Ever wonder how much it would cost to actually dress like a video game character? While many are set in fantastical worlds with technology we can only dream of, there are some real life equivalents. Sunglass Warehouse compiled 11 popular video game characters and estimated the real life costs of their iconic apparel. For example, Master Chief’s Mjolnir suit in Halo can be compared to the actual exoskeleton the military is currently testing, called TALOS.
