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.

"Human Male Engineer," Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. Costume is 80% done, I just need to cut/paint some parts and then hot glue it all together.
My school lets us dress up for Haloween and have a Haloween dance, thinking about going as the Slender version of Slender Man, ya know, tux, dress shoes, white gloves, I'm pretty tall so thats covered...Can't wear masks though... Thats probably for the best considering I wouldn't be able to see out of a Slender Man mask... Lol
I want to go as Solid Snake.
Just put a large enough cardbox and BAM! Solid Snake!
Volke from fire emblem is pretty cool, i did him last year and will probibly again this year
nice one pikachu, XD
I thought about being Max Payne one night and Walter White another, but since I'm working this weekend, I decided not to put in the effort. I could have bought a bald cap, grown out my facial hair, purchased the Max Payne 3 shirt from Rockstar's website; it would have been awesome! Stupid work...
My boys are Darth Vader and Captain Rex, I'm Bobba Fett, and my wife is Princess Leia. All Star Wars, and very entertaining. I really wanted to go with the Jabba the Hutt outfit, but $75 just seemed to be too much for a one off costume.
I have a homemade keyblade from being sora during homecoming. haha
Isaac Clarke all the way baby.
connor would be the most fun to dress up as
Finding someone dressed as a really hot Tali would be the beeeest!
Garrus Vakarian would be my choice.
I was going as an assassin. Getting the replica blade, have the AC necklace from Powerup Awards and picking up a white hoodie. Was going black but I'm no Master Assassin!
id have liked to have been Corvo..... but i didnt have time
My most embarrassing costume (and most awesome) was when I was in 7th grade and I went as a porta-potty. You heard me. It was a massive cardboard rectangl painted to look like a porta-potty, with a working door/fake lock (in use/etc.), and a carboard toilet inside that my head was sticking out of. I had an eye-square to peer through the door when it was closed. I had to take it off though, because it's damn hard to sit in a desk as a porta-potty.
Anyways, this year I was planning on going as Handsome Jack from BL2. We'll see how it works out if I can get the mask right.
i have a job.....so no
Psycho from Borderlands! MORE! MORE MEAT FOR ME!
Bane from either Asylum/City (or maybe Tom Hardy instead...) ;-)
