Anyway, since I didn't post yesterday and I have no outfits to share today, I figured I should do something. I've been thinking about PAX (the Penny Arcade Expo, a gaming convention) a ton lately, as Greg and I are leaving for Seattle on Thursday to attend! It was Greg's birthday present to me back in May, and finally it shall be realized. I've never been to a convention before, so I'm dying of excitement!
In a fit of inspiration, I put together a Polyvore look for each day of the convention. These are the outfits I'd wear if I had my way. Unfortunately I'll have to improvise, but that will just make getting dressed more interesting. Behold!
I'd start out the convention with something comfortable and versatile, the old standby, jeans and a t-shirt. I'd mix it up with fun sneakers, layers, and accessories, and of course I'd wear a Yoshi shirt (favorite Mario character ever). I think layers are important, as you never know how warm or cold it might be in the convention center with tons of people milling about.
On day two I'd go for a more feminine look, but stick with a fun vibe and bright colors. Video games are inherently bright and colorful, so I reflected that in these outfits. I'd be comfortable all day in flat boots, a light dress, and a bag big enough to fit all of my portable gaming systems!
On day three I'd go all out! Print mixing, Mario t-shirt, bright accessories, and a Squirtle plushie! You may as well be remembered by everyone who sees you, right? It's important to make an impression, and with this super fun outfit, I'm sure I'd succeed. If only I actually had bright red geek glasses...
What do you think? Are geeky conventions something you'd like to check out sometime? What's an event you'd love to attend, and how would you dress for it?
