Gameroween 2013 – Video Game Characters that make awesomely mediocre costumes (Zombie)


You know people I try to be original with my choices, think outside the box and all that; but I also know which way the wind is blowing and that wind has the smell of putrid, funky, rotting Zombie in it. Thanks to shows like the Walking Dead and video games like Dead Rising, Dead Island and the Last of Us, Zombies are here to stay for now. As such it’s more than likely a few of you are going undead this year (like you did last year, and the year before that) so might as well make it a choice for today. What kind of zombie? Take your pick: fast (infected) zombies, slow (classic) zombie, hunters, boomers, smokers, tanks, witches, T-Virus, G-Virus, C-Virus, Las Plaga, super heroes zombies, etc, etc, etc. What to wear? It doesn’t matter, any old thing will do, as long as its blood stained and has rips here and there. Of course what zombie costume would be complete without say brains or screeching every so often. And get there you go people one Zombie, the Pumpkin-Headed Turkey Claus of costumes (and at least that one was original).




Gameroween 2012 *Special* – WTF/FTW Characters that make awful costumes (Day 6)

No… Just. no.


Well people we got something special for today; a non-game character costume choice. See I know Gameroween is all about games and Halloween, but what I just saw gave me no choice but to suggest it outside the rules of the event: Pumpkin-Headed Turkey Claus. Now there is a website called ‘RetailMeNot’ where they deal with coupons for many different department stores and services. Since the holidays are coming up someone at RetailMeNot had the bright idea to ‘invent’ a name for the 3 month holiday season: ‘OctoNovemCember’. Then they must of thought they needed a mascot for their new creation and thus Pumpkin-Headed Turkey Claus was born. He is, and a quote:


the King of OctoNovemCember, that magical shopping season when the great deals from one-day-only holiday sales are available every day. He embodies all that is good about the holidays, from the pleasant glow of a jack-o-lantern to the comforting warmth of a Thanksgiving turkey to the gift-giving spirit of old St. Nick. Pumpkin-Headed Turkey Claus is a savvy, sociable being who’s dedicated to making sure that shoppers around the world save as much as possible on holiday gifts and more.”


And that’s all I can say because how can I follow up with that statement. The costume itself is as Hodge Podge as what it represents; the only reason I suggest this costume is because it is not only the most ridiculous idea I’ve ever heard but in general the worst idea ever. It is so bad and slapped together so quickly that it ‘must’ be worn this year. Why? To show the world that no matter what anyone else wears this year it had more effort and care put into it than Pumpkin-Headed Turkey Claus. The only down side is someone has to wear it to make that point – and it won’t be me.
