Young version from Metroid: Other M
Last Updated: 08-20-2012
When I first played Other M, I loved the artwork/design for Young Samus. Granted, I'm not a crazy metroid fan nor do I care for the story line of Other M or many of the nitpicky things that hardcore fans have issue with, BUT that does NOT take away from Young Samus herself.
I love this costume, I just wish I'd get a little more recognition. I've had people mistake me for Sam from StarGate SG-1, but even then I'm lucky anyone has a good guess.
The pants were from the thrift store. I don't have a photo, but on the left butt-cheek below the pocket there were these two HUGE & HIDEOUS hawaiian flowers embroidered on in LIME GREEN and NEON FUSHIA with GOLDEN YELLOW. WTF. I ripped that shit off real quick. Well, it took a while, but you get my drift. I didn't even pause to get a picture, though I wish I did just to prove it... I mean, who in their right mind puts that on camo? Seriously?! Nonetheless, I thrifted for MONTHS until finding this two days before con. I was extremely happy they weren't cargo pants too.
The boots I owned. I'd like to get more accurate, higher laced boots. I couldn't find gloves that worked so I went to Party City two days before con, bought cheap $7 gloves, and cut off the fingers. My sis, LC, made me those felt patches and cardstock badges last minute. The wig was from The Five Wits "Yosh! Princely Hero Type" wig and I got it $10 off on sale! WOO! I owned the tank top, which changes between me wearing an olive green one or caramel brown one.
Now, the shirt was a $2 men's shirt from the thrift store that I modified. And trust me, that will NEVER. HAPPEN. AGAIN. Incredible pain turning a small men's shirt into a fitted female army brat's shirt. But it came out great imo. Still needs some refitting once I get better at it.
To improve, I would like to: add leg gun holster and gun, better knee pads, proper biker gloves, sheer black arm warmers, new patches/badges, more accurate headset piece & more higher laced boots.
UPDATE: I recently bought a pair of biker gloves from online. Not terribly happy with how they really look, but I guess it was worth the $5 shot.
Also, my sis littlecrater made me the metroid hat I've been wanting! I named him Andrew.
Now worn: AX 2011, ALA 2012, AX 2012, AX 2013 (though briefly)
