Otaku influenced fashion doesn’t always lend itself to subtlety all that well, something that ironically goes against the “anything goes, as long as it is private” attitude of the previous, and not particularly fashion conscious generation. Mercifully for those looking for a more credible way to wear their hearts on their sleeves their exists people like J.S.Art for armor and weapon aficionados, and for the retro gamers out there – THUNDERBOX.
THUNDERBOX has experimented with a couple of geek/otaku references so far, but he seems pretty settled on the Nintendo Gameboy right now. The philosophy of creation taught by its creator Gunpei Yokoi actually fits very well in fashion and there is so much to draw out of the iconic design of the unit itself before you even begin to explore the games themselves.
