Lara Croft’s many faces

Lara Croft's faces

With 18 years and 10 Tomb Raider installments on her shoulders, Lara Croft remains as the queen of gaming. As a matter of fact, in 2010 she was distinguished by Guinness World Records as the most recognisable female character in a video game (in your face, Chun-Li!).

Lara, an eternal sex symbol, has gone through many redesigns along the years, improving her polygon count with each incarnation. (the ponytail is still there, though). The team from HalloweenCostumes.com have made an amazing work detailing her looks in every game, adding a clever comparison between the in-game and the promotional models.

  1. My favourite is 2003, my least favourite (and not at all Lara Croft version) is the 2014 one. It’s not all about realism, I wish they big game makers would take that into consideration.

    • I agree that realism isn’t always necessary; games don’t need to be realist, but they do need to be plausible (at least when they have human characters), and in that sense I think that Tomb Raider did a great job. I really enjoyed last year’s entry, and it was one of the first times I cared about Lara.
