Video Game Icon Samus Aran in an Epic Cosplay!


You can call her Sammy, Newborn, Entrusted One, Hatchling, the Hunter, Protector of the Galaxy, Space Cadet or even Princess, among many of the array of the numerous appellations given to her, but she’s more commonly known as Samus Aran, an intergalactic bounty hunter and the main protagonist of the Metroid series.


Left as an orphan during a Space Pirate raid on her home of K-2L, Samus was adopted by the mysterious Chozo and taken to Zebes where she was infused with their DNA and raised to become a warrior. Upon becoming an adult, Samus joined the Federation Police where she served under the Commanding Officer Adam Malkovich, but she ultimately left to become a Bounty Hunter, though she was nonetheless recruited by the Galactic Federation on many occasions. Armed in her iconic cybernetic Power Suit, Samus has become famous for her accomplishments on missions others thought impossible.


Samus Aran is an iconic character in gaming and with a variety of costumes to choose from, such as a sleek, turquoise battle suit to her full body armor and those massive pauldrons, to a simple yet classic fuchsia Justin Bailey suit, modelled here by the talented cosplayer Marie Grey. Marie Grey is a fantastic cosplayer, with a huge cosplay portfolio consisting of characters such as Tiny Tina from Borderlands 2, Wonder Woman, Dark Phoenix, Zatanna, Monster High’s Laguna Blue and Samus Aran. It’s a kick-ass cosplay that is truly epic!
