The character is Lara Croft, the fictional protagonist of the Tomb Raider video game series.

Lara Croft is for me the idealized version of a woman on many levels. She is sexy, intelligent, tough, athletic, cultured, well- traveled, and has this kind of mysterious charm that shines though. I can't see any real woman matching up - but that's the reason why she became my idol and my hero. Who wouldn't want to be like her or have the life she has?

I love to dress up as her because wearing her clothes gives me the feeling to be as strong and independent as she is - at least a little bit. Besides the fun, this really helps me to improve my lack of self-confidence.

Most of my costumes are self-made. Either I sew them from scratch, or I search in basic local clothing stores for clothes, which look similar to what I need. If I find something proper, I change or add the necessary details.

How long it takes is different from outfit to outfit. Mostly, I make several versions of one costume, so it becomes better step by step.

The reactions of my fans are very kind and constructive! It's unbelievable, how many lovely people I get to know through the cosplay. And I'm glad to see that others can appreciate all the effort I put into my costumes.
