SMC Spotlight: Tomb Raider with Jade Jolie

Here on SMC when talking about cosplay we often mention the ideas of iconic characters, and if we had to make a list one of those characters near the top would certainly by Lara Croft.
As a gamer I can remember being first introduced to Lara Croft in the original tomb raider for PSX, and looking back now, I can’t believe it’s been twenty years. Lara holds a big place in a lot of people memories and for good reason. Lara is such a strong female lead and something the gaming industry was desperately in need of when she first appeared on the scene so many years ago.

That being said this is a site about cosplay, and lets get back on track. With Tomb Raider and Lara being around for over twenty years now, this means one thing for sure, lots of different potential cosplays. Unlike a lot of other characters Lara Croft has certainly evolved over the years, and I for one have to say love the look of the modern Lara from “Rise of The Tomb Raider”.
