Games

Deadpool

In the Marvel Universe, Deadpool (aka Wade Wilson) is a mentally unstable mercenary. He’s hugely popular with comic fans as the merc with a mouth, frequently breaking the fourth wall. In the Wolverine movie, Ryan Reynolds also portrayed something that kind of resembled Deadpool, I guess…?

Lara Croft Reborn

In this 2013 reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, Lara Croft is a young and ambitious archaeologist on a quest to find the lost kingdom of Yamatai. She’s added new skills to her repertoire, including stealthing, ziplining, and shooting a bow and arrows. She’s also looking more like a grungy survivalist than ever before.

Travis Touchdown

In the video game No More Heroes, Travis Touchdown is a 20-something-year-old otaku, who spends his days collecting wrestling masks and watching anime. When he runs out of money to buy video games, he takes a job as a hitman.

Payday 2

Payday 2 is a first-person shooter game where you team up with other players to coordinate bank heists. To get one of these masks, you’ll need to find a collector’s edition of the game. Just don’t get any ideas about robbing someone for one.

Minecraft Steve

In Minecraft, the player Steve might not be pretty, but he gets the job done. He spends many hours roaming the sandbox environment, mining resources, building shelters, and surviving mobs. Don’t look now, Steve, but you’ve got some creepers creeping.

Cammy

In the Street Fighter series, Cammy is an assassin who turns on M. Bison to become an MI6 secret agent. Cammy’s gloves and boots are well suited for combat. Her leotard and braided pigtails? Not so much.

Cole MacGrath from inFAMOUS 2

In inFAMOUS 2, Cole MacGrath is granted the electric-based super power, which has the unfortunate side effect of siphoning energy from other humans. He’ll soon have to make a tough decision between saving thousands of Conduits like himself, or sacrificing them to save millions of people who have come to despise him.

Ezio from Assassin’s Creed II

In Assassin’s Creed II, Desmond uses an improved version of the Animus to view Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a nobleman from the late 15th century in Florence. Ezio witnesses the execution of his father and brothers by order of a corrupt official named Borgia and sets out for revenge against him and the Templars.

Sarah from The Last of Us

In The Last of Us, 12-year-old Sarah wakes up in the middle of the night just in time to see her dad Joel shoot a neighbor that breaks through their door. He tells her that they have to leave the house right away. He doesn’t even give Sarah enough time to put on her shoes.

Tess from The Last of Us

In The Last of Us, Tess works with Joel to make a living as smugglers. They’re partners, and maybe a bit more. For this costume, you’ll have to cut the sleeves and distress the jeans yourself — but hopefully not by running from zombies.
