Trick or Treat: It's Yahtzee!

image

Nothing says "trick or treat, you smarmy bastard" like this awesome Halloween costume based on everyone's favorite displaced British vulgarian game critic.

Okay, so this isn't exactly the real world Yahtzee Croshaw we all know and love from Zero Punctuation. It's still awfully impressive, especially when you consider that there's not much going on here beyond some cardboard, a black magic marker, a few straps and a disconcertingly-tight yellow one-piece.

Reddit user R.J. Cantrell, the man behind the costume, certainly created the costume in the proper spirit of Zero Punctuation, if not Halloween, writing, "I only made this costume in order to snidely critique everyone else's." We can only hope he spends the evening yelling at people with a dismissive English accent.

It's almost time, at least in this part of the world, for the Halloween haunting to begin. What are you dressing up as this year? Upload some pics and show us what you've got!

I love it.

The eyes seem a bit off.

...I've been watching too much ZP.

Ok I guess I better stop that before im banned, wait.
*looks at last line*

IWANTTHESKILLSI- *Slap* No bad paranoid!

it ins't necessarily the skills, anyone with a pair of scissors, cardboard, and some string could of made this.

but the most difficult part I think was trying to find a ZP Yellow one piece.

I mean.....really.....

Other than the eyes looking like he was recently lobotomized, the costume actually looks really good. Also, how does he see out of that thing?

what a genius

Because nothing is more scarier than a pissed-off, cynical critic. (at least to game developers and fanboys)

How's he gonna have a drink?
More importantly how's he gonna eat his candy?!

He wont.

Every time someone offers him a drink or gives him some candy, hes going to dismiss it and talk about how shit said drink or candy is.

"Tsk! Budweiser is like making love in a canoe. That is to say, it's fucking near water!"

Not angry enough. It should have a burning poker sodomizing a copy of Too Human.

Cool. Someone really took the time to make that? But I have to say, it is more original then just another witch/pirate/ghost or other generic halloween costume.

Oh man, I did laugh pretty hard. Did you make that one up just now or is it well known in the US?

He needs some kids dressed as imps to complete the ascetic.

Well, I'm British. I'm not sure what inspired the remark, but I have tried USA Budweiser and it's blegh. On the other hand I also tried some real Czech beer. Talk about a taste-gasm.

That is brilliant! Ah that gave me a good laugh. Cheers mate! Sigh... I wish Halloween would be more popular here in the Netherlands...

Wow, that's great, I'd love to see that rather then the skimpily dressed drunk college coeds running around here.

Oh no!
The god of critics has been unleashed upon us!
Quick, he demands to be given an sacrifice of 666 living fanboys!
Do it before he gets mad and destroy everything you love!

Now he needs someone dressed as an imp to go with it and it will be perfect.

This is awesome!

I've seen some very good costumes this year, but this one comes close to taking the cake in the originality department!

bleachigo10:

If he has kids....PERFECT.

With this costume, you have the divine right to mock every store bought costume. Because even though its cheep as shit to make, is fucking original and hand made! May you mock costumes like Yahtzee does to games.

newwiseman:

Well how the fuck do you think me and some kids in my grade are dressing up?

In relation with the latest Loaded Ready Run video, if he doesn't have a kid to be the imp then he just need one of his mate to crouch down as the imp instead.

Who else was hoping this was an Escapist run contest that had Yahtzee coming to your house, ringing the doorbell, and then punching you in the stomach?

The costume is quite well done..this guy will make a perfect choice for the sacrifices.

Your avatar goes well with that comment.

A pretty damn sweet costume, wouldn't mind wearing that on halloween... if there was halloween in Iceland. ._.

*cracks up!*

That's...That's pretty damn funny! I like!

I was gonna go for an Armored Kantus, but i came up with this idea last week. need way more time to pull that one off.

Yahtzee should use this as a stand in for himself in a episode:P

If Halloween wasn't over in 45 minutes over here I'd totally go as that. That's awesome! Maybe next year...

Oog, and I think it's wierd to see people as Homestar Runner characters for Halloween...

Man now you just need to imitate his trademark way of speaking the entire night or until you pass out. Whichever comes first. It will definetly be the passing out.
