Cosplay Wednesday – Metroid’s Samus Aran

 Metroid Samus Aran Yukilefay Cosplay Featured
Metroid fans were thrilled this past Tuesday when Nintendo announced the triumphant return of Samus Aran’s Zero Suit Samus form. Packing some new moves and a new set of heels, she is ready to come back onto the scene. In honor of this, Gamers Heroes has tracked down a real-life version of Nintendo’s intergalactic bounty hunter.

Yukilefay (aka Thaís Yuki Jussim) has made a name for herself as “that Samus girl.” Basing her design off of the Metroid: Zero Mission version of the character, Yukilefay made this costume herself and has even does shoots to help charity.

Yukilefay also expanded her talents, so she crafted herself a cosplay of Samus Aran’s Varia suit. Packing 73 high bright LEDs, EVA foam, and enough fiberglass to choke a horse, her outfit is true to form.
