It’s officially October, which means it’s officially time to start planning the perfect Halloween costume. Presenting Cloak Yourself, Tek Lado’s guide to costumes for the geek-minded.
Remember Halloween back in the day? After a chilly evening knocking on doors, consuming an entire pumpkin’s head-full of sugary goodness, you crashed and moms everywhere tucked in tiny ninjas, princesses and He-Men.
We’re bringing you a geek sampling of costumes you can live in. A hoodie, some PJ’s, anything cozy enough to wear for 7-10 hours of screen time, something you won’t mind passing out in.
Let’s begin with some cozy character hoodies. These costumes require minimum effort, transforming you in a single added layer of clothing. Plus, you can show your fandom by wearing them throughout the year.
If that’s not cozy enough, try some PJ’s. When Halloween’s over, you can wear them all day every day, as long as you never leave the house.
Luckily, Japan’s love of kigurumi has trickled over to the US bringing us cozy PJ’s in so many animal forms. Get creative and enjoy a cuddly Halloween dressed as a Frogger, Starfox, a Red Panda Monk, Hello Kitty, or a Dancing Hamster.
