What should Bionicle characters wear for Halloween?


Recommended Posts

There's a popular headcanon that Matoran celebrate a holiday or festival similar to Halloween, sometimes referred to as Karzahni day.


So, what kinds of Halloween costumes should your favourite Bionicle characters wear?


Answers can be something they'd realistically do in-universe, for example Matoran dressing up as scary Rahi or Bohrok (though Av-Matoran might consider the latter a bit offensive). I can picture Takua doing the equivalent of the "dog in a spider costume" prank by putting a big scorpion tail on Pewku and have her running around at night terrorising trick-or-treaters.


Alternatively, ignore what's plausible in the canon- what costume would YOU have them wear? Hewkii and Macku dressed as WALL-E and Eve? Takua in a Pikachu onesie? Kopaka as Elsa? (You might need Lewa and Pohatu's help to stuff him into the dress, but I'm sure they'd be happy to oblige.)


What do you think they should wear?

Kopaka would dress up as a giant salt-shaker, that's for sure. Pohatu would dress up as a pepper shaker to go with him, much to Kopaka's dismay. Beyond that, I have no idea.


As for what I'd have them wear, I'd make them all cosplay as Smite gods. Kopaka would be Skadi (though I'd be darned if I know who's going to be Kaldr, so maybe he'd be Ullr), Pohatu would be Mercury, Tahu would be Agni, Lewa would be Susano'o, Gali would be Poseidon, Onua would be Cabrakan, and Takanuva would be Ra, complete with annoying ka-kawing.

Kopaka would probably be a knight of some sort, though how one would even get him to participate in a Halloween festival is beyond me.  I think Gali would get a kick out of a pirate costume.  For Pohatu... I don't know, but I'd bet he and Lewa would pull off the craziest, most elaborate costumes.


I wonder what decorations the Matoran would put around their huts for Karzahni day, though... Fikou webs?  Mask-o'-lanterns?  Hafu carving a giant twenty-foot-tall skeleton?

If a day like Halloween did exist in the Bionicle Canon, then I wouldn't be surprised if a few Matoran attempted to dress up like Toa, Turaga, or maybe even the Great Beings. Or they could dress up like their favorite Rahi, to name another example.


As for non-canon costumes, I could see Turaga Vakama dressing up as Master Yoda. I don't know why, but I think he could pull it off.

Everyone is one choice away from being the bad guy in another person's story.

As for a canon sense, I would imagine the Matoran dressing up as Toa, Turaga, favorite Rahi, and villains. For Agori, they would dress as Glatorian, Vorox, Skrall, Bone Hunters, and animals from Spherus, like Sand Stalkers or Rock Steeds. As for people from Okoto, they would dress as Toa, Ekimu, Skull Spiders, Skull Creatures, Elemental Creatures, Umarak, Shadow Traps, Elemental Beasts, or Makuta.

I like Lego, Bionicle, and Hero Factory!:)
