|Time Taken :||2 hours|
|PLAN CHANGE -|
I've been wanting to finish this cosplay for too long now but I've never planned to wear it so it's slipped down the priority line. However a friend who will be coming to MCM London this October has wanted to cosplay Lara for ages so I've promised I'll finish this up so she can borrow it.

The STRESSSSsSsSsSsS (Posted 6th 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.
