Every year the list of nerdy costumes seen prowling the streets grows–sort of like the fandoms themselves. Thanks to reboots and remakes from various studios and streaming services, the variety of Halloween cosplay costumes has exploded. We now have more options than we could ever dream of. But finding them? Sheesh. That’s a bit of a Nightmare on Elm Street if you know what I mean.

But lucky for you, lazy bones, we’ve scoured the internet looking for something to please you, your budget, and your favorite fandom. Because even if COVID-19 has discouraged us from gathering with our usual gaming party, there’s no reason we still can’t get in the spirit for ourselves.
