GET YOUR GEEK ON WITH COL!
Hi guys, Colette here – videogames nerd and super fan of fashion!
So like many of you, I’d been looking forward to Insert Coin releasing their PlayStation gear for some time now and I couldn’t be happier that it’s finally landed! (YAY)
Growing up, PlayStation played a huge part in my gaming life. My first ever PS games were Final Fantasy VII and Mickey’s Wild Adventure, and I loved them to pieces! It was games like these, along with Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon and Metal Gear Solid that really helped set me off along the path of videogaming.
The ‘Player’ jacket is my favourite from this release. I really love the varsity style design on the outside, but also the attention to detail on the inside.
You can’t really see this on the website photos, but the inside of this jacket has an awesome PlayStation themed lining going on, as well as an inside pocket to securely store items like your phone. It’s extremely comfy, I haven’t wanted to take it off since it arrived! This piece is a must have, not just for Sony lovers, but gaming fans in general, simply because it marks a part of gaming history and the fact our little baby PlayStation is all grown up! *sniff, sniff*
Here are some styling ideas for an awesome look…
The ‘First Person Shooter’ is an interesting one and a style I’ve been a fan of for a long time. The first time I ever bought a shooter, I was a bit worried about how I’d style it. Especially as here in England, it’s hardly the type of weather to be busting out the gun show…..if you know what I mean? This piece will be perfect for those summer months. Rock it with some shorts or ladies can style it oversized as a dress. While it’s cold, I’ll be pairing mine with a long sleeved top underneath. It still looks ace and will keep you from catching a chill. I also like to dress it up by tucking it into a black skirt. This look works with a bodycon or skater style skirt and is an easy way to turn it into a perfect daytime outfit.
All these pieces are made to a super high quality and you can check out the range on the IC PlayStation Store.
I love that lots of the Insert Coin community are already representing the #CoinArmy in their ‘Player’ jackets too…
I also love seeing how you guys rock your Insert Coin gear, tweet me your outfits and I might be able to feature you in my next blog…
Colette has been a hugely supportive member of the Insert Coin family since our very early days. Always a keen gamer, on leaving Uni, she managed to secure an internship and subsequently a job in the gaming industry – a role she still loves. In her spare time, she is a cosplayer and, up until recently, was also a regular blogger for Official Nintendo Magazine. She sometimes gives us a ‘hand’ at the odd Expo too – so you may have already met her in the real world!
