Are you struggling to pick a fancy dress out fit for the SQLBits 2022 costume party? Look no further—we have some great ideas! 

Two-person Icon Costume: Do you like Mario and Luigi? It’s perfect for you and a friend. As instantly recognisable icons you can smash through boxes, and shout Yipee! Yahoooo! at people as you pass by in pretend Karts. 
 
Masquerading Mayhem: Are you known for your mischievous nature and the havoc you bring to the scene? Then yhy not go as the bad guy? Throw a few banana peels as you race to the top in this fancy dress outfit idea! You could even take it a step further and go as the ultimate antagonist: Bowser! Get your Spikey shell on! 
 
Want to Dress Up with a Tie? Banana slamma! You could come looking as neat and chipper as Donkey Kong in a brown suit and red tie. 
 
Understanding the Assignment:  Are you literal-minded to a fault? Then you’re more than welcome here! Why not come as an arcade machine yourself? You can go as low or high tech as you like with either a box that’s rigged with lights or a black outfit with buttons mimicking controls and a fake screen.  
 
Better Together: Are you attending with a group of friends? Why not come as the one and only, true king of arcade gaming: Pac Man! As you rush around the halls being stalked by Inky, Pinky, Blinky and Clyde, you can keep your friends close—just don’t let them catch you!  
 
Feeling Feisty? Look, we can’t stop you from dressing as a character from Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter, but all we ask is that you don’t let any 1 v. 1 bouts get too out of hand.  

 
A Deep Cut: If you’re in a bit of a rush, the characters from B.C. Story is perfect as you don’t even have to brush your hair to get into character! Roll out of bed and straight to SQLBits as the perfect caveman. Just be mindful of the projected temperatures! 
 
Fitting In: If you have zero fear of mingling, then why not be a Tetris block? We’d be shocked if you didn’t find a group of other blocks to hang out with.   
 
 Hone Your Horror: If you’ve ever played the Five Nights at Freddy’s game series, you’ll know it’s heart pounding! Why not turn up and scare the living daylights out of everyone in a Five nights a Freddy’s outfit? 
 
Make it a Throwback: Maybe arcade games aren’t your forte… but the 80s are. Go looking for everything day-glo and tease that hair by dressing as an 80s arcade patron.!
