Over the years, I have seen cosplay for video games ranging from Super Mario Bros to Diablo III but in all of this time, I can’t recall having ever come across any Sonic the Hedgehog cosplay.  Of course I may have and I have just forgot about it because my memory sucks (after nearly 3000 posts on my Global Geek News site, 400 here and countless others on other sites over the past 12 years that I have written, I can’t remember everything I have posted anymore).  So, when I came across this sexy Sonic the Hedgehog cosplay, I knew I had to share it because I’m sure I’m not the only one seeing some Sonic cosplay for the first time.

This awesome and sexy Sonic the Hedgehog cosplay is being sported by cosplayer Manzinat0r and it was photographed by Greg De Stefano.

As if the cosplay wasn’t enough, the orange and brown squares, grass and rings make these pictures full of Sonic awesomeness.  This is definitely a fantastic tribute to one of my favorite video games growing up!

I would also like to go on record in saying that there is nothing hotter than a woman with blue hair because we really need more women to sport blue hair.  I put it right up there with women with pointy Vulcan/elf type ears (don’t judge me).  Anyway…

Video games have been a huge part of my life (I got my first console when I turned 2) and there is a special place in my heart for all of the old school 8-bit video games I loved as a kid.  I still enjoy going back and playing those over 20 years later and some such as Super Mario Bros and Donkey Kong Jr are games I still play on a daily basis.

Well, if you are also a fan of classic 8-bit video games and are feeling a bit nostalgic, I have found a shirt you are going to love!

The awesome geeks over at BustedTees are selling this 8-Bit Bosses shirt for just $12 for the next 5 days.  That is 40% off the normal $20 price!

The 8-bit bosses shirt features bosses from those retro classics like Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros and many others.  If you were a fan of video games back in the NES days, you will find something to love about this shirt!

One of my favorite arcade games as a kid that took many of my quarters was Pac-Man.  Even to this day, I still play an occasional game of it on my iPad or iPod Touch when I am bored.  For as simple as the game is, I have always found it to be quite the challenge and a lot of fun.  Just writing this really makes me miss the days of quarter operated arcade games.

Speaking of Pac-Man, the awesome folks over at 80sTees are selling this awesome first level Pac-Man shirt for $20.  If you are a Pac-Man fan, then you need this shirt!

From my personal experience, I can say that shirts like this featuring much loved video games are fantastic conversation starters with strangers.  It seems like whenever I go out in public, somebody is always commenting on whatever geeky shirt, hat or dog tags I am wearing that day.  If you are looking for a great way to meet new people, wearing a shirt like this is the perfect way to do it!

Hoodies have never really been my thing for some reason (I’ve just never been a fan), but I would love to have this awesome Pac-Man hoodie!  This is perhaps the only hoodie I have ever really wanted and I am extremely tempted to buy it!

The geektastic folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this awesome Pac-Man hoodie for $49.99.  That feels a tad high for me but I have never shopped for hoodie before so that could be a great price and I just don’t know it.  Either way, I would still pay that price just to have an awesome Pac-Man hoodie!

If you are looking for a great conversation starter for talking with gamers, this is the perfect way to do it!  I find there is no easier way to start a conversation with somebody geeky than by wearing something that shows you are a geek.

Like many children of the 80s, I spent a considerable amount of time in the video arcade playing games like Galaga.  Well, for those that have also spent mountains of quarters playing Galaga in years gone by, this shirt will be right up your alley!

The awesome folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this Galaga Fighter Elite t-shirt for $18.99-$19.99 depending on the size you want.  Whether it is you who loves to play Galaga or somebody you know, this would be the perfect shirt to wear to advertise all of your bug blasting experience!

On a slightly unrelated topic, I didn’t realize that Galaga was 6 years older than I am!

Although I don’t play Tetris very much these days, as a kid, I was absolutely obsessed with Tetris on my Game Boy.  Whenever I left the house, my Game Boy would be in my hands and I would most likely be playing Tetris.  I got to be pretty good at it too and would never gave a game below 200 lines and even some above 300 (it becomes about impossible at that point).  Well, considering my love for the game, if I was a skirt wearing kind of guy (which I’m not), I would definitely want this awesome Tetris skirt!

For the ladies (or cross dressing men) out there that have a love for Tetris, Etsy seller GoChaseRabbits is selling this awesome Tetris skirt for $54.99.  If you are looking to catch the eye of that cute gamer you are interested in, this is certain to get their attention!

Maybe its just me, but it seems like you don’t see too many women in skirts these days as most seem to be wearing jeans.  Being the butt guy that I am, I would say I certainly prefer a woman in jeans although if they wore this awesome Pac-Man and Ghost skirt, I wouldn’t be complaining.

Etsy seller GoChaseRabbits is the person selling this awesome Pac-Man and Ghost skirt for $54.99.  For those interested, these are made to order and made out of 100% cotton and 100% awesomeness.

I absolutely love it when girls proudly show off their gamer side.  Whether its something as simple as Mario earrings or full on cosplay, I love when women aren’t afraid to let the world know that they love video games.  Perhaps the best way to do that without going all out in amazing cosplay would be with this amazing NES controller style shirt from Etsy seller morosemelonhead.  For the NES loving girls out there, this awesome NES controller shirt can be yours for just $49.99!  However, beware of guys that may run up to you in hopes of doing some button mashing.

With as much attention that is paid to the idea of a little black dress on women, I would much rather give my attention to the little Pac-Man dress.  The awesomeness of this retro gaming dress has me speechless.  If you are a girl gamer looking to attract the attention of a guy gamer, this is the dress you should be wearing to accomplish that task.  On second thought, it probably doesn’t matter what you are wearing, you will still probably have our attention.  Our thoughts really aren’t that complex but a sexy Pac-Man dress certainly won’t hurt your chances with us.

I’ve seen some cool gamer bras in the past but this Pac-Man one is perhaps my favorite.  Apparently this awesome glow in the dark Pac-Man bra is owned by Reddit user datcallipygous.  There was no mention in the Reddit post about where you can buy this but with a quick Google search, I was able to find that you can buy this awesome glow in the dark Pac-Man bra for $29.99 from Etsy seller RainbowKidShop.  If anybody decides to order this for themselves (or perhaps a significant other), let us know in the comments and pictures as always welcome!
