Looking for a different way to cosplay your favorite retro video game? I’m sure you ask yourself this all the time. Deela Designs came up with a solution: fashionable gowns. She designed and made three different dresses for three different games. Tetris, Space Invaders, and Pac-Man are all represented. Deela and her friends wore the fancy dresses at PAX last fall, and I can’t get over how creative they are. You can wear them on their own or dress them up by making jewelry to match or by adding light-up features with electronics such as LEDs or EL wire.
