Thanks everyone! :D really enjoyed wearing it so it might make another appearance at Aya~

@Nert: Yeah, most of my friends didn't know it was me until I went up to talk to them or they noticed my tattoos! XD

@Lozzie: Aww thanks :3 sadly the wig arrived too late for Kita so I've only been able to wear it to the last Cosplay Clubnight

Debut! (Posted 30th April 2011)

Okays so I finally styled the wig yesterday and decided to debut it for the HeartJapan fundraiser (hosted by Cosplay Clubnights) ^^

Showing off the wig here as it was kinda messy by the time I was able to get proper photos of it all D: I'll leave the guns and holster photos on the main page though as it's a better view of them~

I also managed to get an old bag off the lovely Amber so I just cut the straps and resewed them by hand last minute to turn it into Lara's backpack

It seemed to go down pretty well, and most of my friends could only recognise me because of my tattoos! Does that mean I pull her off rather well?

Anyways yes, new full costume photos now :D!

Bah! (Posted 4th April 2011)

So, sods law I got everything finished but the wig didn't show up on time >.<

Oh wells, it's all ready now so I can wear it whenever, one less cosplay to make in the future~

Let there be belts~ (Posted 28th March 2011)


The shorts are done, the top is done, guns are done, got the glasses and wearing using my winter boots. The fingerless leather gloves I ordered are a tad too big and stiff so I'm gonna have to get some more or not have any D: Also really hoping my wig arrives between now and thursday or I'm screwed!

Although I sewed some faux leather today :D I know it's not really something to get excited about but this is the first time using anything vaguely vinyl/leather-y since getting my new (well, not really &quot;new&quot;) sewing machine, was amazed at how smoothly it went through, had no problems at all (unlike my last machine)!

So yays, I now have belts, straps and holsters :D they're a tad loose on the main straps and the bits around my thighs are kind of hard to get right since they either fall down my legs or pinch and give me fatty legs D: if the main straps were tighter/shorter they would keep the thigh straps up without a problem but I really don't know if I can really be bothered to go and unpick stuff and alter them at this point.
Will see how I feel about it in the mor-... well, later :P

Pictures to come soons~

Stuff! (Posted 16th March 2011)

Guns are finished, picture on the main photo tab :D might still give them a spray with some sort of varnish to stop the paint from accidentally getting chipped/scraped off.

Just finished dying the shorts, they're drying in the bathroom atm, lovely chocolate brown now :D

Huzzah! (Posted 16th March 2011)

So, I can finally start this! So excited, I hope it goes down well and I don't get labelled a whale XD
Like it said in the info tab, I've always wanted to cosplay Lara in all her outfits, and since I've lost weight recently I thought I'd give it a go. Going for the classic/Anniversary look to start with and when I'm a bit more confident I might try the Legend one >_>

So yesh! I already have some boots that will do (and saves me money), I've ordered some small red sunglasses that she wears in TR1 as well as a wig, although I have no idea if it will arrive on time D: I have some shorts but they need to be dyed as I could only get them in sand (all the chocolate brown ones were size 8s and under D:), I also got a nice ribbed jumper and took the sleeves off so that looks about right I think.

Here's a pic of the shorts (pre-dye) and the altered top, also the boots I'll be using~

I also got some black leatherette today so I can make the belts and holsters, got some toy guns from poundland as well, just need to spray them silver and give them some drybrushing shadows and they'll look perfect! :D

So yeah, bit by bit, if the wig comes in time I'm sure to have it all ready for Kita!
