8-Bit Samus Aran Costume By ChozoBoy

I definitely think that ChozoBoy over at deviantART deserves a standing ovation for his remarkable 8-Bit Metroid Samus Aran costume!

The folks over at the Nintendo Power magazine were so impressed with the costume they used it in this month’s issue!

  1. Kris Knives says:

    Still awesome and 16-bits is better then if he made a black and white gameboy version of Samus.

  2. Kris, I wonder why you seem to consider those the only two options. That dude has a reasonable approximation of the original, actual 8-bit Samus right on his tee shirt. That’s actually the slightly inaccurate NES box art depiction.

    But since you mention it, absence of color aside, I think Game Boy Samus was one of the best looking versions.

    By the way, I’m not criticizing 16-bit Samus, just pointing out the erroneous label.
