60 Video Game Costume Ideas
This is going to be the most eclectic gallery of video game costumes you’ll see this year. It covers both male and female, inexpensive and time consuming, and there’s also few in there for your dog. And we mustn’t forget the sexy costumes! Hopefully this will give you a couple ideas if you’re still deciding what you should be for Halloween.
Let’s start off with one of the best video game inspired costumes I’ve seen, not counting cosplay. Travis Touchdown is the protagonist in a game more people need to play, No More Heroes. The detail he put in this costume is incredible. Check out his blog for more pictures and instructions on how he made the beam katana.
Up next is an equally impressive Isaac Clarke costume. Head over to his blog for more pictures.
Here is one kickass dad. He made his son a Megaman costume with working blaster. Click here to see how he made it.
Now this is what I’m talking about! This Sims costume is simply brilliant. I’m lazy, so any way to put as little effort into a costume as possible but still have it look true to the original is awesome in my book. Fun fact: I went to my sister’s video game themed birthday party as my Mii. Cheap and easy, just the way I like it.
