7. Master Chief (Halo Saint)
It may have started with a generic robot outfit, but superfan Master Chief felt some serious costuming inspiration with the release of Halo 3, and added a little sci-fi gaming flavor. With his unmistakable suit of armor and mirrored helmet, Master Chief is a favorite of Comic Con costumers, and the extension to Saints superfandom seems logical. Although there’s no distinct connection between Halo and NOLA, the costume is appropriately powerful and cuts a striking figure in the stands. Hoo-ah, Master Chief!
6. Darth Saint
Perhaps the best thing about the dumpster fire of the Star Wars franchise known as Episode One was the creation of Darth Maul, who got pitifully less screen time than his striking visage and general badassery deserved. But NOLA gets to look upon his slightly terrifying countenance every week in the Dome (though in black and gold, and not Atlanta red). The stellar makeup job -- including the freaky yellow & red contact lenses -- makes us proud as a city.
5. The Joker
It’s difficult to deny the appeal of the Joker, whether or not you go with Cesar Romero’s campy '60s version, the Mark Hamill-voiced animated one, or Heath Ledger’s iconic turn in The Dark Knight. So it seems only fitting that the Joker, with his makeup and mania, should be a Saints fan. The costume and his enthusiasm are admirable, but we can’t help but cut a couple of points off here for his notorious groping of Jimmy Graham in the end zone (even if he did apologize...not cool, bruh).
