Lara Croft from the 2013 release of Tomb Raider.
Cosplayed by: Ana Aesthetic

I'm so, so, so happy with how the photos turned out. Darrell saw me in costume at MTAC and literally demanded we shoot on Monday when we got back home to Atlanta. How could I say no to him? By far, this is my most iconic photo shoot (and photo) to date. Having the chance to be Lara Corft was an amazing experience. So many girls have taken up her mantle and a many photographers have paid homage to her throughout the years. To be amongst their ranks is an honor, and being able to work with Darrell on this project, having a chance to bring Lara to life through these photos, is one of the main reasons I love cosplay.
This character means so much to me. Tomb Raider was one of the first games I ever played where I really felt connected to the protagonist - a strong and independent female lead; an inspiration to so many lady gamers. Thank you Darrell for making this happen. ♥
