Secret klicky for Bogro
« on: February 01, 2008, 23:27:30 »
Some time ago already, I received my Secret Klicky from Timotheos.
Unfortunately, my own lil' camera couldn't make pictures of it that were even remotely postable. I knew I could use the camera of the office and the lightbooth we've got there; but I would have to take along the klicky and make the picture right under the nose of all my collegues and - glup - boss.

Anyway, my Secret Klicky is a handsome lil' devil. He's rather a legendary figure with great alure. His true identity is still a mystery as are his deeds.  Here's a great site on this character:

He is indeed wonderful, Bogro!

(Didn't all the mice jump into the river at the end of the story?) ... ;)

Well done, Timmy!

All the best,
Richard

Really good choice of parts, Tim! the red and gold combo look great together. 8-)

Using a cord to hold the flute around his neck when he's not playing is a clever idea too.

Is there some sort of design on the cloak, Bogro? I can see just a hint of red paint on the inside and at one edge.

Thanks for showing us your gift! :)

The cape is quartered in red and gold. Sorry - forgot to take a picture from the back.

as to the mice jumping in the river; that's halfway the story; just before he's refused his pay and he marches off the children of the city in retribution.
It's quite a interesting story and myth behind it is even more interesting as there are theories galore to it's origins ... but they all probably will remain just that. Theories.
In the meantime has the story become a fairytale and even those are dying out. Apparently, the children of today prefer the Bikermice from Mars and Totally Spies over old but wonderfull stories  :(
I wonder how many still know the story of the Pied Piper or the Bremer Musicians ...  :'(

A real pity ...

Actually, Bogro ...
