The best cosplay images rarely involve someone who just has a nice costume, or someone who can act the part, or even pretty photos. It's usually the result of all three things combined, something this amazing shot certainly manages.

Photographer Balázs Sármai and model Csenge Huszár, with make-up and effects assistance from Karolina Neszteli and Dániel Hámori, are to thank for this shot, which I bet Eidos were wishing was official PR material for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, not simply the work of some fans.

It's just one of many brilliant shots we're featuring in this evening's Fancy Pants, your weekly round-up of some of the best in cosplay.

To see the larger pics in all their glory (or so you can save them as wallpaper), right-click on the "expand" icon on the main image above and select "open in new tab".

Fancy Pants is a look at the world of cosplay (costume play), where people dress up as their favorite video game characters. Sometimes it works! Sometimes it...yeah.
