We've seen some brilliant Metroid cosplay in the past, but I can safely say that the above is the most authentic translation of the characters as they appear in-game.

Animator Daniel Cattell, also known as ChozoBoy, constructed two costumes of heroine Samus Aran and a living Chozo Statue out of cardboard, recreating their sprites from Super Metroid. As you can see in the gallery below, looking at the costumes head-on completely shatters the illusion, but viewing them from the side is like witnessing the game literally come to life.

Dan actually debuted these costumes last year, but it wasn't until recently that Nintendo Power got in contact with him for an interview that'll appear in an upcoming issue. If you want to read the interview and view even more photos, hit up his deviantART page at the link below.

Dragon Con probably has the best cosplay

There's a guy here with such serious cosplay game that, dressed as Nicholson's Joker from Burton's Batman, he actually has three cosplay henchmen behind him. I don't think I could ask three friends to cosplay as my underlings. Maybe he paid them. more

TGS cosplay nailed Sora's goofy ass clown shoes

Those Sora shoes at 30 seconds. The coolest, grossest thing. Also, we need some new filming techniques for cosplay videos beyond "slow mo, then drop the bass and spin around people a bunch." Where's the Citizen Kane of cosplay videos, you know?  Any of ya'll dressing up for Halloween? I'm going to be a joke. more
