Lara Croft, Tomb Raider Legend cosplay costume. From a Tomb Raider fan.

Made it in about 3 days with recycled clothes.
Guns, gloves and backpack were bought, I altered the gloves and backpack a bit.
Belts are fake leather.
Bust is not photoshoped I just grabbed a very big push up bra .
Hair is mine.

Costume made for a photoshoot with photographer Jose Manchado: [link]

My apologies to Lara Croft fans, I'm just a cosplayer, I don't resemble her, I just tried my best to look like her and this is the result, I hope you like it anyway

Aaaw you make such a cool Lara:) I love your attitude here (and very cool title for this) and I'm kinda glad that you put a braid like in the first render pics of Legend;D I'm thinking of remaking a few of my Legend pics and I will definitely have a braid like in the renders:D
Btw, it's kinda cute that you explain that bust thing:D Well it's better to have a push up bra than a surgery.

Thank you! well I always loved Lara's braid in the previous games and I just had to do it! ^.^ Yeah, absolutely, if you want to stay natural you can always "cheat" with these things: bust engineering! :P

XD queda muy muy natural, en serio!! Y sales muy guapa en todas las fotos ^^ muy natural

Muchas gracias! Sí, es que había que meterle mucho volumen a eso, y yo tengo la talla de Shanoa más o menos así que imagínate lo que gana! :D

I think u can assure me un-safety :P

how u made the costume btw ?
Virchan's avatar
hehe, yeah, it's an adventure everyday, you don't know what's going to happen!
you can read how I made it above, but all I did was reuse some old clothes I had and altered them with the sewing machine to make it tight, the backpack was bought and I altered it a bit, added that coloured pen to make it look like a bengala (somewhat), the gloves I bought them and added a front pannel to it because it had holes; and the boots I used ones I have and added the front leather pannels and the horizontal bands. For the belts I had to make them from scracth using fake leather and foam in some parts. :)
