Gameroween – Video Game Characters that make good costumes (Day 1)


Halloween is only 15 days away from us all people; but it’s more than its Celtic beginning or the sugar industry trying to make kids (and us by proxy) fat and happy. No, when it comes to this spooky time of the year – it’s all about the gear baby! Where the whole world for one day becomes cosplayers and no one asks why. So in celebration of that fact, Armada will present a daily segment called ‘Video Game Characters that make good costumes’ until the witching hour has arrived. Starting with the pink powerhouse himself – Kirby. Now this could be the easiest costume to make, it’s basically a ghost (a white bed sheet with two cut out eye holes) but only pink with red shoes (come to think about it, it could a perfect setup for Pinky as well). For more hardcore ‘weenies out there, get a rounded costume of some kind, put the pink sheet over it, then put flip-flops on your hands,and boom – instance Kirby. The best thing about this choice is that when you pig out on candy you can say: “I’m staying in character” to retain your dignity. got this pic, but was incorrect about Kirby being a 'anime' character. Nice try though.
