It's July and if that little Halloween countdown counter is accurate, we only have 101 days 'til Halloween.
And like a good Hallowen Addict I believe it's never too late to start planning that ultimate costume now.
And if you're female and tired of the slutty-witch-nun-sexy-princess-nurse-thing how about mixing it up with a Zoey from Left 4 Dead costume?
As someone who only recently jumped on the next gen platform Xbox 360, I'm indulging in the myriad of horror games that the platform has collected in its 3 year existence.
As a fan of the Dawn of the Dead remake (AND original... so calm down, purists) I love me some good action horror and the game that delivers is certainly the simple and well crafted Left 4 Dead.
As all four characters are based on simple, yet iconic, archetypes they all lend themselves to excellent and simple costumes. In fact, you'll get lots of kudos if you can get a full party of four (3 men and 1 woman) to show up together.
The most difficult part of Zoey is getting the red sweatshirt right, but thank goodness someone with some craft experience has already done the work for you.
For a cool $65 + shipping on Etsy you can get a pretty darn frame accurate rendition of Zoey's sweatshirt. Throw on a black ponytailed wig and grab a shotgun and/or some pistols and you're good to go.
Guys can dress up as any of the other dudes and then just kick in the door to the Halloween party of your choice. (C'mon, how cool would it be to have your girlfriend run up to the bar, grab a brown bottle of beer and yell "There's molotovs over here!" I just might marry that girl.)
Uh oh... IDEA!
LEFT 4 DEAD--- THE WEDDING!
