Posted on Tuesday, October 29 @ 14:11:07 Eastern by ryanbates
Phoenix Wright – Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Difficulty: Easy. Blue business suit with pin. The only hard part is the hair.
Upsides: Easy to pull off.
Downsides: Even though it's an American hit these days, many will still not recognize Mr. Wright.
Take It To The Next Level: Make a sign that shouts “OBJECTION!” on one side and “HOLD IT!” on the other.
Servbot – Mega Man Legends
Difficulty: Hard. Not only do you need the blue robot body, you need the Lego-looking head.
Upsides: Look at that smiley face!
Downsides: Everyone thinks you're a Lego guy.
Take It To The Next Level: Anyone dressed like Mega Man? Looks like you have something to do all evening.
Tetra – The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Difficulty: Easy. Blue top, pink scarf/kerchief, white pants.
Upsides: Comfortable, and everyone likes pirates.
Downsides: Mmmmmm... nope, can't think of any.
Take It To The Next Level: About halfway through the party, change into Tetra's princess dress. Leave the ponytail.
Tingle – The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Difficulty: Moderate. Green full-body spandex suit, red speedo, green cap. Visit your local sex fetish store for availability.
Upsides: People... will... certainly remember you.
Downsides: Chances of getting laid plummet to 0.
Take It To The Next Level: ...Actually, on this one, please don't take it to the next level.
Tiny Tina – Borderlands 2
Difficulty: Easy. Black and white little girl costume, band-aids, roll around in the dirt for about 30 minutes.
Upsides: Recognizable, and you can drop all the swear words you want.
Downsides: Liberal use of swear words plus alcohol may lead to a different kind of explosion.
Take It To The Next Level: Someone at the party you don't like? Give them the most severe haranguing of their lives, Tina.
Tom Nook – Animal Crossing
Difficulty: Hard. Raccoon suit, apron or business suit.
Upsides: Instantly recognizable by anyone caught up in the Animal Crossing craze.
Downsides: Instantly recognizable by anyone caught up in the Animal Crossing craze.
Take It To The Next Level: Someone at the party you don't like? Give them the most severe haranguing of their lives, Tom.
Tron Bonne – Mega Man Legends
Difficulty: Moderate. Pink top, skirt-ish thing, leggings. Hardest part is getting the hair right. Don't forget the headband!
Upsides: Cute, fun, within her rights to take everyone's candy.
Downsides: The "recognizable" factor is really hit or miss on this one.
Take It To The Next Level: If you see any other Capcom characters (or Marvel characters) challenge them to a fight. Run away if they take you up on it.
Ulala – Space Channel 5
Difficulty: Expert. Orange PVC tube top with the Space Channel 5 logo, orange PVC miniskirt, orange PVC arm length gloves, orange PVC, pink pigtails, microphone. You should be able to find all this in the same place where you can get the stuff for Tingle.
Upsides: If you can pull it off right, there's no denying it's a sexy look.
Downsides: Reminding people all hard up for Ulala that no means no.
Take It To The Next Level: If the Casper Slide or the Cupid Shuffle comes up, guess who's the star of the party now?
