Zero Suit Samus by CosplayCousins Zero Suit Samus by CosplayCousins
as Zero Suit Samus:

Samus is such a strong and unique character, I decided to make this costume. I made the navy and lighter blue details out of stretch fabric that I sewed on to the main suit. I cut the emblems out of vinyl, hand painted the designs on, and attached them to the suit since I wanted them to have some dimension. I custom made my ponytail wig out of two wigs that I glued and hand sewed together. This costume was tricky to make and I obviously can't be as cool as Samus, but I tried my best on it.

How did you sew on the navy blue parts at the legs and arms? I'm doing a cosplay with very similar body suit issue and I'm afraid that it'll rip the body suit I bought, but I don't want to paint it because it is in an area that needs freedom to move. Suggestions? I don't have a ton of time to finish this cosplay, so if you had any suggestions to make it easier that would help... I'm doing Aqua from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep in her full armour suit and it's the crotch area I'm worried about.

Oh man, that was the most annoying part of making the suit. I actually made the navy blue pieces separately first and then I hand sewed them to the rest of the bodysuit while I was wearing it to make sure everything was in the right place before machine sewing. There was a lot of trial and error because working with stretchy fabrics is tricky. Good luck with your costume :)

This is the best zero suit I've seen. So many just paint onto a body suit but adding the fabric and vinyl pieces looks so much better and looks really professional. Plus you look like badass (a beautiful one) wearing it :D

Sorry, I want say how you make the base for the suit not the (beautiful) applications. See, a friend of mine ask to me, to ask to you, this question because she can't have a good result to do a tights. -_-''' (sorry for the bad english!)
