We love a good cosplay here at NL Towers, but it's rare any one cosplay will make us say 'phwoar' in written form. This cosplay of a Space Pirate from Metroid by Dan Cattell shows that you can take a costume idea in any direction you see fit.

We're not sure how it all looks from the front, but from the angle we can see it looks simply fantastic. Frankly it's surprising we haven't seen more of this kind of 2D sprite style before, but then again we could just be looking in the wrong places.

Does this interpretation of an intergalactic swashbuckler mutant give you inspiration for your own cosplay dreams? Let us know in the comments below. If it doesn't, let us know what you had for breakfast in the comments below.
