I wear these in real life anyway :) uhmmm making a new necklace >< last one was rushed and got ruined in my stupid oven!!! that's it rly. :P
I will be wearing this to eurogamer but again i will be without a bow. will DEFFO get one for my next shoot though ;o

When I saw the photo's in the small version I thought they were reference pictures! You really do look like you walked out of the game, Amazing!

Girl, you make me wanna give up cosplaying Lara! xD Why do you have to have such an awesome photographer?

You really do make the perfect Lara, I was going to say that it looks like you've stepped right of the game as well. And you have some really fantastic photos there to capture her character as well - I especially love the shots with the barbed wire and the horse.

Holy sheeet. This is just, wow. You sure kick Angelina Jolie in the but for live-action Lara-ness. I might pop in my Tomb Raider in my PS3, the first one. You've got me itching to play it this is that good! Photos are gorgeous and you are gorgeous. Wow.

Progress Journal

25th August 2012


An Archery bow that was given to me by my uncle. knowing my luck it was probably worth a fortune and I've just gone and painted over it lol
used a bandage for the handle just to add detail and also make it blend in with the ice axe too. Lara would probably use bandages, scrap fabric or ANYTHING she finds to use to make her tools more durable and practical, to help fight those bad guys ;)

25th August 2012


Some GORGEOUS Axes my friend made me. I LOVE THEM <3 <3 <3

25th September 2011


starting of the weathering!
using acrylic paint, sunflower oil, tea bags, choccy sauce, fake blood.

finalised with being trodden on in the garden and tumble-dried! did the same with my trousers, minus all the stuff listed up top.

19th September 2011

Finished Necklace

All finished :)

17th September 2011


yep, my bum.
oh and don't you just LOVE my pjammas? xD and my dog :') gotta love my dog.

added a stud, with a big d-ring and added 3 d-rings on the back sewn to some faux leather. that belt is actually perfect! <3

17th September 2011

Completed holster

managed to find a belt that looks pretty exact to the faux leather i used. woot! had to paint the buckle silver, threaded it through some gaps i made in the holster.

8th September 2011

My necklace

made from FIMO and painted with acrylics. I couldn&#039;t really work out exactly what it is, but I imagine it&#039;s a pheonix, which makes sense cause of the reborn thing :P lighting makes the paint look weird :S... might re-do it :O

holster detail

better view of the holster. i&#039;m really happy with it :D ignore the unneat garter strap, couldnt be bothered to pretty up the inside too D:

6th September 2011

My remade holster

i was able to make it more accurately now we have closer screenshots that show her outfit in more detail, especially the holster.
it&#039;s basically just craft foam, two layers of faux brown distressed effect leather (i guess lol) sewn. then the holster bit is cardboard with again bit of foam and faux leather. added a stud to make it look swanky! just needs a belt which i bought from a charity shop for £1. can&#039;t got wrong lol
just inside the holster i put a piece of tight fabric to hold the gun in place, stopping it from falling all the way through (if that makes sense)

6th September 2011

my boots

my timberland boots. i love them <3 <3

1st September 2011

top and bottoms

why not, i upload everything else lol xD

top is a grey marl dyed with acrylics - anyone who says you can't dye fabrics with acrylics is a twat. i used grey marl because it goes REALLY dark when wet, which is what hers seems to do. does the trick :)

The trousers were a pale olive in colour, but i put a light brown wash over them and they've got an okay colour for now. sorta what i want, they could do with going a few shades darker though.

31st August 2011


the front of the holster in progressssss. for the raised bit i used foam and am now sewing around the edges.

31st August 2011

start of holster

inside of holster. it's faux leather guled to cardboard with a bigger piece that'll have the edges sewn over.

31st August 2011

masking taped gun

y&#039; you do. ready for silver chroming :O
