Metroid - Zero Suit Samus by Yukilefay Metroid - Zero Suit Samus by Yukilefay
Now you can see the full costume in this picture! :D

I really enjoyed to make and wear this costume. Making the Zero suit took longer than I expected. It looks simple, but making those black lines work was kinda tricky.This wig was the first ponytail wig I styled (Used one long wig and one extension from CosWorx). Pink symbols and boots were painted, and painting is always my favorite part of cosmaking. :D

* This is not the Other M zero suit, but the previous version. The Other M version is slightly different.

When I saw it, I was impressed by the picture and how well they made the model look like Samus. But when I realized the deviant made the costume herself, I became extremely impressed. And on top of making the Zero Suit, she also styled the wig! Simply amazing!"

~vingaard said: "Fantastic work reproduction the whole look of the character. =Yukilefay shows us that she knows how to work with any kind of material and achieve impressive results."

Hi Yukilefay! I would like to make a Samus costume (Zero and Varia Suit) and yours is the best I have come across. I am completely new to this and was wondering if you had any tips you could give me?

Hello! I am undergoing the making of a Samus Zero Suit costume, and I am beginning to collect my materials. I would LOVE to know what material the bodysuit you're wearing is! I've tried looking at spandex, zentai, pvc, but none of them look exactly like the Zero Suit. However, the suit you're wearing looks exactly like the material of her suit in Other M! I would very much appreciate it if I could find out what material it is that you used! Thanks so much! (:

Heyy. where did you Get your gun and cosplay? ^_^ I love it
redeyekado666 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012  Professional General Artist
You have successfully convinced me that Samus is a real person, who also happens to be a cosplay enthusiast, of all things. This cosplay is absolutely stunning. It was like you were born to fit this role.
Sorry to be frank, but you also captured the sexuality of the character clashing with her personality. Nintendo designed the zero suit specifically to give Samus a softer, more sensuous side, but left her trademark serious demeanor to maintain the tough girl image. You captured this perfectly. Excellent work.

Very cool.

Space Pirate: Curse you METROID!
Samus: Uh.. That's not my name.
Space Pirate: You. Floating jelly brain thing. Tell everyone that METROID is coming!" lol.
