Metroid Papercraft Pattern - Full Size Samus Aran Helmet - Cosplay


Oi! You can't buy your own item.

Digital download (2 PDF, 1 ZIP)


PDF or Pepakura (PDO) pattern for Samus Aran's helmet from the Metroid series of Nintendo games. The design is based on the polygon models from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Some additional smoothing was done to make it look a little more realistic.

Zipfile contains helmet sized for both adults and children.

Pattern is 13-14 pages, and the final result is approximately 11" wide, 10" tall, and 14" deep.

Please note that this model is slightly different from the one included in the full Varia suit.

---- What am I getting?
You can instantly download the PDF or PDO pattern to build the helmet yourself.

---- What do I need?
You will need:
- a PC computer (sorry Mac users)
- ability to unzip files (available on WinXP and later)
- Pepakura Viewer software ( if using PDO files
- card stock (60lb or 110lb recommended) or paper and cardboard
- printer or printing service, glue (I use Tacky Glue)
- craft knife (e.g., X-acto knife)
- a cutting surface (self-healing mat, old cereal box, or something similar).

---- How do I use Pepakura?
See for some basic tips. There are also lots of tutorials available on Youtube.

---- How do I use this for cosplay?
You can just wear them as paper, but you might want to harden the completed construction somehow. Youtube has numerous tutorials for doing this using resin. Search for "Pepakura resin". You may also want to use Bondo to smooth the pieces to prepare them for painting. Search Youtube for "Pepakura Bondo".

---- Why isn't there any color in the pattern files?
Check the menus in Pepakura to turn on or off the texture.

---- Can you print the pattern and send it to me? / Do you send me the pattern on paper?
Sorry, no. First, it costs something to send it, and who wants to pay more? Second, it's much faster for you to download the files instead of waiting for the post office to ship it to you. Third, with only one paper copy, if you make a mistake, there may be no way to fix it, but with digital files, you can just print out a new sheet and try again.

--- Can you build this and ship it to me?
Possibly. That may depend on how many other projects I'm currently working on. Bear in mind that it will cost additional money and time.

Such an awesome pattern. It was time consuming to put together, but not difficult. The instructions were really clear. My 4 yr old was so excited about it.
