FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Halloween Costume Ideas For The Last-Minute Gamer

Posted on Tuesday, October 29 @ 14:11:07 Eastern by ryanbates



Eggplant Wizard – Kid Icarus
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Take an eggplant costume, modify it with one giant eyeball and a magic eggplant staff. Accentuate with cape.
Upsides: Once the prepwork is done, any gamer will instantly appreciate the originality.
Downsides: It's... not exactly the sexiest costume.
Take It To The Next Level: Remember that guy who dressed up as Captain N? Also, photo ops with any Pits or King Hippos.




Elena – Pandora's Tower
 
Difficulty: Hard. While the actual outfit won't be too difficult (platinum blond hair, short white dress), the arm thing has to be constructed with various emanations.
Upsides: Pull off that arm thing, and you have a winner.
Downsides: JRPG fans will know who you are; others will require extensive backstory.
Take It To The Next Level: Eat anything given to you that night. But first make a disgusted, pouty face.



Elizabeth – BioShock Infinite
 
Difficulty: Moderate. White dress with blue accents, blue mini blazer. Think Pan-Am without the pillbox hat.
Upsides: Everyone loves Elizabeth, as she's very recognizable and was one of the first escort quests to truly not piss everyone off.
Downsides: Guess who's fetching everything at the party? That's right.
Take It To The Next Level: Any time you see American paper currency, stage a minor panic attack then go, “No, no... I'm fine, really.”

 

Green & Purple Tentacle – Maniac Mansion
 
Difficulty: Hard. Construction will be needed. You wouldn't think it would be hard to do a tentacle but there you go.
Upsides: Every gamer should recognize you, followed by “I haven't played that game in YEARS!”
Downsides: You may get some disturbing offers to make real-life tentacle porn.
Take It To The Next Level: Any time people try to go around you, refuse to move until they bring you food. Or a can of Pepsi.

 

The Ice Climbers – Ice Climbers
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Baby blue or pink track suits (bonus for velour and ones with hoodies), oversized mallets.
Upsides: Great costume for a couple doing their first Halloween costume together.
Downsides: Another costume where time apart is excruciating. Also, parkas can get hot. Feel free to offer it to Arthur if you need a break.
Take It To The Next Level: Any time you see any character used in Super Smash Bros., bonk it with your mallet.
 


Juan Aguacate – Guacamelee
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Blue wrestling tights or something close, blue lucha mask, wrestling-style belt, boots.
Upsides: You're a luchador!
Downsides: “Dude, look! It's Nacho Libre!/Rey Mysterio Jr.!” 
Take It To The Next Level: Anyone who calls you Nacho Libre or Rey Mysterio Jr, climb up on something and drop an elbow on them.

 
 
Little Mac – Punch-Out!!
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Green shorts, black tank top, boots. The hardest part is finding green gloves (trust me, I tried).
Upsides: Easy, comfortable, recognizable
Downsides: You know how much practice it takes to hold a drink in boxing gloves?
Take It To The Next Level: Have a pink tracksuit handy if you're cold. Just don't stand next to the Ice Climbers.

 

Nathan Drake – Uncharted
 
Difficulty: Moderate. The clothes are easyjeans, dirty white henley, half-tucked. The accessories (holster, etc) may be a little harder.
Upsides: Nathan Drake is hot.
Downsides: Nathan Drake is not real.
Take It To The Next Level: Come out to Vegas and show me your half-tuck. I mean... uh... moving on.


 
Ness – Earthbound
 
Difficulty: Easy. Yellow-striped shirt, shorts, red cap, backpack, baseball bat, yo-yo, psychic powers (this part may be the only hard part).
Upsides: Almost all gamers know Ness, and a lot of non-gamers too.
Downsides: Can't really think of any.
Take It To The Next Level: Got friends who need costumes? You could use a Paula, Jeff, and Poo. Also, any time anyone takes your picture, do a peace sign and shout, “Fuzzy pickles!”

 

Nilin – Remember Me
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Maroon top, cargo pants, white mini jacket, streaked hair.
Upsides: Unique, just plain looks cool.
Downsides: The game flopped sales-wise, so expect a lot of “Who are you supposed to be?”
Take It To The Next Level: If the costume bombs, the next day just claim you scrambled everyone's memories and you were actually dressed as Princess Peach.
