Video games have ruined my life. As if they were not enough, now video game costumes have stormed into the stores. I think they will ruin my second life too. And there are video game wigs as well. They will cost the third. And so on! But guess what? Who cares! We're video game freaks. We can have as many lives as we want. ;)
On that note— I would like to share some iconic video game wigs and costumes so you can answer the quest for the best video game costumes for any occasion.
Though Halloween is gone, the fire to wrap yourself around these costumes should not die. Fancy dress or pride parades, events, or festivals— these video game character costumes will turn you into your favorite video game model. So what are we waiting for? Let's mash the button like those crazy teenagers on a mission.
#1 Poke Friends Wigs - Pikachu wig | HPO
Pika mikaaaa! Pikaaaaaachuuuuuuuuuu! Electrocute anyone who touches you without consent. If you're surprised to find a Pikachu wig in a video game costume idea, you shouldn't be because Pikachu is way more than a cartoon character now. It's larger than life character.
The Pokemon game got viral in the 2018's, pulling people out of their homes, making them experience the ultimate virtual reality thug life. They went into the absolute frenzy. The craze was real. If you ask why? Well, the sense of virtual reality around Pokemons was simply surreal.
But here's the rub. This Pikachu wig rules out all the virtual possibilities and makes you the "real-walking pokemon" among your homies. It isn't a joke, my friend! Cover yourself in the wig. Discover your hidden abilities. Send enemies in paralysis with your power and at last! Make those cute, innocent Pikachu faces.
#2 Poke Friends Wigs - Chikorita wig | HPO
Those thunder leaves and electric blasts are incomplete without Chikorita. You'd want to send electric leaves flying on your opponent in the event, especially to the bummers who keep hanging you for the party. I swear I DON'T MIND releasing electric blades on these tardy, behind-schedule friends.
By the way, any Pokemon that looks as cute as Pikachu or comes closer to him is Chikorita. I remember when I violated the signal to catch Chiko darling (I like to call him that way). Ummm, I had to pay hefty fines! Glad I didn't go for Charizard; the enforcement would have made me run through public shaming and sit-ups. :P
Anyway, pulling this video game character is a task in itself. But the good part is: it's a good task, and you should aim for it. Send those pure beams of energy in the event and electrize the evening. Anyone can pull this character, but if you're docile and friendly, this video game wig will suit you big time.
#3 Splatoon Yellow Inkling Girl Wig and Ears with Mask Set | Yellow Video Game Wigs | HPO
The quick, fast-attacking splatoons are lovely to have around in video games. Are you one of those who come back strong after the deadly troll? Congratulations. You have the holy blessings of these splatoons who respawn even when they have been splatted.
If you return the favor with wit, sarcasm, and a killing attitude, you need a splatoon yellow inkling girl wig and ears with a mask set. Wondering if you should be a yellow splatoon in the upcoming event? Well, if you run short of calcium and have lighter bones, you can pull this one very well. Prolly because splatoons are boneless. ;)
Also, the power to switch between humanoid and squid form was never this easy until our splatoon costume happened. Release ink and damage the opposite inklings with the outfit. Wear pride in being an immortal splatoon that doesn't die in-game or in-real. Cheers, the eternal lord.
#4 Mario costumes
Look! You're not getting your queen until you've put yourself inside the Mario costume. No video game costume can go without a Mario theme, for those who miss it are the greatest sinners.
But I'll make sure I'm not a sinner. So you need this costume to possess superhuman strength on any occasion. Destroy all the roadblocks. Make serious jumps in the air. Lift enormous objects and be the center of attraction.
Pretty much like the Pokemon costumes, the Mario costume is timeless. From the nerdy generations of the '90s to the Genz generation of the over-frivolous kids, the outfit gets noticed when you step through the door.
Looking to pull out a group-Mario theme in events? The Mario costume comes in various sizes and is suitable for any gender. So dress men, women, kids, infants, and boomers in the Mario themes costume and confuse the dragon. Easy deal?
