Elearia, also known as Samus Cosplay, takes Samus Aran cosplay very seriously. He has an incredible version of the character’s power suit that seems to incorporate every detail from the game. The visor lights up, the armor is segmented and beautifully painted, and all the shapes are on point. Elearia worked with others to bring the project together but specifically handled making the gun, applying the dip paint, and the shoes. Work in progress photos (there’s one below and more at Facebook) show the genesis of the armor and how Elearia took the stylized look and applied it to his frame. Watching all parts of the costume transform from raw materials to what you see in the above picture is something else — a ton of work went into crafting this.
