Some kids choose to dress up as their favorite superhero or cartoon character for Halloween, but one kid decided to portray his favorite Twitch streamer and the results are amazing.
With the rise of Fortnite Battle Royale in 2018, many broadcasters have expanded their viewership to include the youngest of gamers.
Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo is one of these broadcasters as his popular stream on Twitch has inspired one young viewer to create an amazing Halloween costume this year.
DrLupo’s iconic setup featuring multiple monitors and his signature chair were faithfully created in this costume that was posted to Twitter by the fan’s mother.

While the fake monitors and headset are great in their own right, this costume takes it one step further by even putting pictures on the screen to make it look like the youngster is actually streaming to thousands of viewers on Twitch.
The creative kid’s mom said that the pictures used were ones that he really liked and depict DrLupo’s son, Charlie, saying hello to fellow streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins on stream.
It only took a couple hours for the costume to reach DrLupo who was quick to retweet the fan’s costume, calling him a “freakin’ legend.”

The amazing costume and video were met with widespread praise from everyone excited to see such passion from this fan, with one person even wondering why Luke’s setup was better than their own.
This was just another example of the gaming community’s extreme dedication to coming up with some of the most creative and inventive creations out there.
