This is a costume I actually made twice. I decided to buy another plain zentai suit and correct the mistakes I made on my first costume which made it's debut at Nintendo power's 20th anniversary party (there were plenty - smearing, inaccuracies, mistakes, etc.)
I'm very pleased with the outcome of my improved zero suit, and I've already worn it on 3 occasions - Video games live at the beacon theater, Halloween, and Sakura Matsuri at the Brooklyn Botanic garden. I got the best photos at Sakura Matsuri, even though it was a steamy 80 degrees outside (not full body spandex friendly) I adore Samus, and this is by far my favorite cosplay.
I was going to retire this suit back in October 2010, but I just can't stop going back to it.
