10 of the Saddest Video Game Costumes Ever

Video Game Costumes

It’s Halloween once again, and every year a dedicated segment of nerds try to go to their favorite games for costume inspiration. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I’ll be focusing on the latter. Check out the gallery after the jump of the worst video game costumes I could find.

1. Bowser (Super Mario Bros.)

Video Game Costumes - Bowser

Overlooking the contradictions of a “plush” spiked tortoise shell, it’s the Carrot Top wig that elicits a big ol WTF?

2. Dante (Devil May Cry)

Video Game Costumes - Dante

Here Dante looks more like the Pick Up Artist than a fearless demon slayer. He always was quite the diva though wasn’t he?

3. Isaac (Dead Space)

  Dead Space Costume

Here Isaac brandishes his trusty weapon a…large piece of bread?

4. Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)

Video Game Costumes - Jill Valentine Costume

Well, there’s a beret, and a gun, and a teal shirt, but um, I think there might have been one other requirement…

5. Link (The Legend of Zelda)


It’s exceptionally hard to make Link look even MORE feminine that he does in the games. Bra-vo sir…or madam.

6. Master Chief (Halo)


The helmet is decent, but the cardboard/life jacket armor is a bit sketch. And the “SMG” looks like two guns involved in a tragic head-on collision.

7. Mega Man (Mega Man)



8. Big Daddy and Little Sister (Bioshock)


This Bioshock duet looks more like Steampunk Dorothy and the Tin Man than anything else.

9. Samus Aran (Metroid)


I thought this was an amputee from Road Rash, but no, it’s Samus Aran. A bit more red would have gone a long way here.

10. Pikachu (Pokemon)


Ever wonder what it would look like if you skinned Pikachu and made him an iPod cover?

    The big daddy and little sister (rosie big daddy) where actually really good.

  • This is a great blog post, I’ve learnt a lot.

    Keep up the good work! 🙂

  • Bagina

    It’s Destin, not Dustin,dumbass

  • Spacetree

    This isn’t a very good list. None of these are really terrible. All of them are either meant to be goofy (like the Mega Man one, which wasn’t actually bad at all – or do you have a problem with him being black?), not meant to be professional, or clearly works in progress (like the first big daddy pic – maybe you should do your research next time).

    Or maybe you should stop making shitty lists all together.

  • CBC

    I think the Jill is the coolest person on this list! Totally make better lists dude.

  • PortalFTW

    Ya that is Destin from Screwattack.com and that costume was supposed to be bad.

  • sex, porno, sex izle, aduld, porn, sex sitesi, seks, seks izle

  • Haha. That’s really cool. The man on mega man costume is so funny

  • ThisPostisBullShit

    Let’s see the costumes you could hand make.

  • jfkdsl;

    Don’t you guys have anything better to do than to make fun of people who work hard on making their own costumes? I’d like to see what you guys could make.

  • Mateus Carneiro

    I was not really expecting to come to this site to see someone making fun of fans… sure, not super good costumes but…

    • chrisk

      i agree, a mean article. what if someone looked at his writing and tact with the same obnoxious snarky lens?

      • Mateus Carneiro

        Yeah… and they are bringing back some old bad posts… I’m a step away of giving up this blog.. =
