Forum Question for RG92 - Let's dress Darran up...

Hello all. I'm going to the RetroVision event in Oxford this weekend (hope to see some of you there!) and doing my usual little write up for the mag. It needs a forum poll to go with it but having covered lots of these events, we've run the usual sort of 'what do you most enjoy at a retro event', 'what games are best for multiplayer at an event' etc etc.

So I've thought outside the box. The RetroVision events have a cosplay element (ie. folks dressing up as videogame characters - it's big in Japan, trust me...) so here is your chance to tell us how you would most like to see our esteemed editor togged up. I'll allow 2 votes per forumite and hey, who knows, he might even dress up as the winner for the R3Play event in Blackpool in November (whatyersay boss?!! ;])

Oh and I haven't included Mario (he does this anyway most lunchtimes at work) nor Strider (he saves that for weekends).

Cheers all!

Paul @;]

PS. and please note I'm not a tourist - me and my dad shall be going all cosplay this weekend too...

Darran can barely pull off normal clothes so to put a costume on him is just cruel for those that have to look at him!

Chun Li and Pikmin for me, either would be funny.

Some very disturbing images created by the poll suggestions.. not sure anyone needs to see him dressed as chun-li, that would be a thousand childhood tommy tanks reduced to horrifying nightmares that will be brought back on the psychiatrist's couch in years to come.

If we are going for something that he could actually, in reality, go as then probably Duke Nukem as that could be amusing.. only if he does the voice and spouts Duke's catchphrases the entire time..

I voted NiGHTS, because I found that option to be startlingly original. Like myself, apparently, because I'm the only one who's gone for it so far.

Can you get Darren to dress up in a chin li costume and get him to attemp a spinning bird kick. Then can you post a massive picture of it in RG so I can have a jolly good laugh?

I think he should dress up as Princess Peach and do another Kinect dancing vid.....I'll happily supply a little wand and some fairy dust.

after reading this poll i thought to myself although I think it won't happen but hey lets try and see the verdict.

although the last thing I would want to do is cut the magazine up but how about having a collector issue with a couple of sheets of card which are all preprinted with a selection of dress up dolls your sister used to have 35 years ago from Twinkle comic i think thats what it was called.

similar to this but instead have Darren and other members of the magazine that you can cutout expanding on the portraits in the magazine but each card has a different retro gamining outfit.

I really don't want to see another guy dressed up as Chun-Li. There are more of them than you may think. Duke Nukem! Now that's a good costume!
