Cosplay model Ri Care has unveiled a brand new costume based on Zero Suit Samus from Nintendo’s Metroid series that will blow your mind. 

In a preview on Reddit, Ri Care cosplay posted a photo of the amazing outfit even equipped with the Paralyzer weapon. 

Everything from the iconic blue shine, bits of armor and heels are on full display. Nothing about the character’s iconic design seems out of place.

“Gun, armour and shoes crafted by me,” she wrote in a reply to the thread. Surprisingly, the model even claimed it only took her a few hours to make the props. “Crafted her gun and bits of armour/shoes in only a few hours,” she said on Patreon.

In a post on Twitter, she detailed how the suit was made by fellow cosplayer Brandon Gilbert and The RPC Studio while the blonde hair came courtesy of Arda Wigs.

What is the Zero Suit? 

Samus is a bounty hunter from the Metroid universe. While her traditional Power Suit armor packs a punch with advanced weaponry and durability, the Zero Suit leaves a lot less to the imagination and allows for more advanced movements.

The iconic suit first appeared in Metroid: Zero Mission on the Gameboy Advance, a remake of the first-ever Metroid game back on the NES. After escaping from the planet Zebes, Samus is shot down by space pirates and stripped of her power suit. 

Zero Suit Samus is a unique fighter in the Super Smash Bros series, first appearing in Brawl back on the Nintendo Wii, though she only appeared after Samus used her Final Smash in that title, or by holding the L/R button while selecting Samus. She debuted in Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS as an individual fighter with a Final Smash of her own. 

The suit and character in Smash was a major reason why Metroid grew in popularity, especially given the fighter’s place in the meta back with Smash 4 on the Wii U. Notably, it was ZSS legend Nairoby ‘Nairo’ Quezada who ended Gonzalo ‘ZeRo’ Barrios 56 tournament win streak with the fighter at MLG Vegas 2015. 

Unfortunately for anyone wanting to check out Zero Suit Samus in a new game, you’re going to have to wait awhile. While Metroid Prime 4 was announced at E3 2017 and was being developed by Bandai Namco, it was revealed in January 2019 that development had been restarted with Retro Studios.

Still, until the new game is released, at least there will be plenty of cosplay to check out as Ri Care’s.

Apex Legends cosplayer plunders loot on Olympus as gunslinger Loba

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
