Halloween costumes. Cosplay. Whats the difference?
Here is our Top 5 Halloween costumes for gamers!
8 Bit Link (Legend of Zelda)
Link from the Zelda series is a go to costume for many gamers. Some of these costumes are cheap and pathetic. Others are gloriously detailed. But at the end of the day, its still another Link costume. We thought this 8 bit Link cosplay gave it a cute twist. Its both awesome and ridiculous to see giant sized 8 bit sprites walking around in real life.
Strider Hiryu (Strider series/Marvel vs Capcom series)
Although he’s gained popularity in the last few years, you don’t see many Strider Hiryu cosplays. This is something we think needs to change. Strider is a bad ass future ninja… who doesn’t want to be a future ninja?
Doom Guy (Doom series)
Ok, I’ve never seen a Doom cosplay, so this gets major points for originality. Id Software’s classic FPS is famous throughout the world, yet I could only find about 3 cosplays for it. Weird.
Samus Aran (Metroid Series)
For sheer complexity and cool factor, Samus makes our #2 slot. A proper Metroid cosplay is hard to find. Too many of the home made cosplays look sculpted, but every now and then you find one that looks shiny and perfect. Awesome.
Colossus 3 (Shadow of the Colossus)
Some cosplayers are ambition. Then there are some that are really ambitious. We’re always happy to see Wander from Shadow of the Colossus running around, but rarely do we get the joy of seeing one of the Colossus. If you’re going to cosplay something like this, it pays to go big… or colossus.
