I'm planning on making one too, but I know it won't be nearly as good as yours!
I read that you used stretch vinyl fabric for the colors and shine of the "metal" instead of painting it... How about the middle part? Was the light gold "bathing suit" part made from the same larissa fabric? If so, did you use a sewing machine to put the pieces together?
Hello pixel ninja. I replied to your response a little bit bam from my iPod, wasn't sure it worked and you received it. Basically I was just bugging you for some tips. Tips like how to get the materials you used (looks real though), the process you went through to make it-how you made it (especially the arm canon). Ps. You are an amazingly creative, resourceful, hardworking and dedicated, and very beautiful young woman. I can't wait to see more of you with you astonishing creations. Keep it up.
Thank you! I got the materials from Japan. The materials I used is lionboard (similar to craft foam and EVA) with larissa fabric on top (vinyl fabric). For progress pictures I´ve uploaded a bunch of pictures on my homepage: [link] I didn’t upload progress pictures of the arm cannon but it´s just lionboard and larissa around a cardboard cylinder.
AMAZING!! I read about you in Nintendo Power in the latest issue!! I love your suits :3 Although, I have some tips for you: 1. Samus doesn't really let her hair out of her helmet. 2. Try placing some black rubber so as to not show the neck. Otherwise, great cosplay!
