How Much Does Your Favourite Video Game Character's Outfit Cost?

Video game characters have it easy: they never have to change clothes. Whether they’re saving the world or just catching Pokemon, our heroes — Master Chief, Link, Mario, Samus Aran — are always wearing the same damn thing. But their outfits aren’t always cheap.
