|I still have a long way to go before I attempt Samus, but she is most certainly my dream cosplay. I've admired her since I first played Super Metroid around the age of 5 and I discovered that the kickass hero killing all the aliens in this game as in fact a beautiful woman. I was surrounded at that time with a lot of the media really trying to push girl power with bands like the Spice Girls and TV shows like Sailor Moon and Xena: The Warrior Princess but I think what I liked about Samus was that they weren't constantly shoving her gender in your face. She was just a badass person with a huge gun and a no-nonsense attitude towards aliens... oh who happened to be a woman. I guess I liked that.|
Anyway, I'd love to make her Varia suit one day. I have some ideas on how I'd like to make it, I just need to do some more research into the materials that I'd be using. I can't wait to start, but I think I want to get some smaller armor projects out of the way first before I start embarking on this project.
