The lights are on
If you're going to some Halloween parties this weekend, there's a good chance you might see a gaming-related Halloween costume. We're offering a Collector's Edition of Fallout: New Vegas to whoever can send us the best one.
It can be you, or even someone you randomly see at a party or bar. Here's the catch - we don't want you to just Google some picture from a few years ago, we want to make sure you actually saw it. Make sure you have something Game Informer-related in the frame. It could be as simple as a piece of paper with "Game Informer" on it, but bonus points if one of our magazines is visible in the shot.
We received quite a few entries, but many didn't fit the criteria of having Game Informer in the frame. Before we get to the winner, here are a few of the entries we received:
Chris Palmer and Aaron Apple - John Marston and Mario
Derreck Beard - Chuck Greene
Jose Neira - Sam Fisher (note: there is no GI in the frame, but he did have other pics where he was holding the magazine. This was just the best pic of the costume)
Rob Kehoe - Arkham Goon
Anthony Wallis and wife - Bowser and Peach
Dillon Lloyd - Sackboy
WINNER: Alan Mohary's girlfriend - Poison Ivy
Email the author Dan Ryckert, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
Wow what an interesting concept! I'll keep my eyes open.
Oh now I am definentally keeping my eyes peeled for some awesome gaming costumes.
Ooh, I'm not sure if I'll be going anywhere this year, but I'll definitely keep my eyes open and a camera handy.
awesome cause last year I took a picture of some lady wearing a Bioshock costume!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just wanted to know if it's cheating to find a dozen people hand each one a gameinformer and having them stand around someone wearing a video game costume.
zombies are everywhere. originality people
Ya no thanks...
best gaming costume I've ever seen was at star wars in concert this gut had about everything in the worst accessories ever list that was posted a few months ago plus he actually made it resemble a darth vader costume pretty well ( sadly I only could get a blurry picture of him :( )
I'm going as the engie from TF2!
Here scroll down and let me winnnnn!!!!!!!!
Not that I have it on film, but I saw two incredibly good looking women at a bar dressed up as *** nurse versions of Mario and Luigi. I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
Already have the CE. Any other prices?
Man if I had only thought to bring a GI magazine to Otakon I could've tricked you guys into believing the photos I took of this guy in this all out awesome Warhammer 40k outfit were from Halloween. But I digress.
I saw this family at an Halloween Carnival I worked at my old elementary school dressed as the characters from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. I was blown away (not so much by the complexity of the costumes as by the fact that they were dressed as those characters).
wish I could win.
Doubt I'll win
***, the guy in the zombie Sonic costume is just pathetic lookin. Not only because he, like everyone else, was so stupid as to zombie-fy an already great character, but because he looks half asleep/brain dead.
