Metroid Prime 3: Corruption: Samus Aran

Samus Aran (サムス・アラン?) is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Metroid video game series. Introduced in the 1986 video game Metroid, Samus is a female bounty hunter usually fitted with an armor suit with weapons that include beams and missiles. Throughout the series, she executes missions given to her by the Galactic Federation while hunting the antagonistic Space Pirates and their leader, Ridley, along with the energy-draining alien parasites called Metroids. Orphaned at a young age, Samus was brought up by the Chozo alien race, which trained her as a warrior. The Chozo also gave her the Power Suit, which features the ability to collapse Samus into a sphere to roll through tight areas such as tunnels.

This cosplayer was suggested by my lovely friend Edalyne over Facebook. She and her boyfriend are HUGE Metroid fans (though I think he is more than she is) and this is one of their favorite cosplayers.

Samus is cosplayed by the lovely yukilefay on You can also find her on her site. This armor is absolutely fantastic. It looks so well constructed and this picture, while not as theatrical as some other cosplays I've featured, shows off the armor and construction beautifully!

This picture was edited nicely and I love the colors of the background in relation to Samus.

This photo is much softer but it's a nice contrast to the previous pictures.

Thank you, yukilefay, for this amazing Cosplay!

Disagree? Think you have a better Samus cosplayer? Want to suggest a cosplayer for tomorrow's post? Leave me a comment or drop me an e-mail!

HELL YEA. They could go make a live action movie and use her costume is that awesome :D I want to steal her cosplay. Geo would go crazy if I owned something like that. And yes Geo is the bigger Metroid fan, but I do love metroid too :)
