When you ask a woman of a certain age, especially a somewhat nerdy woman, who their favorite video game character is…Lara Croft is going to dominate those answers.
Why? Because Lara was the first lead character in a video game that wasn’t a princess and didn’t need to be rescued. She was the one doing the rescuing in the iconic franchise Tombraider. Lara didn’t want to live a trust fund life. She was too busy jumping off cliffs, shooting bad guys and being an adventurous bachelorette.

DIET AND FITNESS
Before this shoot my idea of a diet was only eating junk food on the weekends. However, all the cosplayers stepped up their fitness routines and shared diet goals and FAQs in a private Facebook group—which was an incredible help.
For my diet, I cut out sugar, limited sodium intake and only had 50 grams of carbs on gym days for three weeks. Then the final two weeks leading up until the shoot, I followed this diet.
