Pursuit Through the Ruins by Katsumiyo Pursuit Through the Ruins by Katsumiyo
Whether Samus is in pursuit of her next upgrade or being pursued by the relentless Space Pirates is up to you...after this shoot, though, I was in relentless pursuit of a sandwich. Can't eat with those gloves on. :XD: So hard not to title this "Leap of Faith," which is both the worst title ever and incredibly appropriate. I need to get better with titles...
This will probably be the last or second-to-last picture I submit of my Zero Suit for quite awhile now. I'm pretty sure #metroid-club is getting tired of finding my pictures being referred to their inbox. ^^; Plus, I still have some of Jeane, Olga, and Horo I'd like to put up before I finish my next costume...
Jumping in this costume is actually very sketchy; the shoes have basically no comfort and no traction, so jumping onto firm ground was both painful and dangerous. ^^; Regardless, we got some very cool photos out of it, so I'm glad I did it.
Costume made and worn by me.

Incredible shot, as always! Amazing pose, the twist is awesome, body lines are all graceful, hair isn't in some weird position (always a factor in jumping shots I suppose) and the silhouette is clean. As a dancer and concept artist by profession, all that stuff is super important to me, so kudos! :D

I did some leaps of stuff in Raiden too, and they were probably just as painful. Among others, jumped off a 4 ft ledge onto that cobblestone/concrete stuff, in nothing but swim shoes. No support whatsoever, so my ankles were nearly destroyed. All in the name of good photos, yeah?

Thanks a lot! :heart: Sounds like we might have jumped off the same ledge at some point. I did a lot of jumping. Hooray that we don't have broken ankles because getting out of our spandex suits would have been so hard...

I'm always nervous about action shots. Never know what the limits the cosplayer has....outfit mobility, durability...trust. ^^;

So I have to say.....WHOA! HOLY FRAK! :omfg:
