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.

Handsome Jack! :D
Death from DARKSIDERS. If only my brothers were as interested in the game as I am, we could complete the HORSEMEN.......other than Fury of course
I dressed up as Pikachu when I was like six...maybe it was the same costume?
Anyway, I'm going as Ness this year.
My friends have told me I could pull off being Link.... :P
Im going to be Aiden Pierce from Watch Dogs.
For halloween be something scary like slender
Not this year but I am hoping to dress as Kilo from Syndicate at some point. Fairly easy in comparison to Isaac Clarke.
The Ultimate Gamer! Decorate myself with all the special pre-order dogtags, pins, and do-dads that come with games, wear a Nintendo controller as a belt...lol
Going as Ash Ketchum this year :D
I have a football game that night so I'm just going to be a football player.
The wife and I decided to go with Final Fantasy XIII-2 this year. The only couple I know of in there is Serah and Snow.
I was thinking about dressing up as Sweet Tooth (but I decided against it since I don't care much about dressing up for Halloween). I think I would have made a fine ST, got long hair - just make it stand up and dye it orange w/red highlights (to make it look like a flame), get a ST mask and white pants with red polka dots and suspenders. My body is pretty much the same build as his. Oh well.
The "That man was me" part was funny but I think I can top that. I grew up in Hungary so we don't have Halloween but we have something similar in the spring I believe where you dress up just like for Halloween (except no trick-or-treat-ing). Now when I was 4 yrs old my parents made me dress up as Little Red Riding Hood and I had to go to kindergarten like that... everyone thought I was a girl (I'm not if anyone's wondering). Oh and the worst part... my parents still got pictures of it. Take that! Pikachu! Pffftt! That's nothing!
I've never dressed up for Halloween (I know, that's sad I guess) and don't plan on it, but if I could, I'd love to take a crack at Big Boss. I could always stealth attack my way through contests. . . (muh ha ha ha!)
