As most of you probably already know by now (well, at least if you’re a fan of the “Metroid series”). Nintendo launched “Metroid: Samus Returns” to the 3DS console less than one week ago (on the 15th of September to be exact, and have no worries, because we’re going to review the game as soon as possible!), and so far the game has done really great when it comes to reviews and fan feedback (hopefully, that will result in some really good sales). That’s also why I thought for myself that it could be a good idea to write up a post about a truly awesome Samus Aran cosplayer. I’m of course aware that there has been plenty of great Samus Aran cosplays in the past (like Fiona Nova, Rizzy no Okuni and Holy Wolf’s cosplay of Samus Aran, for example). Nevertheless, when I saw Tali xoxo’s cosplay of Samus I simply felt like I need to write about the matter.
So who exactly is Tali then? Well, I’m going to let her answer that one for herself:
“Hello, I am Tali and I am a model, cosplayer, fitness enthusiast, and amateur Youtuber. I grew up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I spend majority of my time traveling between Calgary and Los Angeles where I spend most of my time gaming, sewing, crafting, working out, and writing for my website here. I have been an avid gamer and overall nerd for almost my entire life and cosplaying has been one of my major hobbies for longer than I care to admit. Recently, I have been trying to focus my efforts on producing more videos and higher quality costume work. I’m always trying to learn new skills, both in and outside of crafting.” – Tali xoxo
In other words, Tali is a multi-talented person who love Gaming, cosplay, crafting and working out (to name a few things). Funny enough though, Tali is one of few female cosplayers that I’ve heard of whom have stated that she works out (I still have no idea how other female cosplayers can look as fit as they do if they don’t work out, magic perhaps?). Anyways, as for those Samus Aran cosplay photos that I mentioned earlier. Well, I took the liberty to hand pick some of my favorite pictures of Tali as Samus (I’m not 100% sure if all the pictures are from this year, but some of them are from 2016 and 2015). So I have added all of those photos for you guys and girls to enjoy down below 😉
As awesome as that is though, don’t think for a second that Tali is a new comer when it comes to cosplay, or that she has “only” done these Samus Aran cosplays, as it’s not true. You see, in the past she has cosplayed as everything from Tracer (“Overwatch“), Cindy (“Final Fantasy 15“), Ann Takamaki (“Persona 5“), 2B (“NieR:Automata“) to R.Mika from “Street Fighter“. Simply put, there are plenty of other cosplays of Tali that you could enjoy besides her Samus Aran cosplay. So “if” you like what you’ve seen of her in this post, then I would recommend you to check out her other cosplays as well =) (trust me, you won’t regret it!). Anyways, I think you get the idea. So I’m just going to wrap this post up by letting you guys and girls enjoy the rest of Tali’s sexy cosplay pictures as Samus Aran in peace (you will find those pictures down below!).
And with that said, what’s your take on Tali xoxo cosplay as Samus Aran? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
