Metroid originally released on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1996. The game’s iconic protagonist Samus Aran has anchored what has been one the longest running franchises in gaming history.
A cosplay artist has shared her incredibly faithful take on the sci-fi character’s Zero Suit. Her perfect depiction is so good, it’s almost if she has rolled out of the screen with her morph ball.
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.

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
