Lara Croft is my favorite game series ever! I'm not a die-hard gamer by any stretch of the imagination, but the Tomb Raider series is one I've always loved to play, and always bought the games when they are first released.
I've been patiently waiting for this new game to come out, meanwhile I've been watching game trailers and checking the Tomb Raider facebook site for updates. Lara's look has changed quite a lot from the previous games - she looks a lot more realistic, gone are the ridiculous Barbie sized boobs, and the tiny hot pants. Instead, we have a young woman who becomes a fierce and strong fighter.
I couldn't resist to Cosplay her! I've been wanting to make a Lara Croft video for ages, and when I heard a new game was coming out, I knew I wanted to cosplay her updated look. Watch my video below on everything I used to recreate her look, her costume, and even her weapons!
Cargo pants: H&M Men's (dirtied up with charcoal & ash)
Tank tops: H&M (dirtied up with soil)
Boots: Steve Madden (you can also check out an Army surplus store)
Props & Weapons
Gun holster: army surplus
belts: previously owned by me, one of them is an old Austrian army belt
Gun: an antique revolver borrowed from a friend (selling replica toy guns is illegal here!)
Bow & arrow: made out of several reeds I gathered from a forest, tied together with rope, the front grip is a bandage that I dirtied up
Makeup & Hair
Blood: Kryolan Film Blood
Eyes: Ben Nye Cork, Maybelline Colossal waterproof mascara
Blush: Ben Nye Natural Blush
Lips: L'Oreal Colour Riche in Sheer Nude
Hair product: Balea Trend It Up Mattifying Styling Paste
Make sure to get yourself really grubby for this look! It's half the fun, and will make it so much more realistic!
