What’s the best way to start a convention? With a geeky fashion team-up, of course! To kick off Katsucon in style, we got together with the fabulous Zhobot.net duo of Heather and Nate, along with our other friend Denis, for a photoshoot featuring casual outfits based upon characters from the popular Xbox game, Dance Central.  You’ll get to see half of the pictures from the photoshoot here, and you can check out the rest over at Zhobot.net!

EMILIA

Bria:  Oh Emilia.  Emilia is my girl.  I play as her so exclusively that I earned some sort of Xbox achievement for “playing favourites”.  As much as I love her though, the girl seems to have trouble wearing things that aren’t ripped.

This outfit was based off of her Crew Look from DC2 with bonus accessories from her Retro outfit from DC3 because I had that costume with me for the con.  Emilia’s not really the type to get dolled up so I wanted to keep it casual.  This is her “What do you mean I can’t wear ripped things or jeans to the club? Ugh fiiiiine Jaryn, I’ll put on a skirt” look.  Sacrifices have to be made so they can sneak Glitch into the club.

Lin: Well, this conversation basically started and ended with all my buddies strongarming me ha ha ha. But who am I to say no to the prospect of a pink-haired colourbomb raver? Besides, pink wig. I got this one.

Direction was muting a candy kid palette just enough for streetwear; the various blues are a callback to her eletric turquoise raver pants from both her apperances. And then bringing it all to space — because who doesn’t love the c o s m o s.

I also wanted to align futher with the dancekid inspo, so toned down bangle and armwarmer situation got to stay, and the sneakers, too; a pair of tights were also added to a skirt that would otherwise limit movement. Afterall, a girl’s gotta be ready to go go go on the dancefloor.
