Cosplayer WindoftheStars > Costume of Lara Croft from Tomb Raider
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume was pretty easy thank goodness! I made the top out of cotton jersey knit, which was patterned off another shirt I owned. Shorts are just quickly spandex shorts. The gun holsters are vinyl. The belt is just a bunch of webbing in black. Backpack is a quick simplified version of what she has due to time restrains. The grappling hook was made by IceMan Props. Binoculars and guns were also re-painted by Ice Man Props. Grenades are from Walmart. All the stuff stays on my belt with snaps.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I have very fond memories of playing Tomb Raider when I was younger. I never thought I would cosplay Lara Croft, but when my friends asked me to join them it sounded like a lot of fun. Plus SUPER COMFY costume is always a plus.
- Styling Notes
- Trimmed bangs and lowered ponytail.
- Wig Review
- For me, Arda wigs can be hit or miss in fiber quality. This was certainly a hit. The fiber was soft, smooth and wasn't prone to tangles like many of their other longer wigs. The bangs were thick though could have been a little wider to cover the temples of the wig. Nice and thick on the sides for the pony tail. Combs on the inside to help keep it on. Highly recommend this wig.
