Hero of the Federation by Katsumiyo Hero of the Federation by Katsumiyo
Quick and dirty upload of another picture from Fanime last year. It wasn't my favorite, but I love how dramatic it is. The background reminded me a bit of the architecture you see in the Federation flashbacks from Other M, so I figured I'd give it a title that suited that aspect.
Costume made and worn by me, gun is a commission from AIDSmachine.
Photo by EBK. Thanks again for the shoot, Al!
Samus Aran/Metroid Nintendo.

Who needs power armor?
You look great without it.

my marching band is doing a nintendo-themed show this year and i might be asked to dress up as samus aran.. any tips for making a costume?

Well first, I wouldn't recommend marching in either her Zero Suit OR her armored suits. If you want something fun, do Justin Bailey's version. It's cute, iconic, and much easier to move around in. Just buy or make a leotard (you can make one in the right color or dye a white one as long as it's cotton) and get a green or blonde wig and you're pretty much done. One show probably wouldn't be worth the investment if you made the whole suit, and besides, it's not that easy to move around in, so you wouldn't have any fun, either. ^^;

really? it looks comfortable from the picture.. rats. and anyway i'm not technically marching since i'm in colorguard, i'd be more artistically walking and twirling a flag.

but thank you!! i appreciate it :)

I'm still pretty familiar with colorguard stuff...trust me when I say you won't want to do that in a Zero Suit, either. XD Bodysuits really restrict mobility around the arms. If you don't like Justin Bailey's version, you can always do the Super Metroid, Zero Mission, or Fusion alternates.

A little bit of constructive criticism: to make it feel more like the federation city, put some flying cars in the background.

Shit, nice! It reminds me of my "ultimate power" photo (which I wasn't even posing for, haha). Samus looks great in this angle, no question about that.

Certain low angles can work really well for Samus; it can be a good combination of femininity and power. :)
