To celebrate their "Art of Video Games" exhibit, the Smithsonian has sent out a call via email for fans to show their undying love for games via art, costumes, and even food. The calling states "We're particularly interested in seeing creative and crazy costumes inspired by your favorite game characters." Be careful what you wish for Smithsonian, we're a...ahem...interesting lot.
