Metroid Prime - Samus Aran Helmet Replica by JohnsonArms Metroid Prime - Samus Aran Helmet Replica by JohnsonArms
Here's a photo of the finished helmet worn by Samus Aran in the game Metroid Prime. The phenomenal sculpt is by Steven Lee who is normally known for his awesome Halo helmets. I fabricated the breather tubes and installed green LEDs inside to give a ghostly look to the person wearing the helmet. I also did the paintwork which I hope does it justice. (It had been a long time since I played Metroid)

Sorry the photo isn't the best, I will switch it out soon with a better photo taken with the DSLR. Thanks for checking it out and please let me know if you'd like to commission one for yourself :)

This piece is amazing - I've been trying to find a replica helmet for quite some time now and this is by far the most accurate one I've seen. Any idea if more will ever be available in the future? Great work!

I'm really sorry I missed your comment back in November.  I get a lot of inquiries here on dA and sometimes I miss a few.   I'm actually working on another helmet if you're still interested, but I'd ask that you email me at so I don't miss your message again :)

first off i have to say how awesome this is, you did a totally great job its very accurate looking. and now i have a question since im planning on making my own full cosplay of samus aran's gravity suit, did you use anything as a base for this when you started like a motorcycle helmet or something similar or was it made from scratch?

That's going to be awesome!   This was actually built from scratch so no helmets were used in the process.  Not that you couldn't', it's just easier to make a universal size which can be customized with foam to fit the wearer.  When the time comes, let me know if we can help supply the helmet!   Thank you very much :)
