This Lara Croft Cosplay Kicks Some Serious Ass

Strong, beautiful, clever, and brilliant, Lara Croft is the longest standing and most popular female video game character of all time. Now a nearly household name, the sexy British archeologist made her first appearance in the gaming world with the release of Tomb Raider in 1996. Quickly proving to be a relatable and loveable lead game character, her game spawned a handful of sequels that have continued into as late as this year. With many re-designs and changes to backstory, Lara has always kept a few key elements to her character. These trademarks include her long pulled-back brunette hair, her blue/brown color scheme, and her dual wielded pistols. No matter the design used, Lara’s personality remains the same: a tough, and fearless woman with incredible dedication.

Tomb Raider: Legend, released in 2006 was the first game with advanced enough graphics to finally put a defined face to the personality that had developed into Lara Croft. The game was released a few years after the movie inspired by the game was made. Starting bombshell Angelina Jolie, the film wasn’t a huge success but was a dream casting for fans of the game who got to see Lara come to life on screen. Because of this, Tom Raider: Legend’s version of Lara looked substantially more similar to Jolie, finally creating a perfect picture of Lara.
