Gameroween 2012 – Video Game Characters that make awesome costumes (Day 7)

“If history is to change, let it change! If the world is to be destroyed, so be it! If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh!”

 

 

Ok fokes, this costume choice is in tribute to the greatest B.A. in gaming history: Magus from Chrono Trigger. Now, now, settle down, settle. I can hear you all loud and clear through the computer screen: “What about Master Chief? Or Kratos? Samus anyone?” All good choices, but Magus is unique in his rise to awesomeness: first of all he’s a prince of a magical kingdom but lost said kingdom when his mother went insane by waking up a planet eating space parasite (long story). Magus, then Janus, was then launched into the future as a child with no way of getting back – every thing he knew what lost to him forever. So what did he do then? Raised the army of monsters to conquer the future, turned the only one who could stop him into a frog (and broke his ultimate weapon), and  all the while working towards summoning the planet eating space parasite (the same one that got the mother) just to kick its @$$. He would have done it too if some punk kids didn’t get in the way; but that didn’t stop him – a true B.A. always has a plan B (for Bad @$$ of course). If you haven’t played Chrono Trigger yet, please do, it one of the greatest games of all time and not just because of the Dark Matter master.

 

 

 

 

At cosplay.com, d1g1tini has a Magus costume all ready to go those who have $125.00 to spend. I would, but I can’t pull of the ‘dark anti-hero’ look – that doesn’t stop the rest of you however.
