Tomb Raider: Lara Croft

tomb raider cosplay - lara croftLara Croft is a Tomb Raider in search of lost treasures. Interesting note is that this character was honored a star in the Walk of Game and has earned a Guinness World Record for being the “most successful human video game heroine”.

And to think, she was originally just an Indiana Jones clone.

Actually, this isn’t a fan cosplay. Karima Adebibe is the official model for Lara Croft. She basically cosplays Lara for game promotions on radio, TV, and other media. She also had a small role as the sacrificial maiden in the movie Alien vs. Predator in 2004.

I still think, even if she’s being paid to look like Lara, she does an awesome cosplay. Professionalism at its finest.

    She was formerly a sales assistant at the clothing store Topshop. Misspelled her last name though, it’s Karima Adebibe. ^_^
