I recently received a custom MGSV Quiet head sculpt some time ago, thought I'd use this head on the Mr.Toys Sexy Sniper kit, instead of the head it came with. But then had a change of heart and decided to make Lara Croft instead.

I went with the Desert Eagle as her main weapon of choice (couldn't find ones that resemble her trademark dual pistols). (Also, ordered a pair, but sadly only one arrived) She'll be dual wielding as soon as the other one arrives.



Here's her tools:
- Frag grenade
- Smoke grenade
- Flashlight w. holster
- Compass
- Medic pouch
- Rope/Tourniquet
- Purple chem light





- Magazine pouch w. assorted mags


Next is a leather harness I made for her, I've place a small magnet hidden under the back strap. Originally was planning on having a small backpack that attaches magnetically, but the bag I ordered was way too oversized.


So now the magnet holds her rifle instead.


Here's some close-up of the face:



I would love to hear what you guys think, any advice or criticism is highly appreciated.
Thanks for looking :)

[Update] 20th Jan 2017

Scratch-built backpack completed. Here's the process:

Made from scrap pieces of leather. The bag is comprised of 3 pieces glued together:


Next, I stitched the edges to hide the choppiness from gluing. Then I painted it:


Metal clasp added, the clasp fastens close with magnets:



Here's how it looks on her. The bag is attached to the harness with magnets, and the gun is also attached to the bag with magnets:

Re: Lara Croft (Phicen) Kitbash

Love what you've done with this figure! Very nice choice for the head sculpt; I think it really makes the character. Are you still planning on giving her a backpack? It looks like Lara chooses her equipment carefully, and only takes what she needs.
Definitely, I'm currently working on the backpack's design

I kinda miss this "version" of Lara (big chested), too bad that now enix has to be "political correct"... amazing custom btw! XD
I completely agree, loved the versions from TR Legend and Underworld. But I gotta say, the reboot was quite enjoyable

Awesome!

Superb!

Wonderful!

Outstanding! Love the magnetic trick to carry the rifle. Maybe not "realistic" but closer to the video games which can be just as important. Great work!
Thank you so much :)

sexy, my only critique is why no muscle body? i always thought Laura as an athlete.
Yes, this was one of the dilema I faced when deciding which body.

Mighty damn nice work, indeed.

Very original thinking on the components.

Re: Lara Croft (Phicen) Kitbash

She looks great. The head sculpt is fantastic. The outfit is incredible. I love the belt. It puts Batman's to shame. I would love to have seen her with a backpack, but having the rifle magnetically attach back there is great too. Nicely done. I want one!
