Stylist to the video-game stars

Console to Closet

The world of video games and fashion rarely collide, and maybe that’s because most gamers tend to lack fashion sense. But for gaming student and fashion nut Amanda McGinnis, these two worlds couldn’t have more in common—both video games and fashion have a high level of detail and aesthetic, after all. That’s why McGinnis created her Console to Closet blog to highlight outfits she’s styled that are inspired by video-game characters. There are outfits influenced by gaming figures such as Donkey Kong, Connor (from Assassin’s Creed III) and Duke Nukem, to name just a few. The pieces of the outfits are sold from varying manufacturers. Fortunately, McGinnis provides links to all the real-world pieces, so you can shop online to wear your own version of her video-game inspired outfit on your next night out on the town.
