Looking for ideas for diy video game character costumes? Check out what I found!

I’ve compiled some of the cutest gamer costume ideas I could find for this Halloween. My little gamer is always asking me to make him a costume from his latest obsession so I thought you guys might need a little help with this, as well. I hope you find something your kids will love!

  1. The Peashooter, Plants vs. Zombies

    This costume is near and dear because I’m currently trying to recreate it! The green clothing is just regular items you can reuse so the only real expense, both creatively and financially, is the head piece and leaves. Check out the post here!

2. Minecraft – a family of fun!

This looks really easy to pull off and so cute when the whole family dresses up. Start saving those extra boxes and buy some paints. I can’t wait to see these 8bit cutes wandering around on Halloween.

3. Little Big Planet

This game is so fun for kids of all ages. Its not violent and really nurtures some problem solving skills. Well done Jessica R!

4. Pacman – an oldie but a goodie

This is perfect for a group! Grab your poster board and cut out the ghost or pacman of your choice. All you need is string to hold it over your shoulders and you are all set. Great idea!

Do you sew? This one might be a good option for you! To save time, try using a blue hoodie and just sew on your hedgehog spikes and white fury belly. See more here.


This is it!

This is it. I’m really doing it. I’m not going to overthink it. I am just going to blog.

If you have ever suffered with the crippling affects of overthinking everything, then you are very familiar with what I call Perpetual Poppycock Syndrome, or PPS for short.

I have been afflicted with PPS for as long as I can remember. I want to stop this crazy habit and see what life is like to just live. There has to be a better way.

Going forward, I will discuss and document different aspects of life that I experience PPS. Finance, relationships, fitness, etc. Its all up for discussion.

The end result will hopefully be a more enlightened but relaxed way of life. I hope you enjoy the journey!
