Thread: Metroid Prime 3 + Halo 4 male cross over suit - PED Suit

  1. Metroid Prime 3 + Halo 4 male cross over suit - PED Suit

    >OPEN IMAGES IN NEW TAB<
    >RESOLUTION IS SUPER HIGH<



    Well, its been a very long time since I've been active on here. Not to mention all of my PC issues have been fully ironed out, minus a few issues I'm having with my browsers but I can work around them.

    Anyways, onto the business; I was beginning to run short on ideas, so I gave myself a rather daunting task. To make the iconic armor of the galactic bounty hunter, Samus Aran, finally available for the opposite gender! Mind you, there was a heavy influence from the Halo universe as well as Destiny. I wanted to be able to take the uni-sexual design and turn it into an all around, none gender specific suit. What better way to eliminate that obstacle by blending in a Halo-esque aesthetic system and armor placement? Funny enough, this very careful blend of Metroid Prime and Halo 4 had the best possible outcome. As of 3 days ago I completed the PED suit (as well as the Varia suit) both in their respectable male variants. I also made both suits so they have an optional arm canon deal, that thing isnt mandatory ya know :P but its great for authenticity!

    Speaking of which, I'm sure your dyeing to see both of these variants. Given though, the Varia suit is much more Halo-esque since I wanted it to look like a "military standard" combat skin. I also had to remove the incredibly massive shoulder pads since they were heavily conflicting with the over all aesthetic of the suit and were just being impossible to work with.
    I'll shut up now so you guys can look at the pretty pictures!







    So there it is! Thus far, the PED suit is the only one that has been converted and modified into a foam template format. Depending on how much positive reinforcement the Varia suit gets, I may also do it as well. For now though, the suit will not be available for Pepakura since it is still in its developmental stages. I'm sure there will be many revisions of each part since going from Google Sketchup straight into Pepakura, there is always room for improvement!

    I will continue to update this thread with screen shots (and potentially real pictures) of the suits over all progress.

    Drawing some comparisons between the metroid and halo suits I'd have to say the helmet (especially in the "Dark Samus" pictures) feels very a bit like the Stalker helmet, and the chest piece in the first two armor types looks like an up-armored Wetwork, from the front at least.

    Thatís the whole reason why I decided to do this, because both Metroid and Halo have been what I grew up on. I first started out as a Metroid fan, saw the first Halo 2 commercials and instantly said it was a Metroid rip off, then I got my hands on a computer and a copy of Halo and I fell in love with it! I just find it hilarious that I thought Halo was a Metroid rip off, then a few years down the road I absolutely loved both franchises. Iím also thinking about releasing the Varia suit unfolds on here as well.

    I agree with you on those, even though the Metroid Prime armor and Halo 4 armor are 2 completely different types of design.

    Wow, between you and L3X, your skills with google sketchup ASTOUND ME. At first it hit me funny (the model) everyone always matches up Chief and Samus (don't get me started, just don't there -_-) So seeing them both incorporated together made me laugh.

    The models look great, and from you previous work, I'm sure they will be recreated fantastically as well

    I totally love this!! It looks so amazing, I wish I thought of something this awesome. I made a varia suit a few months ago and I seriously love it and I've been contemplating making the Phazon Suit again and seeing this REALLY makes me want to. Awesome work!!

    Very nice re-imagining of this armor- I like it.

    I think the Varia suit version looks good, thought I would encourage you that if you've gone this far with this concept that you keep pushing to get a version with the classic shoulder bells. Halo Reach in particular had some large (and if you ask me, down right goofy) shoulder Pauldrons.

    For example, if you are trying to keep with the modular and swap-able design that MJOLNIR has, perhaps a larger round bell with a pole like attachment on the inside would allow it to be attached. It's kinda hard for me to put in words, but I'm basically imagining a hollowed out ball except that there is a support beam of sorts that would slot into the bicep/upper arm to just slide or clip into.

    Personally I was never a fan of the PED suit, but you did it justice.

    The concept you have in the middle looks like a recoloring of the Varia suit in the Phazon version- is that correct? I ask because the Dark suit from Prime 2 has much different pauldrons. You might be able to make a version for those too if you wanted swapable variants.

    Over all this is very cool, and I think you'll find plenty of interest. Samus has always been sought after in cosplay and one major problem is that there have never really been any public pepakura files. The ones you CAN find either cost money (and aren't of the best quality or user friendly) or someone has them, lets the community know, but hoards them because they want to make a badass Varia cosplay before anyone else but they never do and thus the files never see the light of day


    There is a wonderful member on the RPF who is working on a Varia build as I type this and she's been gracious enough to maker her files (as she makes them) public.

    I'll save this thread- I'm eager to see where you take this and if you ever end up handing the templates out I'm sure you could get a few donors to compensate you for your efforts, I know I would pony up myself

    Great work!!
