Lara Croft: Tomb Raider by VandorWolf Lara Croft: Tomb Raider by VandorWolf
When Tomb Raider first came out on the PS3, I wasn't planning on getting it. I liked the previous TR games, but they weren't anything too special imo. But then I saw Kenshiro-FDP playing the reboot and fell in love. I went out the next day to buy it then played through until I got 100% completion. I was stoked when I saw they were making a PS4 version (even though it didn't end up being too different than the PS3 version). This game is just so beautiful and well made. I could honestly play it for months at a time. Abd I really, really hope there is a sequel in the works! 

Myself as Lara Croft from Tomb Raider
Clothes were bought then hand-dyed to match Lara's in-game colours a bit more. Bow was bought on EBay then painted by me. Necklace was also from EBay then altered by me to a better length. Axe made by me.

Really?  2013 killed the franchise for me, I hate QTEs & IMO the story had many flaws but meh, to each their own. I can still enjoy the awesome cosplay.

Wow, great job!!
For a second there, I thought you were Chell from Portal. (You'd make a great Chell..!) 
This looks really awesome though...wowowow.

Awesome job! I love this game so much, it really expands on Lara as a character.

I also have a Tomb Raider cosplay, but I couldn't find a good bow (I wound up just making the stick one) do you still have a link to the seller you got yours from?

VandorWolf Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014
Thank you! Yes, I agree. The reason why I love this game so much is the story. I think they did a fantastic job at portraying Lara and explaining how she because so badass in a realistic way.
The seller I got mine from is bobwilkerson777 on EBay. Super nice guy! Spent about 40 minutes talking to me about the bows and which ones would work for me. 
And, awesome! I'll check out your Lara! :D

Love your eye for detail. The cosplay, the props and how you've added bandages, blood and dirt smudges all deserve a big fat five stars.
About the latter: I've seen a lot of 'clean' Laras walking around, or with just one or two 'safe' smudges or cuts, and that always has me feel like there's something off. Now you've nailed it with realistic looking injuries and dirt. It adds up so much to the feel of this cosplay. (Please tell me you haven't actually been crawling around in a tomb.)
Once again, you've nailed every detail. Compliments!

Oh, wow! Thank you! :blush: That really means a lot to me since I love this game and character so much. I wanted to do the "dirty" Lara because once the Endurance goes down, she's pretty much always covered in some sort of mud or blood lol If I could, I'd raid all the tombs I could find lol Well, maybe not "raid" since I wouldn't want to take things from historical sites XD But I would love to do photoshoots in an actual tomb/cave :) That would be awesome!

I still prefer older Tomb Raider games like TR: Legend (King Arthur!) over this new one (too much bugged quick-time events).

VandorWolf Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014
Oh really? I didn't experience and bugged events. I just really love the story to this game :) The older games are still good, but this one was what renewed my love of the franchise. Maybe I'll replay all the old ones soon :)

Yeah, I know that some quick-time events like the one with the wolf in the cave are bugged - I could never go past that wolf. You'll see a lot of people complaining about that QTE.
