Halloween is the best time of year. For one day, you can go out into the world in whatever cosplay outfit melts your butter without anyone calling you a giant dork.
Wear your fuzzy! Dress like a woman! Dress like an Japanese-influenced alien! Be your gamer fantasy. Even if you are only looking for a costume because you can’t go to a Halloween party without one, you could take advantage of this moment to express your inner nerd.
We found seven uber nerdy costumes to pick from. Have at it!
It’s a little obvious, maybe, but it’s a classic nerd go-to: The Stormtrooper. This one is easy to wear, but creates a realistic and unmistakable Storm Trooper. It’s just the mask helmet and a shirt, but it gets the job done—and it’s super affordable.
You could make something elaborate based on your favorite game character or something from a meme or that obscure webisode series no one but you can stand… but why bother? That sort of elitism is bordering on hipster anyway. And beside, there’s this shirt. It’s easy, inexpensive, and you can wear it every year.
That’s a good investment, if you ask us.
Error 404 Costume Not Found
You know what would be funny? A whole pack of these running down the street, grabbing up candy, tossing back beers, and generally acting like uncivilized, rowdy T-Rexes.
We don’t know how those little hands work when you are wearing them. But we would love to find out!
This Merry Marauder from Fortnite is surprisingly scary for a costume (or skin if you want to stay in game) that is based on Christmas.
Bring the costumes out of the game and into Halloween and see what happens, right? You will certainly find out who else in your world plays Fortnite. (Probably everyone.)
This green Zentai suit, with Alien eyes, makes an awesome costume. Stretchy and comfortable enough to dance in, it covers your entire body in Alien green. But those black eyes really make you look like an alien.
These come in lots of colors, but alien green is our pick for Halloween.
Ready to do shirtless Mario? (How did that get to be a thing again?) It’s easy and, if you live in a warm climate, very comfortable.
Take off your shirt. Wear a red swimsuit. And put on this Mario hat and mustache.
There! You are an internet meme!
The world of fuzzy cosplay is a boon to the availability of comfy Halloween costumes. Do you want to be a husky? A rabbit? A fox? It’s right here. All you have to do is identify your patronus, buy a fuzzy onesie that looks like it, and wear it.
These are essentially pajamas! So you will be warm, comfortable, and adorable whatever animal you are.
