Displaying your love for games can be a tricky affair when juggled with the desire to retain a limited amount of credibility. Personally I like to show my true colours in a very subtle way through discreet items of jewelery – ah to combine my two loves of jewelery and games! Oh! And Rebecca of course!
Well, maybe not so discreet…. But you can imagine how these rings slip easily into pretty much any gyaru-o or host outift. You could even get away with the one on the right with a suit.
The two rings (as you might already know) are from Final Fantasy VII Advent Children and Final Fantasy X, the really great thing as a fan are they are the rings ACTUALLY worn by the characters. So you are not just wearing a motif from the game on a t-shirt etc, but the very same item from the game. Square Enix have clearly realised that that is something that fans want because most of their new silver items are directly from the game in question. And we can definitely look forward to the suits from FFXIII Versus cropping up in Kawano soon.
Talking of which these two pendants are from Final Fantasy XIII:
Both are comparatively cheap for silver jewelery and do feature a good amount of work. The 3 stones in lightings pendant move up and down in the central channel and Sera’s has got a great stone in the centre.
Even when I am wearing other rings I always have a bit of a gaming iconography with me at all times in the form of Vincent’s Symbol from Final Fantasy VII Dirge of Cerebus (one of my favorite character designs of all time I might add)
A great bit of detailing and while it may not be hanging from a gun (as Vincent’s does) it cheers me up everyday to see it hanging next to my keys.
I love it when someone clocks that some of my jewelery is from a game or even better when they have no idea and compliment me anyway. I just think it goes to show how much great design goes into games and how close that is to the world of fashion – you just have to look at JRPG hair and Gyaru-O hair to see that!
So I hope I have inspired you to represent your favorite games in some way in your fashion – the two are not as mutually exclusive as the non-gamers would have us believe!
