Halloween or Cosplay?

It's the best night of the year for cramming ourselves full of sweet candy, watching horror flicks until you can't sleep soundly, and showing off our laboriously-made (or readily-purchased) costumes -- Halloween! SlobsofGaming is celebrating this day with a special whopper of a photo blog, featuring some of our ultimate, mega-favorite gamer costumes from all around the Internet! Have a great holiday, and for gosh sakes, play some video games before you submit to your yearly sugar-induced comas!

31: Megaman

It's definitely homemade, but this blue bomberette is definitely packing!

30: Phoenix Wright

A simple costume, but it's all about the attitude.

29: Laughing Octopus & Crying Wolf (Metal Gear Solid 4)

Even without the other Beauties, the crowd clearly fears these MGS4 bosses.

Great armor, but the cigarette really puts this costume together.

22: General Beatrice (FFIX)

The overpowered General from FFIX speaks softly and carries a big-ass sword.

Wow -- that has GOT to be uncomfortable.

Forget fireballs, it's all about the hair.

She's the REAL star of Marvel vs. Capcom 2, no buts about it.

16: Link (The Legend of Zelda)

Huh, he definitely looks more manly than all the other Links.

15: E. Honda (Street Fighter)

I feel bad for putting her so close to E. Honda...

13: Eva (Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater)

Suddenly, I find myself wishing I was CalorieMate.

Looks like Snake caught Samus after all.
