So even though I do not own a PS3 or a XBox 360, I go to a sixth form college where most of the people in my room play a LOT of games. I'm a Tomb Raider fan myself, but only having a Wii is rather...limiting. But I really love the look of the new game, and this new costume means I can cosplay her without worrying about my boobs (or lack thereof) and showing too much leg.
PLUS I REALLY WANT TO MAKE HER NECKLACE.

The STRESSSSsSsSsSsS (Posted 7th February 2013)
So as you can probably tell I'm freaking out a tad. In a good way though, I suppose. My fimo arrived so I can, as of now, make some progress. Aka, her necklace. But I've been looking at breakdowns of the costume and trying to work out which factors i want to use. I think I'll make the bow and possible the quiver, and have found tutorial for those, both mainly for show though, so they won't be too impressive. I'll have to make to holster, but I've found a fantastic tutorial on laracroftcosplay.com for that - I highly recommend that website for any aspiring Lara cosplayers. And just going to buy a gun and paint it, because let's be honest, what Lara Croft cosplay is complete without a gun of some sorts?
In other news, I've decided to make her bigger gun and maybe the ice tool as a later project, just to enhance the costume a bit.
