With Halloween coming up, and everybody’s favorite cosmic horror about backstabbing, shapeshifting aliens still sitting pretty atop the Steam Charts and Twitch Directory, you can expect there to be a whole lot of Among Us costumes and cosplay this time around.
Among Us has a very distinct art style that finds beauty in simplicity, and packages grotesque violence behind a cutesy, Saturday morning-cartoon aesthetic. And, unsurprisingly, many of those looking to do some high-level Among Us cosplay gear or Among Us costumes end up hitting an inevitable fork in the road.
What kind of real-world costume best sends the Among Us message? Is it full-blown astronaut gear? Jumpsuits? How can you get the best read on your Among Us costume this Halloween?
Well, you can quit sweating like you’re doing wires in Electrical because we’re about to show you how to build the best Among Us Halloween Costume.
