Hi guys! My name is Sara and i am the creator of laracroftcosplay.com. I am here because I was given the opportunity to contribute to this blog by showing you how to build your very own Tomb Raider wetsuit! Thanks to this awesome catsuit, the process is incredibly easy!

Here’s a “before and after” look at the catsuit.

STEP 1

With a pair of sharp scissors, cut the legs off the catsuit. Turn it inside out and fold the ends upward so it makes it bikini style, then hem it.

STEP 2

Once the suit is hemmed, the majority of work is already done!  It’s time to add the yellow ribbon.

Cut the approximate lengths of the ribbons by laying them on the suit. Get ready to sew them on.

STEP 3

You may choose, as I did, to hot glue the ribbon onto the collar.

This makes the collar more rigid so that it stands up straight.

STEP 4 

Stitch the rest of the ribbons onto the suit.

You can always just use fabric glue if you’re not comfortable sewing!

ALL SET

With these simple steps and the addition of a high quality brown wig, your Lara Croft wetsuit look will surely be a hit. If you’d like to add more details as Sara did, she has created two additional tutorials for the backpack and the utility belt!

Fever Brown Wig - Shop

This is the wig we suggest, as it is safe to be styled with heat products up to 248 degrees F.

You can wear it straight as Lara, and curly for a fun night on the town!
