Introduction: Samus Aran From the Nintendo Game Metroid
It's Samus Aran, heroine of the Nintendo action game, Metroid, wearing her Varia suit of armor--but in small, squishable, yarn form.
How she came to be: a gamer girl asked me if I could crochet the Samus character in the amigurumi style, and behold, here is my yarn interpretation. It's the Japanese-inspired, KAWAII, cute, big-head look for your favorite cannon-toting video game protagonista.
You can make this 6-inch tall yarn doll yourself, or sweet-talk your favorite auntie into making it for you.
