Finally got around to editing this cosplay tutorial of the backpack I wore nearly a year ago! Whoops. Anyhoo, I needed a backpack for my classic Lara Croft cosplay for Wizard World Philly, and just could not find any mini ones online that could pass or weren’t ridiculously priced.
So, with a stop at Joann Fabrics, I dived into the remnants bin and found this brown, outdoor faux leather that worked perfectly. And it was cheap! I was able to carry my phone and wallet in it easily, and it was the perfect addition to this cosplay.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Brown faux leather (I used a heavy outdoor faux leather)
- Craft foam
- Paper to draw and cut out your template on
- D-rings (x2)
- Velcro or snap closures
- Hot glue/gun
- Strong fabric glue
I also got some professional photos done while there. Thanks to John Kim!
So, feel free to check out my cosplay tutorial below! 🙂
