Wow! You've done an amazing job with this! I've loved Lara Croft ever since I was little, and she's been somewhat of an idol, and I think you've really done her justice! I wish I could've been there at Expo to see the cosplay in the flesh...
Still, amazing work, congrats. :)

holsters (Posted 15th May 2011)

completed holsters

used carboard and faux leather with coke can for the metal parts.

resprayed guns (H&K USP Match) (Posted 15th May 2011)

these guns are modelled from the H&K USP Match, they're very cheaply made, but they do their job.

gave my old guns a respray today.
the gun of the left side had been broken so i repaired it (very badly) with fimo. turned out like crap because i used the wrong glue.
I now refer to these as my 'con' guns, as i can take them to a con and it wouldnt matter so much if they got a little more broken, although actually it would, because i dont want to break them xD
I'm gonna get a new pair of these soon, hopefully.

Backpack (Posted 13th May 2011)

made from craft foam and faux leather.
the round nib thing is a tube lid painted silver, weather and scratched :)
i want to redo the front raised bits, they look poo.

top and backpack straps (Posted 27th April 2011)

decided not to sew the grey airtex mesh onto the sides, i think it looks nice without it.

might do eventually and do a proper guardian of light cosplay. but this is only an underworld cosplay with a GOL inspired top, my own variant of Lara ^^

btw yes, i'll admit now that I'm wearing a primark push up bra ;D my real chest size is pathetic and I want to do Lara justice. and so, a £5 bra to make me from a B cup to a D cup is essential!
