Costume Information

General
Cost : 15 pounds
Awards : 1st place at ex Competition in Jakarta Indonesia
Time Taken : 7 days

Description
Most of all I buy the clothes and make small adjusment.

Events: March 2010 28th

There are two events at Sunday, 28th March 2010. First is ANIMAX at Grand Indonesia - Jakarta, and second is C'Mon eX at eX Plaza, It's nearby so I thougt I could go to both events. I was wrong. The building is separated and It was raining so I get stuck at eX building. Well, I get lost too because it's huge and I've never been there so I can't get back at Grand Indonesia in the right time.

I already sign as participant in Animax, and I go to eX building to meet my friends in Harry Potter - Star Trek - Star Wars community. My friends also sign me in on cosplay contest at eX Plaza.
So surprised I've got 1st place in C'mone eX cosplay event.
I'm so happy. Never expected it because my costume is too simple. But I enjoy it being Lara Croft and always have fun ^^

Surprisingly, even security guards know about Lara Croft. I thought the malls will banned me because I carried gun everywhere. I borrowed the dragunov from Magami's Big Brother. Thank You Bro! ^^


About Costume:
I only made the holster and the back pack. I bought Turquois Shirt and brown short pants at flea market.

It's not easy to find the shirt and the pants. I must walk from place to place in very hot sunny day. From Mall to Trade center to very traditional market.

I found it in very small market and dangerous place in Jakarta ;P along with the boots.

I bought long sleeves turqoise sweater, cut the sleeves and make the bodice of the sweater small and sewing it with hand until it's very fit on my body.

About the game:
I research about Lara Croft in youtube, wikipedia, and others sites.
I don't play Tomb Raider, I made her costumes because my friends asked me to join their photo session projects - Insya Allah - will be held in 25th April 2010. Wish our luck ^^v

I watched the cinematic game from youtube over and over again. Try to understand, the costumes and the character.

I made mistakes again, because I watched Tomb Raider I,II, The Adventure of Lara Croft, The Last Revelation, Chronicles, Angel of Darkness, Legend, and Tomb Raider Underworld, some of my stuff divided between The Last Revelation, Legend, and Anniversary. I pick the Anniversary costumes anyway ^^ My stomach is not sexy enough and I'm little bit fat *blush*
