I think it's no secret that I'm a bit of a gamer (I mean I had a Reshiram GIF in my blog sidebar for the best part of 2 years) so when the opportunity to work with Nintendo cropped up, of course I couldn't refuse - especially when the game is all about fashion!
New Style Boutique is all about the rise to the top of the fashion world - whether it's managing a boutique, being an ace hairdresser or pro make-up artist, there are a ton of career paths you can choose - but I won't spoil it too much for you guys.
At the start of the game you create your character and pick out a style kit that suits you best (boho, girly or gothic) - obviously I chose gothic, and inside were some badass pieces; biker jackets, chunky boots, buckles and black galore! I dressed my character up in some adorable outfits (photos after the break) so I thought I'd recreate the style in real life!
The outfits I created in the app were all centred around high socks and a mini skirt, just looks so cute! There's a high-neck top in my game wardrobe, and luckily I have one in my real-life wardrobe so picked that out, and of course I couldn't leave out the biker jacket! As the print on the top is kinda witchy, I thought I'd add my own twist with this rad 'book of spells' clutch - it's got pentagrams all printed on the inside and is my new obsession, so damn awesome!
At the start of the game you pick out a hairstyle and colour (no pink unfortunately...but that changes!) and are greeted by a very enthusiastic girl who will help you on your journey of being a boutique owner. I'm now at the stage where I get to buy in different styles, the wardrobe on this game is seriously killer, would deffo swap with my IRL stuff!
I've already found the local rock club and performed a set (yep!!) and unlocked make-up and hairstyles, meaning I can have grungy red make-up pink hair in the game too - yay! Now my main goal is to stock all of the goth clothes and turn everyone in the city into punk rockers, wish me luck!
What do you guys think of my character? Would you give New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward a try?
