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.
