I've still yet to see a great Samus. That's one of the better ones (there's another foam one that looks pretty sweet too) but still fails at getting the silhouette right (the chest piece needs to sit higher up on the shoulders and the arms need to go through the biceps rather than between the biceps and triceps to accentuate the broadness of the shoulders. You also need to be it great shape and have a tight corset to pull off Samus' waistline).

I drew a quick pic where you can see where the actual body should sit underneath the armour:

I've actually wanted to build a suit for myself, since I have the perfect body for it (6'3", broad shoulders, small waist/hips)... does it matter that I have a penis?

Pixelninja is my favorite. I went looking for her suit to link here, and discovered she's done the Varia suit *twice* -- AND the Gravity suit. Badass.

My first ever cosplay was Gaige the Mechromancer... so IMO, cosplay whatever you want to. (:

I tried! We made this a month before dragoncon ha! It looks better at night, but next year will be better :)

Yeah, we based our suit off Pixelninja's design. Her suit specifically inspired us to make ours. Here are some additional shots. Thanks for all of the love and, especially, on how we can improve the suit.

And, what the suit was really designed for, night/low-light shots...

We are already thinking of how we can improve the armor. Things like replacing foam with sintra, mounting the shoulders higher, adding lights to the shins, redoing the gun, etc. Any tips, tricks, feedback, or comments are welcome. Feel free to leave the on our build journal at: http://www.therpf.com/f24/metroid-prime-suit-wip-219732/
