Funny DIY Tomb Raider Costume

I’m obsessed with this! The normally over-sexualized Lara Croft costume is turned on its head by hilariously making fun of the retro Tomb Raider games. Because of late 90’s video game graphics, Lara became notorious for her polygon-shaped chest. You can easily recreate this funny costume using a bent piece of cardboard under that iconic blue tank.
