Zero Suit Samus brought to life with cosplay

The Metroid character’s Zero Suit first showed up in the 2004 Game Boy Advance title Zero Mission. Samus is usually seen in her signature Power Armor, although her new look as become just as iconic in recent years.

Cosplayer ‘kyrramarie‘ transformed into the intergalactic bounty hunter for Anime Expo 2019. Inspired by ‘omgcosplay,’ the artist took a selfie in her hotel room and showed fans her jaw dropping costume.

Her outfit is incredibly faithful to the game – from her blond hair which is pulled up into a ponytail, to her silver paralyzer gun, she nailed the Nintendo character’s look.

Kyyra collaborated with photographer ‘blizzardterrak‘ who perfectly captured her as she posed as the bounty hunter. She even re-created the character’s signature fighting stance by holding her gun up in the air.

In another photo by ‘nels‘ the artist showed off the details of her outfit, such as her gray and yellow metal bracelets and her accurate hair piece by ‘skellebee.’ Posing on a set of stairs, she shows off the her signature jet boots which were first introduced in the 2014 Smash Bros title for the Wii U.

I think this is the fastest costume I’ve ever made. I made the gun, cuffs, and shoes within 2 days right before AX ? @skellebee let me borrow her wig and it was a life saver tbh. Now I’m getting ready to start my Blizzcon cosplay, which will probably take months to make! But I’m super excited. I’ve been wanting to do a big build for a while and now I finally have some time ? photos by @nels._ #zerosuitsamus #zerosuitsamuscosplay #samus #samuscosplay #metroidcosplay #metroid #supersmashbrosultimate #nintendoswitch #nintendocosplay #cosplay #cosplayer #cosplaygirl #animeexpo #ax2019

Mortal Kombat is one of the gaming universe’s most iconic franchises and has recently acquired its own movie. One cosplayer has chosen to celebrate in style by transforming into the icy Sub-Zero.

If there’s one franchise that almost every gamer knows about it’s Mortal Kombat. The iconic fighting game has spawned a loyal fanbase, as well as a host of spinoff media, including the 2021 movie of the same name.

The game has even been picked up by sugar free energy drink behemoths GFUEL, who have created 11 unique flavors are inspired by the title’s main characters.

Just in time for the movie dropping on April 16, one fan has created an insane cosplay that will leave you feeling a little chilly.

Sub-Zero cosplay brings in the Ice Shower

Sub-Zero has become one of the game’s most popular characters. The Chinese cryomancer has the power to bend ice to his will, making him a pretty fierce opponent.

Polish cosplayer Cyprian has brought Sub-Zero into the real world with an amazing series of cosplay images. One of these shows him channelling some inner peace while contemplating how best to pull off the perfect fatality as the ice bender.

Seen sporting the character’s deep navy samurai style armor, coupled with the Oni style mask that covers the bottom half of his face, we really wouldn’t want to run into him in the middle of a frosty winter forest.

It’s not just the outfit that makes Cyprian stand out above other cosplayers, it’s his menacing attitude that makes him the perfect Sub-Zero.

Cyprian as some fun as Sub-Zero

When he’s not glaring into the camera though, the Pole is making the Mortal Kombat assassin into an almost lovable character.

One of the best images from the series is of him recreating the classic high kicks that are seen throughout the series, and in turn have become one of the images fans are most familiar with.

The attention to detail in this cosplay is amazing. With the upcoming movie and awesome art like this, we can’t wait to see if  Cyprian brings us any more Mortal Kombat cosplays.

We’d love to see Scorpion, the series’ resurrected Ninja, get down to ‘Rock You Like a Hurricane.’ Why? Because he’s a Scorpion after all!
