Nintendo Halloween costume ideas, anyone?

I might be late to the party, but tonight I stumbled across the most impressive fan-made cosplay of Samus’s Varia Suit I’ve ever seen, and with Halloween right around the corner, figured it would be fun to share. Nintendo costumes are now a dime a dozen, but it’s rare to find true quality in the sea of cheap knock-offs.

This impressive homage to our favorite bounty hunter took six months to create, and was made by the prolific Yuki Lefay. The attention to detail definitely gives the previous undisputed queen of the Varia Suit, Pixelninja, a run for her money. And needless to say, her take on the Zero Suit makes my earnest effort from Halloween ’08 pale in comparison.

Looking for more jaw-dropping inspiration for your Nintendo- or videogame-themed Halloween attire? Check out more of Yuki’s impressive repertoire below:
