If you want an effective — though unbelievably time-consuming — way to ward off would-be burglars, a 6'10" paper model of Samus Aran would probably do the trick.
Flickr user IAmThatOneGuy (via Nintendo-Gamer) decided to recreate Samus in her Varia Suit from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes out of just paper. As the papercraft is based on the bounty hunter's actual in-game polygon model, it's as close as you can get to a real life Samus standing in your home.
Hats off to you, IAmThatOneGuy.
I give that man my respect.
It's only really encouraging me to rob him...
Too bad it's the Varia suit and not the Gravity suit. It will not do well under water.
super paper metroid...
Paper Suit. Protects against nothing and very light weight, as if you were wearing nothing.
Lady Gaga wears many kinds of materials, and she could probably wear this to her next concert/music video.
The Paper Suit makes you jump high and you can use the wind to travel to distant places... and it scares off burglars.
YOU FULFILED YOUR MISSION.
Seen other papercrafts like this one. Write "life-size Link papercraft" in youtube's search panel. And this one is great too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6m0R9yhYZSQ&feature=related
He is that one guy to make such an ambitious papercraft.
that is amazing! props to him!
Nobody here here heard of Cosplay? I'm doing the same thing on Alphonse Elric's armor to wear to cons.
Wow, that's awesome. It must have taken a lot of hard work to do.
@jordandrako: I'm sure most of us have heard of Cosplay but what has it to do with this? It's a paper Samus, you can't wear it.
Too awesome, but if he was going to go with a suit from Echoes, the Dark or Light suit would've looked more impressive. Great job on this, though (now add color =P)...
O_O Wow. Someone has a little too much time on their hands... (Joking)
That's awesome. The best thing about this paper Samus, though, is that it won't uncharacteristically freak out over Ridley, it won't fawn over Adam with stupid and dull monologues voiced by a mediocre actress, and it won't all around destroy the Metroid I love. This paper Samus has a better personality than the piece of sludge personality given to her by Yoshio, for Other M.
I'm sorry for not being temperate. Rude of me. All round, this is a great statue!
The Paper Suit main weakness is.... water,fire,stalagtites, or anything else. (Even sound)
best title and subtitle ever. I am still smiling
The level of epicness in that is absurd!
