It’s almost time people! Halloween is practically upon us, and you need to hurry up picking out a costume! What’s that? You have no costume ideas? Seriously?! Well, lucky for you, we here at MTV Geek! are stepping in to save the day by hooking you up with some awesome suggestions for this October 31st!
Behold in unspeakable awe, and/or point while laughing snarkily, at our Top Ten Geek-ily Awesome Halloween Costumes!
To the lovers of spandex, Charlie Kelly, & Milksteak:
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is quickly becoming the most outrageous comedy series on TV, and now that all of your unhip friends are catching it in syndication, there’s no better time to squeeze into this getup. Its listed as having “limited visibility” and it might show a little of your junk, but who cares?! Its not like people can see your face, right?
You can pick up Charlie’s alter-ego at: 80’s Tees.com http://www.80stees.com
9. Kermit the Frog
For those of you wanting to show a little class with a pinch of style:
The saying goes: ”There’s no-one as sexy as Kermit the Frog.” So, this is your chance to test that age old statement… that we just made up. The costume features everything you see, including the webbed shoe covers. Webbed shoe covers!
You can purchase this slick piece of Muppet libido (if you can handle it) at: Costume Kingdom http://www.costumekingdom.com
8. Infant Incredible Hulk
Any of you guys super-intelligent infants that surf the internet? Oh well, how about you have a baby, know someone with a baby, or have ever seen a baby? Yep, this next one is for you:
Cute, comic-accurate, and oddly disturbing. Those are the things to look for when dressing up your baby for All Hallows Eve, and this costume’s got all that in spades! Having your kid gussied up like an irradiated force of nature is really the reason for the season.
You can pick this pile of awesome up at: Halloween Express http://halloweenexpress.com
7. Princess Leia
If your into classic sci-fi, looking like every fanboy’s first crush, or if your Dad is a genocidal half-cyborg, then you’ll love this:
Simply a dress, belt, and wig can make you look the part of Princess Leia. Of course, acting like the surly bad-ass that Carrie Fisher portrayed is entirely up to you. No, actually we take that back. If you were this, you MUST be strong-willed and knock down the advances of any roguish, nerfherding smugglers…and their whiny blonde-headed friends.
To order this royal garb, simply go to: Halloween Costumes.com http://halloweencostumes.com
A costume that will fulfill a lot of your Peter Venkman-y childhood fantasies…well, the one’s where you were fighting ghosts, anyway:
That’s right folks! You too can now run around in libraries and bust ghosts with your inflatable proton pack! Inflatable?! Yeah, but what’d you expect? There’s just no way you’re gonna own a heavy, nuclear-powered pack for the price of this costume. You’ve just gotta be a tad more realistic in this economy, pal.
If you’re willing to accept that an officially licensed Ghostbusters jumpsuit is it’s own reward, then hop on over here and plunk down some cash: Fright Catalog http://www.frightcatalog.com
To all of you that think being a vigilante would be great, regardless of the massive beatings, then you’re in luck:
Dave Lizewski threw this garb together and proceeded to get beaten to a pulp, while amazingly still winning the day. Surely you can do a better job than that! Of course, this costume doesn’t come with batons, so you might wanna keep that in mind.
Still, we recommend throwing caution to the wind and buying this costume over at Spirit Halloween http://www.spirithalloween.com
4. Avatar’s Jake Sully & Neytiri
A couple’s costume set, straight from a gazillion-dollar-earning movie:
Nothing shows your commitment like dressing up together as blue-skinned, cat-like, primitive warriors. Oh, and sorry guys, but your female companion is gonna be the center of attention in this thing (don't remember Neytiri wearing stilettos though). Luckily, Jake Sully carries a spear…a sharp one.
You two can pick these up at Rubies.com http://www.rubies.com
3. Jean Grey
Now here is a costume that will blow your mind…in a telekinetic kinda way:
The X-Men’s resident red-headed psychic has now been immortalized with this sweet costume. It benefits by being visually striking enough that it’ll look great, while being unknown enough to show your true nerd-cred. Any woman’s natural ability to control men will be upped ten-fold while wearing this shiny mutant apparel. However, we can’t guarantee constant resurrections after destroying alien worlds. You’re just gonna have to run that risk.
You can order this Jean Grey uniform at 80’s Tees http://www.80stees.com
2. COBRA Commander
To all you would-be world conquerors out there:
Everyone can agree that the movie-version of COBRA Commander left something to be desired; but, in all fairness, its only because we all knew just how wicked a simple blue rag could be! Just cut a couple of eyeholes outta that baby and you’ve got yourself an evil leader! Now you too can run a criminal organization while your lackeys stab you in the back at every possible turn…and steal your candy.
You can acquire this costume exclusively at 80’s Tees.com http://www.80stees.com
And now, for the guy who wants to dress up just like a million other people; but, look better than ALL of them:
This piece of latex godliness is the ultimate Batman Collector Edition Costume from The Dark Knight film. Can it stop bullets, or let you glide through the air? Probably not. We don’t know, but this thing is unbelievably awesome. Sure it costs several hundred-dollars, but that’s still a lot less than Bruce Wayne funneled into his secret R&D department. Sneaky, sneaky, Bruce. Anyway, if you want to go all out for Halloween, then this is the top of the line!
You can order gravel-voiced coolness at: Party City http://www.partycity.com
Happy Halloween, Geeks!
