not in as good of shape as her. I don't have the accent, but I do have the hair. (Not that it's really ever braided!) ;)

04-10-04, 07:35
My main disadvantage is that I can't stand having long hair...that ponytail that never ends looks so nice on Lara, but just think of the maintenance http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif

I love having long hair. You can do pretty much anything with it. It just gets hot because I hardly ever wear it up.

04-10-04, 17:17
I'm presuming I can be a male version....

If so, I'd find it tough to be celibate like Lara and ignore all the female fans who read my tales of exploration :cool:

Oh, and the cigarette thing too

04-10-04, 17:27
I wouldn't have a problem with the money and I can probably do the accent but having the commitment to stay in shape would probably be a problem.

Travelling all over the world and stealing precious and dangerous-in-the-wrong-hands artefacts, thereby ripping the said country's heritage apart.
Cool. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

main problem : my chest http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

advantage : 11 years of gymnastics, 3 years of kickboxing ;) [i had a six pack but i lost it last summer :( such a shame], face - people say i have lara and angelina-like characteristics

04-10-04, 22:22
Very cool, TRChik. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I love gymnastics. But had to quit after a accident I had. :(

04-10-04, 22:58
accidents suck. i missed half a year because i dislocated my knee :( i shouldnt have quit. ive done it since i was 3 or 4. i quit because i was going to highschool and i figured id be getting loads of homework.. i was soo wrong on that part http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif i just never ended up going back. but i can still do the things i did 4 years ago! once you learn a backhand spring, you never forget how to do it.

Well, I look like her and I am built liker her ( Except I'm not a DD). Like Jesse, I've done a lot of gymnastics, although most of what i know is self taught. I can do almost everything Lara does in the games, except for the sidewards flip and the backflip twist. I've perfected the handstand on the ledge into a birdge then standing up a few years ago, now I just have to perfect the backflips and front flips ( I'm not 100% accurate with those), and after that I will get started on the sidefilip and backflip twist lol. Lot of work to do huh? Any way, the differences. I'm American and I have short hair. I've had long hair, and it just gets in the way for me. I got tired of putting it in a braid all the time. While it looks cool, it was just kind of plain for me after I while, so I decided I'd like a short, sassy cut. Not pixie short, more like chin length. In my oppinion, it gives more of an edgy look, so I'd like to see Lara with a shorter style in her future games, although I do like her hair long too. Oh, one more thing we are different on is money haha. I'm nto rich like she is lol. That's basically all there is to say. Speaking of Lara, last Saturday I went to this huge fair in Georgia ( the biggest fair I've ever been to) and they had a rock wall, so of course I was first in line to climb it haha. Well, the guy taking all of the money put me on the most advanced side of the wall, since he figured I could do it because I
sure looked the part with my camo pants and combat boots lol. I think I surprised him because I climbed in in less than five minutes. Then I climbed the rock wall again, hahaha. I LOVE rock climbing! lol. He put this other dude on the advanced side and he couldn't even get halfway up. So i was pretty happy with what I did, now I'm ready to do that again! Someday I'm gunna buy myself a huge
rockwall ( Probably cost loads of money, so that's why I stated 'someday' haha) and I'll climb it everyday lol.

face - people say i have lara and angelina-like characteristics I totally agree with that Jesse. I see both Lara and AJ in you. Especially AJ, but I think you are even more pretty though. If she saw you she'd be jealous. haha! Don' t let all this get to your head ok? lol. Seriously though, I think you are one of the prettiest girls I've ever seen, I wish I looked like you!

05-10-04, 03:07
I know what you mean about the long hair getting on your nerves, Melonie TR! I've almost always had long hair (naturally close to the Lara's color) and kept it in a braid or ponytail most of the time because it got too hot. I just got it cut recently, so my ponytail is now like 5 inches long instead of halfway down my back! Sometimes I miss it, though, especially since it doesn't look too much like Lara's anymore :(

05-10-04, 03:13
I'm slim build and have been doing yoga, running, and strength training. Though my bust isn't so big. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif My hair is too dark though and my skin is naturally white. I have makeup from "Signature Club A" that gives me more of a fair skin tone. I'd also need a tan so I'd use tan towels instead of risking harmful rays. I don't know about dying my hair brown though.... :rolleyes: I like to experiment with my hair styles. Long dark or bleach blonde hair with short bangs, feminine mo hawks...hehe :rolleyes: , but I like to keep changing to reach new horizons..if you will. :cool: ;)

Lara is actually Pale compared to today's standards. I know that I am pale, but I'm not about to get in the sun for anything.

It just doesn't interest me at all to get a suntan, even the bottled kind.


05-10-04, 23:11
its nice to tan in the summer. its soo relaxing to sit on the beach or in your backyard in the sun.

but i dont think theres a need to get a spray tan or sit in a box and soak up some unhealthy rays in the fall and winter. sooo many girls in my school do that. i wont be surprised if one of them gets skin cancer. god forbid. but still, i wont be surprised.

thanks mel http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif youre such a sweetie. my sis!! :D
