Zorro

Brought to life on the screen by the likes of Antonio Banderas and Tyrone Powers, Johnston McCulley’s fictional masked hero has enchanted readers and moviegoers alike for over one hundred years. Zorro (born Don Alejandro de la Vega) is a skilled acrobat and swordsman. You’ll know only after the fact that he saved the day when you find the villains’ bodies sliced with three cuts, forming the letter Z — the mark of Zorro.

Nidhogg

Nidhogg is a competitive side-scrolling two-player fighting video game by Mark “Messhof” Essen. Players duel with swords in a pixelated environment. It’s popular for tournaments due to the simple to play/hard to master gameplay as well as the ceaselessly fast pace. In it, players are colored silhouettes who fight who engage in fencing with one another. This costume is ideal for a group of at least two. Be sure to work on your cartwheels!
