Metroid costume completed


Last week, we posted about Joseph DeRose and his dad, Tony, working on an ambitious Halloween costume based on the Metroid character Samus. They emailed to let us know that the costume is done. You can see the final assembly in the video above. There’s also a video of the making of the helmet. Great job, guys!
