I love Lara Croft, especially the original on PS1. But I didn't want to be like all the other girls at cons wearing a Lara Croft outfit. So it's perfect for a small event like this!
Based on Anniversary (which is basically a HD version of the original but with poorer game play)
Gun Holsters (Posted 17th March 2014)
I didn't really think about how I would do these when I was making them so I kind of just made it up. My original plan was to use this pleather I had lying around and spray it black but I scrapped that in the end and went for a spare black belt and some black fabric I had lying around in stead XD
I made the straps by machine sewing along a folder strip of fabric and then turning it inside out to get a clean finish. I adjusted the lengths where needed and chopped off the excess with pinking shears (is that spealt right?)
I was pretty happy with them considering.
Making the Shorts (Posted 15th March 2014)
I had looked in shops and online for some good shorts but it being winter still and only spring clothes coming out there were NO brown hotpants ANYWHERE. So I had to make them. Which was probably good practice.
This was the second pair of shorts I'd ever made. I used the same jeans pattern I used previously on Horo. The thing with this was I cut out shorts to fit a size 16 so it was large enough to downsize to my shape. The only problem was my big butt :/ I had to add extra pannels to the back to stop underwear from showing. It turned out great in the end, although not exactly something I could wear everyday on the street.
