How Much The Outfits Of Your Favourite Characters Costs

Video game characters have it easy: they never have to change clothes. Whether they’re saving the world or just catching Pokemon, our heroes — Master Chief, Link, Mario, Samus Aran — are always wearing the same damn thing. But their outfits aren’t always cheap. Master Chief’s get up can cost over a 100 million dollars. Even Link’s elf get up rings up over a thousand bucks. Not everybody can just wear a tie and eat bananas like Donkey Kong.

Here’s a totally silly exercise from Sunglass Warehouse that estimates the cost of a video game character’s outfit. They cleverly try to find real world replacements for things like Navi for Link (a drone) and use real projects like the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) for Master Chief to somewhat base it in our economics.

All I know is that I’m pretty sure I can do a better job with $US189 than the sweatpants wearing guy of Grand Theft Auto.

AU Editor’s note: All of the costs quoted are in US dollars; use this for quick conversions.
