On BattleCON Online, we've released special holiday costume variants for popular characters, such as the Halloween costume for Hepzibah, or Kajia's Christmas Tree outfit (both shown above). We'll include these variants, plus some more upcoming ones, as bonus costumes in BattleCON: War Extended Edition. Feel free to make suggestions for your favorite character + holiday pairing below!

Post your best ideas here and discuss!

I think a Valentine's Day set with one of the couples of Indines would be fun. Joal and Vannah or Arec and Kallistar, with a synergistic UA that would make the pair fun to play against an EX opponent or in a 2-player dungeon.

And as Brisingre mentioned in the KS comments: we need Dia De Los Muertos Byron with a skull mask.

Since it's for the War kickstarter, I'm guessing you don't want suggestions for characters from Devastation?

This goal is for both War and Devastation chars. You can suggest either.

And i still say we should get Carnaval Kehrolyn. She is a shapeshifter, she can grow peacock feathers at will.

I was seeing an Uncle Sam-esque Alexian for Independence Day perhaps. "I want YOU to join the Jefferys Army."

We really need someone in an Easter Bunny costume, and I can't for the life of me think of someone appropriate. You could do an Easter themed Mikhail, but that might be in poor taste if done wrong.

You could do a Valentine's Day Mikhail with him dressed as cupid, though I really like the idea posted above regarding one of the existing known couples being a Valentine's Day duo.

Heketch as a Tooth Fairy. (not really a holiday, just a silly thought)

Cadenza in a Nutcracker/British Beefeater costume if you are cool with another Christmas theme.

A St Patrick's Day Hikaru... just the thought of him with his dukes up in a Leprechaun costume is funny to me.

I'll try to think of more

Do fictional holidays work?
If so, you could do somebody for Festivus (from Seinfeld) and Quatro De Mayo (from Arrested Development (though it seems to be the basically the same as Cinco, except a day earlier, so maybe stick with Cinco instead)). I don't have any suggestions for characters to match up with either of those days, but I'm sure somebody else could come up with good pairings.

edit: There's a "real" holiday called (iirc) Life Day. It's just a celebration of Star Wars, but I think they made it into a "real" thing. I think Clive would pair up well with it cuz he would build his own lightsaber.

That might fit for International Tabletop Day.

Egg Borneo! I can see the frustrated look on his little pink face in the art already...

I'd love to see more costumes that are less Christian or US centric:

Day of the Dead Eustace is almost too easy.

For Chinese (Lunar) New Year, I think Burman et al are the wrong kind of dragon, much more Western (stolid, fire-breathing) than Eastern (sinuous, wise).

Holi should have some good candidates.

There's a certain "storming the gates" quality to Oriana, so I'd like to nominate a Bastille Day costume for her.

Tabletop Day Clive or Khadath.

I know it is not a true holiday, but it would be good to get behind this great initiative for promoting playing games.

You could make a version of Kallistar (red, white, blue + fireworks) that would work for Independence Day and Bastille Day.

Brazilian Carnival themed costume for Oriana, Lixis, or Tatsumi. Oriana has the imperious air about her necessary to pull off the parade outfit, Lixis has the tropical vibe, and Tatsumi is, uhhh, endowed enough for the role.
