Lara Croft (Jungle Standard) - Tomb Raider: Underworld




Again? yep.

With LisaHPG as my Doppelganger :)


OKAY. so. I've just realised today, after much stressing and hair pulling that I won't be able to FULLY finish this without COMP-UH-LEETLY killing myself. *headdesk* I just have wayy too much to do, BUT if I cut some of this down a little bit, by using an existing top (i'll go for a nice mint coloured top) ditching a few little details and possibley reusing my old backpack (which I've since given to Lisa :) ) then it'll all be okay, I think!! it's only for the sunday, and I have another opportunity to whip out Underworld Lara for a photoshoot anyway :) *feels better about self* okay, so you all know not to expect much.. so don't! okaybyelovesyouall.

Leaving it as complete for now. Might put it back into progress when I remake the backpack and make myself a BROWN TOP!!!!!
My friend Lisa made a fucking wicked Doppelganger :) we're planning a shoot soon ;)

completed holster

papiermache'd cardboard for the holster, covered in pleather. used a beer can for the metal piece and riveted it all together. then SUPERGLUEDDDDDD everything in place. gotta superglue otherwise it WILL fall apart.

21st May 2012


Why can't cosplays just sew themselves? ERGH. JUST BE COMPLETED ALREADY D8

still got the holsters to sort out and attatch to the garter straps. quick job but... CARNT BEEE ARRRRRSED. quite frankly. i need more wine.

18th May 2012

Garter straps

badly sewn pleather with an elasticated strap and buckle. complete with D-ring. ;)

18th May 2012

ze belt

leather belt, with webbing on top and a fimo buckle. I am NOT pleased with the weathering and too lazy to do it again. noone will notice. :D

18th May 2012


yeah, I'm pretty please with these. dyed an existing pair. They're hand sewn mesh sides, so I hope it stays :S

18th May 2012


Little top I already owned and just cropped it.

my brown one fucked up during the dying process and I just don't think I've got enough time/money left to sort it out xD I will do eventually, but I'd rather NOT stress myself out before the con. no-spank-you.

13th May 2012

I've been busy...


so this is the buckle, made from fimo. choaked to death on silver chrome spray and a coat of lacquer. the hook thingies at the side will be mostly covered by the belt anyway. I'm pretty happy with how it looks. :) *dies of aerosol poisening*
