Make a Metroid to Go With Your Samus Aran Costume

samus aran and metroid

Cosplayer Lara Lunardi has feelings about Nintendo and loves to cosplay as Samus Aran. She made the bright bodysuit from a two way stretch metallic spandex, and she made the costume even more awesome by building a Metroid to go with it. The artificial organism from the game of the same name is used as a bioweapon, but this prop is harmless. Lara started with a clear plastic ornament and cut it with a dremel tool. She took the following steps when the shell was complete:

After having the shell done, I started to mold the brain/intestines/whatever that red thing is out of Sculpey. I made 3 balls and pressed them on the surface. After having the 3 balls done, I stuck them together with even more sculpey! I put it in the oven for 15 minutes and it was done.
