Tomb Raider Cosplay: Lara Croft (Illyne) Cosplay 13 MAY 2012

French cosplayer Illyne is renowned for her awesome Lara Croft cosplay photo shoots, and this time around her depiction of Lara Croft from the original 1996 Tomb Raider is certainly no different, as she dons those famous short shorts, grabs her pistols and strikes a pose!

The original 1996 Tomb Raider introduced what was to become one of gaming’s most recognizable female protagonists in the form of Lara Croft, the athletic, gun-toting, no nonsense archaeologist with a thirst for action and adventure, not to mention a deep-seated desire to unearth and solve all sorts of ancient mysteries.

In her first adventure, Lara gets thrust into a race to search for and collect three mysterious Scion artefact fragments, linked to an ancient Atlantean myth and which are scattered across the globe. Her adventure takes her in amongst other places to the lost tomb of Qualopec in the mountains of Peru, the tomb of Tihocan in a monastery in Greece and finally the City of Khamoon in Egypt.
