Fashion In Video Games

I love video games. I love video games that incorporates fashion into their characters. I love the details the developers put into their characters and when done right, you can find yourself easily inspired to blend their ideas into your own style. Here are a few examples of how fashion in video games can jumpstart your creativity (and closet).

Which character would you choose to stylize yourself after?

(I’d personally go for Nathan Drake. Casual. Cool. Comfortable… or Zack Fair from Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core. Just cause he’s awesome.)

Baby, Baby, Baby, Oh!

Take a look at this wall decal created by designedDESIGNER for a child’s bedroom. I’m in love with the colour combination and would definitely use this to add a bit of adventure to my kid’s bedroom. If these colours do not suit your needs though, not to worry. You are able to choose up to three colours of your choice!

You can purchase the decals here.

And yes I made a Justin Bieber reference for the title.

Nothing But The Beat

 David Guetta who is famously known for producing hits for The Black Eyed Peas (I Gotta Feeling, Boom Boom Pow) is set to release his 5th studio album Nothing But The Beat on August 26th 2011.

Opening up the album with Where Them Girls At (Feat. Flo-Rida & Nicki Minaj) will instantly give you the atmosphere of the album. A fun, care-free, hard hitting beats where you’ll have the urge to just get up and dance. Lyrically, it’s your typical club track but let’s be honest, you don’t head to the club to pay attention to the lyrics. You want to have fun and David Guetta captures that perfectly in the opening song. With the combination of Flo-Rida and Nicki Minaj’s vocals, you have a tune that is surely going to be stuck in your head.

Midway through the album calms things down for a bit (albeit still having that “clubbing” feel to it). Without You (Feat. Usher) is one of those songs that plays in the background while drinking with your accompanying friends. It has an uplifting melody speaking about how one is incapable of reaching his/her fullest potential without a certain person who is (I’m assuming) the most important person in their life.

The next three tracks kicks things up a notch (hard!) Some of you may recognize Dev as the voice behind the ever so popular ”Bass Down Low” as well as being featured in Far East Movement’s “Like a G6”. When I saw that she was featured in  I Just Wanna F*ck along with Timbaland,  I knew that it would be an instant hit with me. The song grabs you in as soon as it starts. Definitely one of my favourite tracks.

Nearing the end of the album you have British pop singer Jessie J with Repeat. Once again, it delivers that uplifting atmosphere but unlike Usher who sang about one’s struggles with achieving certain goals, Jessie J talks about how she’s moving on from an unfulfilling relationship and how she’s “dancing to a brand new beat”. Lyrically, I find this track to be the best as it encourage’s one to move on and not be “stuck on repeat”.

At the end of it all, you get what you paid for and what you get is an album featuring various artists of different genres. I mean, I would never have thought Sia would sing a track produced by David Guetta with the end result being nothing short of fantastic. While there are definitely some tracks better than others, I wouldn’t skip a single song. This whole album has left me leaving a little loose and just… wanting to have fun! It’s not an album to take serious by any means but it’s definitely an album that would make you forget your worries.

By the time you finish, you truly are left with nothing but the beat.
