A Gallery of Six Video Game Icons that Should Never be Cosplayed


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.”

    Link is similar to Peter Pan in that girls can pull it off better because ladies have a more similar structure and physique of peter pan and link than men do. That’s just my opinion though.

  • The second Mega Man reminds me of Tobias Funke.

    I disagree about pikachu. I’ve seen some babies that were Pikachu for Halloween…. adorable.
    Their round pudgy bodies and adorable faces fit perfectly. Maybe have a (for people over 3) for this one

    You do realize that your first example for Link is a girl… She got her hat signed by Miyamoto at E3 one year. I love that costume.
