Steampunk Lara Croft Sure Looks Like A Good Idea

I've never really thought about it, but as these photos show, a steam punk Lara Croft could be something quite special. Gritty and grimy like the current reboot? Bah! Who needs that when we've got ruffles, billowy shorts, and an old-timey jetpack!

These photos are from Meagan Marie, who is the Community & Communication Manager at Crystal Dynamics, the home of the Tomb Raider franchise. So maybe she can show them at work and say, hey work friends, do this.

Previously, Kotaku featured Marie's cosplay work -- which varies from amazing to really amazing.

    Ditch the red glasses please.

    Oh god, oh god, OH GOD

    Ashcraft just made an article with about an woman cosplaying an over-sexualized cliche redesigned in the most overhyped and shallow fantasy genre in existance.

    I think this just might be the most ironic thing I have ever seen in my life.

      where's the irony?

      Ironic?
      You use that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

        Don't agree with the comment, but i think the irony is supposed to reflect how Ashcraft always writes articles on how games shouldn't over sexualise female characters etc. etc. yet heres an article about a cosplayer being sexy (???)

          Except that no where in the article does it mention her being "Sexy" he does mention the fact that it could be a potentially good spinoff game, and that she works for the studio that does tomb raider... and that they have featured articles about her before.
          So not really any form of irony here.

    There are two things I hate about this.
    1 - Lara Croft
    2 Steampunk

    I have no beef with the cosplayer.

    Those are so totally the guns from Darkwatch
