Metroid Cosplay Is Blowing Socks Off

Here’s Japanese cosplayer 11Vadu with one of, if not the best Samus outfit I have ever seen.

The accuracy, the movement, it’s incredible.

I think what I like best, though, is the material used for the bulk of the chestpiece. It’s...modular foam floor mats, cut and shaped, which you can see in this vid that doubles as a making-of, as well as a showcase of the suit’s lighting effects.

The first two vids, and the pics below, were all taken at the 2019 Toyama Cosplay Festival.

It’s so rare to see Samus cosplay where the proportions are actually close to how she appears! I’m impressed!
