Ladies of Gaming: Samus Aran

Hello There! Sharon here from Hello There, Blondie!, and I'm coming at you with another installment in the "Ladies of Gaming" series! This lucky lady is a kickass character that is strong, smart, and still manages to make full body armor look hot :P

The main character of the Metroid series is a very powerful female character named Samus Aran. She is trained to be the perfect warrior, and has an power suit with a cannon on the arm. How cool is that?
The character of Samus is almost always seen in a big bulky armored suit, which is pretty misleading if you never played the games. The suit itself isn't the most flattering or sexy outfit, but that doesn't matter because she's a strong soldier who can handle whatever is thrown at her. I haven't played all of the Metroid games, but the ones I did play I enjoyed!

Samus's armor is mainly compromised of the colors red and orange. But when she isn't in her suit, she wears a skintight blue suit and has her bright blonde hair in a very peppy ponytail. Can't have a girly character running around all frumpy, now can we? I drew inspiration from both of her outfits.

Also, one of my beautiful fur babies is named after her. She's also a gorgeous blonde, who sheds a bit more and drools a lot :P

We're a fan of Samus in this household :)
Sorry this post took a bit to get posted! I was working on another look that I attempted several times and decided to put it on hold and skip ahead to Samus! I hope you don't mind too much :)

Thanks for reading!
xoxo -Sharon
