In this 2019 GDC talk, Kitfox Games’ Victoria Tran explores the recent history of fashion in games and provides multiple tips for making your own character design Fashion-worthy. It’s an often overlooked area in games maybe because it being male dominated at the start, but I am glad more diverse voices are coming out in this medium to address diversity issues.
I also had a hunch before that some of the game female characters she mention had meaningless fashion like Ashe from Final Fantasy 12 and Quiet 🤫 from MGSV.
Love she mention the Geeky Baju Project from Southeast Asia. its usually a place where its not explored in Games media.
one of the things that has not been done successfully was fashion brand tie ins.
The only one doing it is maybe Uniqlo with their brand tie-ins and maybe Hero Within 🦸♂️ 🦸♀️ Clothing line which features Geek style but with modern fashion trendy stuff. Quite unique stuff.
