Samus Cosplay Costume Kicks Incomprehensible Amounts of Ass

Check out the real life Samus in action

Here at Nintendo Life we’re not that geeky that we spend all of our spare time scowering the net for photos of ladies in videogame themed cosplay costumes, but when something as awesome as this catches our eye it would be remiss of us not to mention it.

The lady in this lovely Samus Aran space suit is none other than ThaĆ­s Jussim, aka Yuki who is a 26 year old Brazillian cosplayer.

The suit took 6 months to build, is lit by 73 battery powered LEDs, weighs a whopping 23 pounds and cost only $350 to build with help from her family and friends. We have to admit to being very impressed with the results.

Dow Jones board to oversee Murdoch talks

The board of the Wall Street Journal's publisher, Dow Jones, has taken control of negotiations over a possible sale to Rupert Murdoch, replacing the company's dominant Bancroft family in the driving seat.

The move, announced today, was widely interpreted as a sign of impatience at the pace of talks. It came just as the internet entrepreneur, Brad Greenspan, who founded the social networking site MySpace, revealed that he was entering the fray with a partial offer for Dow Jones.
