    Samus costume for my girlfriend

    Soooo

    Long story short my girlfriend continuously surprises me and keeps getting better and better.

    She's never had an issue with the fact I have multiple costumes (am a nerd in general) and my friends and I frequently suit up in stormtrooper suits.

    The other day she mentioned she'd wear whatever I want if I had a costume for her. (yes she did bring up the golden bikini, but there's not too much to it. Yes I know that's not a bad thing)

    SO I'm hoping to make her a Samus costume for Halloween this year so we can go out together and both have awesome costumes.

    Looking for help from any members here if you've seen a decent costume or reference material anywhere.

    Google searches turned up some good hits on cosplay sites so far.

    I might take a Pepkura route for most of the costume and detail it as time goes on.

    I'm thinking it won't be as much armor since I don't want her to feel cramped like she can't move, so I'm thinking from the thigh up to the chest piece will be fabric undersuit with a few hard plate details that won't restrict movement.

    I also want to make the helmet very comfortable for her so she doesn't get freaked out wearing it for a period of time.


    Any advice appreciated

    If you have a wii go rent Metroid Prime Corruption. Best FPS on any Nintendo console ever. Plus its good source material.

    I say that to her all the time, but she's convinced she's the lucky one


    Not sure yet on the suit, but she likes the orange/candy red and gold color scheme so a suit with those colors probably.
