Super stoked to get my game on, dudes. Wait. Hold up. Hey, man! Wtf. Yeah, you! Who else is here? Is that my...? That's my controller, dude. I don't care whose house you were at or who's borrowing what. I'm not in the business of replacing people's gear. You'll have to get your own. Really, Xander? Really? Crying is not going to get you a controller. Are you going to cry when someone beats your high score in Centipede, tonight? Huh? The moment you shed a tear, it's game over, bro. Pull yourself together!
Hm? Oh, hello! :D How much of that did you hear? You know what, never mind. Hey, man! Check out my scary, geeky outfit. :3 I don't know what it is about me, but somehow I'm able to fuse nerdiness and fear without much effort. Usually, I don't even notice when I do it. Haha. I'm just weird, I guess.
For whatever reason, I thought it'd be a good idea to wear a retro gaming tee and retro gaming socks, but sex it up with tights and over the knee socks and then supplant sexiness with fear via a ninja scarf wrap (my face was cold!) and steampunk sunglasses. I mentioned that I was weird, right? o_O
Now, I know what you're going to say: "Really, dude? All black? Cop out much?" And..I mean..Yeah. You got me. Hehe. I can't be colorful all the time, though! I try, but it's hard. Geez. >_< To make up for the overabundance of dark hues, I played around with shapes and lengths. I turned the black pleated high low skirt to the side (also, why haven't I ever done this, before!?!?), so it created some varying lengths at all angles. Then, I layered my socks using alternating heights to bring a little more playfulness to the outfit and increase visual appeal. I did what I could to make all-black interesting. :P
I was really happy to see the gaming socks in my sponsor package from Sock It To Me, because I'm a huuuuge gaming nerd. To re-iterate, I didn't get to choose what I received. So, I had little idea of what to expect. That being said, I'm happy with everything I got and I'm excited to show you the rest! ^_^
This outfit is totally the kind of thing that I wear to play games. In fact, I went to the arcade in this. :D It was my day and night outfit. I've been to that arcade a few times and I've never seen any girls in there. Only dudes. What's up with that? I know there are female gamers out there. Granted, they don't roll up into arcades looking scary like me. Hehe. I know I wasn't holding it down for my gender or whatever when I was there, but at least I was there! :P So, this message is for all of you (ladies and dudes):
Grab a bag of quarters, guzzle some brews and get your game on! Have a rad weekend! <3
