I wanted to share my first experience being an Ambassador at the PR Event for the newest Tomb Raider Game! The Event was on 20th July 2018 in Hamburg, Germany. I was asked two weeks before if I want to be there as the new Lara Croft. I could not say “No” but I knew that two weeks are very short to make a whole new Cosplay!
But I tried! I had almost every material at home so I just had to force myself to sew the Top and the Pants. I already had some gloves and my wig. The most things that worried me were the Shoes, the Holster and the Harness. Everything came just in time. The shoes even one day (!) before the event.
I was so happy that I made it in time so I drove on friday to our Location and I saw Meagan after 1.5 years again and met some new people! The team was very nice and funny, I felt like I would be a member of them <3
The first four hours was press only, so they could interview, review and play the Demo. I saw some cool and exclusive footage and can’t wait to play this game by myself! The best part was at the evening when fan members of the Squaer Enix Community came in! It was so great to see old and new faces again and talk a lot about Tomb Raider! The was even a FAQ for the new Game and Franchise. After a delicious barbecue we made a Quiz about TomB Raider where people could win some Poker Cards, Autographs and even two ROTTR Themed Razer Mices! Some questions were really tricky!
The SE Community could also play a demo, but an other version than the press. There was a lot of scary moments, excitement and of course: fun!
It was a very stressful day, but in a positives sense! It made so much fun and I’m very happy and thankful, that Square Enix gave me the chance being there as an Ambassador <3
