Rovio Mobile’s Angry Birds [$.99FreeLiteHDHD Free] is a big deal. It and its various iterations have been downloaded collectively over 350 million times, advertisers and marketers are licensing the property’s characters and mechanics at will to promote products like nuts and phones, Wal-Mart is selling official toys in kiosks, and now at least one enterprising retailer is set to start offering a gigantic line-up of dreadful Halloween costumes based on the IP.

Fulfilling the world’s fantasy of being a Pig King for a day is Costume Discounters. The company is now taking pre-orders for a host Angry Birds helmets, baby costumes, and regular costumes based on the brand. It’s hard to tell at a glance if these are official goods, but that point doesn’t drown out the fact that Angry Birds demands a level of awareness so great that retailers reckon people will wrap their babies in it. This is wild stuff.

Anyway, if you’re into looking like a doofus an Angry Birds character this Halloween, you can grab a costume for around $30-$50. Look how happy these people are! You could be happy like them!

    ....for the first time in my life, I may actually be scared of Halloween now. Anyone that tricks or treats wearing -that- is going to get more than just "sweets" from me.

    Now, that's the shit.

    On a different note, lmao at these comments.

    Typical TA article fail, complete with disastrous attempt at too-cool-for-school hipster snark. And the comments are even worse.

    Angry Birds is popular ... it's colorful ... it has iconic cartoon characters ... kids dig it. It's pretty much a perfect fit for Halloween.

    Time to get over yourself, Brad.

      seriously? hahahaha. I know some haters are funny, but you just passed it :')
      So, according to you, let me just get this, you criticize TA for writing a tad sarcastic article over THIS? My 10 year old sister walked in and laughed at these costumes. Their lame. Go troll some other place man, but ill admit. You did make me smile :)

      It's a shame that such kids would buy a shitty indie game.

        It only becomes shitty, when it becomes popular.

      • theRPGNOOB

        It is shitty because it lacks content, its repatative, has shit gameplay and has nothing good about it. Also Duke Nukem wants his sunglasses back.

    If ever there was a reason to go 'egging' on Halloween this year, this would be it! 3 Stars for hitting someone with the Angry Birds headpiece!