#5 Ash Ketchum aka Satoshi costume
Pikachu can't cut to any list without Ash Ketchum. Two bodies, one soul. Pokemon! I choose you still sounds nostalgic. Ash truly happened to be one of the Pokemon show's brilliant minds and other manga series from Japan.
But the only video game where Ash Ketchum appeared was the Pokemon Puzzle League. Unfortunately, the game wasn't released in Japan. But what if Ash couldn't make it to any video game? You can still wear the costume and bring Ash to life.
In fact, Ash has been a cultural impact through the land of the Sun, and due to its recognizability and good reception, you will look extremely popular yet unique in the cosplay.
You can add more authenticity to your dressing with a mascot Pikachu hat. Cover your friends and teams in Misty, Brock, and professor Oak's cosplay and enjoy the mega Pokemon theme gathering.
#6 Men's PokeGo Trainer Uniform - Adult Halloween Costumes | HPO
The classic PokeGo trainers, especially Ash, have evolved drastically over the years through the show. This also includes their training uniform. But don't you worry. You will have all the choices under one roof. It doesn't matter whether you like the classic training uniform or the evolved cosplays; you should have the choices to make.
Adult Pokego training costumes again made it to the Pokemon Puzzle league, the ones released outside Japan. Should you need to defeat anyone in any department on any occasion, the pokeGo training uniform shall help you.
Ash defeated Gary, Team rocket, and Mewtwo in the league wearing the same costume. You can win the master trophy as Ash and Pikachu did by pinning down everyone who comes your way. What say?
#7 Lara croft costume
Easily one of the most iconic female characters of video games, Lara Croft, happens to slay the list simply by her presence. The super agile, athletic, blunt girl can outmaneuver pretty much any mercenary. Furthermore, with her thoughtful actions, she can disable pretty much any soldier who tries to be a hurdle for her mission.
For all the tough ladies looking to pull tough girl costumes, the Lara Croft video game character costume is the perfect fit for you. Please don't have any second thoughts on this. Even better if you don't rely on your luck to overpower the uninvited circumstances because Lara didn't depend on it either.
You'd love to get into the character if you are multi-linguist and can make fun of your lousy group, so and when you want. Additional stars to your character if you know how to put up a fight with those self-proclaimed "alpha-males."
If you really want to mimic her, get yourself a Tomb Raider costume, pair it with a pistol and sexy lace-up boots. And tadah! You're outright ready to shoot those mercenaries looking to trouble you through the journey of treasure hunting. For an even more authentic Lara look, add bow and arrow accessories and put proof of your power on the table.
#8 Luigi costume
Let's face it. Did you think I would let this cosplay list without Mario's fraternal twin brother— Luigi? Seldom do I miss on brothers. If you and your sibling— both wanted to wrap up in Mario costume— but only one of you can go for it, fret not! Luigi opens up an excellent option for you.
Often appearing as a sidekick to his older brother Mario, Luigi is a treat to watch. The video game character is younger yet taller than Mario, who occasionally rescues his elder brother.
If you think you're smarter than your Mario sibling, also braver, and have a sexier girlfriend— you probably need to dress up as Luigi. Because many believe Luigi was more elegant than Mario and could make more significant jumps than Mario. So? Why do you want to fight over Mario cosplay when Luigi gives you handsome brownie points over your brother? ;)
It doesn't matter if Luigi is the underdog compared to his superstar brother— what matters is his handsomeness and power to work around a vacuum. And yes, for all the mustachios, you don't have to worry about shaving out your mustache for cosplays. Luigi and Mario look best on the ones with the mustache.
#9 Sonic the hedgehog costumes
There are lots of mad scientists out there. Who knows, they're among you, in your Halloween/fancy parties or even in your house. But I believe the world doesn't need to be scared of them so long you drape yourself in the sonic hedgehog costume.
To answer all the Eggman's, you have to pull out the super speedy Sonic. No, you don't have to spill magical chants to do it. Let your skin hug the tight sonic hedgehog costume (yes, the one from the video game) and bring the character to life.
