The lights are on
Video games are cool. Dressing up is...also cool? People seem to like doing it anyway. With Halloween approaching, which video game icon are you thinking about dressing up as?
In college I knew a guy who dressed up like Pikachu one year. It was hilarious because it was a kid's costume and it didn't quite fit over his burly frame. Everyone laughed because it looked ridiculous, and he was a dork. That man was me. I think that's the last time I've dressed up as a video game character. (I all the pictures from that night were burned, so there is no proof this every actually happened.) If I was going to dress up as someone this year, I would probably go as an assassin from Assassin's Creed, because they show off a lot of ass, and no one laughs at them.
What's your most embarrassing Halloween costume? If you look cool no matter what you wear, then what are you dressing up as this year? If you're not dressing up, what would be your dream costume? If you think dressing up is for dorks and little kids, then get out of here. This is a safe zone! We don't hurt each other by laughing at them.

ranger from war in the north
Ghost from Modern warfare 2!!
I'm going as Corvo, almost done with my mask now.
I'm thinking of going as regular me, but under a Metal Gear Solid cardboard box. If I can't find a good size of box, I'm going to try to turn the classic sheet ghost into a Pac-Man ghost.
I'm planning on dressing up as Cole Macgrath. I think it might turn out really well.
If I dressed up, maybe I'd try for the Francis York Morgan look. Idk. If I was a girl I'd do Tali. Maybe some guy should try an awkward Tali costume.
I'll be starting work on a War (Darksiders) costume while My girlfriend just completed her Demon Hunter (Diablo III) costume. Won't be done for Halloween but sometime later.
