Let’s create some mashup words. Fashionista + Gamer = Gashonista? Fashmer? Gameonista? I kinda like the last one.
Several notable game series are releasing fashion lines and to be honest, gaming fashion can be done correctly if it continues to follow this trend. Now, while I respect the work and dedication that many Cosplayers give to their craft, in the end, it is more about accurately portraying the look and persona of a character, than fashioning an outfit based on that. What I’m talking about, is the transcendence of gaming to inspire fashion that can be brought, tastefully, to daily life.
