Cosplay Wednesday – Super Metroid’s Samus Aran

The first original 2D Metroid game since 2002’s Metroid Fusion, Metroid Dread has finally made its way to the NIntendo Switch. In honor of this adventure, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a unique cosplay of the titular character.

The appropriately named ChozoBoy is joined by Space Pirates and Ridley in these unique cosplay shots of Super Metroid’s Samus Aran. Made with cardboard and acrylic paint, these costumes were featured in Nintendo Power, Kotaku, Destructoid, Joystiq, and even Dorkly.
