This was a very basic costume. I went for an 80s look, since that's when the original NES Metroid came out, and wanted to look a bit spacey so I used a metallic fabric (that and I admit I love metallic spandex and other fabulous fabrics, probably more than is healthy or normal). The bodysuit and boot covers are a 4-way stretch metallic spandex, I modified a KwikSew pattern for the bodysuit and the pattern for the boots was obviously custom so they would conform. The wig is a Ferrari from Arda in Mako Green with some light styling to fluff up and trim the bangs. The hand cannon was a heavily modified toy cannon with a lot of parts taken off by hand or dremel and readjusted, with a few additions as well to keep it in place, then painted a dark metallic green to match some of the contrasting pieces. Since it is based off of a sprite, I didn't have to go for any specific look, so it helped in creating a unique piece.
