Video Game Cosplay Halloween Costume Ideas
Buzz, Love

Are you into old-school video games and comics? We've got you covered.

You don't have to be into cosplay or be a gamer to wear one of these creative video game inspired Halloween costumes.

Maybe you were invited to a party with a video game theme, and have no idea what to wear.

I get it, not EVERYONE is into video games. (I myself, am not.) BUT, there's no doubt that there are some characters out there that can definitely be turned into a stellar Halloween costume.

Better yet, if your boo is a little hesitant to dress up for Halloween as a video game character, suggesting the two of you go as a video game couple might make him more eager to participate. You don't have to be knowledgeable about the game perse, you just have to know how to dress up as your character.

And there are SO many video game personalities you can become inspired by (thanks to today's graphics and designers).

Even just by looking at what some of them wear, you know you'll be able to come up with a great costume (and sometimes even a sexy one, depending on who you choose). You can even save the outfit for a cosplay event down the road. 

For most of these characters, a DIY costume might be the best way to go if you want to showcase the same creativity and detail used in their actual appearance. If this still doesn't sound like an appealing approach to your costume, I suggest you give it a try anyway!

Not only will your boyfriend (or girlfriend) be happy that s/he gets to geek out, but you'll both have an opportunity to experience Halloween in a new way. Even if you're not into video games, you'll probably recognize a lot of these!

If this is sounding more interesting to you, here are 20 video game characters that can be turned into an epic Halloween costume:

If you have a close friend of the opposite gender, then going as this pair would be perfect. Link and Zelda are rarely shown as a romantic couple. Together, this makes a great gamer couple costume that's a lot of fun to wear.

If you don't want to spend too much time and money creating your gamer couple Halloween costume, then this is a great idea. People will enjoy the nostalgia. You'll love the simplicity.

Not everyone is familiar with Assassins Creed, I get it. However, if you're a nose-in-the-books type of gal, then Sofia would be perfect for you.

Her husband, Ezio, is a dedicated and brave individual. If that suits your man, then consider this pair as your gamer couple Halloween costume!


 

Ryu and Ken

Yes, this isn't a male/female pair. Bromances are still a thing, right? Or maybe you have a fab boyfriend of your own that you need a perfect couples costume for. 

Based off the game Street Fighter, Ryu and Ken are best friends that are constantly competing with each other. You can take your video game action into real live as a couple and show off your gamer couple skills.

If you're in a committed, loving relationship, then Tidua and Yuna from Final Fantasy 10 might be your go-to costume. Tidus and Yuna both have the same goal: to destroy Sin.

Working together to fight the same enemy can really make two people close. Perfect for gamers who also love to dress up for Halloween.


 

Master Chief and Cortana

Friends or lovers? If that's you and your... whoever, then why not talk about the status of your relationship while dressing up as Master Chief and Cortana from Halo?

Their relationship is that weird in-between kind of love. They think of each other as family, but they also have some romantic feelings for each other. Perfect for gamers during Halloween or take it up a notch later and go to a video game cosplay event. 


 

Wreck-it-Ralph and Vanellope

Not exactly a romantic gamer couple, but these two definitely have a love/hate relationship. Vanellope is a wanna-be racer who gets picked on for being a glitch in the game system. Ralph, who at first finds Vanellope extremely annoying, helps her build the perfect car and shows her how to stand up to all the other mean racers.

They have more of a brother/sister relationship.

Cloud and Aerith

This would be a perfect costume idea if you were being set up with a blind date on Halloween. In Final Fantasy VII, Cloud is experiencing a psychotic break during the time he knows Aerith. He never really gets to be his true self around her, and he never gets the chance to because Aerith eventually dies.

So it sort of resembles being on a blind date, because Cloud and Aerith never really knew each other either.


 

The Prince and Farah

The Prince really is a prince. He's spoiled, charming, and sarcastic. If you're a couple that possesses a lot of confidence, then this couple from the Prince of Persia might make the perfect costume pair for you and your prince.

This couple is a good example of the nerdy boy being afraid to ask out the girl he has a crush on or when you flirt back and forth but no one actually takes the initiative of planning a date.
