the costume is really awesome! but what I really like is that in this photo it really feels like your Samus standing out on some alien planet scoping out your surroundings as the weather beats on your suit, very cool, props to you and the camera guy
Stunning work, and not only for this cosplay, but also for the other ones you made. Though the Metroid Varia and Gravity Suits are my favourite, being an old fan of the Metroid series (since I was 6 years old ). And btw, you make a perfect Samus ^^. On this pic it almost looks like you're on the Tallon IV surface for real, with the rain and all
LOL, I don't know much about those materials so I decided to google them. Lo and behold, I find this [link]
Your pretty infamous . I can't find much on the materials though, well aside from the fact that Larissa Fabric is also used in upholstry .
Is Lion Board worked by carving? How heavy is it? Your metroid outfits look like they would be pretty hefty.
Sorry about the endless questions, I'm just curious. I've always found suits like your metroid ones fascinating and exciting. Being able to toss on some bad-ass gear and feel a little closer to the characters I've played as in video games, or watched on movies, or even read about in books.
All of your cosplays are really cool, I admire the amount of effort and time it must of taken to hone your craft to the point where you can make such amazing costumes. Thanks for sharing them on the web so people like me would have the opportunity to see them .
I had to import the materials from Japan, as far as I know you can't buy it anywere else yet but foam/eva and regular pvc/vinyl fabrics is pretty close to Lion Board and Larissa. It's possible to carv Lion Board and it's super light. You can also shape it by heating it. The larissa fabric is very simular to pvc/vinyl but when you heat it you can stretch the fabric without it looking stretched
