The Evil Uncle

Nintendo Vs Sega Party 7th August, London: A Costume Guide

Posted in Uncategorized by bandsxbass on July 30, 2009

nintendo-vs-sega-vwersion-4So we’ve had news of some great outfits for the Nintendo Vs Sega Party so far – a Chun Li and Blanca couple (Street Fighter II), James Bond (Goldeneye) and Rayden (Mortal Kombat) have all been confirmed.

There is also now the fantastic prize of a MEGA DRIVE CONSOLE for the best costume! This will be announced by the Popes Of Chillitown after their set.

For those of you not so familiar with Sega and Nintendo, don’t worry – you can still dress up! Below are some classic Sega and Nintendo games,  with suggestions for costumes – we can’t all be Mario you know!

Luckily SEGA totally cashed in on the sport/film video game market and made a game for pretty much every big action film of the 90s!

If you need a good fancy dress shop in Camden, there’s a place callled Escapade down the road from the Dublin Castle. Click here.


Shinobi was a real Sega classic and is fndly remembered.

COSTUME – Dress as a ninja – easy! Black cloth, armbands, aand face mask covering your face up to your nose…
