My name is Jolene and I am a big fan of the TR-games since I was 6. When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up, I would say 'I want to be a Tomb Raider'. I mean, who does not want to be a brave, strong and intellegent person? Even now in reality, Lara and I have different lifes, Lara helped me to get through some hard times in my life so far. I started cosplay not to be a replica of Lara Croft, but to celebrate this character, who will always have a special place in my heart.

What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was the Remnant Jacket from Rise of The Tomb Raider, because I was playing that game at the moment. I loved the outfit and my first convention was in winter. So perfect choice!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Meeting other people who share the same passion.
What is your favorite costume and why?
The Classic Tomb Raider outfit is my favorite, because I play the Tomb Raider games since I was 6. I always looked up to Lara Croft and that's why that costume is such a statement for me as a TR-fan.
What is the biggest challenge you've overcome while crafting your cosplay?
Convincing myself that I can cosplay Lara Croft and to be proud of what I made. You get easily intimidated by other cosplayers. But the true story is that everyone can cosplay, no matter what! Just have fun and be proud of yourself.
