Vampires and cowboys are a staple of Halloween. On the night of October 31 in any given neighborhood across America, one can barely smash a pumpkin without coming across a trick-or-treater dressed as either a bloodsucker or a dude-ranch alumnus. High Moon Studios has decided to exploit this untapped market by launching a line of costumes bases on its decently reviewed PlayStation 2 and Xbox actioner Darkwatch. Designed and manufactured by California Costume Collections, Inc., the costume will sport clothing and accessories re-creating the outfit worn by the game's half-vampire gunslinger hero, Jericho Cross. The costumes will be available at All Hallows' Eve-centric retailers such as Party City and Spencer Gifts, Party America, Halloween Express, Halloween Scene, Halloween Adventure, and BuySeasons.com.

dude. OMG no way. that is so sweet. i'm going to go look for them. and i am going to wear my trench coat with it.
rokkuman09 Hmmpf, I don't know about the costumes in the actual game and the real life ones, but kids are known for adoring Halloween-style costumes, so your logic is fundamentally flawed.
A costume based on a M rated game targeted toward young kids...oh boy. That's just not right, also this game wasn't super popular so either way it won't sell well, so I really I diagree with it morally and I think it's a bad decision money wise. I really just don't think they will make much of this.
This game stunk. It was way over hyped and did not deliver that good of an experience. I played it for a day and traded in.
UK people can buy one here... :P http://shop.joke.co.uk/epages/jokecouk.storefront/452ea8c1014272516270d9cc6ce4071b/Product/View/4617?Pid=4619
I'm sure I'm not the only person who thinks this is a bad idea.Looking at the gamespace I see a rating of Mature with Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Mature Sexual Themes, and Language.
I wouldn't want to see kids wearing costumes based on this game.
I'm one of those boring people who don't go trick-or-treating or open the door to any of them, i've got the costume bit down though, and i didn't have to buy anything :P.
