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.”
