Tomorrow night, I will be performing with a video game orchestra ensemble. It's going to be a major performance in Boston. I am encouraged to dress up as a video game character. The problem is that I have very limited options. I'm in college, poor, with a limited selection of clothing to do such a thing. Can you guys help me brainstorm on some makeshift costume ideas?

Stuff I have: red sweatshirt, couple pairs of blue jeans, 1 pair of black jeans, buttoned collared shirts, various t shirts, thermowear, white sneakers, formal concert suit, black dress shoes, white shower robe, white towels, red beanie, peruvian beanie...and that's about it...

Yeah, not much, I know. I was thinking maybe I could dress up as Solid Snake...he doesn't require that much stuff. Just a bandanna right? But then again I don't have a bandanna.

Other considerations: I will be playing violin. It's probably going to be crowded around me. I have to be able to see the conductor (obviously).

Edit: Provide pictures if possible.

Update: I went as some casual dressed dude in Silent Hill 4. Maybe I'll post a picture up later. Or you can just imagine a really preppily dressed Asian guy.

That kind of thing would actually be convenient if I was playing guitar. But, I am playing violin and anything like that would get in the way of me being able to properly position the violin under my chin.

go to an op shop and get a pair of overalls or something and go as mario. you surely have a cap to tape an M on to compelete the costume.

Man, I have a cap, but it's too tight (nonadjustable). I think I might fall into a coma if I wear it long enough.

That only looks cute in the game. If I wear that I just look like a prep/frat guy, which is still pretty cute but a different kind of cute.

Anyways, keep the suggestions coming!

^Also not a bad idea considering it's Boston and the fire will probably only be lukewarm in the cold.

I don't know exactly what you mean, but yes and no. The music we play are from video games, many of which are very rock/metal/pop oriented. It will be played by a full orchestra alongside a rock band and a chorus.

Will there be bootlegs of this performance?

Hopefully. With good sound quality too.
