Lara Croft (Classic) - Tomb Raider Anniversary




this was the very first costume i ever made and i learned TONNS from it. so now i've decided to remake it :D

most expensive parts of this outfit were the guns which were £40
the rest like little odd bits and bobs and the top and shorts were really cheap. had no problems making this costume - only my sewing machine wouldn't sew the goddamn leatherette - i broke a needle trying to force it through >.> (yeah, bad idea, i know!) so most of the sewing on the holsters was hand sewn!
uhmmm, oh i mucked up my belt buckle D: so it kinda looks pants, even worse from the side D: and i ran out of fimo so I might get round to sorting that out after LFCC. I'm reaaaaaally unhappy with the shorts too so I might try and get a new pair before LFCC or if not definitely afterwards ;)

Now owned by LisaHPG :)
