Nutcrackers in the form of wood carvings of a soldier, knight, king, or other profession have existed since at least the 15th century. Figurative nutcrackers are a good luck symbol in Germany, and a folktale recounts that a puppet-maker won a nutcracking challenge by creating a doll with a mouth for a lever to crack the nuts.These nutcrackers portray a person with a large mouth which the operator opens by lifting a lever in the back of the figurine. Originally one could insert a nut in the big-toothed mouth, press down and thereby crack the nut. Modern nutcrackers in this style serve mostly for decoration, mainly at Christmas time, a season of which they have long been a traditional symbol. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker, based on a story by E. T. A. Hoffmann, derives its name from this festive holiday decoration.

Today, just before Christmas, I present you a funny little figure, a nutcracker. Already a few years ago I wanted to make something like this, but somehow didn't get around to it.... Now Anet brought a beautiful skin for Greatsword - Greatknacker's legend into play, so I had no excuses anymore :) So my nutcracker is born. For something a little more fun, I used the shoulder with Bomb Eater's Raiment - Firecracker's Raiment - it had been sitting around unused for a while and I couldn't find a better idea for it. The Warlords Raiment would also fit well here, but I found Aetherblade Light Vest Skin more interesting (also because I already used the first one for my EGGNOG Lieutenant last year: https://gw2style.com/look.php?id=18030). And Swaggerings Boots have been sitting on the bench for a while....

Have fun with my nutcracker!
********************************** AND MERRY CHRISTMAS !

Great idea, I like that. I thought you'd be gone by now, you haven't posted anything for so long...

Hehehe, I'm not away. Been busy with my PC, so a la from Win 7 to Linux and then to Win 10. It's annoying when something doesn't work the way I want and I have to reinstall/uninstall all the programs.
