Father and son team make Samus arm cannon, more coming

A letter to my father:

Dear Dad,

I use to think that you raised me well, and were the best father in the world. I now know the truth: you and every other father in the world except for 11-year-old Joseph DeRose’s father are not the best father’s ever because you didn’t make me a Samus Aran arm canon for Halloween, and plan to eventually make me an entire Varia Suit at some point in the future.

Sure, making me a Varia Suit would technically be dressing me up as a girl, but I’m cool with that. Just look at the video above. That arm cannon is awesome. It even has its own login and plays the “Samus intro fanfare.” My Halloween costumes didn’t even have LED lights, let alone sound effects.

Look, I still love you, but I just thought I’d let you know that you’re in second place for best father ever now. If you’d like to keep track of the man now in first place you can head to the Vaira Project website.

Love,

Matt

P.S. Read Flixist, it’s awesome.