Remember. If you have enhanced durability, stunning acrobatic skills and reflexes, powerful core strength, high jumping capabilities, long-marathon stamina, and intense agility, no one can snatch this character from your hand.
Yeah, yeah! This demands a lot from you, but that's what these hedgehogs are all about. But even if you possess one of these qualities, you can still give it a try. Whether you like or hate them, their popularity and instant recognizability make them a fitting fit for your cosplay needs.
Don't forget to add red boots to the blue costume. The adult, the toddler, and the child costume variants give meaning to the group themes. And yes, if you have championed fist-fights in school, no one is sweeping this character away from you; you're already a hedgehog ;)
#10 Intergalactic Resistance Fighter Yeti - Cosplay Wig | HPO
It doesn't matter if you stand tall or short— your resistance defines the indomitable character. You'll be pleased to hear you can be the hero in your group regardless of your height with the intergalactic resistance fighter yeti cosplay wig.
The galactic history has seen your heroic, in and out, with your supportive nature which has peddled many out from the problems. You can pull the classic, friendly, and adorable snowman from the 90's video game SkiFree with this costume.
Blend your compassionate heart with a menacing figure and yeti costume and make every fall for your cuteness from the word go. To make the event more happening, exit all the heated arguments though you have all the powers in the world to fend off the bickering prick to another corner of the universe.
Choose from as many colors and deliver the message of peace and kindness despite being sturdy and mighty.
#11 Charizard costume
Charizard happens to be by far the favorite Pokemon for many, including the writer of this blog post (please don't judge me). Another massive cult following from the Pokemon universe.
The makers of the show say only a weak Charizard shows his real power. If you're hurt, broken, and emotionally drained— you can portray this video game character very nicely. Moreso, because broken people are influential people.
The massive yet cute dragon may look like a threat to the world, but it doesn't believe in showing off its power until it has stepped on a Charizard mega evolutions. Here's what you can do with a Charizard costume:
First, play fire-type moves when your health is not good, yet someone tries to get on your nerves on the thematic event. Second, you suddenly find your solar abilities when you're exposed to harsh sunlight. And third, you can use the costume wings to fly up to 4,600 feet and answer all your opponents with ease.
#12 Men's lackey minion creature costume
Minion rush, the video game from Despicable Me, was a wildfire, pretty much as its movie counterpart. Whether you're trying to get into the boots of the best movie or video game cosplays, the minion is a must inclusion. And there's no way I'm skipping its name from the list.
You should go for the lackey minion creature costume if you happen to have the ultimate level of sarcasm and wit within your circle. Make sure you're pulling their legs so hard they need prosthetics to make up the losses.
Like in the movie, the video game character is cautious towards the fellow minions and has extreme audacity to trample any length for their well-being. Having a similar personality trait is a brilliant add-on for pulling this costume.
If you can relate yourself to these cute sprout cut, hair-styled creatures, you need not think twice before owning it. It's easily recognizable and popular among everyone, yes even among the 'Gru' in your group, the super-villain who will try to destroy the world with his antics.
But people trust your power for your costume has built a strong repertoire in neutralizing all the weird acts laid out by Gru on your community. So, what are you waiting for? Wear it and get ready for the action-packed, fun mission.
#13 Peter Pan Costume With Tunic, Hat, and Pants - Halloween Costumes | HPO
Not the best of the video games, but undoubtedly one of the cult characters of all time, Peter Pan quickly makes it to this list. The free-spirited and mischievous man-child who never grows up, or rather who doesn't like to grow up, can be the favorite of many who share the same feeling.
If you want to steal his thunder, you're having Peter Pan costume with a tunic, hat, and pants. Period. Trust me! The comfort to not grow and spend time exploring Neverland's mythical island is surreal and a wonderful feeling. You'd never feel so great in anyone's costume and boots. ;)
The Peter Pan costume is a testimony for flying without wings, and if you want to enjoy the same adventure as him, there's little to no doubt in having the best pick for any occasion.
Battle those cocky pirates in the party, or get into the friendly wars and banters with Indians. One thing is sure: you will be stunned to realize such power at your disposal, the one that seemed in the video game.
