Halloween can be hard, I know. You don’t want to end up standing in line outside a Ricky’s, staring at physically improbable models of comic book-level disproportions waiting to purchase whatever leftover Scream mask is still on the shelves because you waited too long to figure out your costume. You also want to make sure you top that getup you wore a couple years ago when complete strangers wanted to take your picture and you won the holiday.
Yeah, that’s right. Everyone’s favorite avatar from one of the internet’s most favorite original web series has her own eight-piece costume that you can own on backorder starting October 1st for the low price of $49.99. (This could be you!)
I caught up with The Guild creator and Codex’s real life counterpart, Felicia Day to find out how the costume came to be.
Tubefilter: How’d a Codex costume end up at HalloweenCostumes.com?
Felicia Day: We solicited help for The Guild Season 5 cosplayers over our Twitter and Facebook, and one of the employees over at Halloweencostumes.com was a fan and saw the posts. She arranged to loan us a TON of stuff to use in the season, which really saved us SO much when we were trying to pull off a real-looking convention on a web budget.
About a month ago they approached us about making the costume, and it felt like a perfect fit.
TF: Will you be dressing up as Codex for Hallowen?
FD: Not sure if I’ll be cosplaying Codex…seems a bit self-aggrandizing. Since we have so many great costumes leftover from the season, I might snag Tink’s Robin Hood. I loved that one.
TF: Will we be seeing any other Guild character costumes in the future?
FD: We’ll see how this one sells first. I am still blown away that I see people wearing outfits from our show at every single convention. Such an amazing tribute, I would love to offer more. We’ll see.
