Codex Halloween Costume

For immediate release:

MINNEAPOLIS, September 7, 2011 – The Guild and are proud to announce the debut of an officially licensed Codex Halloween costume. View the Codex costume. The costume is based on the red and white corseted dress worn by Felicia Day as Codex in The Guild’s 2009 music video “(Do You Wanna Date My) Avatar.” The Guild’s Codex costume will be available for purchase at

The Guild is an award-winning web series created by and starring Felicia Day (Eureka, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog). On the show, Day plays Cyd Sherman, a bright and endearing online gamer with a few offline anxiety issues. Day also plays Codex, Cyd’s more confident (but virtual) alter ego.

Codex has become a favorite of many, and The Guild cast and crew frequently encounter Codex look-alikes and cosplayers at conventions and other events. In fact, costumes and cosplay are so much part of the culture that season five of The Guild is set at a convention not unlike Comic-Con. “I’ve always thought of Codex as a superhero for gamer girls and women,” says Day. “She’s smart, sexy, and confident. To be able to offer access to her costume on a wider basis is a real dream come true!”

More information on The Guild Codex Halloween costume is available on the website. The costume will arrive in early October, in time for Halloween 2011. There is an option to sign up for immediate email notification when it becomes available for purchase. has an exclusive license with The Guild and plans to offer more costumes and accessories from the popular web series in the future.  Both parties are excited to launch the line this Halloween with the Codex costume. After all, what can be more fun than dressing up as everyone’s favorite avatar?

        We take the measurements of the costumes when they arrive. Once they do, there will be a measurement chart on the page with a breakdown of chest, waist, and the dress' length in inches.

      In order to get this Codex costume ready in time for Halloween 2011 and keep the price range accessible, we had to forgo the staff. The Guild and plan to make more great costumes and accessories available in the future... but this Halloween may require some craftiness and ingenuity by those who want to rock a DIY staff. (Worth it, though - the dress is really pretty!)

      Thanks for the feedback!

    Do the "leg wraps" include the shoes as well?

      Leg wraps are just fabric and do not include the shoes.

      We do have a shoe section on the site, or you can doctor up a pair of your own. The model wore a pair of brown high-heeled sandals for the shoot. I think heels or flats of any sort would work. These shoes aren't "official" by any means, but we love them:
