12 Nerdy Video Game Halloween Costumes For The Lazy

By: 10.19.12  •  2 Comments

I have a complicated relationship with Halloween. I like candy and being able to dress like a nerd in public with no social repercussions, but I’m also lazy. If a Halloween costume takes me more than 10-minutes to put together, I’m having no part of it.

I know I can’t be the only one like this, so this article is dedicated to the nerds who absolutely doesn’t give a s–t what they wear 364 days a year, and aren’t going to change for Halloween. Here are 12 video game related Halloween costumes you can pull off with a minimum of effort…

Puffy haired chicks and pills you need to carry with two hands. Dr. Mario knows how to party.

Dr. Mario

Wear white lab coat. Throw prescription drugs are partygoers. This one always goes over well.

Master Chief

Dress in normal button up shirt and slacks combo. Act normally. What, do you think Master Chief goes to parties in his friggin’ robot suit?

Samus

Same as above, except be a girl and wear girl clothes.

“Awesome mid-90s sedan bro.  Cool if I give it a few flying uppercuts?”

Ryu

Tear sleeves off a white shirt. Wear red sweatband. Punch and kick the host’s car.

Pac-Man

Choose four partygoers to be “ghosts”. Spend the evening alternating between running away from them and chasing them into a closet. A note — having some form of jaundice really helps with this one. Try to work on that between now and Halloween.
