For those of you not old enough to remember the original Nintendo game Metroid (I'm one of those people), Samus was the main protagonist who kicked butt and looked awesome doing so. It was the first time I could remember knowing a female character playing the lead hero, a fact which definitely upped the cool factor.
Since then the Samus character has become a cult favorite and it's no surprise the design has inspired Cos-play advocates everywhere.
Up until now though, I guarantee you've never seen a costume come even close to the attention to detail and quality like the version created by Chelsea Mills. With the help of a 3D Printer, Chelsea has created a costume masterpiece that would make most professional Hollywood costume designers green with envy.
