I get so many requests, a lot of them end up falling through the cracks of the internetz, so I decided that I’m going to put together a MEGA request list for future outfits.

I just signed up for Loot Crate and can’t wait to see what my first crate holds! It seriously is like getting a surprise birthday present every month! I know this isn’t gaming/fashion related, but I’m on a bit of a Loot Crate high right now (so deal with it). Anywho, check it out and there will be a new outfit posted tomorrow. Here’s a hint: BIOSHOCK!
Outfit inspired by Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite)
I wanted to replicate the vintage style of the game through a longer cut skirt. The shirt is reminiscent of Elizabeth’s first outfit with the front tie. I also chose a cameo necklace to add more of a vintage splash and bird earrings as a nod to Song Bird.
Skirt: Forever 21, Top: Marshalls, Necklace: Vintage Stone, Earrings: Lucky Brand, Bracelets: Forever 21
Style Advice: When wearing a front tie top, be sure to tie up the top before you button it. The buttons secure the tie from coming undone and keep it positioned nicely.
Since there’s no new outfit today (I apologize - I’m super swamped with my last exam coming up on Wednesday), I thought I’d still give you a gaming inspired outfit! This one is inspired by Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite and put together by me in real life! I’m starting to do more and more inspired outfits in my daily attire and figured I’d share the best ones on here periodically.
I recently reorganized C2C’s Pinterest boards and added an exciting new board: Gaming Inspired Fashion.
I’ll be posting clothing and accessories that I find online that look “inspired” by certain characters or games. For instance, above are a pair of earrings that remind me of Princess Peach - they’ve got the same colors as her dress and that ladylike style she flaunts.
Console to Closet is almost at 50,000 followers!!! I can’t believe it! That’s so many stylish gamers!
I think I’m going to giveaway some of my PAX East swag once we hit that milestone, but in the meantime, don’t forget to enter our Insert Coin Clothing giveaway for a chance to win a sweet Resident Evil inspired top! To enter, just tweet #C2CBDAY with your favorite C2C outfit to date.
