10 Nerdiest Video Game Halloween Costumes

That Big Daddy costume must have taken months to create. Samus Aran - MetroidYou may or may not have known this, depending how much time you wasted in your youth playing video games, but Samus from Metroid was indeed a girl. Pacman - PacmanMaking yourself into a big eating machine is one thing (see Ms Pacman), but check out this dudes costume. I am convinced this guy's mom worked on the set of Star Ship Troopers back in 1997 and stole the chest pieces from the movie. I may be a bit biased though as this game has robbed me of many hours of my life.3. Link - The Legend of ZeldaThe Link costume is on this list more for pure nerdliness than costume ingenuity. Wearing it out in public takes a set of cohones only possessed by those who lack the ability to socially function in society on a daily basis.8. If that arcade cabinet is still functional that guy wins the costume of the millenniu m.5. This guy not only gets huge props for building that tank of a costume, he also gets points for sustaining what could be nothing less than an extremely uncomfortable evening. Little Sister, Big Daddy - BioShockWhile Samus Aran was a VERY close second, the Big Daddy and Little Sister costume absolutely eclipses everything south of #2 in this list. I really only included it because I absolutely love seeing women wear this costume. Orc - World of WarcraftWorld of Warcraft probably takes the cake for the most lives ruined per capita. I'm sure you do too, so we'll just leave the eye candy here at #10.9. If you want to survive the entire night without getting called a nerd but are still desperate to show your true love for video games, whip up a simple Mario or Luigi costume.6. Gordon - Half LifeWhile this guy's Gordon costume consists of a lot of cardboard covered in different colors of tape, i have to admit it was very well done. The girl can have a few points too, but honestly, this costume is number one thanks to the man in the tin can.. You go girl!2. I wonder if he even speaks English any more.4. Pichachu, Ash - PokemonIs Pokemon even popular anymore? Regardless creating that Pichachu costume had to have taken some serious sewing time; either that or they bought Pokemon costumes back in 1999 when Pokemon was a bigger commodity than a Britney Spears sex tape.7. Pacman, Ms. He actually built himself into a Pac Man arcade machine. There are actually support groups for people who spend all their waking time playing this game. There is something strangely attractive about a hot girl wearing a video game costume. Anybody with a pair of tights, a blonde wig, some boot from Value Village and some left over felt from a third grade craft party can make this costume in a matter of hours. Check out the genius that went into these 10 or so Halloween costumes.10. Mario, Luigi and Peach - Super Mario BrothersI doubt there are any more recognizable characters in the video game world outside of Mario and as a result it seems like this would most likely be the least nerdy video game costume. Could you imagine being so addicted to a video game that http://www.getyourmemphisdreamhome.com/horse-farms-for-sale/Hickory-Withe-TN-Small-Horse-Farms-For-Sale/33/high-grade-help-and-top-testimonials.html - Bank Owned Foreclosure Hickory Withe TN - you opt to spend hours leveling up your character over possibly going on a date with a member of the opposite sex? Clearly this Orc has not been outside of his house in years aside from the time it took him to go pickup the supplies to build his costume. I'm imagining being inside that ball of metal can not only be heavy, but the humidity must be through the roof. Master Chief - Halo (I originally put Half-Life, but I was half asleep)There is no way any true nerd would have the abilities to build all the intricate pieces that went into this costume. I have no idea where he stole the helmet or the leg pieces though. Even the guys physical attributes look like Gordon from Half Life. Halloween 2008 is just around the corner, and nothing brings the video game geeks out of the wood work quite like Halloween.You really have to hand it to the true video game nerds; they might not do much besides play video games, but one thing is certain, some of them can make a damn nice Halloween costume. That takes some skill. I can't put my finger on it, but I would definitely put my finger on this smoking hot Samus costume.1. Lara Croft - Tomb RaiderThis one really isn't that amazing because you can just pick up some standard police costume gear from any army surplus store
