HOW IS MEAGAN MARIE CONNECTED TO TOMB RAIDER?
An avid gamer from “the furthest reaches of her memory,” Meagan first became passionate about gaming when she set her pre-teen eyes on Tomb Raider extraordinaire Lady Lara Croft. In Meagan’s words, Tomb Raider was the first game she “took ownership of.” (source). And, oh boy, did she!
Now, as the Sr. Community and Social Media Manager of Crystal Dynamics, Meagan’s basically responsible for all things Tomb Raider and Lara Croft. She also makes a pretty good cosplay Lara when she’s doing promotions for new Tomb Raider installments. Check out her “Croftwork” on Deviant Art.
WHY IS MEAGAN MARIE FAMOUS?
Sure, Meagan has a glamourous job at Crystal Dynamics, but that’s not how she got her fame – or most of her fortune. Interestingly enough, the largest portion of her income comes from social media and success as a cosplayer! (source). Or, of course see for yourself. Check out her Facebook page here.
But quit her day job? No way! Meagan is a dedicated gamer through and through. Her passion for the industry is what makes her one of our favorite (team) cosplayers. She’s been involved with Game Informer for a long time. She’d even written an article on the ugly side of gaming in 2013.
