    But what happens to her when she goes into morph ball mode?

    Cosplayer Talaaya's two-year quest to build her own Varia Suit from Metroid has clearly been well worth it. (Videos and more after the jump.)

  6. Stop What You Are Doing And Behold This Beautiful, Geeky Art Show

    DO WANT

    This is one of those rare times that I regret moving away from Southern California. Hero Complex Gallery, located in Los Angeles, is currently hosting a gorgeous joint exhibition by artists Meghan Stratman and Nicole Gustafsson. Adventure Show features paper art and illustration with a heavy dose of geek culture. In other words, everything I love. For those who can't attend in person (sob), feast your eyes here.

  7. This Mini Metroid Movie Will Make You Want A Full Length Animated Film

    DO WANT

    This Super Metroid animation is so serene and well drawn that you could almost forget that there is a giant monster bearing down on our hero. Of course, the visuals combined with the monster fighting power of Samus Aran are what make me think that this needs to become a feature length animation. The short animation was created by artist Dave Rapoza, who, sadly, did not animate it as a sign of more Metroid movie magic to come, but as a means of learning more about animation. Previously in Metroid

  13. That Time of Year: Cartoon Cookie Cutters

    om nom nom

    Idly, this weekend, I did a search on Etsy for "cookie cutters," thinking that there must be some crazy stuff out there... and I was rewarded with WarpZone, a shop that not only has My Little Pony, Pokémon, and other video game themed cookie cutters on hand, but will also 3D print you a washing machine-safe cookie cutter of any design you like. But what you really want to see is what they have on hand, I know, and what the cookies actually look like. Come take a look!

  15. A History of Video Games: From Pong To BioShock [VIDEO]

    It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

    This may not be an all-inclusive history of video games but it sure does showcase a lot of my old favorites. Metroid, for one. The coolest part though is, the music you hear is created from the sounds and music from the video games themselves. And it's pretty catchy. Give it a watch and see if you spot your favorites. What titles are missing that really shouldn't be? (via Blastr)

  17. This Papercraft Samus Aran is Almost Seven Feet Tall

    If you've been waiting all your life to see a 6'10 papercraft Samus Aran, today is the day your dreams come true and you'll have to find some new dreams. Flickr user IAmThatOneGuy made this awesome, tall Samus figure out of nothing but paper and glue. He used the Samus model from Metroid Prime 2, of the stellar Metroid Prime trilogy. Unfortunately, rolling this Samus into a ball would pretty much be irreparable. Head on past the break for some more pictures of this gargantuan paper Samus.

  18. A Day at the Dog Park With Some Old Video Game Friends [Video]

    Inside of a dog it's too dark to read

    You'd have to think that in between all the battles and levels and missions that video game characters have some down time to spend with their animal companions. (Or non-animal companions. Such as companion cubes.) But if you're a video game character created with the sole purpose of fighting things, then things are going to get messy. And possibly weird. Oh, the things that Duck Hunt dog has seen ... (Dorkly via Geeks Are Sexy)

  19. Life-Size Metroid's Samus Aran Made From Various Nintendo Cartridges

    Originally commissioned for used games retailer JJGames, Metroid's Samus Aran has been recreated using Nintendo cartridges from a few of their older systems, including the Game Boy, Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo, and the Nintendo 64. The seller is claiming the piece is life-size, and measures Samus in at around 5 feet 8 inches, accounting for her diagonal pose. If you act quickly, the piece can be yours via electronic bidding magic.

  20. Pixelated Metroid Cosplay is Way Better Than Sexy Metroid Cosplay

    Metroid's Samus Aran is a popular cosplay character, partly because Samus was the first iconic female video game character who wasn't a helpless princess, partly because Samus is awesome and you know it, and partly because pretty girls like to dress up as various incarnations of Samus -- one of which happens to be Samus in a blue leotard with long blond hair -- and this is the Internet. Dan Cattell and Krystal Belcher, however, took the cosplay in a different direction. Krystal dressed up as the pixelated Samus of old when she made her bones in a big suit of armor rather than a leotard (not counting a certain famous cheat code), and when her gender didn't matter, which is what made it matter.

    Along with Krystal as the retro Samus, Cattell whipped up and hopped into a pixelated Chozo, the iconic keepers of Samus' suit and weapon upgrades. The cosplay is featured in the latest issue of Nintendo Power, a magazine you may be surprised to hear is still around.
