Just because a video game character is legendary, does not necessarily mean that they should be cosplayed. Sure some of these have to do with a species difference, but mostly, it’s just about the creepiness factor.
Here are six video game icons you really should think twice about dressing up as before your next convention. Or you might end up on a list like this.
1) Pac Man
It’s hard to pull off dressing like a geometric shape. In fact, it’s impossible, so don’t even try. And making “wakka wakka wakka” noises when you walk by is not helping.
2) Sonic the Hedgehog
The problem with Sonic is that no matter how hard you try, you’ll always end up looking like a reject from the set of “Cats.”
You really can’t capture “menacing” with a plush foam shell on your back. The chick below almost has it, but not quite.
Even if you get every detail perfect, you will still look like a complete fairy. Not an elf, a fairy. It’s kind of sad when the absolute best Link cosplayers are two hot girls.
He’s a pint size electric rat, you’re a tubby human. It’s just not going to work out, and you’ll most likely scare little children in the process.
6) Mega Man
Your Mega Man costume can be absolutely perfect, but there’s something about the get-up that will automatically make you look like a doofus. I feel like an eight year-old kid would have a better chance of pulling off the look.
