Halloween is fast approaching. You may have already carved a gamertastic pumpkin, but do you need something last minute for a gaming-themed costume? Decided to create your own but running out of time? The following are some amazing video game inspired creations perfect for any costume, whether it is an accessory or a major piece.
Minecraft Weapon Set
It can take time to create the perfect Minecraft weapon to accompany your costume. Not only can this set of sword and pickaxe be a cosplay prop, it can also be a fun toy for children to play with long after Halloween is over.
Harry Potter Wands
Who doesn't want to be a wizard? Slip on some robes and you are pretty much ready to go. But who will really know you are able to cast spells unless you have your wand?
Luckily, Etsy has these great replicas available for your next trip to Hogwarts.
Pikachu Ears Headband
Pikachu wouldn't be Pikachu without the ears. Rosy cheeks and yellow attire may make you look more like an overly warm Charlie Brown than the iconic Pokemon without them. So don't forget the ears!
Pokeball: Full Scale Replica
Have a Pokemon Trainer, gijinka, or other related cosplay? Looking to set it apart from every other costume in the neighborhood? A Pokeball is a must to help sell the look. A high quality Pokeball will really reel in the candy -- especially with post-Pokemon Go and pre-Sun & Moon hype going strong. It could even help you win you that costume contest. Whichever you value more.
Three Dogs' Gloves
Three Dog is an iconic figure from Fallout 3. He even makes an appearance in Fallout Shelter. Looking to copy his look but don't have the time to craft his gloves? The above item is perfect for you.
Joker Costume Onesie
Looking to dress up your baby but not sure where to go for a great costume? This Joker onesie is perfect to dress up your little bundle of joy while keeping them comfortable. Onesies also provide great opportunities to layer. Try layering a Batman outfit on top with a peek of the Joker underneath, representing Batman's transformation into his nemesis in Batman Arkham City.
Baby Sushi Costume
Loved the Lickitung sushi game from Pokemon Stadium? Dress your baby up as a piece of sushi and remember the good times you had.
*Caution: Babies are not meant to eat. Costume only. Watch out for spicy sushi.*
Monkeys are adorable. They are mischevious. They throw poop at you in Don't Starve. One of the main sources of poop in the Shipwrecked DLC, monkeys are one of the more annoying creatures in the game.
Whether your little creature is annoying, they will most certainly be adorable with this costume. Hopefully poop-throwing does not ensue while the veil is thin.
